When You Spend $300+ on AMEX Gift Cards at Staples, You’ll Get a $20 Staples Rebate Card!

The offer is good from through September 5, 2015.

Use Your Staples Rebate Cards to Buy Items In-Store or Online at Staples

You can only use the $20 Staples rebate card at Staples (in-store or online).  You can’t use them to buy other gift cards, but $20 would get you a lot of free chocolate and candy (if you have a sweet tooth like me!).  Or you can sell them online.

Folks like to buy AMEX gift cards to meet minimum spending requirements to earn sign-up bonuses on credit cards.  Because they can earn bonus points faster, and keep the AMEX gift cards to spend any time.

You’ll also earn bonus points at office supply stores with AMEX SimplyCash, which earns 5% cash back at US office supply stores.

Be sure to read about how to use Staples rebates!

Link:   NextIssue American Airlines Promotion

Via View From the Wing, you can earn 2,000 American Airlines miles when you sign-up for a NextIssue subscription and pay for 1 month of service (~$15.)

Read Your Favorite Magazines for 2 Months and Get 2,000 American Airlines Miles for ~$15

The offer expires October 1, 2015.

You’ll only earn the bonus miles when you select a paid premium plan and keep it for at least a month (after the free 30-day trial period).

Be sure to cancel if you won’t want to continue the service.  If you have ~$15 remaining on a gift card, you could use it to make sure you’re not charged a 2nd time before you cancel.

This is a good way to earn 2,000 American Airlines miles.  You’ll prevent your miles from expiring, and get to read your favorite magazines for a couple of months!
