Signing up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. Here’s our full Advertising Policy.
1. Save on Applebee’s Gift Cards
Via Doctor of Credit, when you buy $50 in Applebee’s gift cards at Target, you’ll get a free $10 Target gift card through April 18, 2015, at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.
And you get 5% off purchases at Target with the Target Prepaid REDcard. Folks report this discount works doesn’t always work online, but it seems to work in-store.
2. Do You Have a Samsung Galaxy S6? You Can Get a Free Ride With Uber!
If you have a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge smartphone, you can get a free Uber ride (up to $25).
Here’s how it works:
- Go to Galaxy Gifts on your phone
- Download the Uber app and sign-up
- A $25 discount (in the US) is automatically added to the phone’s Uber account
Folks without a Samsung Galaxy phone, can still save money on Uber. When you create a new account using Emily’s link, you’ll get a free ride for up to $20!
3. Up to 2,500 Southwest Points for ShoppingMiles Remaining writes, you can earn up to 2,500 Southwest points when you shop through the Southwest shopping portal. This deal ends May 3, 2015, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time.
Returns, shipping costs, taxes, gift cards, and certain products do NOT count towards this bonus.
Southwest points are currently worth ~1.43 cents to ~1.7 cents per point (though this may be changing soon!). And keep in mind, if you use a coupon you typically won’t get points through shopping portals.
So do the math to see if your coupon is worth more than the points!
4. Save $75 When You Spend $350 or More on Hotels at Travelocity
Book your stay at a participating hotel at Travelocity and you can save $75 when you spend $350 or more. Use promotional code “TAXDAY75” to get the discount through April 16, 2015, at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.
Your stay must be completed by December 31, 2015, to get the discount.
Other important terms:
- Pay Later options and Top Secret hotels are NOT included
- This deal is NOT stackable with other discounts
- Taxes, surcharges, and other fees do NOT count towards this discount
This deal is for Travelocity rate hotels (you have to prepay for your stay). Be sure your base room price is more than $350 or the discount won’t apply.
5. Last Chance to Load AMEX Serve Online With Discover, MasterCard, or Visa
I wrote last month that AMEX Serve will only accept American Express cards for online re-loads, starting April 16, 2015.
So if you need to complete minimum spending on a Discover, Visa, or MasterCard, be sure to get in your last $200 charge before it’s too late!
Many folks are switching to the Target Prepaid REDcard card because you can load your account with ANY credit card at the register.
