Weekend Update


A couple of quick updates:

    American Express OPEN savings for gift card purchases:Several days ago I wrote about leveraging American Express OPEN savings to buy gift cards in my post about how to maximize points at Amazon.com, but I hadn’t actually tried it at that point.  So, I ran out and bought a $100 Amazon gift card at OfficeMax using my Amex business card. This morning I logged into my Amex account and saw that $5 in savings was now listed in my OPEN report! This means that I’ve verified this technique.


    Magazines.com 80X: A contributor on Milepoint reports successfully double dipping at magazines.com through the Ultimate Rewards Mall for a combined 80 points per dollar! I’m working on replicating this and will hopefully have more news and details soon.
    UPDATE: the same contributor just posted that he had misread the results.  He only received the original 40 points.
