I’m too lazy to scroll the sites myself. I’ve been waiting for your inevitable post. Uh oh! I think I may be one of the people they rant about on flyertalk.

Anyone located the FAR deals at OD? Frys has almost $2500 in FAR deals at the moment, although no bonus points or cashback that I could find.

Does this work for lowes gift cards? Thanks

To clarify, I meant can you you use ink bold to buy lowes gift cards at this rate?

I just bought a washer and dryer from Lowes using my AMEX prepaid card. That turns out to be 15x points on about $1,900. You do the math. SWEET!!

@Dustin – Go to the OD website and click on the Weekly Ad. Two items, from my quick browse. Or snoop around http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1201092/

Leftpinky: I don’t think so — it appears to be against the T&C.

I got a stack of Lowes Gift Card that I plan on using to renovate my home, I’m looking to get the most points or discounts on it.

Have anyone gotten UR points via Ultimate Mall using Lowes Gift Card? If not, what about making $1 (partial purchase) with Sapphire card on top of Lowes GC purchase to get the full reward?

I don’t see 10x when I log into UR. Does one need to have the Bold card? I have the Sapphire card………

I don’t see 10x when I log into UR. Does one need to have the Bold card? I have the Freedom card………

So 10 points thru UR plus 5 points for ink bold = 15% discount?

FrequentMiler

Grant: yes, you get a combined 15X. If you value points at only 1 penny each then it is a 15% rebate.

Do gift card purchases at OF through URM earn UR points?

ikonos

@Blue yes you will get the points but have to pay some with your credit card.

@ikonos, do you know if your able to apply the 10% moving coupon that you get at the Post Office for online orders through UR Mall?

Is there a maximum amount of Lowe’s Gift cards that you can use online?

If I use my ink bold to buy something for $1000 (laptop for example). I will have racked up 15,000 points… Now could I EXCHANGE (not return) the product for office depot credit / gift card, then use that credit/gc to purchase amex/visa/vanilla cards and be getting 15x points anywhere? I said not to return to the transaction will still appear the same to chase…

crazygreek: I have no idea if that would work, but I’d love to hear your results if you try!

@CrazyGreek

There is a difference between store credit/exchange card and gift card…correct? If that is the case, then I suspect, gift card will allow for that flexibility whereas store/exchange card does not.

I’m be interested in knowing.

F”n lowes. Ordered Fridge and stove online last night and they said would be delivered by 7/20. Today I get a call saying early August. Then went and ordered microwave through the UR mall and said I could pick up same day. I then get a call 15 min later that it will be three weeks.
