$25 Off $75 at Amazon Via Amex Sync Amazon

Amex Sync is on fire lately. Last week, I wrote about how you can get 45% off your shopping at Kmart or Sears by utilizing Amex Sync and a cash back portal. The latest deal is the Amex Sync Amazon deal where until 12/31/13, you get a $25 statement credit after spending $75 or more at Amazon. The best part is you can buy a $75 gift card (electronic or physical) and essentially get 33% off your future Amazon shopping.

You will of course need American Express credit cards. The more, the better, since you can get the Amex Sync Amazon deal once per American Express credit card. My wife and I have 10 American Express credit cards between us so we bought 10 $75 Amazon electronic gift cards, which essentially means our next $750 in Amazon purchases will only cost $500. Some great American Express cards to use include the American Express Starwood credit card and the American Express Starwood Business credit card. On each card, you will earn 30,000 Starwood points after spending $5,000 within 6 months (25,000 points signup bonus on top of the 5,000 points for spending).

Step 6: Go to Amazon Gift Cards or Amazon Electronic Gift Cards. As mentioned earlier, you can buy either an electronic gift card or a physical gift card. If you buy a physical gift card, it comes in a gift box with a bow, and you get free one-day shipping!

Step 7 (optional): After you get your $25 statement credit, you can use the original link you used to sync your card to now UNsync your card. You can also go into your Twitter account and revoke access for the American Express Twitter app.

 

The Main Point

Amazon is great for purchasing wedding registry gifts as well as supplies/appliances after you get married and decide to move. I still think the American Express Starwood credit card and American Express Starwood Business credit card are two of the best cards to use in the Amex Sync Amazon deal but there are many other American Express credit cards that offer big signup bonuses as well. As you can see from the plethora of Amex Sync deals lately, it’s always good to have some American Express credit cards lying around so consider some American Express credit cards with no annual fee as well.
