Updated with more stores.

Originally posted on 11/03

Amazon: Purchases made between 11/01-12/31 can be returned until 01/31/15.

Apple: Purchases made between 11/01-12/25 can be returned until 01/08/15.

Sake OFF 5th: Purchases made after 10/15 can be returned until 01/15/15.

Staples: Purchases made between 11/23-12/24 can be returned until 01/17/15.

WalMart: Purchases made between 11/01-12/24 have a return window that starts counting from 12/26 and runs for 15, 30, or 90 days from then as per the usual policy for the item purchased.

Department stores like Kohl’s, Macy’s, and Nordstrom always offer returns at any time.

Of course credit cards also give extended returns all year round:
-The Chase Sapphire Preferred gives you 90 days to return items up to $500 each.
American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.
-American Express cards like the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express , the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card , and the Amex EveryDay Preferred Credit Card from American Express give 90 days to return items up to $300 each.  It might be $200 less than Sapphire but AMEX is really great about filing and honoring claims and they typically reimburse and allow you to keep items under $100 (sometimes even more) without having to return them.

IHG Pointbreaks Now Valid Through February

IHG Booking Linky

IHG PointBreaks Linky

-The current list is valid for stays through 02/28.
-Hotels can sell out of discounted rooms quickly and only a limited amount of rooms is available per night..

You can book up to 2 reservations per hotel. There’s no limit to how long each of the stays can be.

You can stay in any PointBreaks hotel for 5,000 IHG points. If you already have 5,000 IHG points in your account then you can buy increments of 10,000 points for $70 as described below.

If you don’t have points yet IHG sells 5,000 points for $67.50. If those points don’t post instantly you can call IHG to get a points loan based on your purchase confirmation number in order to quickly grab a room. Alternatively you can transfer 5,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to IHG, though transfers are not instant. It’s a terrible use of Ultimate Rewards points (as they’re were more than twice that to brokers or when transferred to other airlines, hotels, or Amtrak), but it allows you to start buying points for 0.7 cents each.

After you have 5,000 points in your account there is a “trick” to buy additional points for 0.7 cents each. You can book any cancellable 15,000 point hotel stay using cash and points for $70+5,000 points.

All you need to do is search for reward points stays in any metro area and you should find a hotel for 5,000 points+$70 like the one below. The room is normally 15,000 points but with IHG points and cash option you can buy 10,000 points for $70 when making a reservation. Just select the 5,000 points+$70 option to complete this purchase.

The $70 that you pay is nonrefundable so when you cancel the hotel you will actually get back 15,000 points in your account. Effectively you are buying 10,000 IHG points with this method for $70 or 0.7 cents per points.

ihg2

 

Be sure to click on the rules during the checkout process to make sure that the room is fully refundable (almost all are):

ihg4

In other words the cost per each 5,000 point PointBreaks stay is just $35 once you already have 5,000 initial points in your account.

Sample hotels for 5,000 points ($35) per night through 02/28:
-Candlewood Suites Tucson, AZ
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites Colorado Springs, CO
-Holiday Inn Express Washington DC/BW Parkway, MD
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites Detroit North, MI
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites S. Paul NE, MN
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites Carneys Point Turnpike Exit 1, NJ

-Building Credit And Credit Card FAQs: Your Questions Answered

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.
——————————————————————————–
Q: What is Small Business Saturday and who is paying for it?
A: For the past 5 years on the Saturday after Black Friday AMEX has sponsored SBS. Every year the promo varies but this year you can use your card at a small business in the USA, up to 3 times for $10 or more per swipe, and you will be refunded the money by AMEX.  You must spend at least $10 per transaction to receive a refund.  You can make 3 swipes for every card that you have.

SBS is paid for by American Express and other corporate sponsors. Merchants get paid the full amount for purchases.

Q: How can AMEX afford to do this?
A: Even if 500,000 cards participate and maximize the promo, it only costs $15 million.  That’s a tiny drop in the bucket for a company worth $100 billion and SBS creates tons of positive PR for the company.  Additionally there are other corporate sponsors of SBS.

It also gets more costumers asking merchants to accept AMEX so that they can use their cards on SBS.

Q: How long does the refund take?
A: Typically it posts within a few days. Sometimes it falls in between the cracks and the refund can take up to 90 days per the terms.

Q: Can I use my American Express consumer card ?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I use my American Express business card ?
A: If it says business, yes.

Q: Can I use my American Express corporate card ?
A: If it says corporate, no.

Q: Can I use my American Express prepaid card ?
A: If it says Serve or Bluebird, yes.
If it says anything else, no.

Q: Can I use my American Express card if it’s issued by Citibank, Macy’s, or another bank?
A: Yes. However if the refund doesn’t process automatically for any reason it will be very tough to have it honored. Whereas cards that are actually issued by AMEX will be easy to get a manual refund on.

Q: Can I use primary and secondary cards from the same account?
A: If your cards have different accounts numbers on them, yes.
If your cards have the same accounts numbers on them, no.

