Time to squeeze in a back-to-back Free Money Friday deal! This offer ends September 30 (or until points run out), so you’ll have to act quickly!
Right now, you can get 150 MyPoints per dollar spent on OpenSky. You can spend up to $500 and get 75,000 free MyPoints, which you can redeem for $500+ in gift cards. After converting the points back to gift cards, you end up with $500 in free stuff.

More on MyPoints/OpenSky Offer
Terms and Conditions. The last line in the terms and conditions states that MyPoints and OpenSky points are different. Throwing in that line also makes this deal very confusing. If you are worried, you might want to call and confirm with MyPoints first. After reading a very long thread on Slickdeals about the offer, it looks like callers are getting confirmation on the deal.
Purchase Protection. Just to be on the safe side, since the deal has the confusing wording, I’ll be making my purchases using a credit card with purchase protection. That way if they choose not to honor this deal, we can return the purchases and get our money back. When a deal seems too good to be true, and it sounds like we’re taking our chances… I put my purchases on an American Express card with purchase protection!
Redemption Options. The gift cards you can redeem the points for include Amazon.com ($500 for 75,000 points), travel (more than $500 for the points) and Paypal cash (less than $500).
Update: It looks like the deal is now over.
