In October 2013, I posted that US Bank had a targeted promo for the Flexperks card, US Bank is back at it again with another targeted promo for May to June.
You must register and spend $1,250 by June 2014 for a bonus of 3,500 points. This promotion is a lot easier than the one in October.
For those in NYC, the billionaire who ran for mayor and is an oil tycoon owns a series of supermarkets that you can buy $500 AMEX gift cards for $6.95 fee.
Your best bet is to go to the customer service desk and purchase the cards as the regular checkout queues require a key override.
