Another option might be SLO Airport. I know United operates flights into San Luis Obispo airport; you'd likely have to connect through San Francisco or Los Angeles to get there, and then could be at...

Hyatt canít do that because Marriott Vacation Club owns HRC. I was a bit bummed that Kaanapali Ali is getting a 40k/night price tag, given the HRC almost right next door is 30k/night and IMO a much...

Only if you live in an area where you have gas stations attached to your Safeway stores. My Vons/Pavillions dont have gas stations, so weíre stuck with .20 off at CVX stations, which isnít a good...

Often times the MCGCs can be used with Plastiq for a 1% fee; the same can't be said for VGCs.

Also, way better location than PH Aviara. Besides the Del, Marriott, and Loews, there really isn't much in the way of "chain hotels" on Coronado Island, so this is a strong contender IMO for a place...

Iíd avoid the PH Aviara altogether. Itís an upscale hotel stuck inland in a golf course and a bunch of tract home McMansions. Traffic on I-5 between San Diego and Carlsbad can be a huge PITA, so...

This wasnít by checkout; the cashier had to physically go get the variable for me to buy in a box kept behind the counter, which is why I assumed everything was fine. I figured if it was stored in a...

I check the variables immediately after purchase. My local Vons now stamps all cards as ďinspected,Ē but I still check because Iíve had several in the last year that I needed to replace right away.

Can confirm that logging into J4U through Safeway rather than Vons allows for use of $10 off coupon. Also looks like there is a $2 off Univision prepaid card. If you can have more than one of these...

The Marriott on Coronado Island is pretty nice (and super family friendly), and IMO is the best Marriott property in San Diego. If I wanted to burn 500k Marriott points in the US, Iíd head to the...

Ugh, my go-to store finally got nuked by a whale. I found a pack of $200 VGCs, but then was told by the store manager that he has to enforce to 1 per household rule. Never been an issue before, but...

Primo location in one of the most beautiful coastal spots in California. Is it worth it? I think it's a bargain at 60k Bonvoy points a night, but probably wouldn't drop $1k/night on a room here.

Good luck with the Ebates clawbacks from Staples VGC purchases. I've yet to have a transaction go through. Dosh shows as "pending" but eventually clears for in store purchases though.

Apologies if this has been answered, but does the 3% eBates credit card bonus apply to GCs purchased through the GCM eBates portal? That would stack to 4% cash back, which seems far too easy.
