American Express credit card offers
As some of you may know, American Express offers various deals across merchants on an ongoing basis. For example, some are spend $x, get $x back. Another example is 10% back (usually with maximum amounts back) on every transaction. These deals can be found here (make sure you're logged into your American Express account0. Once you've found an offer, simply click "Add to card" and then going shopping. Hint: these work on gift cards, so it's an easy way to get discounted gift cards. Note: not every card receives all the offers, so you'll have to check each time whether you got lucky. Alot of the merchants are overpriced to begin with, so normally these ones are not good offers, but occasionally they'll offer merchants like Lowes, Staples or Dell, which when combined with other offers or coupons can be a good purchase.
January 2019: selected lucky card members get 10% back at Lowes, Staples or Dell through June 30, 2019 (maximum statement credit of $100 at Lowes, $150 at Staples and $1500 at Dell).

Mint Mobile 3 months service for only $20
I'm a personal user of Mint Mobile who are a virtual provider using the T-mobile network. This introductory offer is great for new customers and you can easily purchase ongoing service for a much more reasonable fee than other more main stream providers. I've been with them for over a year and it's been seamless, however as with everything in life, there are some caveats, so I've listed some of them below.
Mint Mobile is offering for new lines: 3-Months of Mint Mobile Prepaid Unlimited Talk & Text + 5GB LTE Data (per month) prepaid plan for $20 (that's $20 for the 3 momths, not $20 per month, so this is a big saving). Shipping is free when you click the 'Apply' link near the free shipping offer in cart.
Note, must activate prepaid SIM within 45 days of purchase (see details). Once your introductory 3-month prepaid airtime ends, you will have the option to continue on a 3, 6 or 12-month plan at the standard rate (see link below) unless cancelled.
- if you're going to port in your existing number, you must during it during initial activation. There is no option to port in you number after activation.
- Network runs on t-mobile towers only, so no roaming, which I've never found to be a problem.
- no T-mobile perks.
- data is technically however it's only full speed up until your LTE allotment and then speed drops to 128 kbs, which is pretty slow, but usable for text based apps such as Whatsapp.
- support isn't great. If its technical, call T-mobile directly, they see and can manage your connection.
