Boring Staples Easy Rebates on Reams of Paper (Plus British Airways and Uber Annoyances)

Good morning from Denver, CO.  Another Sunday means another round of paper deals from our favorite Office Supply Store – Staples.  This week’s offers are the usual 1 cent after coupon and rebate on a single ream of paper and $9.99 after coupon and rebate on a 10 ream box.  You can view all Staples coupons here.

Chime Card Evolves and Removes Offers for Certain Users

(Hat Tip to Carl for the Facebook message)

Good morning from Denver, Colorado.  I just received a Facebook message from Carl alerting me to a recent negative change to my Chime Card offers:

FYI, my Chime offers all vanished this week. I thought they’d gone out of business or there was a bug, but I learned from a friend that all of the same ones were still there. Chime’s response: “we’re simply reevaluating how and when we show offers! Please keep checking back! If you would like to close your account, though, just let me know. Thanks!”

So apparently if you use the card as intended on occasion, they remove all offers so they won’t lose any additional money funding discounts. If you use it very rarely, you’ll still have deals.

I checked my Chime Card account and all my offers are gone too.

Epic RV Road Trip from Los Angeles to Denver thanks to TransferCar

Good evening from St. George, Utah.  This is day 2 of my epic RV road trip from Los Angeles to Denver, made possible by TransferCar’s $1 per rental day service.  I wrote about TransferCar a few weeks ago here: Get Free One Way Car or RV Rentals with TransferCar.

I promise to write more about the service and my experience, but for now, I wanted to share some pics from my trip.  Here is my 27 foot RV rental.  It is not the huge RV (thank goodness), but it is somewhat tricky to drive.

Chase Ink Bold / Plus Retention Offers and Spending Bonuses

Good morning everyone, this is going to be a short post about my recent call to the Chase retention department.  My Chase Ink Bold Visa Charge Card annual fee is coming due in a few days, so I called Chase and asked what retention offers were available.  In the past, I received $100 statement credits with no additional spending for paying the $95 annual fee.  I was hoping to get the same retention offer this year, but that was not the case.
