Earn 25,000 bonus Starpoints after you use your new Card to make $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months (this is the normal offer) and an extra 10,000 bonus Starpoints after you make an additional $2,000 in purchases within the first 6 months (this is the bonus offer).

Earn 25,000 bonus Starpoints after you use your new Card to make $5,000 in purchases within the first 3 months (this is the normal offer) and an extra 10,000 bonus Starpoints after you make an additional $3,000 in purchases within the first 6 months (this is the bonus offer). Offer ends 4/5/2017.

Both offers are a combination of the standard offer + 10,000 bonus points for completing additional spend within the first six months. While these are still good offers, I wouldn’t call them amazing due to the amount of spend required to earn the full 35,000 Starpoints.

[Miles Briefs] 20% Off GameStop Gift Cards (Samsung Pay)

samsung pay

Samsung Pay is having a 20% off gift card promotion for Valentine’s Day. To purchase, open the app, click Gift CardsAdd, and Buy Gift Cards.

There are various limits in the terms and conditions, but the short version is that you can purchase two $50 gift cards per day up to five times during this promotion, for a total face value of $500.

This deal ends 2/14/17, so you have plenty of time to purchase your $500. ABC Gift Cards is currently paying 80% for GameStop and allows electronic submission.

This is a good way to rack up some spend for a signup bonus or to earn Samsung Rewards. Samsung Pay does throttle how quickly you can earn rewards, so you must wait 5 minutes between purchases if you’d like to earn Samsung Rewards on both orders.
