Can I do this multiple times with multiple AMEX cards? If so, do I need multiple Twitter accounts as well?


You would need multiple twitter account to register multiple cards or additional user cards.


it seems that the offer isnt specifecly for the charity rather anything in Austin Texas


That’s correct. But this a nice way of donating $5 and making $5 in the process.


Just donated. Thanks for the heads up. Making money and donating to kids, can’t beat that.


can i use a citi amex?


additionals count?




@sprint: try registering and see if it lets you


What about the Jewish Federation of Austin?


Thanks gave to the Jewish Federation of Austin and it worked.


@Matt: RIGHT ON!!!!!! 🙂


What about
Should work?


If you try it let us know if you get an email confirmation.


Cc donations are through PayPal. Any ideas as to whether that should affect it? Presumably amex would recognize it as PayPal not as Austin?


I gave $5 to Austin Childrens Center and got an email confirmation from them. Am I supposed to get something from Amex about it or will it just show up on my statement?



Did you confirm in @connect that you were registered for the Austin promo before making the donation?
If you did you should be fine.


Just donated here:
to Chabad @ the University of Texas and got confirmation email from Amex within 2 min.



+ no $5.00 min

True there’s no min. But I figure it’s a cause that justifies at the very least going halves with them with on the $10 from Amex – particularly considering that they’re paying Amex processing fees.


Citi Amex confirmed!!
Got a confirmation email from Amex for $10 credit for Citi Amex.

I work at the Jewish Federation of Greater Austin and I am the one that processed all of these wonderful donations. Thank you for your generosity to the Austin Jewish Community! PS: We did not know about this promotion before this morning. We will be sure to let the Austin Jewish Community know about Dan’s Deals.

Thank you all for donating to Austin Children’s Shelter. We weren’t aware of this promotion either but were absolutely delighted to see them coming in fast and furious! The donations you all made help us provide 24-hr care, services and programs for abused and neglected children and youth. Thank you!!!
