I stacked a deal on Friday that meant for nearly-free food for us from a meal delivery system we haven’t tried before — and you may do better than I did if you also have the SimplyMiles offer advertised in my email (but not found in my account).
Say it with me: you can score a trifecta of deals on Trifecta meals.
- There are three potentially stacking deals for Trifecta Meal Delivery:
- Capital One Shopping is offering $50 in rewards when you shop Trifecta Meal Delivery (YMMV, but it has been $50 on the public Capital One Shopping portal even when not logged in over the past few days)
- A Citi merchant Offer is out that is good for $50 back on $50 or more (Expires 7/17/23)
- I received an email advertising an AA SimplyMiles offer (which is also card-linked and could potentially be linked to the same Citi card that has the Citi Merchant Offer) for 2,325 miles on a purchase of $50 or more
- A new customer promo code offered 50% off the first delivery
- Terms vary for each component above. See your offers for details.
I did this deal on Friday and I wanted to report it particularly for those playing the American Airlines Loyalty Points games.
I had never heard of Trifecta Meal Delivery and at this point I still don’t know much about them, but on Saturday I received an email from American Airlines SimplyMiles advertising a deal good for 2,325 miles on a purchase of $50 or more at Trifecta Meal Delivery.
I didn’t think very much of that offer until I was checking Citi Merchant Offers a little while later and I saw the offer for $50 back on $50 or more at Trifecta on my wife’s Citi Premier card.
The potential to stack caught my eye.
For those unfamiliar, American Airlines Simply Miles is a card-linked offer platform offered by American Airlines whereby you link offers to your Mastercard(s). You can only use a Mastercard, but basically any Mastercard works.
I synced up the Citi Merchant Offer right away. Later, I went to add the SimplyMiles offer, but despite clicking through the email that offer was nowhere to be found on SimplyMiles. I don’t know if it disappeared before I tried to add it or if adding the Citi Merchant Offer somehow blocked the SimplyMiles offer from showing up, but it hasn’t been a problem to stack those two things before.
I therefore did not get the SimplyMiles offer after all, but given the 7/17/23 expiration, hopefully someone still finds it in their account.
The good news is that I noticed that Capital One Shopping, the public shopping portal open to anyone (no Capital One card required) was offering $50 back on $50 or more at Trifecta Meal Delivery (YMMV – this was a public offer that I saw even in browser where I wasn’t logged in).
I figured it was still worth doing the deal since I knew that I should be able to stack the $50 back from Capital One Shopping and the $50 back from the Citi Merchant Offer. What I wasn’t sure about was whether both would stack with the Trifecta new customer offer — singing up for emails gave me a code for 50% off my first meal.
Sure enough, it did stack. I used the 50% off code for my first order and I can confirm that I received the email from Capital One Shopping indicating that my purchase tracked.
There were a lot of ways to customize your meal delivery and frankly it was so complicated that my wife and I weren’t interested in wasting forever in figuring out what would be cheapest. You could definitely order less than we did. Instead, we just decided to place an order for what we’d find useful. In the end, we got 10 entrées and 5 breakfasts for $125 after the 50% off code (note that I didn’t anticipate the $9.99 for shipping as that didn’t get added until the very end, but I decided it wasn’t worth going back and choosing 7 entrées instead of 10 over that).
If you have more patience than me, you can probably figure out how to pay a lot closer to $50. In the end, we expected to get $50 back from Capital One Shopping and $50 back from Citi (by paying with the Citi Premier card after syncing the offer), so we were happy with a net cost of $24.99 for 10 entrées and 5 breakfasts. I don’t know what to expect in terms of the kits, but anyone who has been to a grocery store in 2023 knows that $25 for 15 portions of almost anything is a solid deal deal to be satisfied. Hopefully we like the meals….and in case we don’t, I paused delivery on the next 3 weeks after our first delivery, which will hopefully give me plenty of time to decide to keep or cancel.
