American Express Giveaway

Win A $250 American Express Rewards Gift Card

My favorite part about back to school was always refreshing my wardrobe with a few new pieces every fall. Is there anything more important that first week than organizing your Monday through Friday outfits lol?

American Express challenged me to put together an entire back to school wardrobe including apparel, accessories, shoes, a backpack, and a gift card for school supplies using up to 50,000 Membership Reward points, or the equivalent of $500. My favorite pick is the biker poncho – when I realized it was only $35, I couldn’t add it to my cart fast enough!

Check out American Express’ back to school selections for cashing in your Membership Reward points, and refer friends to American Express to earn even more rewards!

American Express 250 Gift Card Giveaway

American Express $250 Holiday Gift Card Giveaway

We have a winner for our American Express $250 holiday gift card giveaway! And the winner is… Tabathia B! Congratulations and we’ll contact you shortly to get you set up with your prize. I can’t wait to hear what you spend your gift card on, and don’t forget to “shop smart” this holiday season! Thanks so much to everyone that entered.

And now for my challenge! American Express was nice enough to send me a $250 gift card as well, in addition to 40,000 Membership Reward points. My goal was to shop for 5 loved ones and pick up one gift from a small business on Small Business Saturday. I can’t tell you who I shopped for because they may read this post and ruin the surprise, but I can tell you that I shopped for a beauty maven, college student, a fashionista, a techie, and a baker.

I had no idea how far a $250 gift card and 40,000 membership rewards points could go! I thought I was just going to pick up one gift each for my 5 friends and family, but I was able to go all out for each of them. 40,000 Membership Reward points is approximately $400, and you can cash them in on so many amazing gifts and/or gift cards. To keep it simple, I hooked up my rewards account to my Amazon.com account and had a blast cashing in my points.

I was also excited to spend a little at one of my favorite small businesses, Pink Thread Boutique, on these amazing Spike Chandelier Earrings. Check out Lindsey’s shop for an amazing selection of on-trend, yet affordable fashion.

I picked up everything above and still had a bit of change left over. Remember, the challenge was to get all I could, without going over my budget. My $250 gift card purchases came to $248.43 and my $400 in Reward Points (all spent at Amazon.com) came to a total of $397.45!

Have you finished up your Christmas shopping yet? Have any great gift ideas you’d like to share?

$250 American Express Gift Card

The holiday shopping season is in full effect. Have you started knocking out your gift list yet? Have you even started a list lol? I really hoped I could say “one and done” this year by having all of my presents purchased and wrapped by December 1, but I had no such luck! I may not be on schedule, but I will still take the time do my homework and shop smart this, and every, holiday season!

I’ve teamed up with American Express to offer up a “Holiday Shopping Challenge” for a chance to win the gift card of your choice valued at $250! The goal is to educate my savvy readers, and for my readers to educate each other, on the benefits of smart shopping. The following are a few of my tips for staying within your budget this holiday season.

Holiday Budget Shopping Tips

  • Always Know Your Limits – Start with an overall budget and then come up with an itemized spending limit per each person on your list.
  • Track your spending. It helps to have a spreadsheet that subtracts each dollar spent against your total budget.
  • Online Shopping – I find that a lot of times I can get a better deal online as the market tends to offer more competitive prices. When ordering online, wait for free shipping and if possible, free return shipping.
  • Do Your Homework – Most merchants offer price matching. I always search for deals online for the best price and call a merchant to see if they would honor the same price and they usually will to get your business.
  • Membership Rewards – One of my best tips is to get paid for shopping – earn rewards, not finance charges. I put all of my shopping dollars (gas, food, literally everything) on my American Express Rewards Card. I pay it off at the end of the month so that I do not incur finance charges (which is easy by staying within my budget), and earn Membership Reward points on all dollars spent, so they are essentially “paying me” to use their card. The rewards I earn can be put towards saving on future purchases. Membership rewards are an amazing way to stretch my holiday shopping budget even further.

It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the spirit of holiday shopping with all of the beautiful lights, music and smell in every store. For this reason alone, I try my best to get all of my shopping online so that I do not give in to temptation. In fact, I don’t even bother with Black Friday deals when I can usually get a better deal on Cyber Monday, with free shipping, and avoid the crazy crowds.

My Holiday Shopping Challenge

When I host these contests, I always get so jealous of my readers and wish I could win the giveaways too. Well guess what, American Express is also giving me a $250 gift card and 40,000 membership rewards. My challenge is to cash in my gift card and points on 5 of my loved ones, without going over this budget. Check back next week to find out who won this contest and check out what I picked up for my friends and family, including an item I purchased at Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday is the day we celebrated the “Shop Small” movement that drove shoppers to local merchants across the U.S.

How To Win

Leave a separate comment for each entry below (comments must be approved). US residence only please. Contest ends at 11:59 pm PST December 8th and a winner will be selected at random on December 9th.

Required (once): Share your personal tips for staying within your holiday budget for a chance to win a gift card of your choice valued at $250!

Additional Chances to Win (optional): – Tweet and/or Facebook a budget tip (up to once daily) and comment to this post to let us know you have done so.
