Sub I know you want the bonus but if you can't afford to pay it back quickly I recommend just letting it go . It's not worth getting in over your head for

Subexistence- The promo code will make it better, you'll actually make profit.

Say you buy a $400 Amex gift card prior to the promo code it would be I believe $403.95 plus the $8.95 shipping fee.

With the code FREESHP17A you pay $403.95 but you earn $4 in rewards, and $10 for the Offer in your Offers section, not to mention meeting your spend requirement!

Do you know often Amex offers the giftcard deal? Like I could I buy$200 gc get$10 then buy another $200 then get$10. Also could free shipping code be used twice in that case, for each of the $200 purchases. I also hear that occasionally Amex gives codes that discount both purchase and shipping fees. How often does that occur?

They only appear about once every 3-6 months in your offers section.

They do occasionally offer a code that will discount both, but it is uncommon usually it's one or the other.

I'm going to add an Authorized user to help meet spending requirements.

Unless it's someone you trust absolutely with your life, I personally wouldn't trust them to have a credit card in your name, AU's are not responsible for any debt they incur, you are. If they max your card and don't pay you legally it's your problem and you can't do anything to them.

Was the Amex gift card fee of $3.95 too much for you or why didn't you want to go that route? Also as a datapoint I got the $10 bonus for $200 spend on Amex Giftcards 1-2 days after it actually posted onto my account.

I added my dad and older sister. I trust them enough. The Amex $10 bonus ends 7/31 but free shipping code ends 6/30. I was hoping in the month of july they may have an offer that waives both purchase and shipping fee. If that doesn't happen then I'll settle for free shiping because with 1% cashback plus the $10 bonus for $200, it's a good 4% back. I also feel like a complete idiot for adding the authorized users without takind advantage of the bonus $25 for adding authorized users. http://milestomemories.boardingarea.com/amex-authorized-user-bonus/

If you buy a GC at Home Depot it works as well. This also is a good way for Discover 5% home improvement store category. It rings up as a store purchase as long as it is bought in store
