Those who found the offer on a Business Platinum card could make out even better since that card offers a twice-annual $100 credit for Dell purchases (subject to registration, available once between January and June and once between July and December). You could currently do some stacking with those discounts that turns at least one deal into…

$10 Amazon credit w/ Discover 1-click payment setting [Targeted]

While that sounded to me like it would just mean inflated rates and non-chain hotels, it looks like there are chain options and there are some very good deals possible. As with anything like this, YMMV — there are surely bad deals to be found as well (and furthermore, the beta is only available to select users for now…
