This is the promotion: Spend at least $10 at Newegg.com with "American Express Checkout" and you'll get a $10 statement credit. So you can spend more than $10, but the best deal is to just purchase an e-gift card to a place you might go to in the future. NO NEED to register your card...just make sure you use American Express Checkout and you'll get the credit. Too easy!
NOTE: This are several other merchants that you can get a $10 credit, but Newegg is the only one that really makes sense to me.
You can get the $10 credit on all of your consumer and business AMEX cards...even authorized users.
If you have multiple cards you want to get the free deal on (I have over 10), then I found that making the purchases with the Newegg App on your smart phone is the easiest way to do it (there are errors that occur when I tried doing on my laptop).
You can only get ONE $10 gift card per vender in a 48 hour period per Newegg account. So if you wanted 2 $10 home depot gift cards by using 2 different AMEX cards, you would have to wait 48 hours before purchasing the 2nd $10 home depot gift card.
So, for your convenience, here are the screen shots of the whole process that I did from my phone:
Search for "gift cards" and select a $10 gift card and Add it to your Cart
You will see the shopping cart in the upper right corner have an item. Click on that to checkout.
This is the important part. DON'T click on "Secure Checkout". Select "AMEX Express Checkout"
You will then be asked to sign into your american express account.
Select the card you want to use.
You will then be sent a code that will be used to verify the transaction. And then you will be asked to complete the order. It's very easy to do and definitely worth the few minutes to get some free $10 e-gift cards. You don't even need to pull out your credit card to do this which is really nice.
Don't have an AMEX credit card or want to get some more?
I would recommend getting the SPG AMEX credit card as the bonus is temporarily increased to 30,000 points, which is a a good offer. You can use that to book 3-10 hotel nights or you could cash it out for $300-$500 in cash. Not sure how you will spend enough to get the bonus? This is a good starting point to help you figure it out>.
Another thing you could do is add an authorized user to your current account and you'll get another card in the mail in a week or so. I've added myself to all of my wife's accounts and her to all of my accounts.
Small Business Saturday is coming up in November, so this is a good time to collect a few more AMEX credit cards.
