Discounted iTunes gift cards at Costco; stack w/ coupon?

Costco is again offering discounted iTunes gift codes. The $100 denomination is out of stock, but they currently have a $200 gift code for $164.99 or a $25 gift code for $21.59. Prices are valid through 12/16 or until they run out of stock.

Easy points: 3% off Five Back Visas, stack with 1% portal rewards

Giftcardmall is offering a terrific promotion that I’m sure won’t last: 3% off Five Back Visa Gift Cards (scheduled for 12/7-12/9, but I wouldn’t bet on it lasting longer than a day). That’s a nice deal that doesn’t come around often. Unfortunately, Giftcardmall can be a hard nut to crack — like Chuck at Doctor of Credit, I can’t seem to get an order through with them. If you can, you’ll come out ahead on these cards no…

Extra 1x at Walmart.com and other retailers

There’s a new offer out this morning to earn an extra Membership Rewards point per dollar at Walmart.com through 12/31/17. This would be in addition to your normal earnings. My wife and I found this on almost all of our cards that earn Membership Rewards, so this one looks to be widely available. Additionally, previously-targeted offers for an extra 1x at places like Exxon-Mobile, Toys R Us, etc now appear on the “Earn more points all year long” site…

Chase is out with another great offer for using Chase Pay: Spend $20+ at eBags, earn 2,000 Ultimate Rewards points. As is the case with the Walmart.com offer and the Best Buy in-store offer, this works with Chase Freedom, Freedom Unlimited, Sapphire, and Sapphire Preferred cards.
