Sorry, Dell offer now says "sorry, max # of Cardmembers have enrolled in #AmexDellOffer. Visit http://aexp.co/faves for more offers".
If you have already tweeted/enrolled, you are still good and have until 12/31 to use your enrolled Dell offer.


I was looking through the lastest batch of Amex Twitter links (by simply incrementing the last digit in the URL starting from 0001), and came across this. This hasn't been announced officially at https://twitter.com/AmericanExpress/favorites, but apparently this is already working. See Wiki for more info.

Receive a one-time $150 statement credit when you spend $599 or more (in a single purchase) at Dell.com by 12/31/2012. Tweet using #AmexDellOffer to add this offer to your synced American Express Card. This offers does not require a coupon at the point of sale - so once you’ve received a confirmation “@ reply” message from our Twitter handle @amexsync that the offer has been added, just shop with your synced Card to redeem!
. . .
(iv) you must use your synced Card to make a purchase of $599 or more online at the listed merchant by 12/31/2012.
. . .
Limit 1 statement credit per American Express Card across all American Express offer channels. (Offer channels include Twitter, Facebook, App, My Offers tab in Amex account, etc.)
Similar deal last time:
http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/76254


Steps (Twitter method, because not all Amex accounts have a My Offers tab, and even if you have a My Offers tab this offer may not be under it):
  • Sync your Amex card if your card is not already synced: http://sync.americanexpress.com/twitter
  • Click https://sync.americanexpress.com/...F123270004 to tweet:
    • Click "Tweet" icon.
    • Enter username/email, password, click "Sign in and Tweet".
  • Go to "twitter.com" to verify:
    • Click "@ Connect" on top. (May also need to click "Mentions".)
    • Make sure you see "@<you> thx for enrolling in #AmexDellOffer. Spend w/ synced Card & receive credit. See terms: http://amex.co/TiJRTi"
  • Buy from Dell by 12/31.
    • Single purchase must be $599+. You can pad your order with GCs or whatever, or order all GCs, as long as the total (after discounts, taxes, shipping, whatever) that hits Amex is $599+.
    • After you make your purchase at Dell, the "Thanks for using your synced Card!‏" email from Amex does not show the amount. This is normal now.
    • You should be able to consolidate GCs here: http://buygconline.com/consolidation/index.aspx

Dell GC
From http://content.dell.com/us/en/hom...rd-us.aspx you can:
  • Mail a Gift Card (5th item down) (Note: eGC does NOT work because it goes to cashstar.com)
  • Check Your Balance (on right)
  • Consolidate Your Gift Cards (on right)

Twitter is not necessary. This can also be added to your card via Amex iOS app.

You can do it via the website as well. No Apple product or facebook\twitter required. They also have a $10 off $10 HSN deal for what that is worth.

So pretty much buy item(s) for $599. Resell on ebay. Get statement credit. Profit

Depends on what you get and how much you can mark it up (if anything) imo. After ebay fees, paypal fees and shipping fees, a 25% profit will quickly go down towards single digits imo and that assumes you can get the buyer to pay part of the shipping costs. If you take a $600 desktop for instance and have to ship it across the country (worst case) and insure it for $600, I would guess you would be closing in on break even\low single digit profit.

Nice...

...Why buy the extra in gift cards though? You could have charged the extra $150 directly to your credit card and gotten 15% back via Discover (10% ShopDiscover+5% Discover card through end of year) and saved another $22.50 when you make the purchase (to say nothing about not having to be stuck with the extra gift cards since it is a pain to use more than one at a time on a single purchase (you have to do it over the phone)).

Can someone verify posting in the wiki whether or not this applies to the dell outlet as well?

OP, this feels like a long toughdown Smilie thanks!

According to people who got in on the last similar AMEX-Dell-Twitter deal, the dell outlet counts. It makes sense because dell.com/outlet is still technically dell.com Smilie

AMEX immediately emailed me to tell me that they prevented the transaction from going through, so I had to call the fraud department to tell them to ease up and let it go through, and then re-ordered my item. Smilie

My math was off as he would need to put 600 on Amex not 500 so he anything above that (50 dollars in this instance not 150) he could get an extra 15% on via Discover.

Another options for people here would be to sell the gift cards to cardpool or abcgiftcards.

If you get $650 worth of gift cards (Assuming the extra 10% code mentioned earlier in the thread works)
they will pay you $546 for them.

As we would only be paying $450 for them, that is a $104 profit. Now if you have multiple Amex cards, you can double/triple/etc that price.
