2.   $100 Gift Card for $90

Ebay has $100 gift cards at a $10 discount.  There’s a limit of 2 per person.  So you could get $200 towards a hotel stay for $180.

Save $20 on a $200 Stay at! Plus, You Can Stack This With Other Deals for Even More Savings!

You can earn points and cash back by paying with cards like:

For example, if you buy 2 $100 gift cards with your Citi AT&T Access More card, you’ll earn 540 Citi ThankYou points (3 Citi ThankYou points X $180 spent).  Citi ThankYou points are worth at least 1.25 cents per point in paid travel booked through the Citi Travel Center, if you also have the Citi ThankYou Premier card.  So you could earn ~$7 towards paid travel.

Here’s how to stack this deal to save even more:

  • Check evreward and Cashback Monitor for the best shopping portal deals at eBay.  Currently, you’ll earn 4% cash back at eBay when you click through iConsumer to make your purchase.
  • Earn 2% back in eBay Bucks to use towards another purchase when you make your purchase through PayPal.
  • Pay for your gift cards with a miles, points, or cash back card like the ones listed above
  • When you’re ready to book your stay with your gift card,  check evreward and Cashback Monitor again for the best shopping portal deals at  For example, you can currently earn 7% cash back at by clicking through TopCashBack.  Be sure to read the fine print to see if your booking is eligible.

However, keep in mind that when you book through, you won’t get to take advantage of elite perks like free breakfast and room upgrades.  And you won’t earn credits towards elite status.

So do the math to see if this deal makes sense for you!
