One of the current Amex Sync offers going on right now is that you can earn $25 back on a $50 purchase or more at Smart and Final. The great thing is you can register for this via Twitter, so all Amex cardholders should be eligible, and each card you register is good for 3 different times for this offer.
I quickly registered for this offer on Twitter, and then was off to Smart and Final. The great thing is that Smart and Final sells many different merchant gift cards including Amex and Visa and these do count toward this offer.
Here’s what I decided to buy:
- 4 $50 American Express Gift Cards ($54.95* 4 = $219.80)
- 2 $25 Amazon Gift Cards ($25*2 = $50)
- 1 $50 Nordstrom Giftcard ($50)
My total in spending was $319.80 in giftcards, however I received 6 $25 statement credits, bringing my net cost down to $169.80, giving me an overall savings of $150, since I used two cards and maxed them out.
After each swipe, I received an email from American Express confirming that I would be receiving the statement credit.
One word of caution is that you must purchase each giftcard separately, so if you’re looking to max out, you have to buy $50, then pay for it, then have the cashier ring up the next giftcard and pay for it and so on.
If you live near a Smart and Final, this is a great offer that I would recommend taking advantage of.
