Use Amex Offer to Unlock Another Offer, $30 off $150 at Bloomingdale’s Store

After making a $200 order at bloomingdales.com to take advantage of the Amex Offer there currently, Amex sent me an instant email thanking me for using the Amex Offer. Then they added something I’ve never seen before: “Congrats – You used your Amex Offer and unlocked another.”

I can now use this same card in-store (only) at Bloomingdale’s and get $30 off $150 purchase. The $150 can be made in one transaction or multiple transactions. It’s valid through 10/30/17.

The online offer is way better at $75 off $200 vs the $30 off $150 in-store. Still, the store offer can be useful to some as well after maxing out the online offer. The store offer also has a much longer expiration.

It’s good to keep this kind of thing in mind for the future: check out those emails to see if Amex has more goodies in there for you.

Let us know if you got this follow-up offer as well. I assume it’s being sent to everyone who uses the online offer.

I have 2 AMEX cards and did not received this offer on any of them. So it definitely looks like its targeted to only few.

Thanks for the datapoint, Jerry! Strangely, got the offer on my SPG card’s authorized user card, but not on the primary card, nor on my EveryDay card.

In theory, could you buy something that costs $200 for $95 net (after $75 Amex offer and $30 ebates credit), return the item in store for a $200 store credit, then use the store credit to buy $150 of product in store, and use the $30 off $150 offer?

If so, you would be paying $71.25 for $150 worth of product *and* have $50 in store credit remaining (which you could sell for ~$39), correct?

If that’s correct, you could net $150 worth of product for $32.25 (or 78.5% off) per eligible Amex card, correct?

If that’s all correct, and you want $150 worth of product for $32.25 (78.5% off), could be worth buying $200 worth of product per eligible Amex card.

William, any idea if the $30 off $150 was dependent on purchasing a gift card (versus anything totaling $200)?

The $30 off $150 would have to be used with the Amex card associated with the account. Not the $200 store credit I believe you are alluding to in your example.

Luke, you have really done lots of homework so far. yes returning it back to the store with store credit could be okay. I guess it is possible AMEX can revert back the credit if they get return order information from Bloomingdales later on. Not sure how it works.

But maybe you can refund the $200 to card, ann then spend 200 again to stack the two offers. So your cost is 200-75-50

Six cards and nada. Lol. I think it’s the same last year. All these good offers answers there were none of them in my cards. So I ended up canceling two of them.

It seems like people with business cards get most of the good offers. Seems quite unfair but what can we do?

Is it just me or does it seem like commentators on this site are getting more and more unethical every day?

It’s not just you and it’s not just this site.

I can’t think of anything at Bloomingdales that I need 🙁

For general retailers I can at least stock up on nuts and beef jerky.

the return will result in the Amex offer being reversed.

This could be useful during wedding season for a lot of us.
