Good evening everyone, I hope you are all having a great holiday season. Tomorrow afternoon, I will fly from LGB (Long Beach) to JFK (New York City) to spend New Year’s in New York City. But before I start packing all my warmest winter clothes, I braved the low 60 degree weather in SoCal to visit my local Lowe’s. I had the below Lowe’s AMEX Offer ($10 off $50) added to 4 of my AMEX cards and I still needed to do some gift card shopping. If you have this AMEX Offer linked to your cards and have not met the spending requirement, you only have a few days left since the offer ends on December 31, 2016. As long as the charge is authorized on/by 12/31, you will receive the statement credit.
I ended up buying a $200 Amazon Gift Card and doing a split tender at the register to charge $50 to all 4 AMEX cards.
Here is what the receipt looks like with the 4 $50 split tender payments.
I instantly received notifications on my iPhone from the AMEX app and email receipts as soon as each $50 charge was authorized. The entire process took about 2-3 minutes and the cashier was very helpful.
Quick tip: I never assume the cashier knows how to do a split tender payment, so I usually intend on buying each gift card separately. If the cashier seems knowledgeable and friendly, I ask them if they can do split tender and if they say yes, I proceed with the split tender payments.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
