Today I received a promotion from American Express. During the holidays, they are offering incentives to shop online at select stores for the opportunity to receive a free gift from American Express. The promotion is available for up to 10 gifts and include gifts from $2 to $500. Gifts may be statements credits, gift cards, etc. Here is how it works…
1. Register any eligble AMEX card.
2. Spend $25 or more at participating online stores up until 12/21/11.
3. You will receive an email with your free gift from AMEX.
I’m not going to go out of my way to purchase anything to receive a gift from AMEX, but since the holidays are in season, there is a chance I buy from one of the participants anyways. Only the first 250k applicants that submit their card are eligible, so you might as well register your card just in case. Particpating retailers include:
- American Eagle Outfitters
- Bed Bath & Beyond
- Blue Nile
- Neiman Marcus
- Pottery Barn
- Rue La La
If you’re looking for holiday gift ideas, consider buying gift cards frrom one of the retailers above in increments of $25. This would be the best way to max out your gifts. Check it out here…
