Deal Roundup
Written by Charlie

Good afternoon and welcome to today’s Deal Roundup! There were a few deals that I felt may be helpful to you so here is a roundup of the ones that I have seen so far.

Deal Roundup: Amazon Kindle Deals, Amex Offers, And Visa/MC Deals

Kindle Discount

If you have read the blog for a while, you know I am a big fan of Amazon’s Kindle readers. In fact, I have probably given away more of them than any other single item on the blog – at least 10 of them have been sent out as prizes. Well, if you were looking for one, then today might give you the push you have been looking for.

Kindle Paperwhite

Amazon has two of their Kindles on sale for Mother’s Day – in case you wanted to get one for your mother or yourself! The Kindle Touch is on sale for $59 (down from $79) and the Paperwhite is on sale for $99 (down from $119). The Paperwhite model has the backlight that allows you to read your books at night without needing an extra light. I have this model and absolutely love it.

Amazon Kindle Touch Link $59

For a $20 discount, these are at a pretty good price point.

$20 Off Purchase Of $300 In Visa Gift Cards

Deal Roundup

Office Max is running a two-week sale (good through May 16) on the purchase of $300 Visa gift cards. With $300 in gift card purchases or more, you will receive $20 off that purchase. The terms say there is a limit of 2 offers per customer but many people have been able to get more than that, depending on the store.

Make sure you use a Chase Ink card on this purchase to earn 5 Ultimate Reward points per dollar. This deal wipes out the fee for buying the card and still gives you a little extra money off. This is a great deal for some free money and points!
