If you have a Barclay’s credit card, Check your email inbox for a 60,000 miles or $600 spend offer ($3,000 spend required). So far, people have received the offer on:
- Arrival (no annual fee version)
(HT: Windbag Miles)
American Express is currently offering a $25 statement credit on $250 in spend at BestBuy in-store or online. A little bird told me that you can sell a $250 BestBuy gift card at between 99% and 101%, netting you some spend and some cash back.
Also, check your inbox for a (boring) offer from Amex for a $2 statement credit for using contactless payments, up to 5 times.
Too bad it doesn’t compare to this offer:
Apparently Walmart is rolling out a POS software update which blocks money order purchases for swipes of above $49.99 for prepaid Visa or MasterCard gift cards from the BlackHawk Network (BHN), which is the network that issues prepaid cards for both Staples and Simon.
You can currently still load GoBank / Serve at the registers or money center, and so far US Bank issued gift cards are not affected.
If you’re like me, you need another Amex Platinum card like you need a hole in the head. But, here’s a better sign up bonus for an American Express Platinum card that’s the best I’ve ever seen:
I think this is an affiliate link of Resy.com, so they’ll likely get something if you use their link. I’d give you a non-affiliate link if I knew of one, but I don’t, sorry. 🤷♀️
Cash App is offering 10% back on Grocery, up to $7.50, expiring in 3 days. (In case you’re not aware of Cash App, it’s a free cash management debit card and mobile app designed to transfer money from venture capitalists’ bank accounts to startups to your wallet.)
In case that doesn’t strike your fancy, Meijer Grocery and Staples are both offering fee free or better Visa gift cards this week.
Finally, there’s a good $750 sign up bonus for the Chase Ink Unlimited no annual fee card. See DoctorOfCredit for more details.
Sample venture capitalist:
Sam’s Club is selling Uber gift cards at a 12% discount. These work for Uber Eats to help take some sting out of the delivery fee and markups. Go through a shopping portal for an extra discount. Rakuten’s portal is known to pay out on gift cards too.
Between you and me though, they won’t work for delivery of Taco Bell or McDonalds for some reason, or, I wish there was some reason.
I was sad when MileNerd.com effectively shut down around Christmas 2018, because we lost something precious in the frequent flyer community. His site had a simple message: “Just the most miles in the fewest words possible.” As far as I know, we as a community have nothing like that anymore … at least not until now.
My goal is to try and be a new iteration of MileNerd with lots of signal and little noise. I’m probably not as funny as he is, as shorted winded as he is, or as plugged in to the community as he is but — Ok, there is no but.
To a bright future!
