Membership Reward Points Post Quickly for Dollar Shave Club & Kate Spade AMEX Offers

Good morning everyone, greetings from toasty Tucson, AZ.  A few days ago, I added a Dollar Shave Club and Kate Spade AMEX Offer to my American Express cards.  With Dollar Shave Club, I purchased a $10 Dollar Shave Club eGift Card and earned 1,000 American Express Membership Reward Points.  With Kate Spade, I purchased a $250 Kate Spade eGift Card and earned 5,000 American Express Membership Reward Points.  I then sold both egift cards to The Plastic Merchant (my go-to gift card reselling site).

StayBridge Suites Near SFO

The hotel is a short drive away from SFO or a short 2 minute walk from the San Bruno BART Station.  This is a free, very informal travel meetup.  I will bring some name tags, wear my infamous Travel with Grant shirt, and bring some snacks.  If you are interested in attending, please go to Dan’s post and fill out the Evite registration so we can let the hotel know how many people are planning on attending.  The only request that Dan has is that every should bring some snacks or drinks that we can share with the group.

I’m looking forward to seeing a few Bay Area travel hackers tonight.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Targeted Q2 Credit Card Offers Part 2: 10,000 JetBlue TrueBlue Points & US Bank Club Carlson $25 Statement Credit

Good evening everyone.  After going 0 for 3 with good targeted credit card offers this morning (Targeted Q2 Credit Card Offers: 4,000 Hyatt Points, 3,000 IHG Reward Points & 2,500 Lufthansa Miles), I have 2 fairly decent offers to share.  Up first, I have the Barclay JetBlue Credit Card with 10,000 bonus TrueBlue Points after spending $750 in April, May, and June.  10,000 TrueBlue Points is worth ~$150 to me, so that represents a return of 6.67% ($150 / $2,250).  This is a pretty good offer, so I will probably go for this offer.
