When I was glancing at this morning’s portal alerts, I noticed that cash back at HP.com has increased to 20% back via Ebates. This would stack with the $75 back on $350 or more Amex Offer for a really nice savings on a computer or the many accessories sold by HP.
This rate matches the 15-month historical high as seen at CashBackMonitor.com:
Again, it stacks perfectly with the current widely-available (on business cards) Amex Offer for $75 back on $350 or more:
Don’t forget that Amex business cards are eligible for Amex OPEN Savings, which would net you 5% back as a statement credit or 1 extra Membership Rewards point per dollar. You can adjust your preference here.
Reports of successful double dips are definitely mixed in our Laboratory. That said, several members of our Frequent Miler Insiders group have reported successfully receiving miles on gift card purchases through the United Airlines shopping portal. I purchased gift cards through United this week (United is offering 10 miles per dollar). On top of 10 miles per dollar, United’s portal is offering 1500 bonus miles on $350 in purchases (before tax). I received the emails that the purchases tracked; others have reported receiving the miles deposited in their United MileagePlus accounts. My gift cards arrived about 2.5 hours after I placed my order, though some people have reported delivery taking a few days.
If interested in trying a double dip, I would suggest purchasing a gift card through MileagePlus Shopping and then using the gift card through Ebates. The most recent report in our Laboratory indicates that an order placed using gift cards and paying the balance with a credit card correctly tracked for full Ebates cash back on the entire order price.
I’m in the market for a new laptop. I was planning to either purchase through HP or Lenovo to take advantage of the current Amex Offers. I’m hoping to have a chance to sit down and take a closer look at HP laptops later today, but if readers make any great finds, let me know in the comments.
Stacked with $75 back on $350 and a potential double dip, 20% cash back at HP is great. I happen to be in the market for a laptop, so this one is attractive to me from that perspective — but HP also sells a number of accessories like headphones, Bluetooth speakers, gaming mice, etc. There are plenty of items that could be a solid deal and probably even decent for resale if you’re stacking what is essentially 20% back via Amex Offer plus 5% back Amex OPEN savings plus 20% back through Ebates — and if you’re also earning 10 miles per dollar (and a one-time 1500 mile bonus on $350) on top, that’s icing on the cake. Whether you’re looking to stack savings or earn a couple of bucks while you rake in some spend/rewards, HP is worth a look today.
