Ebags AMEX Offer and Updates Regarding US Bank FlexPerks, Citi American Airlines, and Chase Southwest Airlines Retention Offers

Good evening everyone, I had an interesting day today.  I took my cousin’s Australia Shepherd puppy for a walk this morning and grabbed the wrong set of keys.  I was locked out of the apartment for a few hours and had a very interest afternoon with stops at the Apple Store (buying a Mophie portable battery), Panera Bread (their table-side ordering is amazing, btw), and Petco (lunch for the pup).  Now that I am safely/warmly back inside, here are some random news to share.

There is an AMEX Offer for Ebags.com where you can get a $15 statement credit after making a purchase of $75 or more.  I noticed that Ebags sells gift cards online, but there is nothing on Gift Card Granny regarding buy back rate.

There are some very high online shopping portal payouts for Ebags, so there might be some money making opportunities available if you are in the resale market.

I have been on a roll lately with retention offers.  If you haven’t already, I recommend reading these posts:

I didn’t mention this offer yet, but I was able to get a retention bonus on my US Bank FlexPerks Credit Card.  Usually, you can use 3,500 FlexPoints to offset the $49 annual fee.  Since I didn’t want to use my valuable FlexPoints to pay the annual fee, I called in and got a retention offer for 3,500 bonus FlexPoints.  I will pay the annual fee with cash, not points.

In other news, the 250 bonus FlexPoints posted from my e-Rewards sign up (more info here).

3,500 Bonus FlexPoints Customer Appreciation Points

This is a follow up to my Citi retention offer post.  I got my 1,000 bonus American Airlines miles for spending $1,000 (at Target) on my Citi American Airlines Executive Credit Card.  I just finished spending $1,000 on my Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Credit Card, so I should get 5,000 bonus Hilton HHonors Points next statement.  See the Citi retention post above for more info.

Citi AA Exec Card Bonus Points

This is a follow up to my post about the Southwest Airlines devaluation.  I decided to call Chase and see if they would offer me anything to keep both my Plus and Premier Southwest Airlines credit card.  Yes to both credit cards and the bonus “loyalty” points posted to my statement.

Southwest Airlines Plus Premier Loyalty Bonus Points

Last but not least, a reader sent me a working link for the Chase Southwest Airlines Premier Credit Card.  This offer is targeted for people on Southwest Airlines flights, but it is available to everyone.  Click here to learn more and apply.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.  Have a great day everyone!

P.S. I am working on planning the SF Meetup this Saturday afternoon.  I have a few places that readers recommended, so I will take a look at the locations and let you all know tomorrow morning.  I hope to see some local Bay Area readers this weekend.

    Crap…I thought the meetup was on the 15th!!! Guess that’s more time for my GF and I to check out the Wharf…maybe next time.

    I started reading your blog last April and it is a tribute to your coaching that my girlfriend and I are staying at Fisherman’s Wharf and flying from Denver for all of $22. Thanks Grant…you the man!!!

      I personally use an OGIO backpack, they are very comfy and I bring it with me when I travel. I’m not sure if Ebags has them, but they should carry a few.


Got something to say?
