    This was a wonderful way to bulk up balances at a very reduced rate last year.

    I am excited to see it return and hope it is similar in value.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'm looking forward to the offerings - it was a mad early morning race last year when trying to buy the ones I wanted, but fun, and worth the one I got.

    Nothing to see here. Move along. These are not the deals you are looking for. ;)

    For those who recently got the C1 Venture card (100k match), I used my C1 card last year and it was coded as "travel-other" :)

    Of course, that was last year. There's no guarantee they'll do the same this year, but at least it's something to look into!

    I'm hoping to see SPG points again this year -- missed getting them last year and would like another shot.

    I think that the discount offer on Discover America was that weekend event and 100K Best Western Rewards points for $2500. So it was a substantial discount off of the "regular" price. Still, it appeared that this offer went unsold for some mysterious reason.
