I discovered these deals on Amazon, which I can’t say for sure are for everyone, but they are worth a look as we pass the time during the Covidpocolypse.

$10 Kindle Credit

I was looking at a Kindle book priced at $9.99. But just below the selection button on the screen (where you toggle between Kindle books and Paperback, etc) there was a small print offer for a $10 Kindle credit good until April 30th. What’s the catch? Nothing. I applied the code and bought my $9.99 eBook, owning nothing. Sweet deal!

💳 If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Free Kindle Books

A much smaller selection here (since the above credit is for everyone) but check out this selection of free Kindle reads. As an aside, I’d be very happy to lower the cost of the MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points Kindle version to $0.00 for a few months if anyone knows how (I can’t seem to set it below $0.99). (Drop me a note or comment if you do!)

DoorDash Deal Stacking

DoorDash has plenty of promos from time to time, so stack those with the 20% off DoorDash (and streaming services) being offered by SoFi. Plus, if you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve card, you also have your free DashPass (free delivery on many orders over $12) and $60 in annual free credits.

Uber Eats is on Ebates

Meaning that you can get 5% cash back or 5X American Express Membership Rewards on the Ebates app. It won’t stack with UberEats promos like the recent $10 off $30 deals, but if you decide to place a full price UberEats order, selecting the 5X Membership Rewards option is like 8.75% cash back in my book (at my current miles and points valuations).  This is a limited time offer.

Still, if you are ordering in during this time, make sure to compare the place you want at all the various apps like GrubHub, Caviar and Postmates as I’m finding that both prices and fees fluctuate wildly. In fact on a recent order, I was excited about $10 off $30 with UberEats until I noticed that I could pay $2 less ordering on Seamless without any deal.
