Gary has a great post about using international booking sites to get Best Rate Guaranteed bonuses!
The Noob Traveler has an interesting follow-up to yesterday’s Capital One offer. He seems to have been able to use an expired offer to get $400 back for a small $50 deposit and a direct deposit into a personal checking account!
You can still get $5 from TripAlertz for every person you invite. You can use my link or one of the links in the comments if you don’t have an account.
NOTE: Not to alarm anybody. Not to sell more card referrals. Just the facts: I was asked to add the term “Limited Time Offer” to the Chase Sapphire Preferred card ads as of today. That’s all I know. They have not given me anymore info other than that.
