What Happened To Ebates?

Ebates was our go-to cash portal for online shopping. Sure, there were other websites that might offer 1-2% more cash back but for most of our purchases, it’s not worth it for the extra dollar or two to worry about opening up and keeping track of another cashback website.

Delta SkyMiles Teams Up With Ticketmaster

Seemingly out of the blue, I very recently received an email from Delta informing me of their new partnership with Ticketmaster. If you purchase your tickets on Ticketmaster by going through the Delta portal, you’ll receive 1 SkyMile per dollar spent. As a special bonus to celebrate the new partnership, you’ll earn 3 SkyMiles per dollar spent until August 31, 2019.

You have to give Delta some credit. While on one hand they’ve eliminated reward charts and raised prices for awards on their own flights and on partners, they’ve also offered flash sales for award redemptions, higher sign up bonuses for their co-brand credit cards and are now offering a way to earn points that’s different from any other program. They’re at least trying to give the appearance that there’s some value to be had in the program. Your Mileage May Vary as to whether you believe that to be true or not.

To take advantage of this offer, you need to start your ticket purchases on this website:

While I had given up on SkyMiles, they always end up offering just enough to get me interested again.

Fuel Rewards is a program that provides discounts at Shell gas stations. It’s free to sign up and everyone who joins automatically gets some type of savings.
