Good morning everyone, this post has a lot of screenshots showing the entire ordering process to complete the SamsClub.com AMEX Offer. As a refresher, the AMEX Offer will give you a $20 statement credit after spending $20 or more on SamsClub.com (does not work for in-store purchases).
A few days ago, I purchased a discounted Sam’s Club membership on Groupon and went to the store to activate my membership. Please read about my Sam’s Club Groupon Membership and Crazy Checkout Experience before continuing. When I got home, I was able to create a SamsClub.com online account using my Sam’s Club membership information.
Enter your email address and create a password.
Sam’sClub.com account created and my Sam’s Club membership expires on May 4, 2016.
Go to the gift card section by clicking on the Sam’s Club logo, then click on Jewelry, Flowers, & Gifts, and then click on Gift Cards.
Find the gift card you want. Some gift cards are only available for email delivery (Sam’s Club membership might be required) and some other gift cards are only available for free shipping. I found a $25 Darden eGift Card for $23.98. Darden is a restaurant group that manages Olive Garden, Seasons 52, Yard House, and other restaurants. This egift card can be used at any of their restaurants.
After adding the egift card to my shopping card, click Begin Checkout.
Sign into your Sam’s Club account.
For email delivery, make sure the email address is correct and click Continue.
Add a credit card (probably an AMEX credit card to complete the AMEX Offer).
Enter the 4 digit security code and click Continue.
Review your order by checking the email address, gift card details, and payment method. If everything looks right, click Place Order.
Your order is complete and your credit card will be charged.
You can view all online orders by clicking on My Account, then click My Orders. Your orders may not show up until you click View These Orders.
Automated confirmation email from Sam’s Club.
Egift cards should arrive within 20 minutes (except for Sam’s Club eGift Card). Here is what the Darden eGift Card looks like. Remember to print these out and take them to the restaurant.
Immediately after placing your online order, you may see that the charge shows up as “SAMSCLUB COM ONLINE PHOTO.” You will not receive an email from AMEX thanking you for using your enrolled credit card. This is normal. Just wait a few days and you should see the charge and statement credit go through as usual.
Here is what the statement credit looks like when it posts to your AMEX account.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great weekend everyone!
