Double Cash Back Stores
This promotion includes many popular merchants, but two of them stand out as Mark notes at Miles to Memories. Office Depot/Max and Bed Bath & Beyond both have doubled cashback rates in store. Office Depot/Max cashback rate has been increased from 3% to 6% and Bed Bath & Beyond from 2% to 4%. The reason that these two stores are singled out is that they both sell a wide variety of gift cards. You can see the full list of stores here.
If you have an Office Depot/Max location near you, the this could be a tremendous offer. You can earn 5X Ultimate Rewards with a Chase Ink Plus/Cash card and then this 6% cashback rate from Ebates on top of that. You can choose either Visa Gift Cards or third party gift cards like Amazon. Either path is profitable.
Saks 5th Avenue cashback rate has also been doubled from 4% to 8%. If you haven’t used your Amex Offers yet, this weekend would be a great time to do so.
A warning. Gift card purchases are excluded in the terms, but they have triggered the cashback in the past. Also do not go wild on this deal. You could get shutdown from Ebates.
This is a great offer, so make sure you add your cards to your Ebates account and link the offer. If you have a Office Depot/Max location near you, then that’s the obvious choice. Otherwise check out Bed Bath & Beyond. Make one purchase first and wait for confirmation email to make sure it is triggering the cashback.
If you do not have an Ebates account you can also get a $10 Welcome Bonus when you make a minimum qualifying purchases totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25) within ninety (90) days of becoming a Member. Sign Up Here (my referral).
