Lots of great deals are ending tomorrow. Did you remember to…
–Finish quarterly bonus spending on your Chase Freedom card?
You can still go to Costco, BJs, or Sam’s Club and buy gift cards to lock in 5 points per dollar. Even local wholesale clubs like Brooklyn’s Bingo Wholesale qualify. You can also earn 5 points per dollar on department stores and drug stores and they sell gift cards as well.
5 points per dollar are worth a minimum of 7.5% cash back on your purchase if you have a Sapphire Reserve, though used as miles they can even be worth 75% cash back if you play your cards right.
You can also register to start earning 5 points per dollar next week on gas and local commuter transportation.
-Complete spending on expiring AMEX Offers?
Check your account to see if you have saved offers expiring for Amazon, Best Buy, Dell, Lowes, Macys, Newegg, Sears, Staples, Sunglass Hut, etc, and stock up on gift cards now!
-Complete a Starwood spend bonus?
Some cardholders, myself included, were targeted for bonus Starpoints for spending by 12/31. You had to have registered for this by 10/31.
-Make a tax deductible donation to your favorite charity?
Charity tax deduction laws may change in 2017, so now is a good time to lock in deductions based on 2016 tax law. Have extra AMEX or Visa gift cards lying around? Donate them to your favorite charity for a tax deduction!
-Finish your airline fee spending on AMEX Gold and Platinum cards?
Lock in gift cards for your favorite airline.
-Finish spending at small businesses to earn double points with AMEX?
It’s no SBS, but if you will be spending at small businesses anyway it’s worth earning double points. With an AMEX Everyday Preferred you can lock in gift cards at a local small business grocery to earn 5.5 points per dollar that can be worth at least 11% cash back if you have a AMEX Business Platinum card.
-Convert 20K Starpoints into 32.5K Cathay Pacific miles?
See the post for lots of great uses of Asia Miles, including a round-trip on Cathay Pacific from JFK-Vancouver in business class for just 50K miles and in first class for just 70K miles.
-Take advantage of Uber’s Airport and Android offers?
-Save $20 off Uber in NYC, Miami, or other cities?
-Transfer AMEX points into Avios with a 50% bonus?
The cost to use Avios for a first class award has gone way down. Unfortunately American’s award availability has become horrendous.
