This sale is good for stays through July 31, 2015, but you must book by July 17, 2015, at 11:59 pm Central Time.Note: The top of the sale landing page says the end date for the sale is July 15, 2015, but the terms & conditions have the correct date.
You can find a full list of hotels included in this sale on the offer page, but here are a few I found interesting:
- Radisson Blu Mall of America, Bloomington, Minnesota

3. $200 Visa Gift Cards Back at Staples$200 Visa gift cards were out of stock at Staples earlier this month. But now via Miles to Memories, they’re back! You can buy these cards for ~$207 after the activation fee with your credit card.
This is an easy way to meet minimum spending requirements. That’s because you can use PIN-enabled gift cards to add funds to an AMEX prepaid card and pay bills like rent and utilities that don’t usually accept credit cards.
Plus, you’ll earn bonus points or cash back at office supply stores when you pay with cards like:
- AMEX SimplyCash – 5% cash back at US office supply stores
And sometimes, Staples has sales that can save you money on their gift cards. Currently, you can get a $15 Staples gift card when you buy $300 or more in MasterCard gift cards (in-store only) through July 18, 2015.
4. Free Night at Fairmont Hotels + $25 Credit
To get this deal, use promotional code “PMXX” and pay with your AMEX card!
