AmEx Bluebird Card Now Saves $$$ on Hotels + Food!

Posted in On the Ground

Since the Great CVS UnVanilla-ing of 2014, my Bluebird card has sat mostly dormant. Without the ability to generate my manufactured credit card spend through Vanilla Reloads at CVS, the card didn’t hold much value for me anymore. That all may be about to change…

I just got an email from American Express that makes the Bluebird card useful even without functioning as my go-to depository for Vanilla Reloads. From now until Halloween (10/31/14), you can save 10% on all La Quinta stays by using promo code AMX10 at or call to book at 1-800-753-3757. I’m not much of a frequent La Quinta guest, but 10% off is good enough for lunch money most places, so I may check out a La Quinta before the promotion is over.

Perhaps even more useful, Denny’s is offering 15% off for using your Bluebird card in conjunction with this coupon. Just print out the coupon between now and September 30th and you’ll be Grand Slamming in Discount City.

All of a sudden, my Bluebird card seems useful again. Time to start flying (and dining…)!
