BJ’s Wholesale Club (bjs.com) has a terrific sale on some travel gift cards at the moment. We don’t see an expiration date on these deals, so we highly suggest that you jump on them today if you’re interested.
Here are the deals on travel-related GCs that we’re seeing:
- $500 GC for $424.99
- $250 GC for $212.49
- $100 GC for $84.99
- $200 GC for $174.99
- $100 GC for $87.99
- $25 GC for $20.99
- $100 GC for $84.99
All of these appear to be physical gift cards with free shipping and delivery in 3-5 business days.
Go through a shopping portal for possible extra earnings if you’re purchasing from BJs.com. Gift card purchases are generally excluded from the terms, but we have recently had success receiving portal rewards from Rakuten on GC purchases from BJs.com in the $200 range. According to Cashback Monitor, portal payouts today for BJs.com include:
- Rakuten: 1.5% / 1.5x MR
- United: 1 mile/$ with UA credit card; 0.5 miles/$ if no UA card
- Alaska: 1 mile/$
- Remember that the Alaska Mileage Plan shopping portal has an active bonus promotion through 1/14/20 if you haven’t used it yet
- Southwest: 1 point/$
- American: 1 mile/$
- Chase shopping portal: 1 UR point/$
To pay for this deal, use either (a) a card that earns a bonus category for online purchases or wholesale clubs (for instance, the B of A Cash Rewards card with online purchases activated as your bonus category, or the Citi AT&T Access More card) ; (b) a card where you’re earning a sign-up bonus, upgrade bonus, or big-spend benefit; or, if you don’t have either of those, then (c) the card that gives you the best earnings for everyday purchases (such as the Amex Blue Business Plus card (2x MR points/$) or Citi Double Cash card (2%/2x TYPs/$)).
Also, remember that you can do this deal even if you’re not currently a BJ’s member. BJ’s has two very convenient options for online-only shopping. First, you can get a one-day online pass for free (a one-day trial membership, if you will). Second, you can purchase an online-only membership at the very modest price of $10 for one year.
We got a $10 BJs online-only membership successfully recently. If you need more information on this option, please see our article:
