Quick Thoughts

Stephen posted this deal earlier this week. To summarize, you have to first log into your account and activate the deal here:

Then you’ll want to consider how to pay to stack the best deal possible. Here are some of your options:

  • Amex Marriott 8x (you must register for this Amex Offer in advance)
  • Discover: 5% (must activate the quarterly bonus category)
  • Chase Freedom or Freedom Flex: 5x if you check out via PayPal (must register for quarterly bonus category)
  • ABOC Platinum Rewards: 5% (must activate quarterly bonus)
  • BOA Cash Rewards if you have chosen online shopping as your 3% category (which becomes 5.25% for those with Platinum Honors)

Keep in mind that this is only valid on one transaction. I nearly bought a $50 gift card in the very early morning hours because I had to buy a $50 item anyway, but then I realized that I could only make one gift card order and I had to re-think how much I should buy (I ultimately decided to buy the full $500, much to the joy of someone on the Target marketing team no doubt).

Target runs this deal every year and has been pretty aggressive about clawing back gift card value on those who try to circumvent the limit. Don’t try to exceed the $500 per customer and you should be fine. Similarly, I think the risk of claw back from any of the issuers offering spending bonuses is very small if you’re only doing the $500 max on this deal.
