[Expired] [YMMV] Simon Malls: Purchase $150 In American Express/Visa Giftcards, Get $20 American Express Giftcard/Third Party Giftcard [12/1-12/24, One Per Day]

Deal has expired, view more Simon Mall deals by clicking here.

Update 12/04/18: It seems like different locations have different deals. Some locations are offering a $20 third party gift card instead of the $20 American Express gift card. Seems like it might be restricted to premium outlets and not every premium outlet has an offer. Some third party gift cards available:

  • Location one: Starbucks, Levi’s, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Sunglass Hut, Vera Bradley
  • Location two: Michael Kors, Levis Outlet, and Starbucks

It also seems like the purchase needs to be $150-$400 otherwise it won’t trigger the gift card offer.

Update: Terms actually say you get a $20 American Express gift card if you purchase $150 in Visa or American Express gift cards! This is only available at some Simon Malls.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Simon malls is offering a $20 American Express gift card when you purchase $150 or more in American Express gift cards or Visa gift cards. Might be restricted to premium outlets and not any old Simon Mall

The Fine Print

  • Valid from December 1st – December 24th, 2018
  • While supplies last
  • One per customer per day

Our Verdict

Limit of one per day is very annoying. Not sure if this will be available at all malls, or only selected malls. Simon Mall will also be offering $1 off Visa gift cards from 12/10 until 12/24 as well.

Very bummed I don’t have a Simon Mall around. Congrats to everyone who is about to be on a first name basis with their Simon Mall csr’s!

Best cc to use for Simon mall?

Whatever gets you the best non-bonus rewards. I’m pretty sure there are no bonuses anywhere on commercial real estate, which is Simon’s business and hence their MCC.

Huntington Voice earns 3% discount at Simon coding as a department store for up to $2000 per quarter. You have to choose your category of discount each quarter.

Simon’s MCC isn’t department stores – it’s commercial real estate.

There isn’t really one to my knowledge, this is mainly for general MS, cashback, etc. With $20 amex its a moneymaker anyway you cut it. Ideally take your wife and 3 children who all have AU cards and make $100 bucks or so in a trip. Downside is apparently its outlets only which seem to always be in BFE

how do they enforce one per day? By saving your ID information?

The employee will remember your face. If you want to go to the mall twice a day or live in a metro area with multiple Simons you could skirt it but it’s probably not worth anyone’s time.

I think there is a typo error on the post title as the ad says “December 1-24”, but the title says “12/1-14”.

I don’t think this offer would work in most of the Simon malls.

I think this may be limited to Premium Outlets in San Francisco. I checked the sites for four Premium Outlets in So. Cal., and there is no mention of this offer under “News & Events.”

On the landing page for the offer, there’s a “find location” link. It lists a bunch of malls (including one in San Diego) and the list has been pre-filtered for Premium Outlets (vs just Simon Malls). Hopefully all those are participating.

I also did a google for “Buy a Gift Card, Get a Gift Card site:simon.com” and “site:premiumoutlets.com” and turned up only the SF one.

+1 Alas, DoC William’s provided link appears very specific to SanFran Outlets… Checked Williamsburg, VA “Premium Outlets” — not finding it there either (yet). William, did your link come from a forwarded local email/newsletter link? Perhaps this will show up elsewhere — or may be a very narrow Bay area promo. (?)

I have two premium outlets near me and checked their sites, nothing. But to be fair the San Francisco site doesn’t have it either if pulled up separately from the link so it’s possible we just don’t know yet until 12/1. Something to keep an eye on.

between this, and a possible $1/card discount on the VGCs, december could be quite profitable.

Also: if anyone has the Community America CU credit card, you’re getting 3% cashback all month. So grab yourself tons of free money in December
