Get yourself Targeted
What I found amazing about this offer is that I didn’t get targeted for this, not via email nor eBay messages. And yet I was able to add the offer to my account using the Direct Link shown above (which I found on Slickdeals), and I successfully earned the 8% back on my purchases today.
I don’t recall this being the case in the past that it’s possible to get yourself targeted, although I usually do get the emails, so I’m not entirely positive. We’ll have to keep this in mind for the future to see if we can always get ourselves targeted.
[Update: Looks like the emails were just delayed today, so it probably won’t work to get yourself targeted if the future.]
What to Buy
If you got the offer, there are a bunch of gift card deals that we wrote about yesterday which become a lot more attractive. Most are still around; only the Southwest sold out already, and the Cabela’s and CVS are almost gone as well.

I’m excited about being able to get myself targeted for this Bucks offer, let’s hope that will work for future offers as well. 8% isn’t the best that it gets, but the 10% offers are few and far between, and we also have a good 2.5% portal rate today and some nice gift card deals as well. Overall a great deal.
