Do you have an American Express card in your wallet that’s feeling neglected? Show it a bit of love, and register it over at AmEx Sync. You can link your American Express card to your Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare accounts, get exclusive offers, then get cash back on purchases you make at select merchants with your linked card. A statement credit appears on your account within 3-5 business days, often sooner than that. The best part about these deals is they do not exclude gift card purchases, so long as your total meets the minimum purchase requirement. Deals offered through the Link, Like, Love Facebook App are tailored to your ‘likes’ and buying habits, so offers for one person may not be available to another. However, there are some great national deals available to everyone:
Spend $5+ at McDonald’s, get $5 cash back, until 10/31/12:
- Sync your AmEx card with your Twitter account.
- Tweet using #AmexMcDs to add this offer to your synced AmEx card. You will receive a confirmation reply from AmEx Sync that the offer has been loaded to your card.
- Make any purchase of $5 or more at McDonald’s before Oct. 31 (excludes stores inside of Walmart, see full terms and conditions).
- Receive a $5 statement credit.
Spend $50 at Romano’s Macaroni Grill, get $15 cash back, until 9/30/12:
- Link your AmEx card with your Facebook account. Claim the offer for $15 cash back when you spend $50 at Romano’s Macaroni Grill. Alternately, check in to Romano’s Macaroni Grill on Foursquare, or Tweet #AmexMacGrill 15 with a synced Twitter account. (You only need to do one of these three to register for the promotion).
- Enjoy a meal or buy a $50 gift card by Sept. 30.
- Get $15 cash back statement credit!
- Details are still pending for this promotion. In the past, you could check in to a local business on Foursquare and receive $25 cash back on any purchase of $25 or more. AmEx’s definition of “small business” is pretty liberal, so last year’s merchants included grocery stores, wine and liquor stores, even locally owned chains such as Ace Hardware.
