Have a Home Improvement Project Coming Up? Save $10 With Your AMEX Card

With this deal you can save at more stores than just Lowe’s.  That’s because Lowe’s sells many gift cards including: Amazon, iTunes, Starbucks, movie theaters, restaurants, etc.

The fine print does say that you will NOT get the statement credit if you buy electronic and “design your own” gift cards from Lowe’s.  But it looks like other types of gift cards are NOT excluded.

4.  Petsmart

Shop at Petsmart by April 30 2014, and get a $5 statement credit when you spend $25 or more.

Save $5 When You Spend $25 at Petsmart With AMEX Offers

Combining this AMEX Offer with the Lowe’s deal would be a great way to stock-up on cat food for Joelle!

I could go to Lowe’s and purchase a $50 Petsmart gift card and get a $10 statement credit.  Then I could go into Petsmart and buy $25 worth of food to save $5.  

The terms and conditions state:

Limit 1 statement credit per American Express Card across all American Express offer channels.

So you should be able to get a statement credit for each AMEX card.

Emily and I have 6 American Express cards.

So technically we can spend $450 (6 AMEX cards X $50 PetSmart gift cards at Lowe’s + 6 AMEX cards X $25 at PetSmart).

And we would save $90 (6 AMEX cards X $10 back from AMEX + 6 AMEX cards X $5 back from AMEX).

Hmm…can you freeze cat food? 

How to Save Even More Money

Let’s say you want to take advantage of the AMEX Offers PetSmart $5 statement credit to save money on a Kong Cat Scratcher, which costs ~$32.

Go to Evreward to Find Shopping Portal Deals

Step 2 – Buy a Store Gift Card (Doesn’t Always Work)

Go to the shopping portal of your choice and buy a PetSmart gift card.  You will NOT always earn points or cash back when you buy gift cards through a shopping portal.

I personally would skip this step because it doesn’t always work and the payoff isn’t worth the hassle for me.  But I know that some folks are all over these kind of stacking opportunities.

Buy a $25 PetSmart Gift Card Through the Shopping Portal

If you go through Mr. Rebates to buy your PetSmart gift card, you could get:

  • $5 statement credit from AMEX
  • $7.50 cash back if you’re new to Mr. Rebates
  • $1.25 cash back (5% cash back from Mr. Rebates)

This gives you up to ~$14 in savings!

Step 3 – Look for Discounts & Coupons

With a quick search on RetailMeNot, I found coupon code “PET4PERKS14” for $5 off when you spend $30.  However, there could be better offers out there.

  • $5 statement credit from Amex Offers

  • $1.25 Mr. Rebates 5% cash back for gift card
  • $5 RetailMeNot coupon
  • $1.25 Mr. Rebates 5% cash back for cat scratcher

So you save a total of $20 on a ~$32 cat scratcher.  That’s a ~63% discount!

This is just 1 example, you can probably find ways to increase these savings!

Bottom Line

This month’s American Express Offers include statement credits for shopping at BP, Hampton Inn, Lowe’s, and PetSmart.  These are just a few that looked interesting to me, but check to see if there are other AMEX Offers that could save you money.

  1. Think you mean prepaid cards like Bluebird cannot sign up. Serve is eligible for these through Twitter.

  2. The amex lowes tweet offer has been dead for two wks now.

  3. The Lowe’s offer is pretty good. We went and bought a bunch of restaurant gift cards from Lowe’s. Great savings!

  4. I had synced my AmEx card for the BP deal and an interesting thing happened. I used the card at the pump but only charged about $18. I get home and find that AmEx had notified me that there had been a purchase of over $50 on my card at the station. In this case it was $100. Gas stations tend to put a higher amount initially on your credit card and then it gets adjusted down to the true value.

    Here’s the interesting thing – I get another message from AmEx saying thanks for using your synced card and look for your $5 credit in the next 90 days. It will be interesting to see if this credit goes through since I did not spend $30. Although I do intend to charge $30 before the deadline just to make sure.

  5. I don’t know if there was a glitch in the Amex BP credit or what, but for the past month I was getting $5 off whenever I spent $25 at the pump. There wasn’t any offer, but it worked like the same offer they gave last Xmas. Funny thing was that I wasn’t getting the “thank you” email and it doesn’t show in my total saved for the year, but it kept giving me the $5 credit. It stopped working once they gave me the offer to get $5 back when I spent $30.

  6. Can you get the deals with an amex issued by Citibank? Such as the Citi AA Advantage Amex?

  7. just wanted to point this out, maybe I’m confused, but how exactly does buying a giftcard help in this situation? considering you’d have to checkout at petco with your synced Amex, right? so what good would that giftcard for $25 (in the screenshot) via mr. rebates do for a ~$32 product where atleast $25 has to be on the Amex to get $5 back?

    I ask this because you mentioned a shopping portal — unless that was just to connect back to Petco where you actually purchased the giftcard, in which case nevermind. just wanted to think thru that and if I was on the right path with potential stacking.

  8. I have been hitting Lowes every other day with a different sync card to buy the $50 Amazon gift cards. That $10 rebate is 20% off, amd you rarely get Amazon cards discounted anywhere near that on the gift card sites.
