I’m a huge procrastinator, so I always end up buying my gifts last minute. This year I’m trying to be a bit more prudent because I’m trying to do 100% of my shopping online. Not only to avoid disastrous in-store shopping experiences, but to maximize the points I earn. When you go into a store and buy merchandise you only get the points from swiping your card. When you shop online you get the shopping portal points for clicking through to your retailer plus the points from using your credit card.

Here are some of the top deals for shopping portals:

Chase Ultimate Rewards (You need to have a Sapphire Preferred or Ink Bold Card - both of which are offering generous 50,000 point sign-up bonuses): 35 extra points per dollar 20 extra points per dollar

    15x for Groupon at the Chase mall I think is one of the best deals. I take advantage of it often.

    Kohl’s 10x combined with 10x this quarter from Chase Freedom = Kohl’s 20x. Plenty of stuff to buy there AND you get 20% back in “Kohl’s Cash”. $10 kohl’s cash for every $50 spent.

    The Groupon is a fantastic deal, as long as there is something you’d buy anyway. Being a Groupon Junkie I was surprised to find no much out there for me this week. I was considering trying a GC purchase (specifically excluded in the Ts&Cs) … then I noticed that the bonus is good until Jan 31st!
