1800Flowers retroactively limits 1750 point deal to 5 orders per customer

5 order limit

1800Flowers periodically offers 1750 points per order with Southwest Airlines and JetBlue.  When combined with tricks for buying discount gift cards, this has been a good way of indirectly buying miles at a very good price. I’ve written about the recent Southwest offer several times recently, and I published the JetBlue deal on Friday (found here). Somewhere along the way, the Southwest deal stopped working but then came back to life with a new promo…

9 awesome credit card perks you might not know about

Credit card perks

Many credit cards have terrific perks that make them worth keeping despite their annual fees.  A couple of examples that come to mind are the IHG card’s annual free night certificate that can be used at any IHG property worldwide; and the Citi Prestige’s $250 airfare credit and 4th Night Free hotel benefits.  But, those are examples of headline perks – the perks that are widely advertised and well known.  Today we’ll look at some…

Quick Update: Citi Premier and 1800Flowers deals MIA


Two unrelated deals appear to have died yesterday.  In both cases I think it’s likely they’ll be back so I’m marking them “MIA” (Missing in Action) rather than dead. Citi Premier 40K signup bonus gone The public Citi Premier 40K offer disappeared a while ago, but Shawn quickly found a working link and posted it to our Best Offers page.  Unfortunately, that link died at some point yesterday. Citi has made huge strides in making…

About those hacked Hyatt gift cards…

Hacked Hyatt Gift Card

One of my gift cards had…

1800Flowers: How to apply 2 gift cards per order, and a big bug to watch out for

1800Flowers 2 gift cards per order

I had long been under the impression that 1800Flowers.com did not allow more than one gift card to be used per order.  Why?  Because when you click to enter a gift card, you see a message stating “Limit one Gift Card, Voucher, Fresh Rewards pass and/or Saving pass per order.” Seems clear enough. Testing the waters After you enter your gift card information, you should see something like this: GiftCard/Voucher 987654321012345678 has been applied ($20.01…

Rocking the Staples Amex Offer

Staples Amex Offer

Yesterday morning, I was eating breakfast when my iPhone started bleeping.  Shawn had just published a Frequent Miler Quick Deal: Targeted Amex Offer – $25 off $100+ at Staples.com.  Awesome!  I ran over to my laptop to see if any of my Amex cards had received this targeted offer. I didn’t have high hopes.  With the past 4 or 5 Amex Offers that Shawn has published, I hadn’t been targeted for any of them.  Plus,…
