UPDATE: From reader comments this is a targeted promotion, however, some readers have emailed me saying they were able to call Amex and have the representative manually add the promotion to their card. I personally had this offer show up for my Starwood Amex card.
By syncing your American Express card, you can get a $20 statement credit with a $79+ purchase at Walmart.com. Currently you can register for this promotion by going to your American Express account and registering for this promotion via the “Offers for You” tab. Currently, there is no hashtag to register through Twitter.
This is a one-time statement credit and is valid through December 31, 2013. Purchasing a $79 gift card will trigger the statement credit (for Walmart gift cards you do not need to purchase in a certain increment amount, you are actually able to purchase a $79 gift card!). There are also a slew of other store’s gift cards for sale on Walmart.com so if you do not frequently shop at Walmart, you can still take part in this deal for another retailer. They also sell Visa and MasterCard gift cards, although those do come with a $3.95 fee for a $50 card – while I hate the fees, this still comes out to be a money maker if you’d prefer the straight cash!
If you read this blog often, you know that I absolutely love the American Express Sync concept and have received a bunch of statement credits due to making purchases with a registered Amex credit card. Remember, these promotions are only valuable to those with an American Express card (non-Corporate or prepaid cards) and is only a one-time statement credit. If you have multiple Amex cards, you will need to sync them to different accounts.
