In recent years, Kim, Lucas and I have enjoyed staying at places listed on Airbnb from time to time. Find out about our (first) awesome experience in Singapore here.
The main reasons we like using the site are reasonable prices for rooms in good locations as well as getting a closer look at the where people live and more interaction with locals at the destinations.
Last November there was a deal with Amex Offers for $50 off $100 with Airbnb.
With the Amex Offer, I bought $400 in gift cards for only $200! I used some of the credits to book some stays during our trip to Cuba over winter break 2015/16.
I still have a good amount of credit left on my account but I just came across a way to earn 5X miles or points with Airbnb when my credits run out.
Like many of you, I head over to Staples with my Chase Ink card to buy gift cards to earn 5X points. (The Chase Ink card earns 5X points at office supply stores for those of you unfamiliar with the card.)
I typically purchase Amazon, Shell and Whole Foods gift cards at Staples.
On a recent visit, I came across Airbnb gift cards for sale!
If you’re planning to book a stay and you have an Ink card, you might as well head over to Staples to buy some gift cards to pay for your bookings! Why not get rewarded 5X if you can!
Have you ever stayed with Airbnb? If so did you have a positive experience?
