I use to get like the 4 off 20 and 6 off 30 all the time but don't anymore do u have any tips on how to receive those?

Sarah-Sometimes it's hard to tell why one gets them sometimes and not sometimes. One thing I have heard is take a break for a month or two from deal shopping and don't use the card, then start again, it kind of "resets" it.
