Joseph: Today’s useful miles & points news!
1. Amazon Prime Members Get New Discounts at Whole Foods
Link: Amazon Prime
Nearly 1 year ago, Amazon purchased Whole Foods. And now, Amazon Prime members will get exclusive discounts for shopping at the popular (and kinda expensive) grocery store. We don’t know exactly what the discounts will be, but Amazon says Prime members will get an additional 10% off sale items, and “deep discounts” on select bestselling items.
Florida stores are receiving these new discounts today. And all Whole Foods stores nationwide will get the discounts this summer. Just download the Whole Foods app, sign-in with your Amazon account, and scan the Amazon Prime code at checkout to get the special discounts!
Many of the us subscribe to Amazon Prime, because it comes with:
- Free 2-day shipping on items sold by Amazon
- Unlimited movies and TV shows from their collection
- Unlimited music streaming
- Unlimited storage space for your photos
- Early access to sales and deals
- 1 free Kindle e-book a month
And this Whole Foods discount just sweetens the pot!
2. No Fees for Certain Plastiq Payments With Masterpass
Plastiq is a service that lets you use certain credit cards to pay many bills that don’t normally accept a credit card as payment, like a mortgage. It’s a handy tool for folks who need help meeting minimum spending requirements. But because they normally charge a 2.5% fee, it’s NOT a good way to generate miles & points on a regular basis.
But through September 30, 2018, you can pay up to $500 in bills with your MasterCard with NO FEES. But you’ll have to make your payment through Masterpass. And you must have made at least $500 in payments prior to using this promotion.
There is no limit to how many transactions you can make with this promotion. So if you can think of any bills you’d like to pay ahead of time, you can earn your bonus points even faster!
Just remember, this is for MasterCard ONLY.
