Update: There’s been a ton of comments made on older deals referenced to in this post that nobody will ever read…
Feel free to ask/comment on any of these deals right here in this post or better yet, take the discussions to dansdeals.com/forums where the discussion won’t die when the deal falls off of the front page.
Ever wonder which deals I actually do myself in a given month? Here’s a roundup for October:
-Deposited $60,000 of US Mint dollar coins. It looks like this is the end of the deal as the no-limit Native American coins appear to no longer be available. (Total coins deposited to date? 250,000!!!)
-My wife and I accumulated 44 stays at Hyatt hotels during October. The total cost was $2,750 for 325,000 miles and hotel points, top-tier Diamond status with confirmed suite upgrades until 2011, and 22 free nights at any Hyatt hotel or resort in the world.
-My wife and I both opened up Chase checking accounts to get 50,000 Continental miles.
-I was able to order $120 in Borders GC’s for just $60 after $20 in instant savings and 40% off…unfortunately by the time I confirmed that the order went through and went to make a post about it Borders no longer allowing the 40% off coupon to work on the $60 GC package.
-Picked up a free after rebate LCD mount.
-Hopefully I’ll be getting a free ticket from Virgin America thanks to all 10 of my “Golden Tickets” being used…we’ll see if it really comes…
-Picked up to 2 tickets to visit the in-laws in Kansas City thanks to Continental matching Southwest’s $25-$100 zone sale.
–Got a $25 Piperlime GC for ordering a $10 pair of flip flops after a 20% off coupon.
-Opened a Key account to get $275 cash.
-Tried to get some Dippin Dots at BJ’s for just $1.79 after a coupon, but they were sold out of the parve Rainbow Ice flavor.
-My wife and I both got Windows 7 Ultimate Edition for free!
-Got a few codes for free Hardcover Photo Books from Shutterfly, already made a few incredible looking books!
-Got a bunch of free Banana clothing from their 15th anniversary bash including a couple of $100 winners (sometimes it pays to be signed up for spam in all of your email accounts!)
-Helped my Aunt and Uncle book 2 Continental reward tickets to go to Israel right when the rates went down from 90K to 75K with the switch to Star Alliance.
Now I just need to find a good place to burn some Hyatt nights! Any suggestions? Park Hyatt Sydney ($1,200/room value), Park Hyatt Buenos Aires ($600/room value), Grand Hyatt Kauai ($400/room value)? Any other suggestions for the best bang for the buck?
Do I have too much time on my hands? Which deals did you do this month? Anyone else go crazy at Hyatt?
