Note: I’m now back from a disconnected vacation but still catching up. I hope to respond to everyone by the end of the day today though.
Let’s talk about a few interesting deals that have surfaced:
1. The Target Redcard debit card $80 sign-up bonus is back-again, (you get $40 off of $40 in-store and another $40 off of $40 online) with no hard-pull through March 15. As usual, you can churn this one during the promotional period and use a P2 to get the deal at least a couple of times for each person, see Target Redcard Hacks for more information.
Recent reports suggest that you should wait five business days between closing an old Redcard and opening a new one to avoid any hiccups.
2. Costco online is selling $500 Southwest and Alaska gift cards for 10% off. These may be ever-so-slightly interesting for gift card resale, but they’re definitely interesting if you’re looking at paid travel on one of those airlines anyway.
3. Kroger.com has $10 off of $150 or more in Visa and Mastercard gift cards using promo code MAR2022. Even if you don’t live in an area with Krogers you can still purchase these. The bad news? They’re not US Bank gift cards like in-store, but rather they’re Metabank gift cards processed by Blackhawk.
The other bad news? Your order will probably be cancelled if your account is less than 30 days old.
Any good news? Well, Metabank does issue different BINs.
- It may be targeted (but just ask if the offer is attached when applying)
- If you play shenanigans with your Chase card portfolio, maybe skip this one to avoid any eyes on your accounts
- Don’t run prepaid gift cards or your own credit cards through this account, find a trusted third party and use their credit card
Am I going to do this one? I honestly can’t decide. Also, who is asking me all of these questions?
