Wow there are loads of American Express sync promotions this month (and even more have been added today, I’ll work on a post about the others in a bit)!
A few days ago, I posted about an easy way to score $25 back on a $75 purchase or more at Amazon (yes, e-gift cards count), and now here’s another way to receive $25 back on a $100 purchase.
Until December 31, American Express is giving $25 back on a Land’s End purchase of $100 or more when you used your synced AmEx (I synced all 3 of my cards). If you’re like me, and have no immediate need to purchase goods from this retailer, an easy way to get “free money” through this deal is this:
- First off, shop through your favorite cash back or shopping portal. I chose to use Mr. Rebates (yes, that’s my referral link, and you’ll get $5 for joining) where I would earn 4% back on my purchase ($4). TopCashBack also gives 4% back on Land’s End purchases.
- Next purchase a physical giftcard of $100 from LandsEnd.com (e-gift cards will not work) using your synced American Express card(s) (one card per gift card/transaction).
- Within minutes, I received an email from AmEx thanking me for using my enrolled card.
Now you’re probably wondering what to do what these Land’s End gift cards when they arrive…
Well the good news is this – Land’s Ends gift cards are accepted at Kmart and Sears, so you can essentially buy other retailer gift cards at your local Sears or Kmart (Amazon, Visa, Restaurants, etc) using them.
In the end, you’re getting a $25 statement credit + $4 back in rebates and you’ll be able to purchase gift cards you’ll actually use – sounds like a good plan to me!
Has anyone else done this or plan on doing this?
