Jillian Michaels, 35% cash back

Spa Week, 5% cash back
You still have two weeks to take advantage of Spa Week’s 10% off Valentine’s Day offer, but if you want cash in on their 10% off New Year’s Sale, you’ll have to get your gift card before midnight Thursday, Jan. 31. Even if you miss these deals, though, you should check out the site’s discounts. Treatments that usually cost up to $200 are just $50 if you buy them from the site.
Road Runner Sports, 8% cash back
Solitary running is fine, although it can get a bit boring. For excitement and camaraderie, what you need is a game of tennis or pick-up basketball. Road Runner has all the right shoes, apparel and equipment, and when you join the VIP club, you’ll get 20% off, plus free shipping.
Travelocity, up to 4% cash back
There’s no time better than right now to book travel for Valentine’s Day, spring break, Mardi Gras and other upcoming festivities. And if you do it quickly, you can save $60 on your vacation package — including airfare, hotel and car rental.
GameStop, up to 5% cash back
You’re never too old for video games. Just ask anyone who’s ever spent more than an hour at a time trying to beat the computer at “Hearts.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that. We all need relax, and playing a video game is a lot less damaging than downing a bottle of Jack.
