Came across Bondrewards.com today. Never heard about it before, but googled a search and found a Time article about them so figure they're okay. Lego Shop at Home is listed for a 3% rate. Sure, 3% isn't all that much, but if you're going to buy something anyway . . . and especially this month with the free shipping deal, it seems a nice thing. Only problem is the risk that UPS uses your boxes to sit on during a lunch break.
So what are the best ways to maximize those little returns for Lego purchases? Bondrewards (3%) + a Rewards Program CC is one for buying from [email protected]
Bing.com(ranges, but currently low at 8%) + Ebay Bucks (2%) + Rewards Program CC is another for buying on Ebay.
Any option using a CC is with the thought of not carrying a balance, of course.
Amazon offers a CC with up to 6pts per $1 spent during the first 3 months. That can really add up fast toward a vacation round trip airline ticket, and free shipping and no sales tax! But you don't get any other reward (
The Lego store rewards program is nice, but its frustrating to save around 7% in the store once you get your $30 card, but then pay 9% sales tax where I live. Kind of sad when Amazon is cheaper and delivered right to my door.
I miss the Live.com discount when it was as high as 30%. Now that it's Bing, I've only seen it as high as 15% and it's sitting around half that atm.
I never used Big Crumbs, but are there any other options that you know of? Or any other recommendations on how to wind up paying less in the end for Lego?
Edited to add: I forgot about the Lego VIP Program, any details on what and when?
