For those of you that like taking advantage of the free money with Amex Offers, I have a great new offer for you! A few days ago, Google Express popped up (although targeted) where you can receive a $15 statement credit with a $30 or more purchase. This means a 50% discount on a single order! Out of my 5 cards, I was targeted on two of them and fully plan on taking advantage of this free money. Make sure to use the multiple browser trick to register for the same offer on multiple cards. If you have no idea what Google Express is, read below.
What is Google Express?
Google Express 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, Kohls, Staples, Walgreens, Barnes & Nobles, etc. The exact stores depend on your location. I’ve personally been using Google Express 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. While living in NYC, I was able to place an order and typically receive the purchased items within a few hours. It came in very handy for my Costco and Target shopping purchases!
With this service, you purchase your items directly through the Google 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 this Offer
New members can also receive $15 off their first purchase and this CAN be combined with the Amex Offer. So if you make a $45 purchase, for example, you’ll really only be paying $15! You just need to make sure the final purchase price is $30 so it will trigger the statement credit which you’ll probably receive within a few days of your purchase. 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 receive free delivery, most stores require a $15 minimum purchase, which is easy to do.
