Sync Your AMEX Card With Your Twitter Account For Instant Deals

Who doesn’t love a good deal? Twitter and American Express have partnered to offer special deals, discounts and coupons in 140-characters or less.

If you’re an AMEX customer and a Twitter user, you’ve got $$ savings at your fingertips.

Visit sync.americanexpress.com/twitter to sync your AMEX card with your Twitter account. Then, you just have to tweet merchant-specific hashtags to load up coupon-less deals onto your card, which will become active the next time you shop at that particular merchant.

AMEX cardholders will see the coupon applied as a discount to their statement within days.

Some of the merchants Twitter users holding AMEX cards can now get discounts at include Best Buy, Dell, FedEx, H&M, McDonald’s, TicketMaster and Whole Foods Market.

Ed Gilligan, Vice Chairman of American Express, explains this new promotion:

“American Express is turning Twitter content into commerce by connecting Cardmembers to merchants and delivering real world value to both. With the continued convergence of online and offline commerce, our closed loop continues to enable us to bring seamless, relevant ways to connect our cardmembers and merchants on the most powerful social and digital platforms.”

You can find a full list of the deals available and the hashtags you need to send out in order to unlock them by visiting @AmericanExpress’s favorite tweets.
