Great Deal: $20 Back On $100 Or More At City Sports And Other Discounts

Amex Offer
Written by Charlie

Here is a new Amex Offer that has been loaded for customers. This is a repeat from last November and a great chance to get quality running gear for 20% cash back.

$20 Back On $100 Or More At City Sports

It is with the store city sports (with retail locations in many cities around America) and works online as well as in store. By carefully planning your approach, you can actually maximize this offer to get 20% off on anything you are going to buy from them – even for items up to hundreds of dollars!

Amex Offer

Get $20 back on $100 purchase from City Sports


  • $20 back on $100 purchase – limited one offer per card (but you can use multiple cards using the tactic below)
  • Expires 3/16/2015
  • In-store or online
  • Limited enrollment (in other words, save it to your cards now)

Getting the Offer

Log in to your American Express account and scroll down to the bottom. You will see Amex Offers For You. Select it 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.

If you save the offer to multiple cards, you will be able to purchase multiple gift cards at $100 each (and receive the $20 credit back on each card you use).

Maximizing the Offer

So, when I say that you can get 20% off, you can make that 20% off anything if you buy City Sports gift cards. Buying $500 in gift cards ($100 gift card with each Amex card that you have saved the offer to – only one discount per card) will trigger a total of $100 in cash back from Amex. If you use those gift cards to purchase something like the GoPro HERO4 Black, you can get a cheaper price from them than anywhere else.

Garmin 910XT for $237

Amex Offer

Get the Garmin 910XT for $237!

There are discounts you can use at this store, including one for clearance that will take 15% off – TAKE15. One of the best items in the clearance department is the Garmin 910XT. Now, if you include that watch in your cart alone, the TAKE15 code will not work – it remains at the clearance price of $349. It will work, however, if you place another clearance item in your cart as well. Doing that brings the cost of the Garmin 910XT down to $297.

But, that is not all! If you purchase 3 separate $100 gift cards with your Amex cards that you saved the offer to, you will have received cash back on those cards bringing your out-of-pocket total for the watch to $237!

Obviously, Garmins are not the only deal. My favorite shoe, the Asics Kayano, are available in the clearance section. Using the discount code brings the shoes down to $85 each – buying up to $100 of gear gives you another $20 back from the Amex offer!
