Amex Offer, Get $10 Off $200 Amex Gift Cards

There’s a new Amex Offer that can save you a bit on Amex Gift Card purchases. We’ve seen these offers in the past and they usually make sense when stacked with free shipping and no-fee codes.

Gift Card Amex Offer

Get a one-time $10 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $200+ in one or more transactions online at americanexpress.com/gift by 12/31/2017.

Offer Terms

  • Expires 12/31/2017
  • Not valid for in-store purchases.
  • Excludes purchases made at third party websites.
  • Excludes Logo Gift Cards and Gift Cheques. Excludes Prepaid Reloadable Cards.
  • Not valid on orders over $100,000.
  • Offer not valid for any purchases made by using American Express Membership Rewards® points.

How To Maximize

The offer itself knocks $10 off a gift card purchase, but these Amex Gift cards come with a $3.95 activation fee and also e $8.95 shipping fee, if you don’t have a premium shipping plan with Amex. That means that you would still end up paying extra for that $200 gift card. To offset these expenses, you can use promo codes. Here’s some active codes:

  • FREESHP17A for free shipping
  • SEPT09FEE for no fees till 10/15/17

With these promo codes, now it makes more sense. Since you can only use one promo code, you’re better off getting free shipping, if you don’t have a shipping plan. But on top of that you can most likely earn portal cashback as well. TopCashBack pays out 1.5%, so you can get $3 back per gift card.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

Amex Gift cards are not the easiest to deal with since you can use the same avenues as Visa and Mastercard gift cards. But you can potentially get 4.5% off so even if you use them for regular spend, that would be a better discount that you would get through credit card rewards.
