Buy a $100 Visa Gift Card for $90.38! Twitter and American Express

Disclaimer: I receive a referral commission for the following link(s): Top Cashback

If you spend $75 or more at on your American Express card, American Express will give you a $15 statement credit.  This works on $100 Visa gift cards which cost $105.38 with free shipping.  After the $15 discount the final price will be $90.38!

You will still get your regular cashback from your American Express card in addition to the credit.

Here's how to do it:

  • Sync your Twitter Account with your American Express credit card
  • Tweet #AmexWalmart
  • Click @connect to confirm you have been enrolled
  • Buy a $100 Visa Gift Card - My email confirmation for the credit came in minutes
    • These are Vanilla Visa gift cards so you will be able to load them onto your Bluebird to pay your credit card bills.  The pin doesn't need to be set ahead of time.  The 4 digits that you choose the first time you use it is the pin. 

You can have Twitter accounts under multiple names (pseudonames are allowed in Twitter) and you can connect a different card to each account.

You can keep records of which card is linked to which account to make it easier. I send myself an email.

You can try to go to Top Cashback first to see if you will get any extra money but their terms and conditions specifically exclude getting cashback from Walmart for buying gift cards.  I did it myself yesterday and I have not received any emails from Top Cashback saying that I will get any money.
