Reload your BART Clipper Card and Activate Whole Foods AMEX Offer

Good morning everyone.  Yesterday at work, my coworker mentioned the recent round of AMEX Offers (yes, I work with people who are miles and points collectors too).  I told him about my recent gift card score at Home Depot ($75 of Panera Bread and $75 of Starbucks Gift Cards) and then I told him that there were no third party gift cards at Whole Foods.  He told me that I could reload my Clipper Card (card used for public transportation around the Bay Area and to/from SFO and OAK airports) at Whole Foods.  Really?  This was too good to be true, so I had to test it out.  After work, I took my Clipper Card “shopping” at Whole Foods to find out.

Home Depot and Whole Foods AMEX Offer Gift Card Update (Pics of Gift Card Rack)

Good morning everyone, yesterday I wrote New AMEX Offers: Home Depot, Whole Foods, Fairway Market, and Hilton Garden Inn.  In that post, I recommended buying gift cards at various merchants to complete the AMEX Offers.  I knew Home Depot sold third party gift cards, but I wasn’t sure about the others.  Last night after work, I went hunting for gift cards at Home Depot.  I needed to buy $75 worth of gift cards to trigger the $15 statement credit ($15 back represents a 20% discount on the face value of the gift card).

British Airways Avios Off-Peak Pricing is a Pleasant Surprise

Good afternoon everyone!  Yesterday, I spent a few hours planning my 2 week Eurotrip (more details later) and got to experience the new British Airways Avios off-peak award pricing.  I found a good flight from London (LHR) to Paris (CDG) on British Airways for $111.  Since this flight is operated by British Airways, I checked to see what the award price would be.
