Hat tip to Frequent Miler, who was the first I saw to report that Meijer is giving away $20 off of $300 in Visa Gift cards.
To get the coupon, you need to log in to your Meijer MPerks account. If you don’t have an MPerks account, you can create one, but the annoying thing is that they require you to put in a phone number, and then either get a text message from them or call them from that mobile number.
So that makes it trickier to get multiple Meijer MPerks accounts. If anyone has found a way to do that (other than having multiple phones / phone numbers), I’d love to hear about it.
Terms and Conditions
The official terms and conditions for this coupon state that:
No cash back. Subject to availability. See gift card for details, terms, and conditions. While supplies last, no rainchecks. Limit one coupon per transaction. Not to be combined with any other Manufacturer Coupons. This offer can only be used once. Good through October 4th.
Cards to use
Meijer is classified as a grocery store, so if you have an old Amex Blue, that should give 5% cashback on that. Other than that, the American Express Every Day card is another good bet (3x before transaction bonus).
I went in yesterday morning and bought 2 $200 Visa Gift cards ($6.95 activation fee each). Total was $393.90. My Meijer does also sell $100 Visa Gift cards with a $5.95 activation fee.
My reading of the terms means that it would not work again with the same MPerks account (though I’d love to be proven wrong on that), so I have not yet been able to try again.
