Miles to Memories recap

Best of Miles to Memories 4/18/16/-4/25/16

Welcome to the weekly “Best of Miles to Memories” recap series. Here you will find links to all of the still relevant posts from the past week. This week was a bit slow due to travels and this recap is a bit late, but I covered a new Staples moneymaker, a 250K Amex Biz Platinum offer and talked about my case of the Amex Offers blues.

To make the posts in this recap easier to wade through, my “Editor’s Picks” in each section are in bold. If you have questions about anything you read feel free to contact me anytime. Enjoy!

  1. I am not sure if you received this or covered this — so many Staples promos going on that it is getting hard to keep track.

    Staples sent me an email April 25 and towards the middle of it is basically this: buy $100 card get free $20 e promo card. It is some sort of promotion that is tying in with teacher appreciation week but you can just send the cards to yourself instead of to a teacher. You get the $100 card by email immediately, and the $20 promo cards will arrive by email on Sunday, May 1. The promotion will run until all promo cards have been purchased. The $20 e-promo cards are valid for noly 2 weeks: 5/1-5/14.

    I cannot verify yet if the purchase will generate 5x ink UR rewards as the site the email sends you to is: So, it is either $20 free and 1x miles or $20 free and 5x miles. But this is a limited promotion and I bought the maximum offering of 2 cards. Fingers crossed.

    Free $ 20
    ePromo Card

    with purchase of $ 100 in
    Staples ® eGift Cards.


    Ends 4/30/16. Limit 2.
    While supplies last. Online only.
