5% Bonus Categories for Summer 2017

5% Bonus Categories for Summer 2017

Everyone should always have one of the credit cards that earn 5% back on bonus categories that rotate quarterly. If you are a Chase Freedom, Discover It, Citi Dividend, or US Bank Cash+ review card holder you can now activate your quarterly rewards for July, August, and September bonus categories.

1. Chase Freedom – 5% Back at Restaurant and Movie Theaters
Restaurant might be the favorite bonus category for many people. Don’t forget to use this card when you eat out!

The Chase Freedom has a quarterly cap of $1500 in spend on 5x categories per account. If you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve, you can transfer Ultimate Rewards earned with the Freedom to the CSR and transfer to travel partners, or redeem at 1.5 cents/point towards travel effectively making this 7.5% back.

2. Discover IT – 5% Back at Restaurants or 10% Back for New Cardholders

Restaurants is my favorite 5% back category because I dine out a lot and you can use this for bars and nightclubs which can be expensive and add up fast. I do not mind that Chase Freedom has the same category during these months because I max out both cards with the $1,500 spend with “dining.” Remember that all new Discover IT cardholders will earn a double bonus on cash back earned in the first 12 months of card membership, including on cash back earned in bonus categories, making quarterly category spend worth 10% cash back in the first year.

Are Uber Flat Fares Too Good To Be True? #RidePass

Uber’s Flat Fare Ride Package (now called Ride Pass) is available in ten major cities now including Dallas, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C. You can get access to these really cheap rides by paying a one-time activation fee of $5 to $20 then riding flat-fare rides of only $5.99 to $20 for 40 flat-fare rides. The flat fares vary by city, but overall, they’re dirt cheap. UberPool rides start at just $1.99, and UberX rides start at $3.99.

An example would be in Dallas where they are charging $5 to activate the flat fare for 30 days then it’s only $5.99 a ride. Dallas seems to be one of the cheaper cities so that we have seen. We mean ridiculously cheap.

If you haven’t yet signed up for Uber then you can save even more towards your next ride. Register here to get a $20 credit for Uber towards a Free Ride. Use promotion code “UberVip4me

How Cheap Are Uber’s Flat Fares?

You must choose a city to activate your flat-fare deal so do not expect these fares on vacation in another city unless you sign up for that city as well. Also, your rides must stay within your city’s designated zone, and some airports are excluded from those areas. For example, in Dallas the DFW and Dallas Love Field are regular price and do not include the Flat-Fare Pricing. You’ll pay your activation fee immediately, but your special pricing will stay active for 30 days (or until you use all your rides).

Here’s the full list of fares. Don’t forget to add that activation fee of either $5, $10 or $20 when doing your own math:

  • Boston: $4.99 UberX rides
  • Chicago: $4.49 UberX rides
  • Dallas: $5.99 UberX rides
  • Los Angeles:$3.99 UberX rides
  • Miami: $4.99 UberX rides
  • New York City:  $5.99 UberX rides
  • San Diego: $4.99 UberX rides
  • San Francisco: $4.99 UberX rides
  • Seattle: $4.49 UberX rides
  • Washington, D.C.: $4.49 UberX rides

Should You Pay Upfront for Cheap Uber Rides?

Absolutely. One ride would probably pay for the offer to make it worth it. The designated flat-fare zones are wide and cover most of the areas people go clubbing in or practically anywhere but the airports. We have yet to test out if drivers get alerted on the flat fares and may not pick you up because maybe they make less money? That would seem to be the main issue of if they try and add on surge pricing. Even if you take a few rides on Uber a month and go over 10 miles this seems like a good deal compared to their normal UberX pricing especially without any other offers going on right now with partners such as Quicksilver. We really have to wonder how Uber is able to make these rides so cheap for 30 days!

My personal experience is that I have saved over $300 using Ride Pass (formerly flat fares). I honestly am not sure how Uber is making any money from my trips. Uber certainly makes money when I travel because you can only get the Ride Pass in one city during a certain sign-up time each month I have noticed. I have marked my calendar each month to look for the Ride Pass in my app so I don’t miss it.

