Earn a $20 gift card when you spend $200 online using a MasterCard (seems to be both credit and debit cards, but PIN transactions don’t count) between November 15 and December 31, 2011.

MasterCard Holiday Moments That Matter
Spend $200 Online Using MasterCard & Get a $20 Gift Card Back!

Emily and I can use some extra money with the holiday season approaching, so we’re registering our US Air MasterCards,  Citi Thank You Premier, & ING bank debit cards in the promotion!

You’re in luck if you participated in last year’s SunTrust Bank debit card promotion for Delta miles since SunTrust debit cards are MasterCards.

Here’s how to get the $20 gift card:

Step 1 – Register your MasterCard

Register your MasterCard to be eligible for the promotion.

Step 2 – Spend $200 online

You’ve got to spend $200 online (spending at physical locations don’t count) to qualify for the $20 gift card.  You can spend $200 in 1 transaction or in many transactions as long as you spend at least $200 by December 31, 2011.

Only purchases made after registering your card count, so be sure to register your MasterCard before spending money online.

However, “Offline, PIN-based & international transactions are ineligible” for the $20 gift card.  You also have to be a resident of the US.

Step 3 – Complete the redemption form

Fill in the redemption form which will be e-mailed to you 1 week after completing the $200 online spending requirement.

However, only the first 80,000 folks – who complete ALL 3 steps –  will get the $20 gift cards.

And the next 10,000 folks will get a magazine subscription worth $35.88 according to the terms and conditions.  Isn’t it strange how the second prize (magazines) is worth more than the 1st prize ($20 gift cards).

Or just maybe the magazine subscriptions are not worth $35.88!

Bottom Line:  Not a bad way to earn an extra $20 on money I’d spend anyway!

Which MasterCard are you registering for the promotion?

@Christine and @Million Mile Secrets,

It seems the change with US Airways and Amazon is permanent as they switched the company who runs their mall. View from the wing explains:

@M – I was hoping that they hadn’t switched providers, but at least we can still earn miles from the Hawaiian Airline portal for Amazon.com shopping.

So I used my Bold Card and my wife’s Bold Card and paid our phone, gas and cable bills online, getting to the $200 threshold on each. Here’s hoping they count as valid expenses. Anyone have anything concrete on whether online billpay counts as “spending $200 online”?

Is it just my imagination, or is Amazon.com no longer linked with the US Airways Dividend shopping mall? This would be such the easy spend, since I buy half of everything on Amazon these days.

@Christine – You’re right – it has disappeared. I’m waiting and hoping that it is a temporary glitch and it will be back soon!

My strategy: buy costco cash cards (via costco.com) to meet the $200 spend. I buy so much at costco it shouldn’t be a problem to use up the cash cards before too long. The way I see it, this basically amounts to 10% off at costco. 😀

I would buy few gas cards online. This may not yield double dip as Chip said, but IMHO there is no depreciation and you are not buying something used less or overvalued.
