NOTE: I’ll be going on a blogging vacation between December 18 and 31, during which there may or may not be any posts. But, we’ll ring in the new year on January 1, 2024 with the 2023 version of Travel Hacking as Told by GIFs though, so no need to be up in arms. What’s this “may”, you ask? I’m soliciting for guest posts and I’ll use those during the regularly scheduled newsletter. They should be non-sponsored, non-promotional, non-political, and at least travel hacking or churning adjacent. Please reach out to me if you’re interested, it’ll be the third easiest gig you’ve ever gotten!

It’s short and sweet Tuesday!

  1. Rakuten’s in-store program has a card linked offer for 5%-10% cash back or 5x-10x Membership Rewards points on up to $300 in purchases at Staples, good up to four times for spend through December 24.

    This pairs nicely with fee-free Visa $200 gift cards running through Saturday, and with monthly American Express Business Gold credits. (Thanks to Doug)
  2. has 10% off of electronic Visa gift cards using promo code VISACHEER or HOLIDAYVISA10, limit three per transaction, and $2,000 per rolling 48 hours.

    Don’t forget go through a shopping portal, but lately portals haven’t been paying cash back at when using a promo code.

Have a nice Tuesday friends!

The fifth easiest gig you’ve ever gotten.
