Amex Offers $25 Amazon Refund On $75 Purchase

The fine folks over at Million Miles Secrets brought our attention to a deal yesterday that blows the Small Business Saturday $10 statement credit out of the water (though we truly did enjoy the nearly free pizza we had on Saturday!)

Now through the end of the year, American Express cardmembers can earn a $25 statement credit (read: refund) just by spending $75 or more on Amazon.com. Considering Amazon essentially sells everything, it shouldn’t be hard to figure out a way to funnel some holiday spend Amazon’s way and effectively get a third off your purchase.

No-Fee American Express Gift Cards Available Now

American Express is currently offering gift cards with no fees for the holidays.

You can use any credit card to purchase the gift cards, which can be valued at $20 all the way up to $3,000.
