Plenti: Earn 8X Points on Apple Online store purchases

Discounts and coupons are rare at Apple, so this may be a great promotion if you are planning online Apple purchases and you are participating in the Plenti rewards program! There is a new offer available there, which you must manually activate in your Plenti account first, that gets you 8X points on purchases made at the Apple online store. That’s 8% of your purchase! That’s pretty, pretty, pretty good!

Once activate in your account, the offer ends on 08/10/2017 8:59pm MST. Detailed terms and conditions are available over there.

Subscribe to Hulu, Get $10 in Plenti points

If you are participating in the Plenti rewards program, and you are interested in starting a new HULU subscription (you haven’t been a Hulu member the last 12 months), you will earn 1000 Plenti points AFTER you pay for your first month of Hulu service. The Free Trial does not count since your rewards earning is triggered by YOU paying for your first paid month. Hulu is $8 per month for the ads tier and $12 per month without ads.

You must link your Plenti account with your Hulu account, so they can figure out that you satisfied the requirement and give you your 1000 Plenti points. 1000 points are the equivalent of $10 spent at RiteAid or Macy’s or Exxon-Mobil gas stations ~ certainly not hard to spend the points 🙂

This offer expires 8/11/17. They also run some other offers after you subscribe to Hulu, eg watch a specific number or type of TV shows and get bonus Plenti points.

Make $15+ qualifying Chili’s purchase, Get 20% in Plenti points

If you are participating in the Plenti rewards program, check your account or your Plenti emails! There is a new promotion for Chili’s restaurants that gets you 20% back in Plenti points on a qualifying purchase of $15+. It is important to understand what qualifies and what doesn’t. If you are not familiar, check the details in the promotion over there. For example, tips and alcoholic beverages are NOT eligible.

You must manually activate this offer. Plenti has two kinds of offers: some are Automatic, so you don’t have to manually activate it, you just buy whatever is eligible. Others, like this one, must be activated first. Activation sounds more complicated than it is, you just click the green button as outlined in the screenshot below.

Strategically this is a good idea if you own someone lunch or dinner. You take them there and pay for it, and secretly earn 20% back without anyone but you knowing 🙂

A new coupon has been unleashed for the Macy’s website, a Memorial day coupon, code SUNNYPLE gets you 20% off. The coupon expires 5/29/17. There are exclusions to the eligibility as usual.

The coupon originated from a Plenti rewards email. Macy’s is one of the major members of the Plenti rewards program, and they have a separate promotion that gets you 10% back in Plenti rewards points. This promotion is not by coupon code, but activate on Plenti, so it should be stackable with the coupon above.

Great Cordcutter Gift Card Deals at RiteAid with Plenti Rewards

Good until the close of business on Saturday April 15 in 2017, at Rite Aid brick and mortar stores, for those participating (or willing to join) the Plenti rewards program, there is a trio of loaded gift card deals for cordcutters!

  • Buy $50 Netflix Gift card, get 800 Plenti Points ($8 equivalent)
  • Buy $30 in Google PLAY or iTunes, get 500 Plenti Points ($5 equivalent)
  • limit two Neflix and limit two combination of iTunes and Google Play)

This is a very good deal, it’s an effective 16% discount on Netflix (you can load it up on your account in just a few seconds) and an effective 20% discount on Google Play (discounts are rare). It’s not a bad discount for iTunes, but sometimes you can find a 25% or 30% through store gift card promotions (Walgreens has a recurring buy $30+ in iTunes, get $10 Walgreens gift card, but it’s not running right now).

20% off back in Plenti points with $25 Netflix Gift Card

Cordcutters, unite and take over! For the shopping week of Sunday February 12 until the close of business on Saturday February 18 (2017), at Rite Aid brick and mortar stores, you get 20% back in Plenti points when you purchase a $25 prepaid Netflix gift card. That’s 500 points, which have $5 buying power in future purchases at Rite Aid and other participating Plenti merchants. The promotion is limit two for the shopping week (as usual).

Given that Netflix is rarely discounted, this is pretty, pretty, pretty good! Plenti is free to join, and you can always spend your points on Exxon-Mobil gas if you don’t need anything else from the other participating merchants.

