The trick is with many of these is to be creative. I posted yesterday about the Marriott offer and people have already confirmed that buying gift cards from a Marriott hotel works for the $50 off $200 credit. Now they have gift cards that will work at any Marriott brand worldwide.
Best Buy stores sell many types of gift cards as well, including for Amazon (the Kindle cards work for everything sold by Amazon) and Visa gift cards. Gift cards selection varies by store.
Current AMEX Twitter offers:
Signup for Twitter and you can save money with AMEX.
All you have to do is sync your American Express card with your twitter account to save money at rotating stores.
Then tweet the codes listed below to enroll, so for example just write #AmexSony and then click tweet. Then wait a minute and you should have a message in your notifications bar that you have successfully enrolled along with the offer terms.
In the image below you can see where to write the tweet and where to check for the confirmation.
You can register all of your primary and secondary AMEX cards on Twitter, it just entails either: Unsyncing and resyncing cards via this link or making a Twitter account for each card. If you do unsync and resync multiple cards on the same Twitter account you must change the tweet slightly each time like:
And so on.
When resyncing there is no need to fill out your billing address, just fill out the first half of the form with your name, email, and your credit card number. You can skip the optional fields asking for your billing address, card expiration, and the 4 digit code. You can use the same email address for all of your cards.
Forgot which card you registered? Just unsync and resync.

Online account offers:
There are a couple offers that I found in my account that I couldn’t find a working Twitter code for. Offers in your account will vary by card, so check all of your cards.
To see if you have this offer in your account just login to your AMEX account, click on any of your cards to go the activity page, click on “AMEX Offers For You,” and save the offer to your account. Offers are also available on the AMEX iPhone app.
If you also have multiple cards with the offer don’t rush to save the offer to your account! Open up the Offers page for each card in a separate tab in the same browser. Then go between the tabs to save the offer to each of your targeted cards. Otherwise once you save the offer to one card it disappears from your other cards.
You can also register your secondary cards for their own AMEX login and register each of those cards as well. Sometimes secondary cards registered on their own account will have different offers than the primary card.
Sample targeted offers (be sure to check all of your cards!)
-Save $15 off $100 at Macys.com or in store through 11/30.
-Save $100 off $500 on Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts through 03/31/15.
-Save $10 off $50 at Godiva.com on through 12/31
-Save $10 off $50 at JCPenney on through 12/31
Don’t have an offer in your account? You can chat with AMEX and ask them to honor the deal for you as well, YMMV!
