If you don't regularly check your American Express "Amex Offers For You" tab, you should. Right now a lot of cardholders are reporting an awesome Sync deal from American Express with Staples.
You get a $20 statement credit when purchasing $100 at Staples (not online).
To get the offer, log in to your American Express account. Click on the Amex Offers For You tab (as pictured below) to discover all of the great Sync deals, including Staples.
Navigate down the list of offers to see if the Staples Sync offer is available for you. It should look like this:
On the right, you'll want to click the Save Offer button.
****This is important if you have more than one American Express account****
For those of you with more than one American Express, it is possible to sync the same offer to all cards. You must make sure that different tabs are open on your browser though. For example, I have the SPG American Express and the Hilton HHonors American Express. When I load offers to my cards, I ensure that I can see the SPG card offers on one browser tab, and the Hilton offers on another browser tab. I then save the offer to each card.
Question: How do I spend $100 at Staples?
You could do any of the following:
- Buy $100 of goods you would normally have to buy (save $20).
- Purchase a $100 MasterCard or Visa gift card with $5.95 transaction fee (profit $14.05).
- From now through Saturday, October 25th, purchase three $100 Visa gift cards with three $5.95 transaction fees and you'll also get a $20 prepaid Visa card as a rebate (profit $22.15).
- From now through Sunday, October 25th, purchase two $200 Visa gift cards with two $6.95 transaction fees and you'll also get a $20 prepaid Visa card as a rebate (profit $26.10).
Those are just four options that I can think of, off of the top of my head.
My Two Cents
I'll definitely be taking advantage of this Staples American Express Sync promotion. The deal expires on November 9, 2014, so there is plenty of time to take advantage of this promotion.
If you don't regularly check your Amex Offers page I highly recommend it. There are constantly some amazing offers!
