Today’s Escapades

Update #2, 01/07: Got all of my Staples gift cards today!  A couple of them were slightly smaller than what I expected, but still not bad at all for a deal that paid out $$$ for gift cards that earned tens of thousands of Ultimate Rewards points at 5 points per dollar and helped me complete the signup bonus threshold spending for my Chase business 3BM that netted over 125,000 signup points.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Update, 11/13: Staples has gone crazy and I’m all-in!  I’m currently due some $1,170 in Staples gift card rebates (which can be liquidated via Cardpool for $983 or used for rebate items) and have earned over 31,000 Ultimate Rewards points just in base spending on my Ink card, not even counting the 50,000 point signup bonus threshold help.  Amazon Payments works perfectly to cash out the Visa and Mastercard gift cards as described below.

So here’s where it gets crazy.  If you buy 3 of the $200 prepaid gift cards the system processes it for $135 in staples gift cards.  The fee on these cards is $6.95 each, so for $20.85 in fees I’ll earn over 3,100 points plus $135 in Staples gift cards (which can be liquidated for $113.40).  It’s probably a glitch, but I’ve got screenshots and printouts so they’ll be hard to argue with. Below are some of the combinations I tried on Monday.

In other news I continue to love CVS for bringing the Vanilla love to Cleveland and for having dozens of stores nearby 😀 You’ve made meeting my spending threshold on my recent App-O-Rama full of 4BMs and 3BMs easier than ever!

—————————————————————————-

Cleveland, home of the original Office Max, isn’t blessed with an Office Depot. The nearest ones that I could find are a couple hours away in Columbus, Detroit, and Pittsburgh.

In case you’re living under a rock, people have been stalking Office Depots for the past few weeks waiting for their latest supply of Vanilla Reload cards. The card costs $3.95 and can be cashed out at full value via Bluebird. Plus you earn 5 points per dollar with any Ink card. So for a $3.95 fee you earn 2,500 points, or 0.158 cents per point, or $127 at those rates to fly round-trip to Israel with United.

The current rumor is that Vanilla Reload cards have been pulled from Office Depot, but you can still get $500 gift cards at Office Depot for a $4.95 fee and then use that to buy a Vanilla Reload at one of dozens of stores that still carry them. That brings the fees up to $8.90 for 2,500 miles or 0.356 cents per points, or $284.80 for that round-trip to Israel with United.  Or just use the gift card for your everyday spending and earn 5 points per dollar everywhere.

Escapade #1:

As for me I went to a CVS and stocked up on Vanilla Reload cards to meet a spending threshold. It’s not nearly as lucrative, as there is a $3.95 fee and you only get 500 miles. Still buying miles at 0.79 cents is a great deal. The really nice thing though is to use that to meet a spending threshold. If you need to spend $5,000 to get 50,000 points then doing it like this will just cost you $39.50 and you’ll get those 50,000 points plus the 5,000 purchase points and you can use Bluebird to pay off your bill. You can use 40,000 Starpoints and transfer those to Flying Blue who can book you on Delta to fly to Israel with no fuel surcharges, though availability can be tough with Delta. At .79 cents per point that would run you $316 round-trip to Israel, though if you are getting points for opening a card and just need to meet a spend threshold then the cost will be much less than that.

I’ve already added the funds to my Bluebird account and can now cash it out for free.

Some DDF members have had success at Walgreens as well, post your experience in a comment.

Escapade #2:
I was browsing the DansDeals Forums on my Galaxy Nexus while I was out and read a post by member “DP7” that when you buy $100 in Visa or Mastercard gift cards at Staples you get a $15 Staples Gift card. The promotion runs through 11/24.

I happened to be passing by a Staples so I went in and they had plenty of those gift cards. You can get that rebate on up to 10 gift cards per address. So I plunked down $1,059.50 (The $59.50 were gift card fees) and had $1,000 in prepaid Mastercards.
-I used my Ink card, so first of all I got closer to a spending threshold bonus and I also earned 5,298 Ultimate Rewards points at 5 points per dollar.
-When I got home it took me less than 2 minutes to fill in my online easy rebate and receive confirmation with a tracking number. I’ll get $150 in Staples gift cards in the nest 4-6 weeks.
-I can now cash out those gift cards for free via Amazon Payments or I can also go buy Vanilla Reload cards and cash them out via Bluebird.
-When you add a gift card to Amazon Payments it does a $1 authorization that stops you from being able to completely cash it out until the authorization drops. One way to get around that is to use an incorrect expiration date when you add it to your Amazon account and then correct it right afterward. Then you will be able to spend the full gift card amount without having to wait for the authorization to fall off.
-Assuming I just use Amazon that’s $59.50 for $150 in Staples gift cards AND getting $1,000 closer to a spending threshold, AND getting 5,298 points that are worth about $100 to me.
-I can also sell the $150 in Staples gift cards to CardPool for $126 cash. That would leave me with 5,298 points that I paid $59.50 for but received a cash rebate of $126, so that’s negative $66.50 which means cash going back into my pocket for “buying” those points. Good luck figuring out the cost per mile on that one!
-Staples also runs promotions for free stuff after rebate fairly often, so that would be another way to cash out those gift cards if you didn’t want to take the 16% haircut that CardPool takes.

