The Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales are here and with new deals appearing every day this can be a great time of year to save big. The key thing to making sure that you’re maximizing your savings is to keep in mind that as well as the discounts being offered by retailers and the travel industry, there are a number of limited-time promotions being offered by various credit cards which should not be missed. Using the right credit card in these sales can be the difference between a good deal and a great deal.

Hopefully, everyone reading this post knows the standard bonus categories that their credit cards offer so I’m not going to go over that old ground. Instead, what you’ll find here is a list of some of the limited-time spending offers that Amex, Chase, and Citi are currently offering that could influence the choice of card you use when it comes time to pay.

Amazon sells just about everything nowadays and it’s probably going to be the one retailer that most people reading this post will use at some point over the coming days.

Offers For Spending At Target

UPDATE: Some or All of the offer(s) mentioned in this post have now expired

Target is a retailer that can offer some very good deals at this time of year but it’s also a retailer that often gets excluded from a lot of the offers that we see. Right now I know of just one good credit card offer for spending at Target but as that’s one more offer than I recall seeing in the past, it’s better than nothing!

Amex Marriott Bonvoy co-branded cards are offering 6 bonus points/dollar at Target [Targeted] (more details)


Offers For Spending At Walmart

UPDATE: Some or All of the offer(s) mentioned in this post have now expired

As is the case with Target, Walmart often gets excluded from the credit card offers that we see (e.g. you probably won’t earn a grocery bonus when you do your weekly shop at Walmart) but, at the time of writing, there are at least three deals you should know about.

Ok, yes, this isn’t really a Black Friday/Cyber Monday category but as a lot of people will be taking time off work in the coming days, the amount of spending being made at restaurants and with food delivery services will be going up. With that in mind, here are some of the deals you should keep in mind when choosing the card you pay with.

The Ritz-Carlton Credit Card’s $300 travel credit can be used to offset spending at restaurants (more info)


Spending At Gas Stations

UPDATE: Some or All of the offer(s) mentioned in this post have now expired

This is another category that may seem an odd choice to include on a list of Black Friday/Cyber Monday offers but, with most gas stations now selling gift cards and with a lot of people planning to hit the roads in the coming days, it’s worth remembering that there are at deals available that will boost your savings.

Citi’s ThankYou Cards are offering 5 points/dollar, up to 2,500 points, on eligible purchases made at gas stations [Targeted] (more info)

Also, don’t forget that the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant Credit Card’s $300 travel credit can be used to offset Marriott gift card purchases.


Bottom Line

This isn’t meant to be an exhaustive list of all the available offers but it should be a reminder that the credit card you would normally use for spending at any given retailer may not be the best credit card to use right now. Putting a little bit of thought into which card you use as you enjoy the spending season could significantly improve your savings.

  1. Much of this is targeted. For example I have a Citi AA card that is offering me 3x at grocery and drug stores. Some of my Chase cards offer the 5x at Amazon you mention but also include grocery stores. I really think that unless you have a special need for hotel points that airline miles are more valuable overall for these if you have to choose between cards. For example I don’t plan to spend $20,000 at amazon in the next month to take advantage of every card on this.
