Monday Morning Sportsball Quarterbacking

It sound’s like for a lot of you, today’s a good time to move on from yesterday’s big hand-egg football game, so let’s dive in to something else:

  1. Office Depot/OfficeMax has a a $15 discount on $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards running through Saturday. To maximize:

    – Get two $200 cards rather than one $100 and one $200
    – Link your credit cards to dosh
    – Try for multiple transactions back-to-back

    These are Metabank Pathward gift cards. (Thanks to DoC)
  2. There are increased American Express Hilton card bonuses showing up both publicly and via referral for every card but the Aspire, which hasn’t changed:

    Hilton Honors Personal card: 100,000 points after $2,000 spend in six months
    Hilton Surpass Personal card: 150,000 points after $3,000 spend in six months
    Hilton Honors Business card: 165,000 points after $5,000 spend in three months

    My favorite of these is the business version because it offers two free night certificates with spend and doesn’t show on personal credit reports. As usual, try and get a referral from a friend to make their day if you’re going to apply.
  3. Frequent Miler notes that it’s now possible to enter alternate guest names on American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts bookings, which makes the $200 Platinum FHR credit more useful for sharing or on a marketplace.
