Bitmo is running a promotion today on DoorDash and Uber Eats gift cards. And if you plan on ordering in a nice dinner (or maybe some beverages) on Valentine’s Day or while watching the NFL playoffs, this could be a good way to save a few bucks. Or if you’re traveling and there’s not a restaurant near your hotel or Airbnb, food delivery services can act as a de facto roomservice. 🙂
And Platinum Card from American Express members can save even more with their PayPal statement credits!
Let’s check out the deals.
Just a quick heads-up that several food delivery service statement credits expire on Thursday for holders of several credit cards. And if you need some ideas on how to spend them quickly, we have a few suggestions.
If you haven’t yet signed up for DoorDash, there’s a great promotion right now that saves new members 50% on their first order (up to $20) and enjoy free delivery!
And the benefits should stack with the perks available on several Chase cards!
I recently activated and used my Chase Sapphire Reserve DoorDash benefits. (Our stove was broken and we needed some pasta for our Italian night. DoorDash to the rescue!)
In case you forgot about this perk — or need some handholding and explaining — here’s how it works!

On a somewhat brighter note, a young man who missed his lady love jet skied to get his girl. But the voyage didn’t go exactly as planned.
I’ve long loved my American Express Gold Card. It’s packed with great points-earning potential and includes some statement credits that drastically help offset its annual fee.
But now is an especially opportune time to pick up the card. Let’s check out the card.
Here’s a fun little perk that could help get you through the next couple of months: Instacart and Mastercard teamed up to offer cardholders two months free of the shopping service’s Instacart Express program.
We’re frequently asked, “Which card is better? The Chase Freedom Flex or the Chase Freedom Unlimited? Which one do you think I should get?”
As with most advice we dispense on this blog, the answers to such questions vary from person to person. Not everyone’s budget, travel goals, and spending habits are the same. (Not to mention, 5/24 status plays a big factor when deciding which credit cards to get.)
Also, there’s no law — as far as I know — stating you can’t carry both. So it doesn’t necessarily have to be an either/or situation. But when 5/24 comes into play, you might have to decide which card is better for you.
The cards overlap in many areas. Neither has an annual fee. Both have several of the same bonus categories. Their welcome bonuses are the same.
But there are three significant differences between the two.
Below is a table comparing and contrasting the two cards. Their differences are highlighted in red. And we’ll discuss each in a couple of minutes.
Never did I think I’d put the Amex Platinum Card at the top of my “Best Grocery Store Credit Cards” list.
