  1. I tried an Extreme Stack, thanks for the inspiration:
    -$299 Bose noise-cancelling headphones (cuz you keep posting about crazy coach class fare sales–have 6 hr flight in coach coming up, argh)
    -United shopping portal (try to keep daughter’s miles from expiring +500 bonus miles)
    -Signed into Staples (or Staples Rewrds? Not sure…)
    -VISA check-out to get $25 off
    -Used one of those pesky $20 Staples rebate cards
    -Chase Ink VISA for 5x UR

    Did I miss anything? Wish me luck!

  2. What a bummer gift cards are excluded. Last offer they specifically allowed them thru the promo period. Any thoughts? Worth taking a chance in case the bonus points from say a sears gc purchase post anyhow, as has happened several times before. Trouble is bonus points can take 30 days to post.