Not bad for a short weekend drive.

Tons Of Flying Blue Promo Award Availability To Israel…But Is It Worth It?

Related post: Which Miles To Use To Fly To Israel?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been blogging about about Air France/KLM Flying Blue’s promo awards for many years now. They’re a bit of a mixed bag. You can go to or from select cities in North America (the cities rotate every 2 months) and Europe for half of the regular rate. The good part about the awards is that Flying Blue counts Israel and Russia as part of Europe. The bad part is that they’re only good on Air France and KLM and are therefore subject to heavy fuel surcharges.

You can book these by logging into a Flying Blue account on AirFrance.com

The rate in coach is 12,500 miles each way and in business class it’s 25,000 miles each way.

That means you can transfer 20,000 Starpoints or 25,000 American Express Membership Rewards points into enough miles for a round-trip promo award ticket in coach or double those amounts for a round trip business class ticket.

Fuel surcharges for JFK-TLV round-trip add a whopping $540.  Searching for a ticket from 01/14-01/21 for example shows the cheapest option is $969 on KLM.  Thus using 20K Starpoints or 25K AMEX MR points miles is really only saving you $429 or a value of 2.15 cents per Starpoints or 1.72 cents per MR points.  Plus on top of that you don’t collect miles when using miles on an award ticket.

The current cities valid for travel in January or February are Chicago, Houston, JFK, Montreal, and Washington DC.

Another probably better option with Flying Blue is to use their miles to fly nonstop on Delta in coach (25K each way) or business (50K each way) without paying fuel surcharges.  To book these you’ll want to use the award calendar on Delta.com, locate “low” (green) level dates, and then plugin those dates on Air France to book them with Flying Blue miles with no fuel surcharges.  Low level dates on Delta can be hard to find at times though.

– Earn 3 points per dollar with American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card, 3 points per dollar with The Business Gold Rewards Card® from American Express OPEN, or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.

————————————————————————————————–

This is valid in either direction from Star Alliance carriers Air Canada and United.  $81.10 of this fare goes to line the pockets of the US and Canadian governments, so this is really a rock-bottom fare for this route.

This is only valid to or from Newark, if you want LGA or JFK (or if you want to go to other Canadian cities like Montreal) then consider using 9,000 BA Avios (or 7,000 AMEX MR points currently) to fly round-trip, though international taxes add $57 to that redemption.

Departures are available from now through 06/26/13.

A sample valid date is 01/14-01/21, but there is tons of availability.

To help find valid dates check the Orbitz box to search “3 days before and after” to help find other valid dates.

Or I highly recommend that you read about using ITA Software and use their awesome month-long calendar search to help find dates with cheap flights.

Signup For Carbonite And Get A $20 Amazon Gift Card

Update: Just 2 days remaining to signup for this offer!

Carbonite Offer Linky

Carbonite has a limited time offer running through 01/03/13 for a free $20 Amazon gift card if you sign up via my link above.  They’ll also give me a $20 Amazon gift card if you use my link above and I thank you in advance for your support as always.

I don’t need to tell you how critical it is to backup your data.  Trying to recover data from a damaged hard drive or solid state drive can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars and is often not even possible. A friend of mine recently dropped their laptop and it cost them hundreds of dollars just to retrieve some pictures off of it and none of the pictures were in the original folders so that became another hassle to deal with.

A hard drive works with moving parts and has a limited life expectancy.  Eventually they do die.  Even if you backup data onto an external hard drive those can die as well (it’s happened to me already a couple times unfortunately) and to lose precious documents and pictures is never fun.

I’ve been using Carbonite for some time now and it works in the background of your computer to automatically backup your data remotely.  That way you don’t have to worry about something happening to your hard drive, or to your house for that matter, as you can remotely access your backed up data from anywhere.

A basic plan is $59/year, so effectively $39 for the first year with the $20 gift card you’ll receive.  You can start with a free 2 week trial with no credit card required, though you’ll only get the gift card once the paid subscription starts.

Chase Offers Ending Soon

Update: There may be just 2 days left to grab some Ink cards with the lowered spend requirements.  Nothing confirmed at this point, but that’s the word on the street.

Related: My Current Credit Card Lineup
————————————————–
Great card offers don’t stay around forever.  These offers are around for a limited time only.

