Twitter just launched a new promotion where you can synch your AMEX card and receive some decent credit statements for your everyday spending! I am personally loving American Express right now (see prior blog post) as I’ve received a boatload of statement credits (close to $1,000!) with them recently and this is just one more opportunity to save some money!

Here is how it works:

  1. Sync any American Express card with Twitter – sign in with twitter and sync here
    • You will receive an email immediately letting you know that your card has been synced
  2. Tweet the special offer using the #hashtags to link to your Amex card – this twitter page here will give you a list of all the offers and hash tags
    • For example, to synch the McDonalds promotion, you must tweet “#AmexMcDonalds, get $5 back 1x on next $5+ in store purch w/synced Amex Card!” This will then link the McDonalds promotion with your account. YOU MUST INCLUDE THE # TAG
    • After registering and sending a tweet for each offer, you will receive the following notification (per offer) in your Twitter account. Literally, all you have to do is copy and paste the #tag offer that is given on the American Express twitter account page and you should be enrolled – should take no more than 2 minutes!
    • If you do not receive this immediate confirmation, try again as something went wrong. YOU MUST TWEET FOR ALL OFFERS DISPLAYED TO RECEIVE THE RESPECTIVE STATEMENT CREDIT.
  3. Receive a statement credit once you meet the terms of of the offer with your synced card – you will receive an email first letting you know that you have been registered for this promotion

Travel deals through this promotion:

  • Virgin America: 10% back on main cabin ticket. This can be combined with the 20% coupon codes that have been floating around (see prior blog post) which can ultimately give you 28% off a Virgin America ticket!
    • To link this promotion, you must tweet “#AmexVirginAmer for 10% back on main cabin tix w/synced Amex Card! (1x stmnt credit, QtyLtd, Exp 3/31)”

Currently, there are many other non-travel deals with this promotion, including: 1-800-Flowers, McDonalds, H&M, Gulf, Centry 21, Whole Foods, Dell, Seamless Web, FedEx, Cheesecake Factory, Sports Authority, Best Buy

Similar to the Amex “Link, Like, Love” promotion, I can foresee more merchants being added as well – hope they are some good ones! Once again – way to go social media and amex! Let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues.

Thanks Mr. Deals for sending me this!

Reminder: Today is the last day to enter the Deals & Martinis contest for a chance to win a 10% off American Airlines coupon code (prior blog post outlining the details).

    this is amazing! going to try the seamless one this week. thanks!

  • dealswelike said,

    @Lauren – I will definitely be utilizing the Seamless one myself as well!

  • Lauren said,

    Also I saw your tweet about it and I think you mistakenly said it was $5 back when really it’s $10 :)

  • Kevin Williams said,

    I could not get the twitter sync link to work – found this one that did:

  • dealswelike said,

    @Kevin – Thanks for pointing this out. I was trying to link the one page further, which clearly won’t allow. Thanks again!

  • dealswelike said,

    @Lauren – you are so right, thanks!

  • Not Working said,

    Followed these instructions exactly for 5 or 6 of the offers and got no confirmation. Can someone reply with the exact tweet I should send to, for example, Best Buy?

  • Manny said,

    i tweeted this – @americanexpress #AmexMcDonalds the confirmation doesn’t post on your profile page ….. you have to click @connect at the top of the page. it will show up under mentions

  • dealswelike said,

    @Manny – That is correct.

  • Divyesh said,

    @Manny – thanks for the clarification!
