If you follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed that in the middle of the night I tweeted out another great Amex Sync offer for Staples. Through November 9, 2014, if you spend $100 at Staples with your synced American Express credit card, you will get a $20 statement credit. This is valid for in-store only purchases, NOT online. But the great thing is that this is available to EVERYONE since it is available via Twitter! And if you have multiple Amex cards you can sync them all!

Staples Amex Sync

To sync your Amex card to this promotion:

  • 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. This is the easiest way to sync multiple cards – here are detailed instructions on how to sync with TwitterTweet #AmexStaples
  • or, Sign into your account and go to the “Amex Offers For You” tab. Find the Staples offer and make sure to select the “Save Offer” button

Taking advantage of this offer:

  • Purchase merchant gift cards at Staples stores. Staples sells so many gift cards to other merchants. Some examples include iTunes, Bed Bath & Beyond, Lowe’s, Southwest, Marriott, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Panera, etc. There are so many gift card options which is great!!
  • Purchase a Visa or Mastercard gift card. You can purchase a $100 Visa or Mastercard gift card at many Staples stores. They do come with a $5.95 fee, but since you’ll get the $20 statement credit you are still making money – $14.05 to be exact. You can then use this gift card anywhere Visa or Mastercard is accepted. Or if you are looking for holiday gifts for someone! If you use an American Express card that gets you 5x points at office supply stores (i.e., Amex Simply Cash card), this will then earn you additional points.
  • Purchase a free after rebate item. Many times Staples sells many items that ultimately end up being free after you submit a rebate for the exact same amount you paid. American Express just sees the amount you pay for the item on your synced card and doesn’t care/know if you are getting a check back for the purchased amount. So that is one way to potentially get $20 essentially free. I’ll write more about this option when a good Free After Rebate (FAR) item presents itself.

  1. This offer was already full when I logged in a little after 8AM Pacific Time. If AMEX wants to be fair, they should announce and activate these offers later in the day so that cardholders in ALL parts of the U.S. have a fair chance. A guy in New York with, say, six cards enrolled just screwed five of us out here whp only have a single AMEX.
