HOLIDAY SHOPPING TIPS – WEEK#2

 
Here is a great cash back Black Friday deal if you are just looking for a little cash.
For joining (which is free), you can choose from the following gift cards:
$10 Barnes & Noble Gift Card
$10 Target Gift Card
$10 Home Depot Gift Card
$10 Magazine.com Gift Card
$5 Ebates Cash
You must spend $25 at some retailer to receive your gift card.  You can also refer all your friends all you get a $5 cash referral when they join for free.  This is just a great deal for everyone.  Try it out!  You’ll see how easy it is.  This $5 referral bonus is good until December 31, 2011.  So join now and send to all your friends.  It says you can earn up to $10,000 in referrals.  Seems crazy for the average person.  But I’m sure you can make a bit of cash.  I joined awhile back as a referral from someone and never really did anything with it but this $5 referral cash is a real incentive.  Let’s make a little travel “spending money” here folks.
 
AMERICAN AIRLINES
Earn up to 1,000 bonus miles.  Spend $500 and earn a 500 mile bonus.  Spend $1,000 and earn a 1,000 mile bonus.  Not a great deal but a little bone.


DELTA AIRLINES
Delta Airlines is offering 25 miles per dollar for 1800flowers.com, 1800baskets.com, Fannie May Fine Chocolates, Cheryl’s, The Popcorn Factory

 
UNITED AIRLINES
I am not sure if this is targeted but you should check on your account and see if it applies to you.
I just received an email saying:
Earn miles while shopping for gifts. With MileagePlus® ShoppingSM, you’ll earn 500 bonus award miles every time you complete 4 transactions ? up to a maximum of 25,000. Shop and earn miles this holiday season with exclusive offers from more than 600 retailers. It’s another easy way to earn bonus miles through December 15, 2011

Now all I need to do is find a great purchase for under five dollars.  A one dollar purchase would be sweet!  Not sure if it’s possible but I’ll post if I find a super deal.  If you find something, please do post it.  I’ll be doing research on this.

SOUTHWEST AIRLINES
Just to let you know that if you are looking for some more Southwest Airlines points, they finally got with the program and opened a shopping portal.  Here is the link.  No super big deals that I could see but just regular points offers.  Saw something about a Cyber Monday Bonus so that might be good. If you need to build up a bit more for a free ticket at least this is an option now with Southwest.
AMEX MEMBERSHIP REWARDS POINTS
If you need miles or points in any of these programs, you’ll benefits from using your AMEX that is tied to Membership Rewards points.  There will be some great deals coming up on Black Friday & Cyber Monday I expect.  I’m anxious to see myself as I’m planning to do a lot of Christmas shopping then like many of you probably are.