-Chase British Airways. 50,000 bonus Avios for spending $1,000 in 3 months, an additional 25,000 bonus Avios for spending $10,000 in 12 months, and another 25,000 Avios for spending $20,000 in 12 months for up to 100,000 bonus Avios.
Earn 2.5 Avios for every $1 spent on British Airways purchases and 1.25 Avios for every $1 spent on all other purchases. No foreign exchange fees. 10% off paid BA tickets. Every calendar year that you make $30,000 in purchases, you will earn a free companion ticket when you redeem Avios for a flight on British Airways. (If you can swing $30,000 in spending in 2013 on a new card you’d have at least 137,500 Avios and the companion cert) $95 annual fee.

You can read more about Avios in this post (and don’t miss the related links there either).  Along with United and American it’s one of my favorite currencies due to 4,500 mile one-way award tickets, no expedite/close-in fees, an awesome infant lap child policy that saved us $1,000 when we flew to Argentina in first class earlier this year, and now surcharge free awards to Israel for 30K each way.
——————————————————————-
The Ink business cards used to require $10,000 in spending but were lowered to $5,000.

Getting 2 cards that requires a total $10,000 in 3 months isn’t all that daunting.

-You can load $5,000 of Vanilla Reloads (that can be bought on a credit card at stores like CVS) on Bluebird per month and from there you can pay off your credit card bill.  You can also load Vanilla Reloads onto Vanilla Debit cards and you can take out a cash advance (with no maximum limits!) from your Vanilla Debit card for free. Plus of course there’s Amazon Payments which lets you send and receive $1,000 per account per calendar month for free from your credit card.

-Or just stock up gift cards to places like gas stations, airlines, clothing stores, Amazon.com, and much much more from an office supply stores to meet a spend threshold while earning 5 points per dollar.

-You can combine strategies by buying a $500 gift card from Office Depot for $4.95 and cash it out via Amazon Payments (see this post for the trick to do that).  Buy $10,000 of those on 2 new Ink cards and you’re looking at 150,000 points for a total cost of under $100 for some $2,800 worth of miles.

-Or you can buy prepaid gift cards and just use them for your everyday spending, thereby earning 5 points per dollar (less a small fee that amounts to the value of perhaps 0.5 points per dollar) everywhere!

-Updated Chase Ink Limited Time Offers
-A Rundown Of The Chase Ultimate Rewards Program And Ultimate Rewards Cards

-Chase Ink Bold. 50,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points for spending $5,000 in 3 months. Points transferable to BA (OneWorld), United (Star Alliance), Korean (Skyteam), Southwest, Hyatt, and more or for 1.25 cents each towards airfare. 5 points per dollar on up to $50K per year on wireless, landline, cable services, and at office supply stores.  2 points per dollar on gas and hotels. 1 point per dollar elsewhere. 2 free lounge visits per year for primary and for all free additional users. No foreign exchange fees. No fee first year then $95.

-Chase Ink Plus. 50,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points for spending $5,000 in 3 months. Points transferable to BA (OneWorld), United (Star Alliance), Korean (Skyteam), Southwest, Hyatt, and more or for 1.25 cents each towards airfare. 5 points per dollar on up to $50K per year on wireless, landline, cable services, and at office supply stores.  2 points per dollar on gas and hotels. 1 point per dollar elsewhere. 2 free lounge visits per year for primary and for all free additional users. No foreign exchange fees. No fee first year then $95.

The difference between the cards is that the Bold card is a charge card that must be paid back in full every month while the Plus card is a credit card that offers 0% APR on purchases and transfers for 6 months and best of all carrying a balance on a business card won’t hurt your credit score.  That difference can help you get approved for both cards if you need to call Chase’s awesome Reconsideration department.  Reconsideration can also move part or all of the credit line from personal or business cards to approve a business card.

You can call reconsideration to get your cards approved as soon as you are done applying.

There are also Ink cards with no annual fees like Chase Ink Classic and Chase Ink Cash. These cards give 20K bonus points for spending $3,000, down from the previous threshold of $5,000. These cards also give the incredible 5 points per dollar, though it’s capped at $25,000 per year instead of $50,000.

Getting a business card is quite simple.  You don’t need to be a traditional “business owner.”

For example if Joe Smith sells items on Ebay or on Amazon, or has any other side business/hobby and wants a credit card to better keep track of business expenditures he can just open a business credit card for “Joe Smith Sole Proprietorship” as the business name.  You don’t need to file any messy government paperwork to be allowed to do that.
Just be sure to select “Sole Proprietorship” as the business type and just use your social security number in the Tax Identification Number field as well as in the social security number field.

I’ve had business cards since I turned 18 as a Sole Proprietor and never had a problem getting approved with reconsideration if needed.
You can reach Chase business reconsideration at 800-453-9719.

