Today I’ll be going to restaurants to buy gift certificates with my American Express cards. I have five including those issued by American Express and those just processed by American Express–and issued by Citi and Bank of America.
I registered for Small Business Saturday last week RIGHT HERE. Registration is still open today. Try to register all your AMEXes, except your prepaid cards because those won’t work. Then go to one or more small businesses with your card and make $25+ purchases. You will soon see $25 credits on your statement.
I don’t need any more stuff since I am about to move to Argentina, so I will go to restaurants to buy $25 gift certificates for later use.
This is one of the easiest and most lucrative promotions of the year, so take advantage today. And in preparation for a possible return next year, factor in some value to holding onto AMEXes through the annual fee.
Saturday’s winner of the United Club passes was YJ, who has been emailed.
