  1. I have SPG personal but why I don’t see this offer in my Amex Offers for You?

  2. Cool find! Am I correct in assuming you can combine this with going through BeFrugal to get 13% back on the Staples purchase as well?

  3. Finally was targeted for one of these! But I’m undecided on whether to use my Ink card for my normal Amazon gift card purchase or go with this on my AMEX premier rewards card. Daraius, any thoughts on one vs. the other?

  4. Better buying a $100 Staples gift card on each of your AmEx cards and then using two $100 gift cards in store to buy one $200 Visa GC, no? Or would that not work?

  5. @David — I was targeted on my Hilton HHonors Amex and not my SPG…

  6. Must be too lazy to repost blogs with useful information. Now instructing people on how to get deals that may or may not be on their credit card accounts.

  7. HoustonRobert

    I was targeted and made my purchase. Thanks for the info, D!

  8. Yes! I did receive 5 offers using multiple tabs on the Staples. But, sadly not on Costco. And, no target for the Amazon. Thanks!

  9. Why not to buy 100 visa gift card? the return seems to be higher

  10. Did anyone figure out why only some people are targeted?

  11. Amy,
    Depends on what your goal is. If you are going to load it into your Bluebird/Serve account, then the higher the card value the better. If you are just going to liquidate the gift card, then you are probably better off getting a lower denomination.

  12. Thanks for the hands up. I was just recently introduced to this site & the miles game, so I’m earning my wings. I have this offer on 2 of 3 of my AmEx cards so I’m thrilled with that.

  13. AMEX Offers also has an offer for the Hilton Surpass card. You get $50 cash back on any purchase of $250 or more at Hilton hotels through 9/2/14. This one is a no-brainer.

  14. @JDH I will give that a try and let you know.

  15. If you buy the Visa gift cards, remember you have to liquidate them as well. Also, you’re not earning a ton of points and you have to wait awhile to get the card in the mail. The cost is also high. If buying Visa, $100 gift cards are the better return, not $200 gift cards.

    A better option would be to purchase any merchant gift cards, such as Starbucks or from many restaurants, etc. Fees for those are $1.99 so you are netting $13 after AE rebate. The Visa gift cards are $6.95 per $100 so your net is much less.

    Remember terms say no e-gift cards delivered to an e-mail address, physical cards should be fine.

  16. @Kurt Thanks for the explanation. Also I think it is more convenient to load 200 card.

    @Kent C I would buy $100 gift card, then use it to buy Starbucks/restaurant cards from discount gift card site or frys (to earn some fuel points). 🙂

  17. thanks for the heads up. i knew i had the staples offer but did not care to spend $100 at staples, until you mentioned gift cards were an option. I may not have maximized my return but i bought a $100 Visa for $106.95 and after the $15 statement credit I will profit $8.05. For 10 minutes of easy work, I am satisfied, thanks for the tip bro

  18. had this offer as well people: Get a one-time $10 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a total of $200 or more on American Express Gift Cards at http://www.americanexpress.com/gift-cards by 7/30/2014.

    it seems the only shipping option though for me (lowest cost) was $8.95 and to buy a $200 card it was like $3.99 i believe, so i cant even come out ahead on this one eh???

  19. I got the offer on my hilton amex and proceeded to buy a $100 Nordstrom gift card that had the $1.99 shipping fee. So I get $100 for $87 – and I will have no problem spending this at Nordstrom/Rack.

    Thanks for the tip!

  20. Sorry, I got 4 out of 5 of the offers using sep. tabs.

  21. I have 4 cards (2 SPG and 2 Amex gold)… did not receive Staples, did not receive Amazon, did receive Costco. It would be interesting to find out how we are chosen. Based on spending?

  22. I want to do this for my Wells Fargo Propel, but I pay that bill and manage it through Wells Fargo. While there is a “Amex Offers” button, it seems to only be the ones dealing with social (connect to twitter, facebook or foursquare). Any tips for me, or is this just not possible?

  23. Do you recommend shopping portal to get additional rewards for buying Gift card at Staples.com?
