A question we’ve been getting often in the comments is:
Can I get referral credit when referring my friend to a Chase credit card when they plan on applying in-branch? They may be applying in-branch since they are more comfortable that way or because the in-branch offer is superior.
This question has been asked many times recently due to the increased 80,000 points Chase Sapphire Reserve bonus. The bonus is the same in-branch and online, but the branch offer waives the first year’s $95 annual fee.
I’ve seen references in the past to be able to go into a Chase branch with the referral info, and the banker would then be able to give the superior branch offer and still have it track back to the referrer so that they get their bonus as well.
A recent Reddit thread mentions that idea as well, noting that you should come into the branch with the referrer’s signup link. I’d recommend also having the referrer’s name, address, and phone number in case the banker asks.
That thread seems to suggest that you can only get the branch offer and the referral offer in the case where it’s a matter of a waived annual fee. However, if the referral offer is lower than the branch offer, the thread suggest it won’t work.
If you try it either way, let us know how it goes.
Many people report getting an email from American Express that their card was removed from Google Pay for no apparent reason:
Your American Express® Card ending in _____ was removed from Google Pay on your phone. If your American Express Card account has not been cancelled, you can re-add your Card to Google Pay at any time.
Seems to be some sort of glitch – if you got notification of your card being removed, it’s not necessarily a sign your card is breached (or, at a minimum, it’s something happening to many people).
There’s been some talk about a new verbiage in the terms of Stop&Shop, Giant, Martin’s deals which states:
Limit one (1) gift card rewards offer per household.
Sounds like you’ll only get points on a single purchase, so be sure to buy the full $2,000 in a single transaction. If you split it up or if you come back again to utilize the same deal, you might not get any points at all. When a new deal comes out, you can do it again as your limit gets reset.
Multiple readers report this is now actually being enforced, at least in some places and on some fuel points deals. It might depend on the deal and/or the location as to whether this limit applies. Let us know your experiences in the comments below.
Update 4/15/21: Available again, this time returning customers get 1 month.

Good chance to try out the service now or just to get 3 months of free music. This is working even for who have had Amazon Music Unlimited in the past, so long as you are not a current subscriber. Working for both Prime and non-Prime accounts.
After signing up, I immediately went to this link to cancel the Music Unlimited subscription and it’s now showing as cancelled, but I still keep the 3 months of free Music Unlimited. Otherwise, set yourself a reminder to reevaluate before the monthly fee becomes due.

Hat tip to reader JJ
Make sure you cancel membership if you don’t want it long term as this enrolls you in auto billing. Probably not that useful.
Check your Kroger stores coupons for the following offers:
Typically, gift cards earn 2x, and occasionally they’ll put out offers like these to bump it up to 4x. You should see these coupons for all Kroger-family brands. Deal usually becomes available at Harris Teeter as well in roughly the same time period.
This works on all third party gift cards and fixed value Visa/Mastercard. Remember to use a card that earns at a high rate on grocery store purchases. There is also a $10 off $150 deal that we will post about shortly.
Many people are seeing an increased signup bonus on the American Express business Platinum card when using a incognito mode:
Better than the recent 130,000 point bonus. I suspect this won’t show up for everybody and it should show even if using a referral link but again won’t always show. Fantastic deal if you’ve never had the Business Platinum before (if you have you won’t get the sign up bonus). Will add this to the best credit card bonuses. As always you can read more about American Express cards here. There is also an increased offer of 90,000 on the business gold (possibly even higher).