Just remember that Plenti points don’t roll, so don’t use points to buy items that qualify for new Plenti points. Use them on everything else 🙂

Google Play Gift Cards Plenti promotion returns

Good news if you are a fan of Google Play and are participating in the Plenti rewards program! The gift card offer returns for the shopping week of January 29 until the end of day on Saturday February 4 in 2017. It is the usual terms, you purchase a $25 Google Play gift card at Rite Aid B&M stores, and receive 500 Plenti points, which are worth $5 towards future purchases (at Rite Aid or Exxon-Mobil or Macy’s or other participating retailers). The 500 points will show up in your Plenti account the next morning, so it’s quick and you don’t have to lift a finger to get your reward. Doing the math, this is a 20% virtual discount.

As before, the promotion is limit two per Plenti rewards member for this promotional period. Unlike iTunes gift cards that get discounted often, Google Play is not as often, so these are perhaps the best deals of them (as long as you are a Plenti member or you don’t object to joining in).

Plenti offer: 20X points at Macy’s (must activate first)

If you are a fan of shopping at Macy’s and you are participating in the Plenti rewards program, there’s a new promotion that should be available in your account to activate (this offer must be manually activated before you earn the bonus). With this offer, you earn 20X points, which is 20% back, since 1 Plenti point is 1 real-world penny!

As you can see in the screenshot above, this offer runs until 2/2/17, but fear not, Macy’s is one of the cornerstone partners in Plenti (and “friends” of AMEX), so they’ll keep rolling out offers as time goes by.

Get 750 Plenti points on $25+ Chilis purchase

American Express is leveraging some of the closer relationships with national retailers as part of the Plenti program they are running. One of the new promotions they have running is with the Chilis restaurant chain, maligned by foodies, but secretly loved by many 😉

You have to manually activate this offer in your Plenti account. After you do that, a purchase of $25 or more at Chilis gets you 750 Plenti points. That’s $7.50 to spend in the future through the Plenti rewards program (Rite Aid, Exxon-Mobil gas stations, Macy’s, etc).

If you haven’t done an offer like this before, it is important to read the terms and conditions. The $25+ has to be on food items and non-alcoholic beverages only. Everything else on your bill (alcohol, sales tax, other fees, tips, gift cards) do not count towards the $25 limit!

Limit one redemption during this promotional period but they have recurring offers, so if you are a Chili regular, pay attention to the “Partner Offers” over there and check the deadlines and terms of each one.

Here’s a screenshot of the promotion for reference:

Starting December 10: double Plenti Points on Weekend Gas Purchases

Especially if you do a lot of driving in weekends this December, starting on the 10th of the month, you can earn twice as many Plenti points on gas purchases at participating Exxon-Mobil stations. This offer is currently teased in “preview mode” on the Plenti website. It will go live on December 10 (2016), so make sure you check and sign up on that date if you are interested in it.

Twice the points is not a lot unless you drive a lot. It’s basically one penny per gallon, but on a road trip or if you visiting friends and relatives up and down the interstate on weekends, it adds up quickly 🙂

Nov 20-26: Buy $25 Google Play Gift Card, Get 500 Plenti points back

The Google Play gift cards are not discounted as often as iTunes, so it’s a sale-a-bration when they do! And they do indeed for the week of November 20-26 (in 2016) at Rite Aid brick and mortar stores. You buy a $25 Google Play plastic gift card, and receive 500 Plenti points, which have the $5 equivalent buying power in future purchases. The points will be ready to use in your account the morning after the purchase. Limit two per customer during this week. You get confirmation all is well at the cash register receipt. So this is a virtual 20% off discount ~ assuming you’ll have no issue spending the 500 Plenti points 🙂

Spend $50+ at Macy’s, Get 2000 Plenti points ($20 equivalent)

More Plenti action, this offer is running until 11/17/16 and has to be manually activated (the green button over there). You get 2000 Plenti points ($20 future buying power) when you make a purchase of $50 or more at the Macy’s website. Check your Plenti account for all the terms and conditions. Assuming you’ll spend your 2000 Plenti points wisely, this is effectively a 40% off discount on your Macy’s purchase. They are already running some specials on their own when you add beauty items to your cart, so if you are strategic about it, you can score big.

NOTE: some brands are not eligible for this promotion. This is because some brands will not let retailers include them in promotions like this. Be sure to check the terms and conditions, I’m not just saying it for the sake of saying it 🙂
