3) Link you credit card to the Dosh App.


4) For Rakuten go to dining, and activate the restaurant you want to dine at. If you are new to Rakuten my referral link is $30 for your first purchase with the Rakuten portal. You can also convert Rakuten from cash back to Amex points


5) In the Yelp app check if there are any offers for you to check in at the restaurant

Use your credit card to pay. My favorite one to use is Amex Gold, since I get 4x at U.S. Supermarkets (up to $25,000) and 4x at Global Restaurants. Feel free to DM me or go to my link in bio if you are interested in Amex Gold. The sign up offer is 60,000-75,000 points if you spend $4,000 in 6 months. On  Amex Gold card ($250 annual fee) you also get $120 Uber/Uber Eats and $120 Seamless credits. These credits are split monthly for $10 Uber and $10 Seamless/Grubhub to use.

Best and Worst Redemptions for Hotel Stays. Please see video below for more details.

You do not need to spend a lot of money ????or points to stay at hotels! Here ⬇️ are my 2 favorite hotel chains that I would use in regards to stacking (for cash stays) or for transferring points! I also list 1 hotel chain I usually try to avoid, since it is not the best for cash stays or points!

Save ????this post, so you have this as a friendly reminder for top value hotels for both cash and points.

Cash ????Stays: Best Western
I consistently see Offers on Best Western for both Chase and Amex. Here’s ⬇️the Best Western stack

1) Portal such as @topcashbackusa for 5%

2) Amex Offers – If you spend $100+, you get $20 back that expires 9/20/21 (this was on Amex Gold)

3) Chase Offer – If you spend $100+ you can get 10% back ($29 max) this expires on 10/25/21 and was on Chase Sapphire Reserve for 3x travel

4) Hotel Promo – If you stayed recently at a Best Western (this ended on 9/6/21) but was a $20 gift card for each night (5 max)

5) Corporate/AAA/AARP membership rates

6) If you want to make this free with points, use Chase Pay Yourself Back at 1.5x on CSR until 9/30/21 and cash out eligible purchases

Points ????Stays: Hyatt
Hyatt award stays start at 5,000 points per night! And there is currently a promo to earn 1,000 American Airlines ✈️ bonus miles per qualifying stay at over 130 hotels in 30+ countries across Europe, Middle East, Africa and India. This promo is for qualifying stays until 12/19/21. You can transfer your Chase points to Hyatt to find availability.

Avoid: ????Hilton
There is an Amex 30% transfer bonus on Hilton that ends 10/31/21, but I usually do not recommend it. Hilton tends to be more expensive than Hyatt for points and is usually not the best value when comparing hotels. Hilton does have a bigger foot print than Hyatt and Best Western though, so it is good value if you are going somewhere like ????????Asia.

Is Stacking a Waste of Time and Effort?

Most of my items from Walgreens are either free or a money maker. Please see the video below for some of the items I got either discounted, for free, or as a money maker.

Fun fact: Most of the items in the ????video were either free or a money maker! And I also get ✈️ travel points! And it took me less than a minute to find these deals. Here’s ⬇️how.

SAVE ????this post as an example on how to stack at Walgreens! I literally went on the Instagram hashtag #walgreensdeals and filtered the posts based on most recent. Please note, some of these deals are no longer active from the video, but you can find the latest deals by researching the hashtag.

1) #walgreensdeals (sort by Most Recent)

2) Use Rakuten portal (for Amex points or cash back)

3) Pay with Chase Freedom Unlimited or Chase Freedom Flex (3x drugstores)

4) Depending on the IG post, I may have to clip coupons on the Walgreens app, upload my receipt to Fetch, Ibotta, Swagbucks, Coupons.com app, or Checkout51

Shopping ???? at Walgreens is very efficient for me because they have free store pickup (no minimum spending required), and it is right next to my gym. So,  I literally order my Walgreen stuff on the bus en route to the gym, ????️‍♀️workout, and then pickup my items from Walgreens after my workout! No time spent looking for items or waiting in line!

Since I’m getting reimbursed through a 3rd party app like Ibotta, I will still keep the Chase points and Amex points from Rakuten. Ibotta will reimburse me for my purchases, once I reach a certain ???? balance in the app through PayPal.

Amex has 17 airline ????and 3 hotel partners, and Chase has 11 airline and 3 hotel partners to transfer your points to travel for free. Points are a big part of my travel budget. Friendly reminder you have until 9/30/21 to use the Chase Pay Yourself back feature to offset your travel costs with dining purchases.

Do you like this money and productivity hack for saving ????money on things at Walgreens? If so, feel free to share this post with a friend! Also let me know if you need any referrals to any of these apps and credit cards!

And if you do not like this tip, no worries! It gives more room for people like me to buy items in stock, save ???? money, and earn more travel points. I hope you enjoy spending more money keeping your ????teeth clean!
