Chase Freedom has a $15 off $15+ for Visa Checkout. I extended my Hulu subscription via a Newegg gift card for a few months.

Recently used $15+ CR for $50+ at Chewy.com from Amex ($15 economic). Amex has been good to me for pet food!

Whole Foods offers on the horizon...$10 off $60+.

I'll use the Shop Small offers eventually.

There's a Petco $5 off $10+ offer.

I was happy with boxed.com; I'll have to use that one again.

I see they added Burberry.com
Spend $500, get $100 statement credit

Not an offer just about anyone can use, but it's a good deal. Online only, but good through March!

Before this round:
BCE: +$68
PRG: -$99
EDP: -$44

EDP $10 off $60. Whole Foods. $10 economic, since I got things on sale with a long shelf life.
EDP $15 off $60. Amazon. $8 economic, since Freedom/Discover are great for Amazon, too.

PRG $10 off $10+. Shop Small. $8 economic. The first place I went to (on the Shop Small map) was a restaurant that didn't even take Amex. I had used CSP there before, and paid with Hyatt this time. I was able to use PRG at a Shop Small-listed grocery store which did take Amex (but reasonably required a $20 minimum for any CC).

So, now:
BCE: +$68
PRG: -$91
EDP: -$26

Whoops, I let the Shop Small offer on BCE expire (or it will expire tonight).

I used Amazon $15 off $60 on BCE and PRG. $4 economic for each, since Freedom is a great alternative.

BCE: +$72
PRG: -$87
EDP: -$26
