I just finished using the $15 off $75 Home Depot American Express offer on all of my cards and authorized users. I chose to buy Shell gas gift cards and bought a new Lawn Mower.
I first researched a reliable mower as my current Honda lawnmower has had the automatic drive go out and is unfixable. The mower lasted 25 years. I settled on another Honda mower, the HRX217K5VKA, that was top rated by Consumer Reports.
I then went on Ebay and purchased a 10% off Home Depot gift card for $30. As the mower costs $600 and I would save $65 (with tax), I netted a savings of an additional $35. I then purchased Home Depot gift cards with my American Express cards, saving $15 off $75 each time.
Final cost: $650 – $35 savings – $90 savings by purchasing 6 Home Depot cards for a net cost of $525. Best of all, no more backbreaking pushing an old mower – the cost savings on back pain is priceless.
