Random Collection of Deals

Hope everyone is well! Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on one’s perspective) work continues to get in the way of my free time so I have been neglecting the blog!

Anyway, a friend taking a quick trip – with flights already booked on miles – jokingly asked how to get the rest of the trip for free. So I promised to pass along a few deals. Since I was compiling it all anyway, figured I’d post it on my little corner of the Internet in case anyone else finds it useful. 🙂

 

Food offers

Uber Eats is offering $20 off your first order. Feel free to use my referral code eats-ubermywanderlux (enter it in the “Promotions” tab of the app).

LivingSocial Restaurants Plus is offering $20 off your first meal at a participating restaurant. You need to join, register a credit card, and pay for your meal with that credit card. You’ll then earn a statement credit equal to the meal price (up to $20). At this time they have restaurants in only a handful of areas, but they are major metropolitan areas.

Grubhub frequently offers $10 off your first order of $15+. You need one of the ever-changing promo codes, but if you sign up for their emails I’m sure they’ll come. Be on the lookout for the $10 code, not the inferior $7 code. I seem to get a code at least weekly (I give them my spam email account, of course). Alternatively, try one of the recent codes on RetailMeNot.

Travel Is Free has a handful of additional ideas here.

 

Transportation offers

Both Uber and Lyft are offering signup bonuses. I don’t think I actually know anyone under age 60 who doesn’t already have at least one of those accounts, but perhaps you only have one and not both? If so, sign up for the other and get a bonus from that.

Current offers are $20 off your first Uber ride and $50 in free Lyft credit. (The bonus amounts change fairly often, but these are current as of this writing.)

 

$80 off Airbnb

If you don’t already have an Airbnb account, sign up through a referral link to earn a $30 travel credit. So get a friend to refer you, or send me a note if you’d like me to send you a referral.

Airbnb is also offering $50 after completing a “business” stay. Doctor of Credit’s blog has details here.

Note that, since the latter credit isn’t earned until after your stay, combining these offers doesn’t get you $80 off one stay. It’s $30 off the first stay and $50 off a subsequent stay.

Have a great weekend!
