There are currently 2 online slot game promotions, one from Starwood (W, Westin, Le Meridien, etc.) and one from La Quinta; both give you chances to win points and/or free nights at their chains of hotels.
Take a Spin with SPG (through 2/7/14)
SPG game only allows for 2 spins per day, and the probability of winning is much smaller given it is a higher-end collection; however, you will be entered into drawings for free nights even if you do not win, and I have seen several friends win free nights from this game in recent weeks, so it doesn’t hurt to give it a try! Make sure to have your SPG number and e-mail address ready to play.
La Quinta Returns Stay and Play (through 1/31/2014)
This game lets you play based on “points”, which refresh each day; you can also go for the “bonus spin” which gives you extra points to play with. I have already accumulated about 5,000 points, a little short of the 6,000 points at which redemption begins for free nights. You can log in to the game via Facebook and watch your points rack up!

Amex Sync has offered some great deals in the past and this is no exception – by following this link you can sign up any American Express credit card, spend $75 on Amazon (I just bought a $75 gift card), and American Express will post a statement credit in a few days to your account. This is a pretty awesome deal so sign up while the offer is still live!

I’m always on the lookout for attractive credit card sign-up offers – however these days offers tend to involve (1) non-monetary rewards such as Citi points or miles, and (2) high spending limits in the $3,000-$5,000 range. A lot of offerings are also targeted at business customers.
However, the Discover It is giving a very good cash-back opportunity: you can receive $150 back after spending $750 – that’s like getting 20% off on whatever you buy with your next $750! The trick is to go to this creditcards.com page and click on the $150 offer from Discover It (should be the 6th card down the list). This is a fairly basic card so most people should not have trouble getting approved. Once you put $750 on it, you receive $150 cash back!
But wait – there’s a shortcut: you don’t even have to make $750 in purchases. Amazon Payments allows you to send up to $1,000 to another account holder (get a significant other or friend) each month via credit card without a fee. This means you can instantly grab your $750 cash back by putting payment through Amazon and requesting the same amount back from your partner!
This appears to be a limited time offer and is the best cashback ratio Discover has offered thus far; don’t wait to sign up now!

There is a class action application through 11/29/2013 where you can apply for a $5/box rebate on Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats purchases made between 2008-2009, due to unsubstantiated claims of improving kids’ cognitive functions. No proof of purchase is required.

Here is another very popular brand that is offering customers rebates for past purchases due to mislabeling of ingredients. Although I have not saved my receipts for my grocery shopping in recent years, I know I have spent hundreds of dollars buying Silk Soymilk and Horizon Milk as it is one of the dominant brands in my metro area.
You can follow this link to submit your information, estimate your purchases made between January 2005 and April 2013, and sign up for a refund. The procedure is similar to the Naked Juice settlement I have posted previously. Note that you must submit your claim by October 26, 2013 to receive your refund as part of the settlement.

There have been many American Express “Sync” offers floating around in the past 2-3 months, which promises $5-$20 cash back BUT only after you spend a much higher amount at participating retailers such as Whole Foods and Best Buy. However, there is now a true, free $5 offer from TripAdvisor!
All you have to do is follow this link and sign in to both your American Express account (with a credit or charge card) and your TripAdvisor account (or set up a new one). After that, leave a single feedback for a restaurant, city, attraction, or tour company you used while traveling domestically or abroad, wait for an approval in 24-48 hours, and a $5 statement credit will be applied to your credit card!
I am a big travel junkie and had no problem coming up with a review for a recent good (or bad) experience. This is a great way to add content to your TripAdvisor profile while getting rewarded for it!
