Option to buy Stacksocial Store Credit for 20% off

When you put some things in your shopping cart at Stacksocial, you may be offered an option to purchase a $100 store credit for $80. That’s a 20% off discount. If you are a frequent Stacksocial shopper or if you are planning future big purchases, this is like getting a 20% off discount on everything you buy using the store credit.

On the other hand, if you are not a frequent shopper or do not make big purchases there, maybe you don’t need it.

Redemption Deal: 2200 SwagBucks for $25 Amazon Gift Card

If you are participating in the SwagBucks rewards program, and you haven’t redeemed a gift card this month yet, there is a promotion running that let’s you redeem 2200 SwagBucks for a $25 Amazon gift card. That’s better than the typical 1:1 ratio!

It’s not just Amazon, other gift cards are also eligible, but not PayPal. Because PayPal is essentially cold hard cash 🙂

Chase Q1 2018 5% Cashback Rewards are Epic!

Chase is taking their 5% cashback bonus categories for the first quarter of 2018 to the next level! Not only you have specific 5% earning product categories (gas stations, internet, cable, and phone services) BUT you will also earn 5% on purchases made with the three major mobile wallets, along with Chase’s own ChasePAY. That’s right, all Android PAY, Apple PAY, and Samsung PAY purchases get you 5%!

The limit is the same as always, up to $1500 for the quarter will earn 5%. Everything after that will earn at the standard 1% cashback. The limit is per card, so if you have multiple Chase cards, make sure you activate the offers on all of them, and plan your purchase so you can max out each one of them!

It’s certainly not hard to get $1500 just with gas and internet and phone and cable for a household, the way prices are going up on all of them! But if you have additional cards, or you are still under $1500, then the four mobile wallets will certainly get you to $1500+!

Since nowadays most major chain stores accept one of those mobile payment methods, just about everything, from groceries to drugstore purchases can get you that 5%! And Chase’s 5% can be converted straight up (1 point = 1 cent) to cash or statement credit. It’s not like the AMEX Membership Points that you get less than that.

PS: further strategizing, if you have a Discover credit card, their Q1 2018 5% cashback rewards include gas stations, so you could off-load your gas purchases to Discover, and use your Chase for everything else.

Get $10 off first two Uber rides with Citibank (new Uber customers)

The credit card company bromance with Uber continues with another offer, this one from Citibank.

Terms and conditions apply as usual.

20% select Smart Home Services

If you want to install various smart home services to your home and don’t know how to do it, or don’t have the time to do so, Amazon has a new limited time offer, you get an automatic 20% off discount in the shopping cart (no coupon code needed) when you purchase select Smart Home services. The list of available options and more details are shown on their website.

I haven’t used this service, so I cannot tell you how it works or what to expect. But I know how to find discounts 🙂

Spend 1000+ Plenti Points at Exxon-Mobil, Get 200 bonus points [must activate]

If you are participating in the Plenti rewards program, check your email or their website or their app! A new promotion is rolling out that you must first activate before you can use. With this promotion, you get 200 bonus Plenti points if you redeem at least 1000 Plenti points at an Exxon-Mobil gas station. This is very easy to go, all you have to do is fill up at least $10 in gas, and you get a $2 equivalent as a bonus! You will also earn the regular Plenti gas bonus.

Promotion ends November 30 in 2017. If you are very close to this, you may want to drive around the block a couple of times. It is a good idea every time you refill your gas to reset your mileage counter and calculate your mileage. It’s a good way to monitor the health of your car. A sudden or unexplainable drop in mileage can be an early warning of bigger troubles ahead!

Bing Rewards: 5250 points for a $5 Dell e-gift card

If you are participating in the Bing Rewards program, they currently have a redemption discount limited-time promotion.

The rest of the options are not currently discounted.

You earn Bing Rewards by using their search engine and completing various tasks (eg quizzes), while logged on to your Microsoft account. You can do this on mobile and on desktop. They even have an Android Bing app you can use for this while trying to fall asleep 🙂

Free Insulated Travel Bag with 1-Year AARP membership for $16 total

AARP is on a recruiting drive. Before you recycle all the promotional material in this week’s circular ads in your mailbox, IF you are interested in signing up or renewing an AARP, membership, look for an envelope-style offer from them. Inside that you will find the offer: you pay $16 for one year and as a gift you receive a FREE blue plaid insulated travel bag.

The promotion is good for both new members and renewals. It is stated clearly in the pink form! This promotion runs until January 31st in 2018.

There is no mention of a brand name for the free travel bag.

