New Amex Offers

There have been some new Amex Offers that popped up over the last week or so but I did not think any of them were important for a post by themselves. But, there were a couple of new ones this morning that could be of interest so I rolled them all in.

Discount On Gift Cards

eBay has another round of gift cards available for restaurants, a hotel chain, sporting goods store, and a gas station.

Best Price On Amazon Fire Phone and Prime

With Amazon no longer developing Fire phones, this phone is only going to keep getting cheaper until the stock runs out. However, I thought it was notable that this price is the lowest ever as is the 64GB version. With both of these phones come a year’s worth of Amazon Prime (a savings of $99) so you are getting a great deal whether you keep the phone or sell the phone.

Do take note – this phone is going to come locked to AT&T but will have the unlock code so you can unlock it for use on any compatible GSM carrier.

With the eBay items, make sure you are signed up for eBay Bucks to earn a rebate towards future purchases.
