The off again and on again digital download option for Sky Magazine is back again for May. You can simply read it online or, for now, download a PDF to read when you want to. I love the download option. BTW Skybonus 5k offer is back with SKYMAY14 but you can also use the referral method and we BOTH get 5k this way.

Next, if you have US Air points, and want to fly British Air 1st class, and save O’ like $1000 in tax you really should make the time to read Gary’s post. I am no master on booking US Air but if you need help I would reach out to Adam ASAP to get something booked!

Lastly, I just ordered $2000 worth of Visa Debit Gift cards from Staples online (10x$200), starting thanks to my Discover IT card (one reason you should have this card) at their portal to get 5% there, and used my Chase INK VISA business travel card that pays 5% at office supply stores and I get 1% from VisaEdgeSavings so I will get 11% back on the cards less the $70 in fees but free S&H for the cards. Making almost $160 for a few clicks is not all bad. Need more direction? Look at Greg’s post here. – René

  1. YAY! I didn’t want to get stuck with 10 GC and no bonus points!

  2. Renee–do you have to pay with your discover card to get the cash back at the shopdiscover website? Thanks.

  3. @Gaurav – no, and if you do, you don’t get the 5x+1x from the INK card. reports from the past are that you get the 5x from ShopDiscover and the 6x from INK but just because it worked in past is NO 100% it will work again. I did a order for $2000 to test and will report if good or bad.

  4. Please stop claiming the BA surcharges are a “tax” – they are not a tax but an airline surcharge.

  5. Thanks Renee. A tangential question–any way to add an option for people to check in case they want to be notified of new responses to a post? Often, there is very helpful information to be gleaned from reader responses and quite a few blogs seem to offer the option.

  6. @Gaurav – oh I like your thinking. Humm.. let me check with BoardingArea tech support and will advise. Txs – Rene
