RewardHop wrote:Why not buy some iTunes gift cards when they go on sale online for 20% off? iTunes credit never expires, I always keep a small balance for app purchases. I recall several times in the last 2 months where Best Buy, Paypal, eBay, Office Max/Depot had them on sale for 20% off. It beats any CC cash back.
I'll look around. eBay's auctioned discounted gift cards aren't too greatly discounted, and they aren't instant and there is a risk for fraud. Best Buy is charging face value right now, and Office Max doesn't have them online right now.
I don't use PayPal and didn't know they were a merchant. What would be the website for that? Paypal.com just seems to bring up information about using their payment network.
I'll check the Best Buy or and Office Depot websites another day, but I think I'll stick with the simplicity of the Chase UR portal. I'm working towards the CSP bonus right now, anyway.
Edit: I have found a 20% off iTunes gift card for sale (not an auction) on eBay, but the seller has zero history. That's the sort of possible scam I want to avoid when I'm only trying to save a few dollars.
