20% Off Lowe’s Gift Cards with Citi ThankYou Points (1.25 CPP) (Promo Expires on 7/13)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday.  I just received an email from Citi regarding my Citi Double Cash Credit Card, but the promo is really about getting 20% off Lowe’s Gift Cards (both physical and digital).  From today (Friday, July 9) through Tuesday, July 13, you can get Lowe’s GCs for 20% off when you pay with Citi ThankYou Points.  For example, a $100 Lowe’s GC normally costs 10,000 Citi ThankYou Points, but during this promo, it only costs 8,000 Citi ThankYou Points.  This comes out to a value of 1.25 cents per point (CPP) or 1.375 CPP if you have a Citi Rewards+ Credit Card.

Venmo Announces New Fees for Receiving Payments of Goods and Services & Instant Transfer Withdrawals

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  Last night, I received an email regarding “New and upcoming changes to Venmo” – a pretty generic looking email with generic looking text that I skimmed through and almost deleted.  Buried in the text were 2 changes about seller transaction fees and instant transfer fees.  I decided to dig into these changes to see what they really meant for me and other Venmo users.  Here are the 2 changes that I researched:

3) Effective July 20, 2021, users who receive payments that are identified by senders as for goods and services will be charged a seller transaction fee of 1.9% + $0.10.
4) Effective August 2, 2021, the fee for instant transfers will be 1.5% per instant transfer ($0.25 minimum fee, $15 maximum fee).
