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 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 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?
