Yesterday, I posted two new AMEX offers that are available via Twitter sync: Home Depot and Whole Foods Market.
There are a few other AMEX offers that are interesting to New Yorkers and those in the Tri-state region that are available online at americanexpress.com, i.e., Gracie’s Marketplace and Fairway Market. The offer for both of these are: spend $75, get $15 back.
If you have an eligible American Express credit or charge card, go to AmericanExpress Click on “offers” at the bottom of the page, and then click on the offer you wish to register for.
Maximizing the Fairway Market Offer – Spin the Wheel of Shrimp!
There’s an online contest right now on the Fairway website called Spin the Wheel of Shrimp! (hey, I don’t make these names up!).
Once you click on the Wheel of Shrimp, it will ask you for your mobile phone number and to select which store you shop at. A few minutes later, you’ll receive a text message, and an opportunity to spin the Wheel of Shrimp.
I spun it, and I “won” a coupon for $15 off $80 (expires May 23, 2015). The coupon was promptly texted to me.
So, if I were to register for the AMEX Fairway offer, then go to Fairway and make a purchase of $90, I would get $15 off per the “Wheel of Shrimp” coupon, bringing the charge down to $75. I would also get $15 back per the AMEX offer.
Thus, I will get $30 off of $90, rather than $15 off of $75, or a savings of 33%. (Note that the Fairway coupon says it cannot be used on gift cards or alcoholic beverages).
