Hopefully this is OK to ask here.

Has anyone ever seen deals (no activation fees) on Variable Load MCGCs? The only ones I've ever seen are for the fixed dollar amounts.

    Did you go to Walmart to trade in your car seat? They ended it early yesterday! We procrastinated and missed out. :(
    I did! I went on Tuesday and traded it in. They gave me a regular gift card, so I'm going to wait until we fly again to actually pick the new seat. I'm sorry you didn't get a chance to turn yours in. I really don't like when companies publicize a promo, then pull it early.

    @PolyRob chase won't let me search my date yet, aug 20. It only goes to aug 17 currently. But cash price on United is $799 for most aug 20 flights so about 53k points. If it was as close as that other one you posted, it would be a no brainer, as @calypso726 said. I'm so nervous that either I'll miss the savers or they'll never release them. Patience is hard!
    I know what you mean. The struggle is real LOL

    We leave early tomorrow morning for WDW and had a scare this morning :scared: I was going down the stairs and slipped and landed on my backside, it hurt pretty bad and must have made a loud thud. My DH came to check on me and I was telling him it hurt, then apparently I tried to get up and slipped again and hit the side of my head on the wall. I don't really remember that part, the next thing I remember was laying on my back and my DH was yelling at me. I'm fine now, although I've got a sore tailbone, forearm, head, and mark on my face where I hit my glasses. But, I should be fine and super excited for our trip tomorrow! Supposed to be hot but mostly dry. Can't wait! :yay:
    Oh no...feel better....
    We have been here since Wednesday....... weather has been great...hot but not humid...celebrating DS’s birthday today..leaving Wednesday and will be home in time to take DD out for her birthday

    DH got Southwested (like Bonvoyed) last night. No warning, flight cancelled and put on a different flight. He did not get emailed about change or anything. He just noticed in his app he was flying to Atlanta instead of Chicago. Instead of arriving to his destination at 8:30 he didn't get in till 11:30. I guess it could have been worse, he said there were many people on standby for his flight. When he left the house he could have driven to the destination and arrived at 8:00. lol. Those 5-6 hour away places are tricky. Pain to drive to and pain to fly to. When he checked into his hotel at midnight his work visa was again declined. Second time this month. He has never had this issue before. I think they have had a lot of problems since they moved their contract to Citi. But I will take a $800 charge on my visa and get reimbursed any day! Wish he had his new CIP already.

    PSA: there are 8-10 $200-250 Disney gift cards for sale on Raise right now, and the 15% cash back offer from TopCashBack is still active.
    Dang it, just saw this. I looked so many times yesterday for walmart and disney. About as many times as i looked at customizing my magicbands and that of course was a fail as well.:badpc:

    I did this last week. I took our walmart cosco scenera to target and stacked the 20% coupon with target redcard 5%, store pickup 5%, and the sale price...to get DD3 a chicco myfit for $110 (usually $199).
    Then I ordered her travel booster from walmart...Disney Baby finale 2-in-1 booster in minnie print, marked down for the baby sale from $55 to $40.
    I'm super happy with this deal overall. 2 new boosters (main and travel) that both convert to using the car seatbelt when the time comes so I don't have to buy anymore in the future....all for $150 ($255 value) and the seat I traded in has been in use for 3 years and only cost $40 to begin with.

    I know there was discussion about travel carseats recently and someone didn't want the scenera because of the weight limit. Check out the disney baby booster...it would last longer but if your kiddo is 30lb it would be fine for now too! Of course DD3 likes the $40 minnie mouse seat better than the fancy chicco.

    FYI - Buy $300+ Mastercard Gift Cards at Office Depot/Office Max, get a $10 instant discount. Expires 9/28/19.

    OD/OM sells fixed denomination MCGCs in $100 (with a $5.95 activation fee) and $200 (with a $6.95 activation fee). To maximize this deal, it’s best to buy 2x $200 MCGCs, paying with a CIC/Ink+ for 5x UR at office supply stores.

    $206.95 x 2 = $413.90 - $10 = $403.90 (effective $3.90 fee) x 5x UR = 2019.5 UR

    You won’t earn as many points buying $200 and $100 MCGCs, and multiple $100 MCGCs will increase your fees.

    $105.95 + $206.95 = $312.90 - $10 = $302.90 (effective $2.90 fee) x 5x UR = 1,514.5 UR

    $105.95 x 3 = $317.85 - $10 = $307.85. (effective $7.85 fee) x 5x UR = 1,539.25 UR

    Pay with a credit card that earns a high bonus at office supply stores, like the Chase Ink Cash or Ink+ for 5x Ultimate Rewards Points, or a card on which you're working on the MSR. DO NOT purchase gift and prepaid cards at office supply stores with an Amex while working on that card's MSR.

    Highly recommended to hit your local stores ASAP, or don't be surprised if they're picked clean within a few days. Limit 1 deal per household, but YMMV.
    I'm finally going to try MS tonight during my kid's soccer practice. wish me luck.

    Not sure if anyone else is looking at the IHG premier card. I was looking for DH as I have the old, discontinued $49AF card and he has none. Would like to get another cert (realizing it is only up to 40K points but that works for us). Did a dummy booking since I read there was the same offer on IHG site but with $50 credit. I didn't see the $50 credit but on IHG it has offer for 125K SUB ending 10/9. I don't see anything on Chase site of an end date. Not sure if this is real or a way to push more people in getting the card.

    anyone know if we could app for this offer if we both already hold the old $49 card?

    Well Dh and I finished season 4 of Schitt’s Creek! It was so good. I can’t wait for the next season to get put on Netflix in a couple weeks

    Credit card related-I’m impatiently waiting for my CIP to arrive. I didn’t expedite it but we finished the MSR on my BBP and need a new one lol. We have flood insurance to pay for
    usually I'm not in sync at all with the general threads fave shows..... but I love this one!
