1. British Airways Spending Bonus Changes!
You currently earn 2.5 British Airways Avios points per dollar spent with British Airways and 1.25 points per dollar spent everywhere else.
But notices have been sent out to some cardholders that starting April 30, 2015, you’ll earn 3X points at British Airways and 1 point per dollar spent on all other purchases.
While this notice has only been sent to some folks, this change is likely taking place for all cardholders.
2. TopCashBack Money Maker (Today Only!)Deals We Like writes, TopCashBack is offering $20 in cash back to new customers who buy a gift card at Raise through their portal. This deal is limited to 1 per person.
To get the rebate, spend at least $1 at Raise by March 19, 2015, (today!) at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.
However, the lowest gift card value I found available is ~$5. You can purchase $5 gift cards to AMC. But check to see what you can find for under $20!
Not new to TopCashBack? There are some other great deals open to everyone including:
- 8% back and 20% off clothing, home, and jewelry at Macy’s
- 7% back at Nordstrom
- 5.25% back on most purchases (excludes electronics, books, movies, and photo) at Walmart
- $100 back per new line activation at T-Mobile
3. Save 15% at La Quinta Hotels
This deal ends June 15, 2015.
This is discount is good at all La Quinta locations in the US, Canada, and Mexico, except in Manhattan where you’ll only save 10%.
Here’s my list of the ways you can save with Visa SavingsEdge.
4. New Charles Schwab AMEX Cards!
American Express will be releasing 2 new Charles Schwab co-branded cards sometime in early 2016.
These cards may be similar to the AMEX Fidelity card which offers:
- 2% cash back on all purchases
- NO annual fee
I love the Charles Schwab’s High Yield Investor Checking Account because you can use it overseas to withdraw money and pay NO ATM or currency conversion fees. So I’m excited to find out more about the new American Express cards!
