American Express has come out with a slew of offers available for statement credits when you tweet specific hashtags.

The one that is most interesting to me is a $5 statement credit for spending $5 at Dunkin' Donuts.  This can be in store for anything or online to buy gift cards.

Only includes standalone or with Baskin' Robbins stores, but not if it is connected to a gas station or something similar.

Available Deals:

  • Dunkin' Donuts: Spend $5 and get $5 statement credit.  In store and online
    • Tweet: #AmexDunkinDonut;
    • Spend $5 by 6/30/2014
  • $10 statement credit off a $50 online purchase.  Online only.

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