4. 30% Bonus on Purchased Amtrak Points
Via Deals We Like, you get a 30% bonus when you buy Amtrak points by February 16, 2015 (sign-in required).
You can buy up to 10,000 Amtrak points a year. So you can buy the maximum and get 13,000 Amtrak points (10,000 purchased Amtrak points + 3,000 Amtrak point bonus) for $275.
For folks who regularly travel on Amtrak this could be worth it. But you can NOT combine buying points with the 20% discount sale.

Your stay has to be completed by December 31, 2015.

Via Points With a Crew, you can get a $10 account credit with Serve when you create and fund $150 into a Reserve account by March 31, 2015.Note: This is a targeted offer so check your email.
You can transfer the money from your Reserve account back to your Serve available balance. But it doesn’t say how long you have to keep the money in your Reserve account first.
