Albertsons, Safeway, Vons and other stores that use Just For U have a couple of digital coupons that can make you a few dollars on Mastercard gift cards while racking up a little more bonused spend at grocery stores.
- Albertsons & its affiliate stores have digital coupons offering the following savings on Mastercard gift cards:
- Expires June 18, 2019.
- Limit 1 of each offer per household.
Buying two $50 Mastercard gift cards should earn you $0.10 while the $100 cards should earn you $3.10 in profit. This will also get you ~$300 in bonused spend which will earn you ~1,500 Ultimate Rewards if you have a Chase Freedom card and haven’t already maxed out your 5% categories this quarter.
Check your receipt after buying these to make sure that the instant discount(s) have been applied. I took advantage of the $10 off a $100 Visa gift card deal the other week but the $10 didn’t get taken off. I was able to get the $10 back from Customer Service when showing them that the digital coupon was loaded to my account, so I’m glad I checked before leaving the store.
I just purchased 2x$100 Albertsons gift certificates. Unfortunately MC charges a gift card activation fee. So, my net charge was $196, not $185 ($200-$15) as I expected. I am not complaining because I was still planning to purchase some Albertsons gift cards to maximize my Chase Freedom x5 offer for this quarter.
I just thought however that, unlike when you purchase a store gift card, MC does charges an activation fee and readers should know that.
Yep – unfortunately the activation fees are why you only make a $3.10 profit rather than $15.
MC and Visa charging activation fee.. isn’t that a basic common knowledge in this game??? 🙂
How does buying $200 in gift cards earn $300 in bonuses spend?
There are digital coupons for 2x $50 Mastercard gift cards and 2x $100 Mastercard gift cards. That’s the $300, although it’s slightly less than that after activation fees due to the $25 in savings from the coupons.
