Then make 3 payments of $75 or more on your cell phone bill for a total of $30 back.  Most cell phone companies allow you to pre-pay your bill.

Eligible carriers include:

  • AT&T
  • Sprint
  • T-Mobile
  • US Cellular
  • Verizon

Have a lot of phone bills?  You may be able to get this offer on multiple AMEX cards.

3.   Easy $10 for Bank of America Cardholders

This deal has been extended through February 27, 2015.

Register your Bank of America debit or credit card for a new Visa Checkout account and get a $10 prepaid Visa card!

The $10 Visa Reward card will be mailed to the billing address on your Bank of America card within 60 days after you open your Visa Checkout account.

4.    Miami to Curacao for ~$120 Round-Trip!

The Flight Deal reports that you can get round-trip flights from Miami to Curacao for just ~$95 (~$120 after taxes)!

I was able to find that price from April 17, 2015 to April 20, 2015 on Cheap O Air.

Note: Cheap O Air has a 4-hour cancellation policy.

The Same Trip Will Cost You ~$400 on Other Airlines!

You may also be able to find this fare on Expedia.

The catch is that you will fly on Insel airlines, which doesn’t have to best record for being on-time.  You also won’t earn any useful airline miles for your flight.

Still, this is an excellent deal if you can find a flight that works for you.  However, some folks are reporting they aren’t able to get this ticketed.  But it might be worth a try!

Please let me know if you book a flight or were able to save money on your phone bill!

  1. Will the AMEX offer work for Verizon phone and Fios bill? (Not wireless)

  2. I recently saw and subscribed to a similar AMEX offer for two $10 statement credits if I used my Hilton Honors Surpass card and paid at least $75 on my T-mobile bill. Not as good as the targeted offer you mentioned here, but I’ll still take it!

    By the way, the Membership Offers/Deals AMEX has are worth checking out once a week. I’ve found a few savings opportunities for things I was going to buy anyway.

  3. Thanks for the heads-up! I was 0/5 for the AMEX offer, but my wife was 2/2! That’s an easy $60 off our T-Mobile bill!

  4. Theflightdeal reported that the Curacao deal is dead as of around 6pm.

  5. Hey Daurius,

    I’ve registered the Amex deal in two of my cards and two of my wife’s cards. That’s a total of 12 offers (each card can get 3 credits so 4 * 3 = 12).

    Now my question is, how to get credit 12 times when the last date for getting credit is July 05, 2015? TIA.

  6. @Cowboyguy: go to your account on your cell carrier’s online site and pay $75 at least 12 times across those 4 cards between now and 7/5/15. With Sprint I need to wait until my next auto-pay payment goes through, and then I will make 3 payments of $75 each with my Amex.
