AMEX & Twitter

Hey...

Has anyone synced their AMEX card to twitter to take advantage of any specials? If so? Has it been worthwhile?

Re: AMEX & Twitter

I've synced both Amexs via twitter and one via Facebook.  I've actually used what I loaded/synced about 4-5 times in the last 6 months.  95% percent of the time the deals  are nothing I would ever buy..But I usually find something once every other month.  The best deals are the ones on things you would buy anyways like 5 dollar statement credit when you buy 25 dollars worth of gas at a certain station or 5 dollar credit when you buy 5 bucks or more of McDonald's ( this is a current deal).  I get a statement credit in 2-3 days, but they say it could take a cycle or two.  I have used one other deal to get 10 bucks off a clothes store I like, but I'm not a big spender outside of necessities, which is really what Amex is gearing is towards most of the time with the deals.

Re: AMEX & Twitter

Thanks pkosheta.  Sounds like it won't hurt to sync it up in case they offer a deal I can use.

Re: AMEX & Twitter

Yes, I've synched at the beginning of the year and have found it to be useful. So far I've received:

 

$25 Cheesecake Factory

$25 Macacroni Grill

$5 McDonalds (twice, two seperate deals)

$50 Travelocity

$25 Ticketmaster

$5 Shell Gas

 

That's $135 saved on stuff that I was going to buy anyway. I could have taken advantage of a second round of offers on Macaroni's for $25, but didn't get around to it in time. I think it's a good deal, as it's money in my pocket for simply using the card as a means of tendering payment for planned purchases.
