Back in June I wrote about an awesome Amex Offer where you can get a $15 statement credit with a $30+ purchase from Google Shopping Express. For those of you that have no idea what Google Shopping Express is, it is an awesome service, run by Google obviously, where they will hand deliver purchased items from participating stores. Some stores include Costco, Target, Babies R Us, Kohl’s, Staples, Walgreens, Barnes & Nobles, etc. The exact stores depend on your location. I’ve personally been using this service for 2 or so years and am obsessed with it! I started using it while living in NYC and am so happy that I am still able to use it in the suburb I currently live in outside of Boston. You can typically get same day or next day delivery.
With this service, you purchase your items directly through the Google Shopping Express site and you pay the exact price if you were to shop directly through that merchant. So you are never overpaying for an item which I love. If an item is on sale, then you are paying the sale price! Unfortunately though, you cannot purchase perishables and they only deliver to certain cities/locations – check delivery areas here.
Maximizing the Offer
While this is a targeted offer (no Twitter hashtag available), I have this offer available on most of my American Express credit cards. Make sure to use the multiple browser trick to register for the same offer on multiple cards to take advantage of the savings multiple times.
New members to Google Shopping Express will receive $15 off their first purchase. So if you are new to the site, it is best to make a purchase right at the $45 mark, so you get the $15 off, and then will still have a $30 transaction on your card. You can sign up here. You’ll then receive a $15 statement credit per the Amex Offer. This means that your $45 purchase will only cost you $15! If you are already a Google Shopping Express member, you’ll be able to get a 50% discount by making a $30 purchase. Then, assuming you have multiple Amex cards and were targeted on multiple accounts, make additional $30 purchases. You are not limited to the number of purchases you can make. You also are not charged any extra amount per purchase. Typically though, you need to purchase at least $15 from a particular store to not be charged shipping.
While there is a charge for this service (you can sign up for a yearly, monthly, or per order subscription), you can sign up for a FREE 90 day trial here. Just remember though, if you do not cancel your membership, you will continue to be charged on a monthly basis.
To take advantage of the $15 credit for new members and free trials, you can always have another member in your household sign up for the service with their email address.
Amongst mine and my husbands American Express cards, we will be saving $90 total with this offer! We shop at Costco quite often anyways, so this will not require us to spend any extra money to save money!
