A great offer from the past is back and this is still a great way to stack your Amex card offers to get some great discounts!
Great New Amex Offer for 20% Off Athletic Gear
This is for SwimOulet.com. You may have seen it in your account and passed by it since it is showing Spend $25, get $5 back. Admittedly, that is not a whole lot to get excited about by itself! Also, if you are not a swimmer, the name may have not jumped out at you either.
But, they have a lot of different athletic gear, including some Garmin devices. With this offer and a welcome coupon, you can get 30% off all of this – depending on how many Amex cards you have! 🙂
Step 1 – Sign-Up for Newsletters
By signing up (by using this link to buy something, you will receive $10 off your first purchase and I will as well), you will get a 10% off coupon in your e-mail shortly. You can then use this same e-mail address for the account you will need to setup below. This 10% coupon works on Garmin! This coupon is valid for only 2 weeks so be ready to order!
Step 2 – Save the Amex Offer to Multiple Cards
Important: add the offer to separate cards by simply logging in 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.
Here are the details of this Amex Offer:
- Get a one-time $5 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $25+ in one or more transactions
- Valid online at swimoutlet.com (using that link will give you $10 off your first order and give me $10)
- Expires 6/26/2018
Step 3 – Buy $25 Gift Cards
The gift cards are sold by SwimOutlet.com so they do count for the Amex Offers. I purchased a couple and had the message that I had used my Amex Offer each time. Buy them separately and in $25 amounts.
They say they will be delivered within 1 business day but I got them almost instantly.
Step 4 – Add To Your Account
SwimOutlet is a little different from other retailers. In order to use your gift cards, you must create an account (use the e-mail you started with above) and register/add each gift card to your account. Once you do that, they will easily be applied to your order.
Important – once you add them to an account, they are tied to that e-mail address! So, make sure it is the account you want them with!
Step 5 – Order Away!
When you combine the 10% discount coupon at checkout, you may get an invalid message, but you will see that it has added it to your order. You will have your previously loaded gift cards there as well so you are good to save!
This is a fantastic way to take a seemingly small Amex Offer and turn it into something great! If you have access to 8 Amex cards, that will give you $40 off a $200 purchase. When you combine it with the 10% off new shopper discount, you are looking at a nice $60 off a $200 purchase. Not a bad haul at all!
The Garmin Vivoactive 3 watches are currently on sale for $249 – you should be able to get a nice discount off them using these stacking strategies!
