Amex Offers: 20% Off Lots of Gift Cards (Amazon, Gas, etc.) at Dollar General Now Publicly Available

We posted this deal yesterday as a targeted offer. Now we’re reposting it since it’s publicly available for signup via Twitter. We’ve updated the post with some additional info as well.

The Offer

Direct Link

  • Spend $25 at Dollar General with your registered Amex card and receive a $5 statement credit.

This offer is showing in some Amex logins and is available via Twitter by tweeting #AmexDollarGen from a connected Twitter account.

Dollar General has a wide variety of goods they sell including regular grocery-type items. They also have a nice supply of gift cards they sell. This will allow us to get a 20% discount at any of those various stores.

Dollar General carries Amazon gift cards as well as Visa, gas, and restaurant gift cards. Here’s a list of some interesting gift cards they carry, taken from MilesToMemories (who also posted photos as well):

  • $25 Vanilla Visa with a $3.95 fee
  • $50 Vanilla Visa with a $4.95 fee
  • Variable Vanilla Visas (up to $500) with a $4.95 fee
  • $25 Shell Gift Cards
  • Variable load Amazon gift cards (up to $500)
  • $50 BP Gift Cards

Fine Print

  • Expires 8/31/15
  • In-store only

Our Verdict

A 20% discount is nice, the issue is that it’s only $25 per card which makes it a hassle to deal with. You should be able to split the payment of one gift card or order between multiple Amex cards. Let us know how many cards you were able to split it between in one transaction.

There’s also some interesting coupons available if you sign up for DG Digital Coupons. The have a coupon or $3.95 off a Paypal Cash card and 20% off Applebees or iHop gift cards. Also, $2 off a purchase of $10 and 10% off AT&T phone cards.

There is a stated limit of one offer per customer so these things don’t seem scalable. And remember to clip the coupon first and enter your phone number at checkout.

As always, make sure that the final cost after all coupons is $25 so that it will trigger the Amex Offer.

None of my cards have it! Bummer. I have Blue Cash Everyday, Delta, and Premier Gold

My BCE has this offer! Too bad it doesn’t seem scalable. Well, off to find a Dollar General.

I was able to find this on my Amex Everyday and Premier Rewards Gold. Sadly it is not available on my Serve or its subaccounts.

Thanks for the tip Doc!

I’m pretty sure that Dollar Generals are hard coded against credit cards for PayPal My Cash cards. Mine is anyways. I’m not sure about store gift cards, though.

Also, I had it on two of my three Amex cards, and I was able to load it to my third-party Amex card on Facebook’s Amex Offers.

I’m lucky! 5/5 for me (two Blue Cash, Costco, Business Rewards Gold, and SimplyCash). But to be fair, I was not targeted for any of the last ones posted here such as Amazon, etc.

Had it on all 4 of my Amex cards. Bought four @25 Shell GCs and got email confirmation instantly from Amex stating that I redeemed the offer. 20% off on Shell GCs is not too shabby.

This was on all my 3 cards and wife’s 4 cards. Drove to the nearest Dollar General store (11 miles) and absolutely nailed it 🙂 Bought some Subway, Apple Bees, Starbucks cards and some grocery. Thank you so much for posting the deal Chuck!

Every card of mine and the wife, 12 each.

12 cards? Isn’t there a max number of credit cards one can have with Amex? I am assuming you have a lot of charge cards and business cards?

Fiby

You are limited to 4 personal credit cards from Amex (and I mean administered by Amex). There is a different limit for charge cards, if it exists, I can’t recall.

The only way to have 12 Amex’s actually administered by Amex is to have a lot of charge cards (not likely), business cards (not likely), or authorized user cards (very likely).

You are correct sir!

Here in Texas my Dollar General would not accept AX cards for Variable Value Gift Cards such as Amazon, Home Depot etc. They would accept AX as payement for fixed value 25.00 cards such as Darden and Chili’s etc.

If its not showing up for you just use Twitter #AmexDollarGen. Easiest way IMO to get these offers is setup Tweetdeck with multiple accounts.
