American Express Sync Offers: Lowes (Spend $50, Get $10) & Chevron/Texaco (Spend $25, Get $5)

Two new American Express Sync offers have been released which could be of use to some of you. Let’s have a look at both of them:

Lowes Spend $50, Get $10 Statement Credit

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Enroll in this American Express sync offer with #AmexLowes and spend $50 or more instore or online and receive a $10 statement credit from American Express

The Fine Print

  • You must enroll in this offer and receive a confirmation tweet
  • Availability is limited (once you’ve tweeted out the hashtag you are enrolled in the offer)
  • Purchase must be made by April 17th
  • Offer excludes outlets, Orchard Supply Hardware and ATG stores. Electronic gift cards, corporate gift cards and “design your own” gift cards on lowes.com are not included
  • International locations, GM Business Choice, Lowe’s Zone and Installation Services are also excluded

Our Verdict

The highest resale value of Lowe’s gift cards is with Saveya and they are offering 82% of face value. Lowe’s also sells a heap of 3rd party gift cards, Frequent Miler has a list of what they had in stock last time this promo came around. My plan is just to go in store and purchases gift cards I’d use anyway which will net me a 20% discount + whatever points I earn on the credit card. If you’re only making 3-4% profit then that’s only $1.5-$2 profit per $50 and won’t be worth the hassle for most people. That being said if you can find gift cards with high resell values then an easy profit can be made.

Chevron/Texaco Spend $25, Get $5 Statement Credit

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Spend $25 or more at the pump at Chevron/Texaco with an enrolled credit card and receive a $5 statement credit from American Express

The Fine Print

  • You must enroll in this offer and receive a confirmation tweet
  • Availability is limited (once you’ve tweeted out the hashtag you are enrolled in the offer)
  • Offer valid for purchases at the pump at U.S. Chevron or Texaco locations. All other transactions, including convenience store and car wash purchases, automotive repair services, wholesale, international locations, online transactions, gift card purchases, Caltex, and airline and marine fuel purchases are excluded

Our Verdict

This is basically a 20% discount on gas at Chevron/Texaco when purchasing $25 in gas. How good of an offer that is really depends on how much Chevron/Texaco charge for gas in your area.

Final Thoughts

Neither of these deals are earth shattering good, but it’s nice to see American Express sync offers making a bit of a comeback – although you’ll notice that we typically get a lot of these deals at the end of each quarter as companies try to pad their sales figures to meet targets. If you’re not familiar with sync offers, I’d strongly recommend setting up OffersBot for all your cards so they’ll automatically enroll themselves. I’d also recommend reading the following pages:

The terms exclude corporate gift cards, design-your-own gift cards, and electronic gift cards. It does not mention other kinds of gift cards, unless I am missing something. If that is the case, it should not be a problem purchasing gift cards on the racks at Lowes.

I usually buy gas gift cards at Lowes and then resell them. Usually net around $5 per amex card.

Last time they had this promotion there were very few BP and Shell gc on the shelves. Has anyone had any luck with that?

Chuck

I’ve had, but they are low sometimes.
