1. 1,000 Free American Airlines MilesDoctor of Credit writes, you can earn a quick 1,000 American Airlines miles.
To earn the miles, watch 6 videos (you can skip to the end) and answer 6 questions (you don’t have to answer correctly).
This deal is good until June 12, 2015, at 12:00 pm Central Time.
Here’s how it works:
- Enter your dream destination
- Click on the marker in front of each door to “watch” the videos
- Answer a question after each video (you’ll still earn the miles for incorrect answers)
- Register to win 2 First Class tickets to anywhere American Airlines flies
- 1,000 American Airlines miles should post to your account in 6 to 8 weeks
This is only takes a few minutes and it’s a great way to keep your American Airlines miles from expiring for another 18 months!

You can save $20 at SamsClub.com with AMEX Offers. Tweet “#AMEXSamsClub” to @AMEXOffers. Then use your linked American Express card to make a purchase of $20 or more and you’ll receive a $20 statement credit.

You will only earn the statement credit for online purchases.
If there’s a store near you, select in-store pick-up to avoid shipping costs.
Don’t have a Sam’s Club membership? You can still buy items on SamsClub.com, but you’ll pay a 10% fee.
If you’re new to AMEX Offers, check out my post with more details on how to register for these deals. And if you have more than 1 AMEX card, you should be able to get this deal more than once!

You can get this discount through May 16, 2015. There’s a limit of 2 per customer.
Most Visa gift cards charge a ~$7 activation fee. So if you buy two $200 Visa gift cards, you’ll pay ~$14 in fees. But with this deal you’ll get a $20 discount and come out ahead ~$6.
This is an excellent way to meet the minimum spending on your credit cards!
