Like many women, I love shopping (well I do have 3 girls to shop for)! I love it even more if there is a deal! I always try my hardest to maximize all the Amex offers and Visa Checkout deals I can find along with any discount codes that stores offer. Yes, it often requires extra steps (such as buying gift cards first to trigger Amex offer), but I feel the saving is worth the extra few minutes spent online.

[How to make money with Amex Sync offers]

shopping-bagsI did most of my holiday shopping online this year during Black Friday and Cyber Monday while my family was vacationing in Hawaii. This year, I combined six Amex offers for Best Buy, a $20 Visa checkout discount, along with $30 Best Buy bucks that I earned, to purchase a new MacBook Air, two Beats and two Sony wireless headsets. I saved well over $200 on top of Best Buy’s sales price. I also used the Staples offer to purchase Macy’s and Nordstrom gift cards before I bought stuff directly from the department stores.

If you are among the thousands last-minute shoppers, be sure to check if you can save some money by using the following Amex Offers that will expire on or before December 31:  Some of these may be targeted, and some may have reached their capacity by now, but it makes sense to check your Amex accounts.

  • BestBuy – $25 statement credit on $250 purchase (physical gift card works);
  • – $25 back on $200 purchase (Newegg sells gift cards!);
  • – $20 back on $100 purchase (non-staples eGift cards works!);
  • Office Depot – $20 back on $100 purchase;
  • Bloomingdales – $30 back on $150 purchase (expires 12/30);
  • JCPenney & Sears – $10 back on $50 purchase;
  • The Body Shop – $10 back on $40 purchase (expires 12/24);
  • Levis – $25 back on $125 purchase (expires 12/25);
  • J Crew – $25 back on $125 purchase (expires 12/26);
  • Sunglass Hut – $50 back on $200 purchase;
  • Under Armour – $20 back on $100 purchase;
  • Harry & David – $20 back on $75 purchase;
  • Cole Haan – $50 back on $200 purchase;
  • Samsonite – $40 back on $200 purchase;
  • Hilton Hotel & Resort – $50 on $200 purchase.

It is also always a good idea to double check the terms of the offers online before you make the purchases.   Sometimes all gift cards are excluded, some times just e-gift cards are excludes, and sometimes everything should work.
