Yesterday I posted on an offer from American Express where you can get a $25 gift card for $15 by syncing your Amex card to Twitter and then tweeting a specific hashtag code. This was not the typical Amex / Twitter syncing offer as you are getting something for a discount to begin with, while in the past you’d pay full price at the merchant and then receive a statement credit for a set dollar amount. Side note: The $25 Amex gift card for $15 is now sold out.
This gift card offer was the first of many offers being presented by American Express. Tomorrow (Wednesday), five more discounted products will be available:
- $149 Amazon Kindle Fire HD (assuming the 16GB version, this is typically $199 on Amazon)
- $179 Sony Action Cam and waterproof headband mount (currently I see the cam going for $179.99 at Sony.com and the headband mount for about $28.99; although there is a wifi and non-wifi version, so not sure which item will be available)
- $80 Urban Zen bracelet designed by Donna Karan (seems like there are a few bracelets in Donna Karan’s collection, so no idea which one will be sold and what the retail cost would be)
- $179 Microsoft Xbox 360 (including a 3-month Xbox Liv subscription, two game tokens and a $29 Xbox controller) (since I have no idea the GB size that will be sold, it is hard to compare, but a 4GB goes for $179 without the extra stuff, and a 250GB console sells for $199)
There will be a different hashtag for each deal (which I will announce and will be available on Amex’s Twitter page). There will be two hashtags to actually purchase the deal, one is a “buy” tag and the other is a “confirm” tag. You’ll have 15 minutes to tweet the confirmation hashtag after getting the confirmation tweet from Twitter on the “buy” hashtag. All items will be processed by American Express and will be shipped using free 2-day shipping. Keep in mind, the current going price I noted above for each item were done with a quick google search and you might be able to find a better price elsewhere. I also do not know if tax will be included or not included in the Amex Twitter Sync promotion prices, so that could result in even higher savings.
All discounted products will be available starting tomorrow at 12pm EST and will be available until March 3rd, but chances are they will be sold out far before that deadline (and probably within an hour or two, if that). Might as well sync your American Express credit card to Twitter now in preparation. You can check all of the Amex promotions here, but I will also be tweeting with a reminder when they go on sale and you can follow me on Twitter here.
