    Triple Cash Back Week at Ebates

    Ebates, one of my favorite cash back shopping portals, is running a Triple Cash Back Week promotion. Beginning today, get triple cashback from top stores when you click through their portal. If you’re not familiar with shopping portals, you can read my full primer here. In short, shopping portals are websites that provide links to various retailers’ websites. In return for directing customers to their site, those retailers pay a commission to the portal for each customer that makes a qualifying purchase. The portal then allots a portion of that commission–in the form of points or cash–to the original customer. For example, this week you can get 6% cashback at Staples and 18% at eBags. Check…

    Many New Amex Offers: Here’s a Run Down

    UPDATE: As expected, the maximum number of Card Members have already enrolled in #AmexDell offer. The others are still available to add to your card. A bunch of new Amex Offers have appeared over the last couple days-many are publicly available to add to your card(s) using twitter hashtags. Act fast to add the one’s you’re interested in, as these offers often sell out quickly. For newcomers to these deals, check out my primer: Amex Offers = Too Good To Miss Out!. I wrote about how to connect your American Express card to your social media account and how to add offers to your card via Twitter, Facebook, or your americanexpress.com account.

    Amex Shop Small Offer – 2x Rewards at Small Businesses

    American Express is once again offering incentives to their cardholders to spend at small businesses during the Shop Small promotion. This year, American Express Card Members can enroll their eligible American Express Card(s) and earn 2X rewards when they Shop Small for the entire holiday season–now through December 31.

How it Works First, enroll your eligible American Express Personal or OPEN Small Business Card by going to amex.co/shopsmalloffer. A list of all eligible cards can be found here. Once you’re enrolled, all purchases at qualifying small businesses will earn…

    $5 Free Starbucks from Visa Checkout

    Update: This offer has been extended to August 29, 2016. To me, one of the only things better than Startucks coffee is FREE Starbucks coffee. That’s why I’m excited about the current promotion from Visa Checkout. Be one of the first 200,000 to buy an eGift Card (min. $10) on Starbucks.com and pay using Visa Checkout between 8/4/16 – 8/18/16 and get a Bonus Load of $5. This offer isn’t quite as lucrative as the last Starbucks/Visa Checkout promotion back in May. That one gave you a $10 Bonus Load for purchasing a $10 eGift card. It’s important to note, this doesn’t mean you simply checkout by paying with a Visa card. You…
