Reselling Deals Still Available with Increased eBay Bucks

One of quite a few posts from Oren today about reselling deals available on eBay with the 5X eBay Bucks promotion. Even if you don’t plan on reselling it is always a good idea to take a look at the thought process behind finding deals like this.

Safeway: Free $50 Visa Prepaid with $250 Gift Card Purchase, 9/16-9/29

This would be a killer deal if I could verify which stores are participating. I checked Safeways in several areas along with Vons and Albertson’s and couldn’t find it in any ad. It would have been a Quick Deal, but I just think it is highly regional. Still, it is probably worth checking your local ad to see if your Safeway is participating.

Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos Returns to San Jose Del Cabo

This property has been closed for a long time following last year’s hurricane. I know a lot of people are waiting to book and it appears they opened to guests for the first time today. As a reminder this property costs 20,000 points per night for the first two people in a room!

Amtrak Guest Rewards credit card review

I’m not going to lie. I really didn’t think that the BofA Amtrak cards would be worth even a single look. I was wrong. As Frequent Miler points out, the bonuses are actually quite decent dollar value wise and there is even a case to be made towards spending your way towards elite status.

Great Deals

Orbitz $50 Off $100

Orbitz is offering $50 off $100+ hotel bookings when you use MasterPass and input the promo code MASTERPASS. Most brand named hotels are excluded, however I have found in the past most other properties are eligible.

If you are new to Orbitz don’t forget that you can get $25 free for joining their awards program through someone’s referral link. Here is my link, however any current member has one. You get $25 and they get $25 credit for referring you. You can find the terms of the Masterpass promotion here.

One Year Xbox Live Gold $30

Full price for this is $60, but I often see deals around $40. In the past I would have considered $35 a great deal, so I think $30 is a steal. I know this isn’t for everyone, but my son loves his Xbox Live, so it is something that we purchase every year. I haven’t heard of this merchant before, but people in this Slickdeals thread seem to have had good experiences with getting the code right away.

Have a great evening!

  1. I just received an email from United offering 4 miles per dollar at ebay. It does say it cannot be combined with other offer. So i wonder if I still get 5x ebay bucks. But i value United miles at 2 cents each. So I already get 8% back.
