On 07/14 I reported that I had received a $10 credit for spending $0.01 via AMEX Express Checkout on several of my primary and secondary AMEX cards that are from the same AMEX online account.
Secondary cards with your SSN can be registered for their own account management under your primary AMEX account login or you can register them for their own online account login.
Just click on “my cards” and then “add another card” at the bottom:
This promotion runs through 09/07/15. Consumer and business cards are eligible. Prepaid (Including Serve/Bluebird/REDcard) and corporate liable cards are not eligible.
It takes up to a week after the charge appears to receive the credit.
Each primary and secondary AMEX card can get a $10 credit to each store, up to a potential $110 in statement credits per AMEX card by using each of your cards at each of the 11 participating stores:
Of course the way to maximize those potential $110 in statement credits per card is by finding the least expensive item sold by each store.
Let’s take a look at what we’ve found so far.
The old NewEgg link no longer shows the inexpensive download items, so here are new links:
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.
The $0.01 software downloads I originally bought (and was credited for after 5 days) have been pulled from the site.
Unfortunately many items were from a seller called V-Top Trading and they forgot to include a shipping charge on their items. They have cancelled all of their orders and NewEgg provided a $5 code to affected customers as a gesture of goodwill.
Commenters confirm that the $10 credits are being reversed for cancelled orders.
For now, the least expensive items from NewEgg are $0.49, so you can make a $9.51 profit on each order.
Some downloadable items have a limit of 2 or 5 downloads per NewEgg account, so read the terms on the item’s page.
Downloadable items require a NewEgg login. To avoid errors on downloadable items it’s best to login to NewEgg from your cart rather than clicking on AMEX Express Checkout right away. After logging in to NewEgg and continuing to the payment screen you can then select AMEX Express Checkout and it should process without errors.
If it still doesn’t work try using a different browser.
You can save 20% off all orders from Sabon through 09/07 with code: LABORDAY
I originally wrote about Sabon in this post 2 days ago.
Additionally you get $1 in loyalty points for each $10 gift card that you buy, so you effectively get $11 for every $10 that you spend. Plus of course you’ll get the $10 back via statement credit.
There’s no limit to how many gift cards you can use in an order.
Shipping is free on $100+ orders.
You can only use 1 promo code, but you can a code with use gift cards and loyalty points.
Shipping is free on $100+ orders, but even if you only have a few AMEX cards you can still get free stuff from Sabon.
-Here is a link for a $4.55 ticket that is currently working with AMEX Checkout. Limit: 2/household.
Just login to TicketMaster, look for “other ways to pay” and select AMEX Express Checkout.
You need to be using the TicketMaster desktop site to use AMEX Express Checkout.
Post a comment if you find other options!
Yesterday DDF member “username” reported that he got a $10 credit for making a $1 donation via Ticketmaster and he shared links to several charities that accepted $1 donations.
That meant a $9 profit on each donation.
Those links are dead, but you can still:
1. Buy a ticket to this test event for $5.25 ($1 plus a $4.25 processing fee) leaving a $4.75 profit per card.
2. I’m not going to speak on the ethics of booking up a free ticket to a movie that you don’t intend to use, but you can add a $5 donation on the page after selecting a free ticket, leaving a $5 profit per card.
LedBury had $1 gift cards in stock yesterday, but unfortunately only $50+ gift cards are currently in stock.
