Yes in my experience
Thanks.  My expiring points yesterday were available at least until 10pm when I last checked, so 11:59pm EDT sounds right. 

Anyone know what this week’s Stop and Shop offer is?

Thank you. I presume that’s Eastern time.

When Fuel Rewards are expiring on a given day, what time of day do they expire/disappear?

Best I can tell, there are no kosher dining options downtown. Correct?

AA Citi AAdvantage Executive.
Shpiel: Just got my statement with my annual membership fee posted. Am re-evaluating all my credit card costs and usage and, given that I have several cards from other companies, am considering costs and benefits of keeping this card open. Want to know if there are any offers available to me on this account? 
First agent looked, said no, asked if I'm considering closing the account, said yes, she said need to transfer you to retention specialist.  Maria then asked me the same, and I told her I had gotten offers to motivate my retnention in the past and would like to know if offers exist at present.
She read the first one: 7 months, spend $1,500 per month, get $50 statement credit per month.
I asked if there are any other offers, and she said there are no other offers related to the annual fee. "Would you like to me see if there are any other offers available to you?"  I said no, I would rather not know if there is any way to save money.  (j/k).
She then read me the second offer:
"It's not an offer specific to the annual fee." Spend $5,000 in 3 months and get 15,000 AA miles.
I asked if the two offers are mutually exclusive, or if I could have them both. (Greedy much?)
She said only one or the other, so I took the latter. :)
First offer: Spend $10,500 over 7 months, get back $350.
Second offer: Spend $5,000 over 3 months, get back 15,000 AA, which to me are worth at least $225, maybe more.

I quoted above the 2018 offer.
This year's offer is not nearly so lucrative:
One offer only: Spend $3,000 per month * 3 months. Get a single $100 statement credit.
I decided to hold off on the offer for now.  Maybe it will change before the statement due date of 9/1?

It has the typical language that leaves you guessing. First it says: "Buy $100 in these gift cards get $15 off your next order!" followed by pictures of the 11 aforementioned cards. There is no indication there that any other gift cards might be included. But then the fine print says, "Stop & Shop gift cards, MasterCard gift card & Visa gift card products do not apply for this promotion." Well why would I think that they do apply for this promotion if they're not among the pictured cards? Unless you didn't really mean these literally, in which case American Express, Amazon, Uber, Macy's, etc. may be included too.
Nice analysis.
We obviously need empirical data.

$15 coupon for $100 gift card spend is coming back 8/9-8/22

Coupon will expire 8/27

The only cards pictured are, ITunes, Starbucks, Dominos, Happy, B& N, Xbox, Home Depot, BB&B, Saks, Kohl’s, Tj-max.
Thanks for posting.
Here’s hoping that Amazon is included again.

Happy Hour, starting 2PM tomorrow, 8/8.
Starbucks BOGO cold coffee or cold espresso, size grande or larger.

Hope so. Didn’t mean to offend.
Although I do realize that things are not always as they appear!

Nope, it was the AC glitch. Thanks for assuming my gender @zow
Didn’t we talk in the lounge in YYZ and again in TLV?
I met your in-laws!

YYZ-DXB with my DD
YYZ-PEK with my DW
YYZ-TLV with DW + 2 DD (+ @as2 and his mishpacha)
All within a 10-week span. Didn’t pay more than $229 for any single roundtrip flight. 
Thank you, AC.

I know I missed yesterday’s deal, but am I correct that you could have bought 10 x $50 Happy GC, earned 10 x $10 grocery coupons, and also earned 4,000 gas points? Sounds like a great deal!
Spend $500 on Happy.
Get $100 in grocery and $60 in gas.

Thank you for sharing your trip report! Everything sounded amazing, do you think Anton Valley would be doable for kids 11,9,6 and 4?
You are very welcome!
Definitely fine for family like that.
Maybe no ziplining, or at least not the little one(s).
Can do very easy “hiking” and also can do waterfalls.
Maybe not horseback riding for the little ones either.
You should ask @denverite, as her children are younger than ours.
