30 American Airlines Miles Per Dollar On FTD Valentine’s Flowers

American Airlines announced yesterday a special offer from FTD for AAdvantage frequent flyer members  which allows them to earn 30 AAdvantage miles for every dollar spent on Valentine’s Day flowers, toys and candies.

We value American miles at around two cents a piece, so that’s like getting 60 percent off your flowers. And don’t worry, we won’t tell your special someone that you got all those miles. It’ll be our little secret.

Buying the biggest version of this bouquet will get you 3,000 miles, which we value at around $60. Not too shabby at all.

Citi® / AAdvantage® cardmembers also earn an additional 100 AAdvantage bonus miles from FTD with each transaction.

The offer is valid through Feb. 15, 2014, in case you’re one of those that likes to run a bit late.

If you’re not already an AAdvantage member, you can sign up here.

Discover it: 18 Months No Interest & 5% Cash Back Make For A Great Offer

You’ve probably seen the commercials by now promoting “real person” customer service, which is the real deal and a great feature of the Discover it credit card. But here’s the best part of the Discover it: 18 months no interest on balance transfers, 6 months no interest on purchases, and 5 percent cash back in rotating quarterly categories. Getting any sort of rewards back on a no-fee card is always great, and coupling this with the 18 month no interest balance transfer period makes this a great card for carrying a balance.

However, there are a few different offers out there for the Discover it card, all of which have slightly different terms. These differing terms are important depending on how you intend to use the card.  Continue reading Discover it: 18 Months No Interest & 5% Cash Back Make For A Great Offer

Amex Offers $25 Amazon Refund On $75 Purchase

The fine folks over at Million Miles Secrets brought our attention to a deal yesterday that blows the Small Business Saturday $10 statement credit out of the water (though we truly did enjoy the nearly free pizza we had on Saturday!)

Now through the end of the year, American Express cardmembers can earn a $25 statement credit (read: refund) just by spending $75 or more on Amazon.com. Considering Amazon essentially sells everything, it shouldn’t be hard to figure out a way to funnel some holiday spend Amazon’s way and effectively get a third off your purchase.

American Express Gift Card Free Shipping Promo Codes

We wrote earlier today about no-fee American Express gift cards and how they can help you meet minimum spending requirements, earn points for yourself and buy gifts for friends and family. One of the only drawbacks to the deal unfortunately, is that you still get stuck paying rather hefty shipping fees when you order the cards from the American Express website.

But after writing that post we stumbled across an update from Hustler Money Blog that includes free shipping promo codes for the gift cards, which makes the proposition a total win.

No-Fee American Express Gift Cards Available Now

American Express is currently offering gift cards with no fees for the holidays. Typically, Amex gift cards can cost between $3.95 and $6.95 per card, so the offer is particularly good for those of us who want to buy gift card in lower denominations (thus raising the effective percentage fee) and for those of us who are just generally terrible at buying actual gifts for friends and family.

But perhaps the best part of these no-fee gift cards is that they can be used to meet the minimum spending requirements for a credit card sign-up bonus, meet spending thresholds, or just keep earning points on your rewards or airline miles cards. You can use any credit card to purchase the gift cards, which can be valued at $20 all the way up to $3,000.
