I’m always looking for ways to stack deals on top of each other. There’s a pretty lucrative deal going on now with Walmart, American Express, and Bluebird.
Step 1. American Express is offering $5 off $15 purchase at walmart.com through December 31st on your synced American Express card. The simplest way is to tweet #AmexWalMart to load this offer to your American Express cards. If you haven’t synced your American Express card to twitter accounts, you can do that here. I have each of my cards and authorized users set up on a separate twitter account which is then synced to TweetDeck which allows you to simultaneously tweet from multiple accounts. When I see a new American Express deal, I can quickly add it to all of my cards.
I have been ordering egift cards of $15 at walmart.com to qualify for the offer. I originally had some problems with Walmart cancelling my orders because of suspected fraud. However, a quick email exchange with them and they allowed my account to order gift cards and there hasn’t been any problems.
These $15 egift cards are immediately sent via email and qualify for the Amex $5 off promotion and can be used online or in store. We use them in store for regular grocery shopping. I’ve ordered 10 egift cards so far on all of my cards and authorized user cards. Therefore $150 in egift cards getting $50 back in statement credits. Bluebird and Serve cards are also eligible for this offer.
Step 2. Sign up for Walmart savings catcher. After you’ve shopped at Walmart using your egift cards, enter in or scan your receipts and Walmart will monitor local competitors and if they find a savings drop on items you’ve purchased, they’ll give you back the difference in egift cards.
Step 3. If you add your Bluebird card to the Walmart savings catcher, they will load the savings to your Bluebird account rather than giving egift cards and double the amount they give you. Thus far we’ve earned $16.00 from doing nothing but scanning our receipts.
In summary, you can save 33% for each egift purchased per card and add additional savings by using your Bluebird card with Savings Catcher. It’s a great way to save some money during the holidays by jumping through some hoops.
