How to Load
Thankfully unlike some recent targeted offers, this Sears Amex Offer is available for all accounts. You can load it via the American Express website, the app or via social media. The easiest way to load it is via Twitter by tweeting #AmexSears from a linked account.
The name of the game here is the Sears e-Gift card. Sears physical gift cards somehow code as coming from Kmart so those won’t work, but buying an e-Gift card or even reloading an existing e-Gift card should trigger this offer. Thus, you are getting 20%+ off gift cards at Sears which is very nice, but it has the potential to get better.
Portals have been known to possibly payout for e-Gift card purchases and reloads at Sears. It isn’t guaranteed, but probably is worth a shot. Greg the Frequent Miler is running an experiment so stay tuned for the results. He has already confirmed that buying and reloading e-Gift cards triggers the “Congratulations” email from Amex.
This is a great deal and one that I think many people could benefit from taking advantage of. The cards can be sold for 84-86% meaning there is the potential to make a few bucks as well as credit card rewards. You can of course also use them to save with Sears and don’t forget 100% back in points deals. I wouldn’t plan to hold on to them for too long due to the company’s financial situation, but I will still be buying. How about you?