-If you need more inspiration for a Chase 3BM you can check out this post on how I got 105,000 miles and $100 cashback on a Chase United consumer and business card (click on “are you a business owner” in the top-right). The fee waiver for the first year, the free checked bag, expanded United saver and standard award availability, priority boarding, elite upgrades on awards, free club passes, and primary CDW rental car coverage that almost no other card offers are just gravy on top of that killer signup bonus.
-Other favorites of mine include Chase Sapphire Preferred for the 40K signup bonus with the fee waived for the first year and 2.14 points per dollar on all travel and dining with no forex fees, Chase Freedom for the Exclusives program and the 5 point per dollar program on a card with no annual fee, and Chase Hyatt for 2 free nights worldwide (which includes a portfolio of $1,000/night dream hotels) along with other useful benefits and an annual free night.  I’ve churned all of these myself and have them all in my current 13 card Chase portfolio 😀

Transfer Membership Rewards Into 2.7 Hilton Points.

Update: The Virgin bonus ends on 12/29!

Originally posted on 11/27:

Related: Get A 30% Bonus When You Transfer American Express Membership Rewards Points Into British Airways Avios
———————————————————————
Currently through 12/29 you can transfer Membership Rewards points into Virgin Atlantic miles with a 35% bonus, so 1,000 AMEX MR=1,350 Virgin Atlantic.

Virgin Atlantic miles are subject to insane fuel surcharges and therefore aren’t really worth much to most people, but they can be converted into Hilton points at a 1:2 ratio.
The minimum transfer is 10,000 and transfers higher than that must be done in increments of 5,000.

Bear in mind that between 12/03 and 01/14 you’ll be able to transfer Membership Reward points into British Airways at a 30% bonus. 1.3 BA Avios will likely be more valuable than 2.7 Hilton points for most people.  Of course for others 1 Air Canada Aeroplan miles or 1 Singapore mile or 1 Air France Flying Blue mile or 1 Delta mile may be more valuable than 1.3 BA Avios.  Which is of course the beauty of a transferable currency with multiple transfer options.

Hilton points aren’t worth much, they’re nothing like other high-value hotel points like Starwood Starpoints or Hyatt points. But they’re worth something, perhaps about a quarter of a Starpoint or a third of a Hyatt point.

There are currently 2 Hilton properties in Israel, the Hilton Eilat Queen of Sheba hotel in Eilat and the Hilton Tel Aviv.
The Eilat Hilton costs 40,000 points per night and the Tel Aviv Hilton costs 50,000 points per night. If you have a Hilton card which gives automatic Silver Elite status or automatic Gold elite status (which can in turn be matched to the awesome Hyatt Diamond status mind you) then you also get 15% off 4 night awards stays, 20% off 5 night award stays, and 25% off 6+ night award stays.  Thus a 6 night stay at a top-tier category 7 Hilton would cost just 37,500 points per night with the 25% off instead of 50,000 points per night.

The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem is slated to open in August of 2013 and is slated to be one of the finest hotel in the entire country. Waldorf hotels are priced above all 7 Hilton categories and cost between 50K-70K per night in low season and between 60K-80K per night in high season. And they do receive the same 15%-25% point discount if you are elite. A Waldorf Astoria Tel Aviv is also in the works.

At any rate, say that you value Membership Rewards (MR) points at 1.6 cents each.
-If you transfer 15K MR you will receive 20,250 Virgin, which you can transfer into 40K HH. That’s like getting Hilton points at 0.6 cents each.
-If you transfer 26K MR you will receive 35,100 Virgin, which you can transfer into 70K HH. That’s like getting Hilton points at 0.5943 cents each.
-If you transfer 52K MR you will receive 70,200 Virgin, which you can transfer into 140K HH. That’s like getting Hilton points at 0.5943 cents each.
-If you transfer 63K MR you will receive 85,050 Virgin, which you can transfer into 170K HH. That’s like getting Hilton points at 0.5929 cents each.
-If you transfer 100K MR you will receive 135,000 Virgin, which you can transfer into 270K HH. That’s like getting Hilton points at 0.5926 cents each.

If you value MR points at more or less than 1.6 cents each you’ll have to rerun the numbers to see what you would be “paying” for the Hilton points.

——————————————————————————————

Need some Membership Rewards points? You can always call American Express to borrow some.

-The American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card comes with 25,000 points for spending $2,000 and the first year is free.  That will net you some 70,000 Hilton points.

The Platinum Card® from American Express earns 25K points as well and now is a great time to signup as you can get $200 of airline fee credits (or airline gift cards in $100 increments) in December of 2012 and another $200 in January of 2013.

-Don’t forget to register your Platinum Card® from American Express using this link for $200 in airline fee credits.