It’s fairly simple, all AMEX issued secondary cards have their own account numbers and do qualify.  Secondary Bluebird and Serve cards also have their own account numbers and do qualify.
Secondary AMEX cards issued by other banks like Citi and Macy’s have the same account numbers, and therefore don’t qualify.

Q: How many secondary cards can I have?
A: Officially up to 99, but trying to add 99 cards to your account is a red flag and can trigger a financial review where you must submit your tax returns or else your accounts will be shut down.  Some people have been shut down adding fake names as secondary users on their account.

Serve and Bluebird cards allow a max of 4 secondary users per account.

Q: How many secondary cards can I add safely?
A: Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. YMMV.

Q: Do I need to give a social to add an additional user?
A: To add it online, yes.
To add it over the phone you can say that you don’t have the information handy and most reps will allow you to open it.

Q: Can you add yourself as a secondary user on your own account?
A: Yes.

Q: What are the credit effects of secondary user cards?
A: The credit of the secondary user won’t affect the primary user.  However the secondary user can be affected positively or negatively by the account that they are added to, based on how the primary card is utilized.  Even if you don’t provide a social security number the credit bureaus may be able to link an account to one’s credit report.  You can always close a secondary card and have it removed from a report if desired.

Q: How old does an additional user have to be?
A: 15.

Q: Do you need to activate your additional user cards to use them?
A: Generally speaking, no.  However Serve and Bluebird cards do need to be activated.

Q: Do you need to add funds to your Serve and Bluebird cards to make purchases on SBS?
A: Prepaid cards need funds to make purchases.

Q: Where do I register for Small Business Saturday?
A: Here

Q: Is there any way to not have to manually fill out the form each time.
A: I used Autofill Forms for Firefox and it worked like a charm. You can create profiles of each of your users so that with one click it will fill in the name and email addresses.

Q: How do I know if I’m registered?
A: You should get an email confirmation.  You can also login to your AMEX account and look under “AMEX Offers for you” to check for confirmation in the “My Offers” tab.

Q: Will registration fill up?
A: Most years it doesn’t, but it did fill up completely on at least one occasion, so don’t procrastinate.

Q: Can I swipe 3 times in the same business?
A: Yes.
Depending on the processor used by the business, duplicate transaction of $10 may not be approved. If a duplicate $10 charge is rejected just try it again for $10.01 before resorting to calling the number on the back of the card.

Q: Can I make purchases online?
A: No.

Q: Do I need to swipe the card or can it be keyed in?
A: It can be keyed in or swiped.

Q: How do I know which businesses qualify?
A: The easiest way to know is if a business is on the small business map.

However just because a business isn’t on the map doesn’t mean it won’t work. As long as the business isn’t part of a major chain or processing mega sums of money it will still work. I’ve used it at stores not on the map in the past without issue, but realize there’s no guarantee.

Q: Will charities qualify?
A: If they’re on the map, sure.
If they’re not on the map, they will probably work anyway, but there’s no guarantee.

Q: Will I get an immediate email confirmation after swiping my card?
A: Technically you should. If you do then you’re good to go.
However often times AMEX gets backed up and doesn’t send out a confirmation, so don’t sweat it if you don’t get a confirmation email.

Q: Can I still add an additional user card for SBS.
A: Yes, turnaround time is about a week.

Q: Can I still participate if I don’t have an AMEX yet?
A: Sure.  You can apply for a card now and request for it to be sent to you overnight.  You can also apply for additional user cards at the time of the application.

Back in July a similar situation came up with a Canon camera and lots of people came out ahead by selling cameras back to Amazon. I did back then and it was really painless.

-Clearer sound. Deeper bass. Beats Solo HD headphones are the only Beats by Dr. Dre that come with not one, but two speakers inside each can. That means you get crystal clear highs and deep, rumbling lows in high definition.
-Every pair is now constructed of super-durable, flexible material, reinforced with a metal strip to make sure it never comes apart.
-Built-In mic for calls. Switch easily between songs and incoming calls. No need to take off your headphones or talk into the phone like a walkie-talkie.
-Remote control. Take calls, skip songs and adjust volume right from the cord of your Beats Solo HD headphones. No more searching for your phone or music player just to find the right song.

47.5%-70% Off At Banana Republic!

Update: Banana Republic is no longer sending out 25% off codes for subscribing to their email. If you have codes from before then you can still use this deal.

Is this the end of an era? 
———————————————————————-

Banana Republic Linky

Code 1:

-Either you can get 30% off with code (Exp: 10/21): BRBLACK30
This is stackable with the codes listed under “Code 2″ below.

-Or if you got an email from Banana Republic with “Black Friday” in the subject you will have codes good for 50% off 1 regularly priced item and 40% off your entire purchase.  This can’t be stacked with the 30% off code above, but it can be stacked with the codes below.

Code 2:

-Plus you can subscribe to Banana Republic emails and get a 25% off coupon so you can save 25% on top of the 30%-50% off which creates an effective 47.5%-62.5% discount. After you enter your email address and select your preferences you’ll be sent a one-time use coupon. The coupon should come within a few minutes, be sure to check your Promotion and Spam folders.

