One of the great benefits of being an American Express card holder is that they have a ton of great member benefits like the Amex Sync program. By connecting your American Express to your social media account such as Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare or TripAdvisor, you can access special discounts at stores like Amazon.com, Neiman Marcus or Forever 21.
Amex has released some great promos recently such as an offer for a $50 statement credit when you make a $200 purchase at Neiman Marcus, or a $25 statement credit when you make a $75 purchase at Amazon.
With Facebook, to sign up you visit the Amex Link Like Love app and click on the appropriate offer.
With Twitter, you sign up by tweeting the appropriate hashtag such as #AmexAmazon. Typically within a few minutes, you’ll receive a response tweet from @AmexSync saying that you’re signed up for the offer and they’ll include a link to the offer terms and conditions.
After you make your purchase, you will receive an email thanking you for participating in the offer and that your purchase is being reviewed to make sure it meets the requirements for participating in the offer. Amex says these statement credits will appear on your statement within 90 days of purchase but in my experience they are credited sooner than that.
I love that American Express is coming up with new ways to keep members engaged with their products and making each card earn its spot in my wallet. I personally have the Costco True Earnings card and Blue Cash Everyday card. These cards are great for everyday spending (I earn 3% back on gas, 2% back on restaurants/travel and 1% on everything else on the Costco card, and 3% back on groceries, 2% back on gas/department stores and 1% on everything else on the Blue Cash Everyday card).
Have you sync’ed your American Express card? What offers have you taken advantage of?
Btw – American Express is not an advertiser on this site. I’m simply an extremely happy customer!
