(Hat Tip to Kristin for the email)
Good evening everyone, it was a crazy busy weekend, but I hope this week will be less crazy and more writing-oriented. I am only about a million blog posts behind, but I will find time to get to them all…
Anyway, I’m sure everyone and their mother has gotten in on the Smart & Final AMEX Offer (I actually took my mom to Smart & Final over the weekend to do some “grocery shopping”). I shared my experience purchasing 15+ gift cards at Smart & Final here. Just when I thought I was maximizing my savings, I learn about a new gift card offer…
From now through May 12, you can also receive a $10 off coupon for your next Smart & Final shopping trip after you purchase $50 in participating gift cards (Cold Stone Creamery, JCPenney, Jiffy Lube, Macy’s, Yard House, and Michael’s). I was originally concerned that the $10 discount would lower the purchase price to $40 and not trigger the AMEX Offer, but after reading the terms of the coupon, it says the $10 off coupon is only valid on your next visit, therefore, it will not lower your the initial purchase amount.
As a reminder, Mother’s Day is next Sunday (May 10), and there is no better way to show how much you love your mother than to purchase a participating $50 gift card for only $15 ($50 – $25 AMEX statement credit = $25 – $10 off coupon = $15). She will love your thoughtfulness and your wallet will love your frugality.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great evening everyone!
P.S. The Sam’s Club Groupon offer just got extended for another 24 hours. If you did purchase a $45 Sam’s Club membership, have you already gone to Sam’s Club (in-person) to complete your membership and pick up your $20 gift card and fresh merchandise? Any thoughts on the process would be great to hear. Thank you.
