I like it when our favorite brands (be it credit card companies, airlines, hotels, etc) give some deals or discounts on athletic items. Today, the latest Amex Offer is perfect for the cyclist looking for a great deal.
Great Amex Offer For Cyclists
Getting the Offer
Log in to your American Express account and scroll down to the bottom. You will see Amex Offers & Benefits. Select and add the offers you want to your card. Make sure you make note of which card you save it to.
To maximize it, add the offer to separate cards, simply login to your American Express account and then choose to duplicate the tab (if using Google Chrome) as many times as you have cards. Once they are all open, select a different Amex card in each tab and select to save the offer to the card.
Make sure you save these offers as soon as you can – using the tip above to maximize – as they are limited enrollment and when they are gone, they are gone! Even if they disappear, as long as you have saved the offer, you are all set.
- Spend $175, get $35 back
- Expires 4/17/2016
- Valid online only
Nashbar is a bicycle store that has a lot of gear. If you are into cycling at all, you most likely are familiar with it (unfortunately, I do not have the training time right now for cycling but hopefully someday!) and this is a great chance for you to get the gear you want at a discount.
This offer is available across all of our cards so I would imagine the same is true for you. If that is the case, you can buy gift cards to really maximize your discount. If you wanted something that cost in the $2,000 range, you would essentially $385 back (as long as you had access to that many Amex cards!). That is great by itself but can be very useful when paired up with some more savings.
Of course, you have to consider a shopping portal to start your shopping! TopCashBack is currently offering the most with 7% cashback for Nashbar. So, that is a pretty good head start on your savings!
Next, TopCashBack will give you a code for 10% off your purchases at Nashbar. That will not conflict with your cashback so that is another 10% off you get!
For today only, they are also running a sale of 75% off over 100 items. Not sure if what is available will work for you but definitely give it a look!
Finally, use your gift cards (purchased with your Amex cards that you saved the offer to) or your Amex card and pay! Here is how your total savings will work out:
- Buy something for $200
- Use 10% code – $20 off
- Use Amex Offer – $35 back
- TopCashBack portal – $12.60 back (from the $180 amount)
- Total paid – $132.40 – or 34% off the price everyone else pays!
Amex Offers like this really help to maximize your savings at places where you might not normally get to save that much. This deal is a great one – whether you are a veteran cyclist or someone that wants to start.
