Good afternoon everyone, I was catching up on Doctor of Credit (it’s almost a full time job to read everything they publish on a daily basis) and just read the post Chase Offers: Save Up To 30% At Staples (Business & Personal Offers). The post is a few days old, but I am glad I read it. I had no idea that Staples had a new Chase Offer where you could get $30, $20, or $10 back on a $100 purchase. As luck would have it, I have 3 business credit cards that each received a different offer ($30 on Chase Ink Cash, $20 on Chase Ink Plus, and $10 on Marriott Biz). I loaded the offers to my business credit cards and drove to my local Staples.
Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. If you still need to do some holiday shopping, today is a great day to get your shopping done. Today is Green Monday and many stores are offering deals. Plus, don’t forget to earn cash back today – Ebates is offering double cash back at 600+ stores today only. In other news, if you have the Google Express AMEX Offer (spend $50 or more and get a $20 statement credit) or the Office Depot AMEX Offer (spend $50 or more and get a $10 statement credit), I have some data points to share regarding my experiences with those 2 AMEX Offers. These AMEX Offers came out a few weeks ago, so check your AMEX account to see if you have either of these offers available. Let’s start with the Google Express AMEX Offer.
Google Express allows you to shop at many different stores (including Staples) and check out once through Google Express. Luckily for me, Google Express has gift cards for sale through Staples. I linked the AMEX Offer to a few of my AMEX cards and purchased a few gift cards to give as gifts.
Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. I spent Saturday at Treasure Island (the island in the San Francisco Bay between San Francisco and Oakland) at the Treasure Island Flea Market and at Woods Beer Company. On Sunday, I took my girlfriend back to school shopping at Staples (she is a teacher and needed to purchase school supplies for her classroom). While we were checking out, she told the cashier she was a teacher and needed a lot of school supplies for her classroom. Without missing a beat, the cashier reached under the counter and pulled out a big envelope. Inside the envelope, there were a few freebies along with some very good coupons. The cashier was a really cool guy and let her use the coupons on that purchase. The envelopes are supposed to be for teachers only, so be prepared to show your teacher ID card, if the cashier asks.
Buenos dias everyone. A few months ago, I wrote about VirtualPostMail, the service I use to receive, scan, and forward my physical mail. I typically have them collect items for me over the course of a few weeks, and then I select the items I want to keep and have them shipped to wherever I’m going next. Since I was heading to Washington, DC for work last week, I asked VPM to mail a package to my post office box in Washington, DC a few days before I was going to arrive. This package included several important items:
- My replacement AT&T Access More Credit Card (since someone tried to hack my account)
- My new Discover It Credit Card in a different design
- My Amazon Prime Store Credit Card
- 1 $50 Hotels.com gift card from Amazon
- 2 $50 Petco gift cards
- 6 iTunes gift cards from Staples (3 x $100 and 3 x $50)
- 2 sets of Cabela’s gift cards I purchased from SVM on eBay
- My Hyatt Explorist welcome packet
- My new Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance card
Good afternoon everyone, I hope your weekend is going well. In January, Staples ran a Free After Rebate (FAR) deal on McAfee Antivirus software (Frequent Miler’s post). Long story short, I purchased 10 copies of the software, submitted the Staples Easy Rebate and received the Visa Gift Card rebate a few weeks ago. I haven’t downloaded or installed the antivirus software (I’m an ESET Smart Security kind of guy), so the download link and serial numbers have been taking up space in my inbox.
