FREE Amazon Prime Membership for 1 year! - AMEX

American Express has recently offered several cards that includes a free 1 year membership for amazon prime! Here are the cards that include the offer:

  • Blue Cash Everyday -- NO annual fee, $50 bonus, 3% cashback on groceries, 2% on gas. 
  • Blue Cash Preferred -- $75 annual fee, $100 bonus, 6% cashback on groceries, 3% on gas. 
  • Platinum Card -- $450 annual fee, $250 bonus, $200 airline credit, and free airport lounge access. 
  • Business Gold Rewards -- No annual fee for the first year, then $175 after that, $300 bonus.
This is great  timing for the holidays. You can actually apply for the credit card and once you are approved, you'll get your card number so you can sign-up for amazon prime the same day. 

The Amazon prime membership is a $79 value which includes free 2-day shipping, amazon movies/shows, free lending library, etc. With this membership you can also share the 2-day shipping with up to 4 family members. 

I don't like to pay annual fees so, I would say go with Blue Cash Everyday which will never have an annual fee. If you know how to leverage the other benefits then the other cards could be a good option also. I actually just got the Blue Cash preferred because I was able to get the annual fee waived because I'm a member of the military.

Carter's and Oshkosh B'Gosh 50% off EVERYTHING.

UPDATE: Dead. Hope everyone had a good black friday and congrats to those that snagged this deal!

There are so many Black Friday deals and promos that it's hard to keep track of them all. I have 2 children that are 1 and 3, so when I saw that Carter's and Oshkosh B'Gosh were having an awesome Black Friday sale going on, I had to jump on it.

  • The DEAL: 50% off everything site wide -- no coupon code required. 
  • PLUS: get another 20% off orders over $40 using promo code: CARTSAVE
  • Also, orders over $50 will come with free shipping. 

You will be able to enter the promo code during check-out on the page where you put in your billing information.

Carter's seems to have better deals and I think the clothes are just as good so I shopped at Carter's.

Small Businesses Saturday - free $10

Have an American express credit? Registration for "Small Business Saturday" just opened today. Once you register your card you can use that card at participating small businesses on NOV. 30th and you'll receive a $10 credit to your account. So if you spend exactly $10, that purchase will be completely free. If you spend $14, that purchase would in effect cost you $4.

  • Registration is limited so do it right away. 
  • Multiple american express cards can be used. So if you have 4 cards you can get $40 of credit statements... Another benefit of having many credit cards.
  • Here are other FAQ's
  • This has been an annual event so if you misses out or don't have an American express card, plan now and gets some cards. 
  • Here's a MAP of participating small businesses.

Some people have purchased gift cards at participating locations for $10 so they get the whole purchase refunded and so they can use it on a different day other than Nov. 30th. For example, if you have 3 different registered cards and a participating restaurant sells gift cards, you could purchase 3 separate $10 gift cards that can be used on a different day. 

As always, credit cards are ONLY beneficial for those that can wisely use credit cards.
