Buy books for 40X



I’ve written quite a bit in the past about offering 40 points per dollar through the Ultimate Rewards Mall.  Most of these posts were reports of attempts to double dip by buying and then using gift cards.  Initially, a half double dip was possible: gave 40X for gift card purchases and then another 20X when using the gift cards, for a total of 60X overall.  Unfortunately, that loophole quickly closed and that was the end of the double dip. 

40X is still an awesome return for magazine purchases, but if you’re like me you already get too many magazines.  One can never have too many books though!

In the Ultimate Rewards Mall, terms & conditions state explicitly that book purchases are not awarded bonus points:


Luckily, this restriction is very easy to get around.  Simply buy yourself an e-gift card first and then use it to buy a book.  Gift card purchases are awarded 40X:


So, if you’re shopping for books give this a try!  Note that while their prices are not competitive with, you might be able to get to price match.
