Bottom Line

ShopRunner deals are a great way to save money on things you’re planning to buy anyway.

And most AMEX personal and business cards, like the AMEX Platinum Card and AMEX Gold Delta SkyMiles card, come with ShopRunner membership, which normally costs ~$9 per month or $79 per year. 

It’s a good idea to check if your AMEX card is eligible.  If it is, here’s how to sign-up!

And if you have a card that earns bonus points in a certain category, be sure to pay with it!  Because you do NOT have to pay with an AMEX card.

In addition to member discounts, start your online shopping through a shopping portal to earn even more miles and points!

These are great deals for back-to-school shopping, and I love stacking discounts to save even more!
