Staples Gift Card Deal, Amazon Payments, Serve Cash Advance Fees & A United Lounge Pass Giveaway
Good morning! While this particular Sunday happens to fall in the middle of the month, there are quite a few newsworthy things going on. Lets take a look.
Staples Profit Making Gift Card Deal
I was the first in the points/miles to break this weekend’s Staples gift card deal. If you haven’t heard Staples is offering a $20 rebate on the purchase of $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards. There are several ways to go about it, each of which net you a nice profit. You can find the details and my suggestions for maximizing the deal here.
Goodbye Amazon Payments
Today is the last day to send $1,000 with Amazon Payments. As of tomorrow the person to person payment service that we have all grown to love will be shut down. If you haven’t been in on the fun, it may not be too late. Here are details on how to use the service.
Serve Online Credit Card Loads & Cash Advances
It appears that American Express has changed the merchant category they use when reporting online Serve credit card loads. Several people have reported being charged cash advance fees for Serve loads this month. You can find the latest info and what banks are known to be charging the fee along with my advice on how to safely avoid extra charges here.
United Club Pass Giveaway
This is the final reminder that I am giving away a United Club pass. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. You can also earn a bonus entry by following @milestomemories on Twitter! The contest ends tonight at 12:00am PDT.
As you can see, it may be a Sunday in the middle of the month, but there is a lot going on. If you use Serve make sure to check out the latest information about the cash advance issue and don’t forget to head out to Staples as the $200 gift cards are usually gone pretty quickly! Enjoy your day!
