Macy’s Amex Offer
Macy’s and American Express have released a new targeted offer that could be of use to some. Let’s take a look.

How to Load
Similar to the November, 2016 Macy’s offer, this is somewhat targeted, but I did receive it on most of my personal cards. You have to go to the Amex website or app to load it to your card(s).
15% off at Macy’s might not seem like much on the surface, but they often run 15-25% off coupons plus they have been known to have the occasional monster portal bonus. I have seen 10X+ from mileage portals and up to 15% cashback before. In other words, you can stack this with other promotions they may run for Labor Day, etc. Also, depending on your bulk relationships, you might be able to come close to breakeven on buying/selling Macy’s gift cards.
Just like last year’s offer, this Macy’s deal has dropped at a strange time, but I’m glad it is back. While it isn’t the best offer of the year, there is some opportunity for personal savings and perhaps even a little gift card dealing.
