Update: This offer was pulled in advance, but stay tuned for more American Express/Twitter deals.

Right now, you can essentially get $10 for free by purchasing a $25 American Express Gift Card for only $15 by March 3, 2013. Here’s how:

Screen shot 2013-02-11 at 4.08.30 PM

  1. You must have an American Express Card that is synced with Twitter (see sync.americanexpress.com/twitter for more details on how to sync your Card).
  2. You must Tweet using the hashtag #BuyAmexGiftCard25
  3. You must receive a response message from @AmexSync asking you to Tweet #ConfirmAmexGiftCard25
    (though before this step, you might be sent a link from Amex asking you to confirm your billing address and card ID #)
  4. You must confirm your purchase and authorize American Express to charge your Card by Tweeting #ConfirmAmexGiftCard25
  5. You must receive a response message from @AmexSync confirming successful purchase
  6. You must receive a confirmation email from American Express stating that the product has been purchased successfully, including all purchase details.

Once your purchase is confirmed, your product will be shipped via free 2-day shipping to your shipping address.

If you do not receive a response message from @AmexSync or an email from American Express confirming your purchase,  contact them or direct message them at @AskAmex. Quantity is limited. Limit one (1) purchase per Card per product. Products will be shipped via 2-day shipping. The charge will appear on your American Express statement as “Amex Sync via Links.” Program Terms and Conditions apply; click here for details.

It does not appear as if there is any fee to buy the card, and shipping is free, so no hidden fees driving up the cost there. The only thing better than earning points is earning points and getting free money. Essentially you’re getting $10 free by paying $15 for a $25 gift card that you can use just like any other Amex card. For more info, check out this CNN article explaining the partnership.

    A little slow to the game on this one. Offer sold out.

  • Aaron

    It’s dead – I tried it this morning and got this response: Sorry, $25 Amex Gift Card is no longer available. Check out more products & great offers at http://amex.co/faves

  • Steve23

    Do you even bother researching the stuff you post – or does “Copy-Paste” suffice for a TPG blog post these days?

  • Paul

    Hey, at least he H/T’ed this

    Baby steps…

    it takes more than a couple mins to post an article on here; perhaps it worked when he submitted it and filled while composing the article?

    Seems dumb, but why follow a blog if you’re so butthurt about the quality of TPGs postings?

  • Sam

    I was too late! Got this message: Sorry, $25 Amex Gift Card is sold out. Check out more products & great offers at http://amex.co/faves

    Because once upon a time, perhaps before TPG started receiving a regular paycheck from Chase, there was actual value to the posts here. They weren’t slapped together city guides or referral-link bait articles, they were actually interesting. I comment because I want those times back.

    And for the record, the sync had been dead for at least an hour at the time of posting. Had he bothered checking, he would have known this.

    First you pulled your Koh Samui destination of the week post because you were called out for plagarism. Now you’re a day late on what other bloggers already reported.

    This site is starting to go downhill.

  • Guest

    lol @ the update: “Update: This offer was pulled in advance. . .”

    What he means to say is that he didn’t copy/paste it fast enough or check to make sure it worked before plastering it on his site. LOL @ this bozo.

    I always hat tip if information is attributable to a specific source. When I don’t it’s because the information is widely available.

  • thepointsguy

    I got this tip last night as I was on a flight back to the east coast and I wrote up immediately and scheduled it with the morning posts. When I wrote it, the offer was still available and it worked for me – Amex pulled it early. They said quantities were limited but didn’t specify how limited or when it would be pulled, so it’s too bad if you couldn’t get in on it, but it was working.

  • thepointsguy

    The only thing copied here are terms directly from the Amex Sync website because they contain specific instructions, details on shipping and information on what to do if you have questions. All other content or commentary on the promotion itself is original.

  • thepointsguy

    That’s not true – I did check and the offer worked for me. Amex did pull it when the limited quantities ran out and I posted the update.

  • Leigh

    It would be nice if all you critics would just go elsewhere. If you don’t like the blog, don’t read it!! You’re not paying for it and there are plenty of other bloggers. But it sure gets old constantly seeing you whine.

    Thanks, I actually ran across this last night on Twitter. Found it was a little confusing since there were a couple steps to take. But I did work it all out.

  • Jon

    I suppose you could stop reading TPG and read another blog of your choice. Nobody is forcing you to read TPG’s posts. If you don’t like the title of a blog post, skip over it and read what interests you. The guy has to make money some how…and CC links are likely his main source of income.

  • Sam

    I didn’t get the gift card, but I got in on the $149.95 Kindle Fire HD deal. I wouldn’t have known to be on the look out for that one if you and mommypoints hadn’t posted about the gift card. So, thank you! I appreciate you and your blog. :-)

    I would say it’s more Amex’s problem than TPG’s. The links he provided worked when I clicked – it is Amex who decided not to honor it. Pissed me off so much this morning that I had to blog about it. http://www.jeffsetter.com/amex-twitter-sync-rejected/