 

T-Mobile is giving away tons of freebies each Tuesday!

T-Mobile is giving away tons of freebies each Tuesday!

Get FREE Stuff on T-Mobile Tuesdays! You will be able to access this promotion using their Android or iOS app. Non-T-Mobile customers may also be able to access this promotion here: amoe.t-mobiletuesdays.com,.

This is live again for this week. Access the app to try to get these items:

Rounding out this week’s gifts for T-Mobile customers is $0.25 off a gallon of gas at Shell, up to 20 gallons. The biggest prize if you ask us is that they are giving away free Gas! This is $0.25 off per gallon at Shell. Make sure to sign-up for the Fuel Rewards program here (to extend this to up to 65 cents a gallon savings) for the Free Shell Gas and the promo code will automatically open in your app after you redeem it in the T-Mobile Tuesdays App.

The grand prize winner will receive a weekend getaway to see an event based on ticket availability in the Gametime app. This includes round trip airfare for two (up to $1,200), airport/hotel or hotel/ground transportation (up to $500), two nights in a hotel (up to $1,000), tickets to an event from Gametime (up to $3,000), $500 to spend on meals, and a check for $2,650 to spend on travel expenses or taxes.

FREE MLB.TV Premium for T-Mobile Customers ($112.99 value) on 4/4
Get FREE MLB.TV Premium for T-Mobile Customers! – On April 4th, T-Mobile is giving every customer a free season-long subscription to MLB.TV Premium (a $112.99 value) PLUS MLB.com At Bat Premium–$19.99 value! Download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app to redeem.

T-Mobile is known for doing things a little differently to other carriers, and its rewards program is much the same. When T-Mobile CEO John Legere announced that the company will give all customers a weekly gift, one share of stock, and free in-flight Wi-Fi we were grateful.

The weekly rewards program is pretty simple: it’s called T-Mobile Tuesdays, and it gives every subscriber a free gift every Tuesday. Examples are things like a free (carryout) pizza from Dominos, food from Wendy’s, movie tickets, or free rides with Lyft. There will be some recurring gifts you can claim (like dinner and a movie), while others will be happening on a week-by-week basis. This week, everyone’s going to get a ticket to see Warcraft. Whether that gift makes you happy or afraid probably depends on how many Warcraft trailers you’ve seen so far.

Subscribers have also had a chance for a free hour of Gogo inflight Wi-Fi on every flight they take, in addition to the free texting T-Mobile subscribers already get on planes. One hour of internet means this won’t be a replacement for truly frequent flyers, but an hour of emails and tweeting per flight is a pretty decent perk, all things considered.

To get these rewards, users just need to download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app from the Google Play store or iTunes, verify their T-Mobile number, and start spending the free stuff. It’s possible to spin T-Mobile’s motives here as being a straight publicity grab, in partnership with movie theaters that are mostly empty anyways on Tuesdays, and just want people to come in and buy popcorn. But in all honesty, free stuff is free, and the amount of free stuff you can potentially get in return for a $40 cell contract is sweet.

Past Promo’s
T-Mobile customers can score a free order of chips and guacamole from Chipotle, giving you some Mexican food to follow your pizza from last week. Also available will be a code good for $5 toward a movie rental or TV show purchase from FandangoNOW and two Lyft credits worth $5 each.

Everyone is raving over the Free Chips and Guac at Chipotle but the Lyft credits this week are actually something to be excited about not like the normal ones that expire the next day. This week you can get $5 off two rides each until 3/20 at 11:59pm so you have all weekend to use this deal! If you are new to Lyft sign-up here first with our promo code to save $20 more.

You Can Score More Than Guac!

Twenty-five first prize winners will receive a “Catering for 20” prize that includes include a gift card good for Burritos by the Box for 20, The Two Meat Spread, The Big Spread, or Veggie Spread. Finally, 200 second prize winners will get a “Dinner for Two” prize that includes a $20 Chipotle gift card.
