This is an easy quarter to max out the 5% cash back. Costco and Sam’s Club sell their own gift cards as well third party gift cards that you can stock up on and get 5% off on future purchases. Sam’s Club gift cards are also good at Walmart so you could stock up and get 5% off all future Walmart purchases. Sam’s Club sells Visa gift cards that cost an extra $6 but you can use them anywhere that accepts Visa and for purchases where you don’t earn bonus points or cash back. Think outside the box – use a Visa gift card to pay for car and homeowners insurance, doctor and dentist appointments etc.
