Good news: It’s still not too late to take advantage of great deals as we head into the summer.

Many retailers are keeping their deals and discounts running — and one, in particular, stands out for shoppers who love to stack rewards and promotions.

Right now, you can save 10% on your Saks Fifth Avenue order when you sign up for emails. Even better? It stacks with multiple other offers.

If you have The Platinum Card® from American Express and haven’t yet used your first Saks Fifth Avenue credit of the year (cardholders get two up to $50 statement credits, one for the first half of the year and another for the second, enrollment required) now’s a great time to make sure it doesn’t expire.

Many online shopping portals are offering elevated cash back or points bonuses, according to

Rakuten, one of our favorite online shopping portals here at TPG, currently has a terrific bonus for new members — and a chance for existing members to take home some cash or American Express Membership Rewards points as well. If you join Rakuten (formerly Ebates) by May 13 and spend at least $30 within 90 days, you’ll take home a one-time bonus of $30.

Don’t forget to sign in to your Shoprunner account for free two-day shipping — another cool American Express cardholder perk when you enroll— and search for other sales and promotions that might apply. You can also usually use a free shipping code found on the Saks website if you prefer, or enter your email to receive a welcome offer (usually 10% off your first online purchase).

To save 10% for signing up for emails, just look for items that qualify. Eligible items will clearly indicate they qualify for the coupon code. The offer will arrive via email approximately 24 hours from submission and is valid on first-time email address submissions only.

Last year, I decided to take advantage of all these stackable deals and promotions to replace my carry-on suitcase which met an untimely end during a very embarrassing fall from a very great height on a recent trip.

I’ve been eyeing a Bric’s suitcase for a while, and even though it’s one of the designers excluded from most sales, the Platinum statement credit, bonus Membership Rewards points and cash back still made the suitcase much more affordable.

With this splurge, I got almost $65 in cash back from Rakuten. Factor in the $50 Platinum statement credit and the nearly 1,200 Membership Rewards points I earned from the Amex Offer (worth about $24), and I got approximately $140 in value on a bag I’ve wanted for a while. Sure, the upfront cost of the carry-on was still, well, a lot — but with the savings, credits and points, that luxury suitcase quickly became attainable. And, because you can get free shipping with the code FREESHIP (or complimentary two-day shipping with your ShopRunner benefit), you don’t have to worry about any other pesky fees.

I was in the market for a new suitcase with some very specific features, but shoppers who aren’t beholden to specific brands or products can easily get an even better deal.

Perhaps you want a new bag for your 2021 travels, like this classic zip backpack by Tory Burch for $268.

You’ll get $30 back when you go through Rakuten first. After the purchase hits your statement, you can expect another $50 from your Platinum statement credit. And, if eligible, you’ll save 10% for signing up for emails.

With savings like that, today is the perfect time to stock up on any travel items you may need in the future — or candles, home decor, shoes or beauty products. We won’t judge. And don’t forget, that $50 Saks statement credit won’t roll over to the second half of the year, so make sure to use it before it expires at the end of June.
