This will be a short post. I spent most of yesterday working on a post that I ended up losing interest in (it happens occasionally), then I spent the rest of the day creating an Extreme Stacking Sears and Kmart page that shows how to save up to 80% off any Sears or Kmart purchase. That left me little time to write this post yesterday evening, especially since my son was bugging me to come watch Monday night’s recording of Better Call Saul. I didn’t want to disappoint him…
Extreme Stacking Updates
Last month I introduced a new page on this site: Extreme Stacking. The idea is to provide one place to go to learn (or to be reminded of) how to maximize savings and rewards when shopping with various merchants. In addition to several Extreme Stacking pages previously in place, we now have the aforementioned Sears and Kmart page. Also, our new Lab Manager, Anita, has contributed an Extreme Stacking PetSmart page which shows how to save about 30% off all PetSmart orders.
To find the Extreme Stacking home page, go to the “Earn More” menu on this site, or browse directly to this new URL: ExtremeStacking.com.
At the time of this writing, we have Extreme Stacking pages in place for 1800Flowers, British Airways, Kohls, PetSmart, and Sears. We’ve also made many updates to the key “Best options for buying merchant gift cards” page.
One more thing: I’ve edited the 1800Flowers page to state that you can apply two gift cards per order online. I was surprised to stumble upon this last week as I previously believed that we were only able to apply one per order. This is great because the sweet spot for earning miles with 1800Flowers is with $30 orders. However, the sweet spot for buying discounted gift cards is $50 (Amex often offers $15 back for purchases of $50 or more at 1800Flowers). Now, we’ll be able to make better use of those gift cards.
That’s all for now. Please check out the Extreme Stacking page and let me know if you have ideas or requests for additional content.
