Update: If you get a blank screen on NewEgg when checking out with AMEX, try logging into a NewEgg account and selecting AMEX Express Checkout as the payment method only after logging in.
SBS is that magical day of the year when AMEX makes our wishes come true with statement credits to cover what we spend at small businesses.
AMEX Express Checkout may be even better:
Last week I wrote about the new AMEX Express Checkout service and the promo offer for $10 off any order.
The terms say “Limit one $10 statement credit, per American Express online account, per merchant.”
But I like experimenting so I made several orders of $0.01 each from Newegg.
I used AMEX cards from the same online account as well as cards with their own account login. I also used primary and secondary cards from the same account.
Today I got a $10 statement credit on each AMEX card for every $0.01 order that I made, so it took just 5 days instead of the stated 90 days after the promo end to get the credit. And it worked for cards on the same online account.
While SBS 2014 for example actually required you to spend $30 to get back $30, this promotion allows you to spend any amount to get back a $10 statement credit! Plus it works at 11 different stores!
The 1 penny items from NewEgg are now sold out, but you can use this NewEgg link to find other cheap items that will trigger a $10 statement credit! Currently items start at just $0.13 shipped, though cheaper items are likely to sell out quickly…
The only thing I didn’t try was making multiple purchases on the same card, though I just tried that now and will post an update if that gets a credit as well.
This promotion runs through 09/07/15. Consumer and business cards are eligible. Prepaid and corporate liable cards are not eligible.
The process is simple:
1. Add any inexpensive item to your cart.
2. Select AMEX Checkout in your cart:
3. Login to your AMEX account, verify your account, and checkout.
4. Repeat for your other cards.
5. Check back in 5-7 days for a credit.
Eligible stores (Each AMEX card is eligible for a $10 statement credit for making a purchase at each of these stores):
