I’m the type of person who has to do things as soon as I think of them or I have a tenancy to forget about them. Either that or I keep putting it off until it is too late. It is just who I am. I’ve got a pretty good feeling that I’m not the only one though. This post is for those of you who are like me and have either forgotten or been procrastinating.
Back in June, Citi sent out targeted offers to AAdvantage cardholders offering the opportunity to earn a pair of Admirals Club day passes for completing a specific spending requirement. The offers ranged anywhere from requiring $250 in spending up to $600 in spending at gas stations, grocery stores, departments stores, or restaurants. I did not receive the offer on any of my cards but my wife’s card was targeted for the higher spending offer requiring $600 in purchases at select merchants.
Here were are at the end of September and I’ve just finished trimming our basement and needed to order blinds. No surprise that I had not gotten around to getting this spend accomplished earlier. JcPenney was running a 30% off sale + we had a 10% off coupon which brought the cost of the blinds down a little short of the $600 needed. No big deal, a few Shell gas gift cards and the spend has been covered.
Anyway – Time is running you. If you have yet to meet the requirements on your offer you only have a couple of days left as the deadline is coming on Tuesday, September 30th. If you find yourself a little short, keep in mind you can always get a few gift cards to put you over the threshold, just make sure they are cards to places you would be spending money at anyway.
