American Express just announced another syncing promotion where if you spend $250 at Best Buy you will receive a $25 statement credit. They’ve run this promotion a few times in the past and have been able to maximize by purchasing gift cards. This promotion is valid for online or in-store purchases and expires September 2, 2014. Keep in mind though, that if you place an order online and it doesn’t ship right away, the billing to your credit card might be delayed which means it will not trigger the statement credit (must hit your credit card by 9/2/14).
Like all other Amex sync promotions, this is only valid for those with an American Express credit card. You then must register for this promotion via Twitter (the twitter hashtag is #AmexBestBuy). I currently do not see this available via AmericanExpress.com, but having syncing through Twitter is even better because you can then sync all your American Express credit cards and take advantage multiple times! My assumption is enrollment will be maxed out soon, so make sure to sync now!
To enroll in this offer:
- Sync your American Express credit card to Twitter (you can do that here). If you are not sure which card is currently synced with your account, you can unsync and then re-sync.
- Tweet #AmexBestBuy
How to fully maximize:
If you have no big ticket items to purchase at Best Buy, you can still fully take advantage of this offer and come out ahead! The best part about Best Buy is that they sell other merchant gift cards for purchase. S you can purchase a $250 gift card (or increments that add up to this amount) and that will trigger the $25 statement credit. My local Best Buy does not carry American Express and Visa gift cards, but I know there are some locations that do. They do, however, sell Amazon.com and iTunes gift cards. For Amazon.com gift cards you’d have to purchase the Kindle gift cards as they actually work on Amazon.com purchase and is not limited to books. Or you can purchase a Best Buy gift card to use at a future time.
While this offer is valid for purchases online or in store, it specifically states eGift Cards are excluded. Also, if you make the purchase online, use one of the online shopping portals to increase your savings!
