Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available – The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card from American Express

Earlier today I wrote about a way to buy select gift cards at for over 50% off by stacking several deals including a new customer sign-up, Amex Offers, free shipping, and potentially even 8% cash back on top of all of that. Unfortunately, the popular gift cards options like Outback sold out shortly after my post went live, but that doesn’t stop this from still being a good deal for many of us. It just means you have to try a little harder and potentially stock your pantry a bit.

I will update if/when the gift cards come back in-stock, but here are eleven other family friendly items you could consider stocking up on at a very real discount once you stack all of the coupons available.

Steps to Save 50% at

  1. Add the Boxed Amex Offer for a $25 statement credit on a $65+ boxed purchase to one (or more) of your Amex cards.
  2. Join via a referral link to save $15 on your first purchase of $60 or more. My code is 0IKMX and thank you if you use it.  If you are an existing customer you can try the coupon codes, FAMILY, H4MWW78X or STAYSTOCKED.
  3. Shop by first going through TopCashBack or eBates to get cash back on your purchase, though coupon codes could invalidate the savings…still worth a shot.
  4. Select your items of choice from You want to get to $65 after your new customer offers or other coupons to trigger the Amex Offer statement credit of $25 on $65+ in purchases.

Assuming you get the $15 new customer discount and the $25 Amex offer you are getting $80 worth of goods for just $40. If you targeted putting right at $80 in your cart before factoring in those savings, you are essentially paying 1/2 of the regular prices listed below + you get three free sample items in your order. I know that’s not the same as gift cards, but it is still pretty great…especially for those with lots of little snacky mouths in the home!

If you don’t have an Amex yet and are missing out on this Amex offer then, please consider getting at least one of their no annual fee cards like The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card so you can join in the savings fun going forward!

In addition to those example items they have all sorts of dry goods, pet products, bathroom products, cleaning products, wine, etc. In other words, it really isn’t too possible to not need anything they sell. I got in on the gift cards with my first order, but I will be placing a second order to save on some of the items mentioned above!
