Freedom - Rewardzone - Miles triple dip !

Postby Nitrus » Wed Oct 17, 2012 12:00 am

With Mileage plus shopping I'm ordering a $2000 TV using my freedom card @ Bestbuy.

Mileage Plus 2000 miles = $20.00
5% cash back from Chase = $100.00
Bestbuy rewardzone Coupons = $40.00

Please help me beat 8%!

Unless there's a manufacturer's rebate for the TV you're buying, I think you have it covered.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).

*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.
