1. Save $15 on Visa Gift Cards
Via Doctor of Credit, when you buy $300 in Visa gift cards at Office Max you’ll get an instant discount of $15 at checkout.
There’s a limit of 2 discounts per customer. So you can purchase $600 in Visa gift cards, and save $30!
This deal ends August 29, 2015.
Visa gift cards are a great way to meet the minimum spending requirements on credit cards. They come with a ~$7 activation fee per card, but with deals like this you can more than make up for the fee!
You’ll get the best deal by purchasing 3 $200 Visa gift cards. This would usually cost ~$621 ($600 in gift cards + ~$21 in activation fees). But with the discount you’ll only pay ~$591 (~$621 regular price for gift cards – $30 instant savings).
And don’t forget, you can earn 5% back at Office Max when you pay with AMEX SimplyCash, because it earns 5% cash back at US office supply stores.
This is a fantastic deal! However, you may want to call Office Max to find out if they still have gift cards in stock before you make the drive.

You may be able to sign-up for the Chase IHG Rewards card and earn 80,000 IHG points plus a $50 statement credit when you complete the minimum spending!
That’s 20,000 more points + $50 more than my affiliate link, but we always tell you about the best deals! I don’t know how long this offer will last!
To see if you qualify for this offer, log into your IHG Rewards aount. Then click the link for the 80,000 IHG points + $50 statement credit sign-up bonus.
You can also try making a test booking on the IHG site to see if the ad for the 80,000 IHG point offer appears for you.