If you already subscribe you can use another email address or just add a +1, +2, +3 after your Gmail address. If your address is banana@gmail.com then banana+1@gmail.com, banana+2@gmail.com, banana+3@gmail.com, banana+4@gmail.com, etc will all work and be sent to your regular banana@gmail.com address.

Alternatively if you have ever received an email from Banana with the title “Waiting to wow you” or “We’re still waiting to wow you” then you have a one-time use coupon good for 40% off! Even if these codes have a stated expiration they actually don’t expire, so search your inbox for “Waiting to wow”

You can use the 40% off on top of the 30%-50% off codes for an effective 58%-70% savings. This won’t stack with the 25% off new email subscriber coupon.

The email confirmation will only show the 25% or 40% email code discount under promotions as the base price of the item itself will already be discounted by 30%-50%.

Chase United Mall Lounges Are Back

Update: The mall lounges are now open.
Please write about your experience if you check one out or if you trade toys for airport club passes!

Originally posted on 11/11.
—————————————–

For the holiday season Chase United cardholders can access lounges while shopping in malls in S. Francisco and Short Hills, NJ.

-NJ location: The Mall at Short Hills, located on the first floor next to Macy’s and adjacent to Guest Services. November 22 – December 24, 11:00 am until mall closing.
-SF location: The Westfield San Francisco Centre, Dome level near Bloomingdale’s. November 24 – December 24, 11:00 am until mall closing.

-The VIP Lounge is open to all Chase United Credit Card members and features complimentary gift-wrapping, coat and bag check, and snacks and beverages, including fresh baked goods, packaged snacks, soda, bottled water, and coffee, plus café-style seating and flat screen TVs.
-Football Sundays: Check out live game-day action every Sunday. All TVs in the VIP Lounge will be tuned to local and national pro football games on Sundays.
-Toys for Tots Tuesdays: Cardmembers may bring a new, unwrapped toy in its original packaging, on the following Tuesdays, December 2nd, December 9th and December 16th and you will receive one United Club pass. Bring two toys and receive two United Club passes. Minimum retail value of the toy must be $15.

-For entry, present your valid Chase United Credit Card and a valid ID.
-Each Cardmember may bring up to three guests.
-If you have recently applied for a United Card you may bring your application confirmation page to the lounge, and you will be granted access for the entire duration of the VIP Lounge.

It’s obviously not worth getting a United Explorer card for a mall lounge but there are some really nice perks of the card besides for the signup bonus (30K for spending $1,000 and 5K for adding an additional user):

-It is the only card that gives expanded award ticket availability. Cardholders have access to expanded saver coach award availability (XN class), last seat standard coach award availability (YN class), and last seat standard business/first class award availability (JN class). You can read about examples of expanded availability in this post. You can learn more about searching for those classes in expert mode in this post.

-As you have better access to saver coach awards you’ll also have better ability to do Plan B awards. Plan B allows you to redeem for saver business and first class awards when there’s only saver coach available. Based on DDF reports and my own experience people have better than 95% odds of being seated in business class on a Plan B redemption. Read more about Plan B in this post. No airline besides United offers a Plan B redemption.

-The United and Chase Sapphire Preferred cards are among the only cards that come with primary rental car CDW insurance. Almost every other card only has secondary coverage when you rent a car in your home country. This means that if you damage your rental vehicle you must file the claim with your own personal insurance policy first, and only if they won’t cover the damage will the credit card cover the damage. Even additional cardholders get primary coverage when they rent.

With primary rental car CDW insurance you will not have to file anything with your own insurance company. Chase will cover the entire bill for any damage to your rental car. Just be sure to decline the rental agency’s CDW coverage.  This primary coverage applies in every country in the world.

-The United Explorer card gives 2 free United Club passes every year for being a cardmember.

-The United Explorer card gives a 10K mileage bonus every year in which you spend $25K.  That means you’ll earn at least 1.4 miles per dollar spent everywhere if you spend $25K in a year. Spending $25K in a year also waives the requirement to spend $2.5K on United flights to get Silver status, $5K on United flights to get Gold status, and $7.5K on United flights to get Platinum status. You only need to fly the 25K, 50K, or 75K miles like in the good old days.

-Your miles will never expire as long as you are a United cardholder even if you don’t have any activity.

-A massive benefit for United elite members is that they can get free upgrades on coach award tickets on upgrade eligible routes if they have a United card.

Plus United is the only airline that assigns elite benefits to people that you redeem awards for.  That means people you book for have access to benefits like Economy Plus, lounge access, and more.

Other card benefits:
-No foreign exchange fees
-Double miles on United purchases.
-Priority boarding so that you’ll have space for your carry-ons.
-First checked bag is free.

Just add a $15 Amazon gift card via the link above along with any Economy size pack of Pampers diapers and the gift card will be free at checkout.

Don’t forget to click on the Pampers product page to clip a coupon for additional savings.

This promotion won’t work with subscribe and save, but the $15 gift card is more than 20% savings.

For example this 128 pack of Swaddlers diapers goes for $33.44 after the $1.50 coupon.