T-Mobile Tuesday for 10/2/17 has four solid offers including MLB Shop and Free Prints

T-Mobile Tuesdays are having good back to back weeks. The previous week was headlined by a clear stadium bag. The October 2nd (2017) have four solid offers:

  • ten FREE 4×6″ photo prints at CVS (store pickup only)
  • another $2 to spend at Dunkin Donuts
  • $20 to spend at the MLB Shop
  • option to buy “My Little Pony” tickets for $2

So nothing “tangible” like a stadium bag, but a solid round of options!

T-Mobile Tuesdays for 9/26/17 get you a FREE Stadium Bag, $2 at Dunkin, and more

T-Mobile Tuesdays are back with a good lot for September 26 in 2017! You get a clear T-Mobile branded stadium bag (you pick it up at the T-Mobile brick and mortar stores ~ if you are nice to their employees and they have too many of them, you may be able to score more of them), and a $2 Dunkin Donuts gift card (if you have Dunkin stores near you).

The other two offers are not as good, unless you need to buy a Ultimate Ears bluetooth speaker from the T-Mobile B&M stores (probably at full price): you get a 25% off discount. And last but not least, is a 1-month subscription to “StudyBlue PRO”, which I’m assuming is some kind of a service for college students.

T-Mobile Tuesday freebies for 9/5/17 a mixed bag

It’s a mixed bag as far as the September 5 (2017) T-Mobile Tuesdays are concerned. You get two media freebies and two coupons. The best freebie is a brand new arrival at Tuesdays, a free 4-week online course at Shaw Academy. The other freebie is a 1-day free rental at Redbox kiosks. That’s good!

The bad are a sad $25 in Restaurant.com nonsense, along with the usual Shell discount, which is only of use if you already use Shell. And it’s a coupon, not a freebie 🙂

T-Mobile August 29 Tuesday FREEBIES are good!

T-Mobile customers, don’t forget to remember to check your Tuesday freebies on August 29 (2017), you have three pretty good freebies, along with a coupon! They are:

  • $5.50 Vudu store credit (you can use on rentals or purchases, multiple transactions until the amount is depleted or it expires)
  • 1-Year Subscription to either Teen Vogue or Glamour (digital, not print)
  • ten free photo prints at Walgreens
  • 25% off coupon at Hotel Storm

If you have multiple lines, you can get multiples of each promotion, however, some companies (eg Vudu) place weekly limits on how many freebies you can redeem per individual account. So you can only have one $5.50 credit per Vudu account per week, even if you have four T-Mobile lines.

Nice freebies for the August 22 T-Mobile Tuesdays

Rejoice T-Mobile users! The August 22, 2017 is a pretty good mix of actual freebies! Four out of the five items are actually good, a pretty good percentage!

The freebies are:

  • a FREE Basic Oil Change at your Meineke (cars and light trucks only)
  • FREE 1-Month of Drama Fever streaming service
  • $10 off at Lids, online or in-store
  • 30% off a Local Groupon (see terms for restrictions)
  • 25% off at HotelStorm

The other carriers have been rebooting their rewards programs to bridge the gap between them and Tuesdays, but they are not making any dent. Especially sad is AT&T’s attempt at a reward program 🙂

T-Mobile Tuesday for 8/15/17 include $100 Postmates Delivery Fee Credit and more

The freebies for the August 15 (2017) of the T-Mobile Tuesdays have been revealed and there are two brand new freebies coming! You will get a $100 delivery fee service credit at Postmates, and a FREE Sonic CD Steam game.

If you are not familiar with Postmates, this $100 credit only covers their service fee. Not the purchase price of products of services. So it’s not $100 to spend at Postmates, but $100 worth in covering the Delivery Fee part of the Postmates bill.

The third item is a coupon really, you can watch the new movie Hitman for $4 per ticket. This is a recurring offer that features different new movie theatrical releases.

Good freebies on August 1st for T-Mobile Tuesdays

If you are a T-Mobile customer, make sure you remember to scoop up the freebies on Tuesday August 1st in 2017! You get two digital subscriptions, and one free B&M food, along with two coupons!

The three real freebies are:

  • Free Small Slurpee at a local 711 store
  • Free 3-month subscription to IndieFLEX (indie movies and documentaries; ad free; this is pretty good for FREE!)
  • Free subscription for soccer fans to the Bayern TV Plus (German football team)

And then we have two coupons, 50% off a local Groupon but the discount is capped to $10 (obviously, but still good). And the return of the Shell gas coupon.
