American Express + Twitter = Savings

There’s two ways to spend less money–the easy way and the hard way. The hard way involves cutting back on everything from eating out to buying clothes to taking vacations. The easy way to spend less involves making smart changes that don’t affect your lifestyle, such as refinancing debt to lower rates or comparison shopping for insurance.

And that brings me to American Express and Twitter.

American Express has launched a new program that enables cardholders to get deals on everyday purchases through, of all things, Twitter. Here’s how it works:

  • Sync your eligible American Express® Card with Twitter at
  • Tweet the special offer #hashtags to load exclusive Cardmember offers directly to your Card
  • Save with an automatic statement credit when you make a qualified purchase in store or online with your synced Card

So I linked my Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express to Twitter. It took all of about 60 seconds. And then I retweeted a few deals. And the deals were pretty good, coming from the links of Zappos, McDonald’s, 1-800-Flowers, the Cheesecake Factor, and Whole Foods. Now, all I do is use my Amex card at these retailers, and the deal will be automatically credited to my account.

Here’s a video that better explains how it works:

  2. What a great way for a credit card company to embrace social media. I’m sure other card issuers will follow suit with similar promotions.
