While this was an unfortunate week with what took place with the Boston Marathon bombings, I still want to recap the deals and promotions that still took place over the past 7 days. I also wanted to remind you that if you are looking to donate, you can do so to The One Fund Boston. Plink.com has recently added them as a redemption partner and you can easily earn $10 free with their current promotion – so this is a great way to donate (for free) and Plink will match all contributions. You can learn more about the donation opportunity here and the promotion to earn $10 in free points here.
