The 1800Flowers Amex Offer is Back. Do we care?

1800Flowers

1800Flowers often shows up as an Amex Offer: Spend $50, Get $15 Back. This used to be a great start towards huge savings.  It was possible to earn 20% back through cashback portals, buy $50 1800Flowers gift cards, earn 30% back from this Amex offer, then use those gift cards for even more rewards.  At times I was able to stack so many deals that I actually earned money on each order! That was then.…

Great deal: Go to the movies every day for $10 a month

MoviePass is an interesting service that offers “unlimited” movie theater movies each month for one price. My wife and I subscribed in the past and loved it, but stopped when the price went up to $40 a month. Today, it caught my eye when I saw that they are running a deal for just $9.95 per month per person for unlimited movies in the movie theater. There are a few catches — but this is a great deal…

Apple Watch sale at Macy’s, may stack with Discover for 10% back

Macy’s is advertising a “surprise sale” today. Part of the sale is a discount on Apple watches, which should stack with 10% cash back from Discover (which will double to 20% if you’re in the first year of a Discover IT card). That cash back could make these prices a great deal. One note of caution: Most portals explicitly exclude Apple products from earning cash back at Macy’s. Discover doesn’t include that exclusion on its site. I’d suggest taking…

Staples gift card rebates may not be working properly

Yesterday, we posted a quick deal for a $15 rebate on $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards at Staples. This rebate was advertised in the Staples weekly ad online (on page 14), but readers are reporting that they are not receiving a rebate receipt. Additionally, some readers over at Doctor of Credit reported rebate submissions last week (for last week’s Visa Gift Card rebate) that were denied. At the moment, it seems that the rebate problems stem…

Easy 5X or 5%: $15 back on $300 in Mastercard gift cards

Update: Many readers have reported not receiving a rebate receipt this week. It seems that the problem this week is definitely related to which SKU numbers are included in the rebate. While a couple of people have had success with the store manager honoring the rebate on the spot in-store, another reader reported that the rebate receipt only printed when buying $50 denomination cards. This may require more communication with the Staples rebate processor to get…
