I absolutely love it when American Express runs these promos. Last year, I was able to buy so many things from food, wines, groceries, etc for FREE! The thing that makes it even better is the fact I churn credit cards so much that I end up with several AMEX cards to take advantage of these promos!
So what’s the current promo?
Log into your twitter account (if you don’t have one, just make a new one). Tweet #AmexBestBuy10 for $10 statement credit when you spend $10 or more at Bestbuy. #AmexWholefoods to receive $20 back when you spend $75 or more at Whole Foods. #AmexAustin10 to receive $10 when you spend $50 or more at Whole Foods (must purchase from Austin, TX. See below how to take advantage of this). #AmexMcDonalds to receive $5 when you spend $5 or more at McDonald’s.
Also, if you like AMEX’s Link, Like and Love and add Whole Foods, you get $10 with any first purchase at Whole Foods.
All of these are sync’d with only 1 AMEX credit card PER facebook/twitter account and it’s only for the 1st purchase.
So now I will explain how to get the free McDonald’s and Bestbuy giftcard. It’s pretty obvious right? Just go to their store and spend the minimum requirement. $5 for McD and $10 for Bestbuy. Just get giftcards if you want. I’m going to buy $5 giftcard at McD and $10 itunes giftcard at Bestbuy. I might even see if I can get a $40 amazon giftcard at Bestbuy and have the cashier split the bill to 4 different AMEX cards that I sync’d with 4 different facebook/twitter accounts.
Next up, Whole Foods. Go to a Whole Foods store, buy a $75 giftcard. That will trigger your statement credit of $30. Come home, go to Whole Food’s website and change the local store to AUSTIN, TX. Go to the giftcard section on their website and “RELOAD” your giftcard and add $5 to it. This will trigger your last $10 statement credit. That’s it! Now you spent only $40 for a $80 Whole Foods giftcard!
I’m doing this with 4 of my AMEX credit cards. At the end I should have $20 worth of McD giftcards and $40 worth of any giftcards at Bestbuy all for FREE! And for Whole Foods, I will have spent $160 for $320 worth of giftcards!
Please comment or email me if you need help or just love this promo! 🙂
