* Note that the options have changed after I write this.
I just got a "Mystery Choice" reward at SaveUp using my rewards stamps. In fact I did it twice and got the same 4 choices. Currently the reward options are :
- $50 restaurant.com eGift card when you make a purchase at Hotwire
- 40% off basic custom t-shirt from vistaprint
- $5 Amazon.com egift card for a $1 in store purchase at Peet's Coffee & Tea
- $10 off at Shoebuy.com
I don't consider #1 much of a deal as it requires buying via Hotwire which isn't something most of us are doing much. Plus restaurant.com gift cards are easy to get for cheap via promotions.
40% off is the same sale that vistaprint has right now using a promo code so thats nothing special. Though that promo seems to expire today, they also have 25% off for t-shirts that lasts longer and sales and promotions on vistaprint are the norm.
The last 2 options are OK.
$5 Amazon card for buying a cup of coffee is a good deal. You do have to synch with a Visa and use your visa for the purchase it seems.
$10 off at Shoebuy.com is OK too. They have reasonable prices. But it seems you have to go through their link to use the $10 and it looks like you can't stack promo codes. Shoebuy.com has a 25% off promo code with free shipping and Ebates has 16% cashback at Shoebuy so I am pretty sure you can usually beat the straight $10 off with other offers.
Choice #3 seems to be the winner but is only useful if you'd make a purchase at Peet's & Amazon, but thats not hard to do. I'd consider $5 at Amazon worth cash (for my uses) and basically amounts to a free coffee at Peet's.
edit : May 14th, I checked again the next day and they had the same set of 4 rewards, so it seems the rewards do not change often if at all.
*second edit : May 18th. I redeemed a mystery reward again today and found that the reward options had changed. The 1st and 4th options changed to 20% off at Proflowers and 100 free business cards at Vistaprint. The 2nd and 3rd options remained the same.
May 27: I checked again and the rewards were the same as the 18th.
Standard Ebates blurb:To get cash back from Ebates you need to be signed up with Ebates. Then simply go to Ebates to get the referral to the store before you do your shopping. I also get a referral bonus if you use my links to sign up with Ebates.
