Make Even More Money from the Sam’s Club Amex Offer

Earlier today I wrote a post reminding everyone that the Sam’s Club Amex Offer is ending today! While this is a phenomenal offer to take advantage of and a way to literally make free money, there are a few other ways to maximize the deal as well which I want you to all be aware of!

1st Way to Maximize

The online shopping portal TopCashBack is offering 6% cash back for all purchases made at Sam’s Club! This is the highest cash back offer I’ve seen, so I’d recommend them to maximize your money! The terms do state that gift cards purchases are not eligible for cash back, so I am not sure if this excludes Mastercard gift cards and other merchant gift cards as well. Although you might as well try and see if the cash back comes through.

2nd Way to Maximize

Register your American Express credit cards to your Drop account. Drop is an app where you link your credit/debit card and then earn points at many popular merchants for every dollar spent with that linked card. After you earn “Drop” points, you can redeem them for gift cards at Starbucks, AMC, iTunes, Sephora, Best Buy, Amazon, Old Navy, Dunkin Donuts, etc.

Currently, drop is offering 30 points for every $1 spent with Sam’s Club online. So while this is not a huge money maker, it is something! Let’s say you spend $150 with Sam’s Club, that will earn you 4,500 “Drop” points. While this is only worth $4.50 towards a gift card redemption, you might as well earn some free money (gift cards) for purchases you were going to make anyways.

  1. The Sam’s Club purchases I made (for SC gift cards) took two days to process and actually charge the card, so YMMV .. today may be too late to order.

    • Actually, I just checked, and my purchases from 1/29 – which shipped yesterday – still are listed as Pending by Amex.
