Just yesterday I was talking about using Amex Offers to save money on your holiday travel and shopping purchases. Now, there’s a new opportunity to save on a wider variety of merchants. Many readers have been targeted to receive a $25 statement credit after spending $200 at Newegg, an online electronics retailer. (HT to Deals We Like)
However, Newegg also sells gift cards — there’s an entire airline and travel gift card section on their site! Merchants include Hyatt, American Airlines, Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, and others.
You could buy one or more of these gift cards for a total of $200, pay $175 after adjusting for the statement credit, and essentially save 12.5%. If you have more than one American Express card that was targeted, you can repeat the process with each card. Just remember to log into your Amex card and add the offer first.
