Amex Offers: Get $75 Back on $200 at bloomingdales.com, $31 Moneymaker [Targeted]
Check your Amex login for the following targeted offer. It might be on business cards only.
- Get a one-time $75 statement credit by using your enrolled card to spend $200+ at bloomingdales.com
The Fine Print
- Expires 6/30/17
- Online only
- $200 can be spent at once or combined across multiple transactions
This is quite a generous offer, though it’s only found on some cards. I found it on three of my cards.
To add to the mix, Ebates is offering 15% on Bloomingdale’s this week. If you order something exactly $200, you’ll end up paying just $95 after the $75 + $30 rebates. Wow!
From a gift card reselling perspective, it looks like you can order a $200 e-gift card or physical gift card (physical has a $2 shipping fee), and as far as I can tell that will trigger the offer credit. Portal data points don’t look good, but at this discount it should be a nice moneymaker regardless. Assuming you can sell it for 78%, you’d net $31 per offer. If rates go down, your profit will go down but it’s hard to imagine a scenario that it won’t be somewhat profitable.
I tried a $200 e-gift card and got an instant congrats email from Amex, and I’m confident the credit will post. I’ll wait until they email this gift card and then order the next one.
After placing the $200 order, Amex sent me a follow-up offer to get $30 off $150 in Bloomingdale’s stores. I wrote about that in a separate post.
