American Express and - $10 off $50 - Excludes $50 Gift Card Purchases Only

So, this is new...

There are a bunch of new offers available via Twitter and I hope to mention them all at some point, but this one is the most interesting to me.

I hope it isn't a sign of things to come, but I think eventually we will get there.

Spend $50 at (and affiliated websites) and get a $10 statement credit.

Tweet #AmexDiapers

Terms and Conditions are here

The most relevant point to me is that if you make a $50 purchase of gift cards, you won't be eligible for the offer, but if you make a $50 purchase of gift cards and purchase something for $2 as well, you are eligible.  This means AmEx (or more likely some merchants are now reporting) is now starting to look into what you buy.  Hopefully it is not a sign of things to come, but we'll see.

The other offers I looked at so far do not include this languate

Offer Valid 8/3/15 - 9/30/15

Offer valid on a qualifying purchase at and family of brands:,,,,,, and Purchases consisting solely of gift cards are not considered qualifying purchases and are not eligible for the offer. In order to count as a qualifying purchase for the offer, any purchase that contains gift cards must also include other items. If you order an item during the offer period but it is not sent until after 9/30/2015, it may not count towards determining whether the purchase qualifies for the offer.
