Amex Offers have a new offer that seems to be on each one of my account. You can 20% back as a statement credit every time you use your enrolled Card to make a purchase online at shoebuy.com by 3/2/16. Limit of $20 in total statement credits.
This is a new type of offer from Amex with a percentage, instead of a fixed statement credit amount. They look like they copied the newly launched “Citi Smart Savings” here. This makes it easier to maximize the offer, since you don’t have to spend an exact amount to receive credit.
This offer can be combined with a current Visa Checkout promo:
Spend $100 or more and receive a $50 discount when paying with Visa Checkout. Use promo code: EMLVISACHECK15 at checkout. Expires 12/16.
You can add your Amex card to your Visa Checkout account, and use it for your purchase at shoebuy.com. You’ll get the $50 off and then 20% off on the remaining balance.
Quick Math For $100 Purchase
- Get $50 discount with Visa Checkout
- Get $10 back with Amex Offer (20% on the $50 that will be charged)
- Get $7.50 back with portal (15% on the $50 that will be charged)
- So you end up paying $32.50 for $100 purchase
While that is a great discount, I’m not very familiar with shoebuy and their prices. Make sure to compare prices with other websites, even with the discount.
