Save $25 Off $100 At Costco.com With AMEX Link, Like, Love!

Update #2: Registration is now full.

———————————————————————

Update, Things I’ve learned:
-I can now confirm that I have received the credit multiple times using the same Facebook account by unsyncing and resyncing a new card.
-I just tested unsyncing and resyncing twice even before receiving the first refund. I did get the email confirmation for both purchases, so that appears to work as well, though I won’t know that for a fact until later this week.
-This will work on a Costco cash card.
-If you don’t have a Costco membership you can buy one when logged into a friend’s Costco.com account. You can use a Costco cash card to shop at Costco stores even if you do not have a membership.
-The credit will post within 4 days of the charge hitting your account.
-This will work on primary and secondary cards.
-This will work even if you don’t get a confirmation email from AMEX for spending on each of your cards.
Thanks again AMEX for 25% off everything at Costco, I’m stocking up on all my cards. It’ll be interesting to see how long several thousand dollars at Costco will last us…

Register for the Costco offer and spend $100 at Costco.com by 12/31 to get a $25 statement credit.

I’ve already registered and purchased a $100 Costco cash card.  I’ll update the post in a few days to let you know if it worked!

You’ve got to love the plethora of AMEX promotions like Small Business Saturday, Link, Like, Love, Foursquare, Twitter, Gift Chain, NYC Mix-n-Match Promo, and tons of other promotions that American Express runs all year long.  Plus they all work with additional cardholders as well, making the annual fees on their cards easily pay for themselves and then some.

Forgot which card is synced to your facebook account? You can unsync and resync cards here.

    I guess the below answers the question of in-store or online only:

    Program FAQs

    How it works:
    American Express takes what you “like” on Facebook and gives you offers you may love.

    Sync your Card to the program
    Select the offers you love by clicking “Get Offer” and following instructions

    Use your synced American Express Card in-store or online and receive a discount or have statement credits issued directly to your Card account depending on the offer.

    Hi All-

    Wanted to provide clarity on the syncing process with AMEX. It CANNOT be used with prepaid cards… only American Express ISSUED cards (lay off the Citi Cards, or other bank issued cards). If you have multiple cards, they will ALL sync up, regardless of your name. You cannot get multiple credits on the same card, obviously.

    Finally, and just an FYI, there is a CAP on enrollments for all of these sync programs. Once the CAP is reached you will likely be informed but just be aware that if the CAP on enrollment is reached but you aren’t notified and don’t get the credit, call AMEX.

    Sincerely,
    AMEX employee

    ReplyReply
  62. Jason Says:
    62

    @David R:

    That is also correct. One card per account… I wasn’t clear on that earlier. Also, the statement credit typically takes 3-5 days to post to your account and you may not receive a thank you / confirmation that your purchase went through and that you are receiving the statement credit. Wait 1 week, max, and if it doesn’t show up, call.

    You don’t need facebook to sign up for the costco deal, just go to your online amex account, then click on a card (if you have more than one), then select “online statement” under the Statements & Activity tab. you should then see a box underneath “Manage Your Tags” on the right hand side that shows all the discounts. though it looks like you can only get one of these per credit card (the AU’s won’t work, you get an error message)..

    I spoke to Costco today and got clarification about the 2% reward for Executive members and how it applies to Costco Cash cards. Executive members will not get the 2% reward for buying Costco Cash cards. Executive members who pay for items (except the items excluded here http://www.costco.com/executive-rewards.html ) using a Costco Cash card at the warehouse or web site earn the reward, as long as they provide their Executive membership number when checking out. Remember that anyone, even a non-member, can shop with a Costco Cash card, so it is important to provide your Executive membership number when checking out so the purchase can be credited towards your reward.

    Dan — if we registered for the promo before the cutoff, can we keep synching/unsynching cards now to use all my amex cards for this?
