1. New Fidelity 2% Cash Back Card Coming in 2016
Folks on Reddit discovered the AMEX Fidelity 2% cash back card is no longer available to new applicants. And on January 4, 2016, they’ll release details of a brand new 2% cash back card.
I’m not sure what this means for folks who already have the AMEX Fidelity card. Through now, it’s been a great way to load AMEX Serve accounts online and earn cash back.
I’ll update when I have more details!
2. Get a $15 Starbucks Gift Card for $10 at Groupon
Via Mommy Points, Groupon has $15 Starbucks e-gift cards on sale for $10. But to take part in the deal, you must make your purchase by tomorrow, December 30, 2015.
This is a great deal for folks who like Starbucks coffee, or for a belated Christmas gift. Quantities are limited, so make your purchase soon!
Remember, you can start your shopping through a shopping portal to earn bonus miles or points!
According to Cashback Monitor, there are lots of portals offering miles, points, or cash back for purchases at Groupon.
You won’t earn a lot on $10, but it all adds up! Plus, you’ll reset the clock for when your miles or points expire with many airline and hotel programs, so I always recommend clicking through a shopping portal if you can!
3. More Changes Coming to Wyndham Rewards
Link: Wyndham Rewards Changes
It looks like they might transition to a new points system. And add new elite status levels. They also promise a “first-of-its-kind perk we know you’ll love.” Interesting!
I wrote about an offer to earn 45,000 Wyndham points with the Barclaycard Wyndham Rewards, which is good for 3 nights at any Wyndham Hotel. That offer is still available, so now might be a good time to apply if you’re interested!
Emily and I don’t earn a commission on this card, but we always share the best deals with our readers!
As always, I’ll let you know more details about the upcoming changes when I have them!
4. Save up to 50% on Purchased United Airlines Miles
Via Mommy Points, you can get up to a 50% discount on the purchase of United Airlines miles through tomorrow, December 30, 2015.
You can save:
- 15% when you buy 5,000 to 19,000 United Airlines miles
- 25% when you buy 20,000 to 49,000 United Airlines miles
- 35% when you buy 50,000 to 149,000 United Airlines miles
- 50% when you buy 150,000 United Airlines miles
Keep in mind you can only make a purchase in 1,000-mile increments.
This could be a good deal for folks who were planning to buy an expensive paid ticket anyway. You might get a better deal buying miles and redeeming them for an award ticket!
That said, do the math and make sure the award ticket you want is available!
Again, be sure to make your purchase by December 30, 2015 (tomorrow!), to get this deal if you’re interested.
Let me know which deal today is your favorite!
