Good morning everyone, hopefully you had a fun and safe New Years Eve. January 1 marks the beginning of Q1 and the new Chase Freedom categories are now live (gas stations and local commuter transportation). According to Travel Codex: “Local commuter transportation includes the following ride share services and nearly any public transit agency: Uber, Lyft, Sidecar, Taxis, Local and suburban passenger commuter train and subway fares (excl. Amtrak), Local commuter tickets, and Local commuter ferry tickets.”
Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is off to a great start. If you want to save a little money during the last few holiday shopping days, check out your Chime Card offers. There are several offers for movie theaters (Star Wars anyone?), cable providers (college football bowl games anyone?), car insurance (not as much fun to pay for), dining out at Chipotle and In-N-Out, and several other retail offers.
Good morning from beautiful Carmel, CA. I hope your pre-Thanksgiving weekend is going well, wherever you may be. Very slow day in terms of deals (all the good deals will be coming out for Black Friday and Cyber Monday). I checked my Chime Card and here are the current offers that show up on my account. The best 2 deals are for Panera Bread ($2 off $10) and Walmart ($3 off $25).
Good afternoon everyone. If you can read and understand the title, you are an experienced travel hacker / MSer. My friend Mike sent me a picture of a current promotion running at his local Von’s (Safeway) grocery store. Purchase $150 or more in Visa or American Express Gift Cards and you will revive a coupon for $15 off your next $25 grocery purchase. The promo is running from November 4 to 17 and the coupon must be redeemed within 7 days of your gift card purchase. Assuming you buy gift cards on the last day of the promo (November 17), you have until November 24 (2 days before Thanksgiving) to redeem the coupon. This coupon could be great if you have lots of Thanksgiving grocery store purchases to make. I don’t know if you can redeem more than 1 coupon per transaction, but get creative.
Here are the full terms of the promo:
Updated 11/1/2015 at 11am PT: added a screenshot of the Shop Small AMEX Offer for AMEX Business cards ($20 off $100).
Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween. There is a new batch of AMEX Offers to share today. Instead of Small Business Saturday (which would have been November 28 this year), American Express replaced that promotion with Shop Small in November. If you use your enrolled AMEX card at any “qualifying small business” in November, you will get a $10 statement credit after making a $10 purchase. The offer appeared on my Platinum, Blue Cash Everyday, and Old Blue Cash (no love for my AMEX Everyday cards).
There is also an offer for AMEX Business Cards: you will get a $20 statement credit after making a $100 purchase (thanks for the screenshot, Alex)
