This is a reminder that several big Ultimate Rewards opportunities end with the close of this month (Sunday):
Sears 20X: Freedom cardholders
If you have a Chase Freedom Visa or MasterCard, you can get 10 points per dollar at Sears this month by shopping through the Ultimate Rewards Mall. With a simple double-dip trick, you can double your earnings. See “Sears 20X” for details.
Buy.com 20X: Ink cardholders
If you have a Chase Ink Bold, Ink Plus, Ink Cash, or Ink Classic card you can get 10 points per dollar at Buy.com this month by shopping through the Ultimate Rewards Mall. If you’re feeling lucky, you can double your earnings. See “Buy.com 20X!” for details. Please read the comments of that post to see other readers’ experiences before jumping into this deal.
Sony 10X: Ink cardholders
If you have an Ink card you can get 10 points per dollar at Sony this month by shopping through the Ultimate Rewards Mall. Previous experiments have shown that you can double dip by buying physical gift cards and then using them, but its too late in the month to count on getting those cards in time (e-gift cards don’t work). See “Sony 30X success” for details. Also, make sure to avoid products excluded via the T&C:
Not eligible on Sony outlet, refurbished, clearance items, and Sony Ericsson locked phones, or Employee Purchase Programs.
Bloomingdale’s 10X: Sapphire Cardholders
If you have the Chase Sapphire or Sapphire Preferred card you can get 10 points per dollar at Bloomingdale’s when shopping through the Ultimate Rewards Mall. Unfortunately, double dips do not work (see “Bloomingdale’s Only 10X”). However, Deals We Like outlined how to maximize savings with this opportunity. See “Use Chase for 40% off at Bloomingdales.”
