Not to be outdone by Chase’s recent Ultimate Rewards promotions, American Express has partnered up with Twitter to offer savings with numerous merchants, including Whole Foods, FedEx and Best Buy. For a complete rundown of these offers, we refer you to The Points Guy’s recent post on the subject.
While most of the deals have received a fair amount of press, we’d like to point out a special offer that seems to have been less broadly publicized: Amex has yet again teamed up with Mercedes-Benz to offer an incredible discount for its members. Cardholders who tweet “#AmexMercedes5” will save $5 on any single purchase made with Mercedes-Benz of $125,000 or more. Like the Mercedes-Benz Platinum card, this deal provides a fantastic bonus for anyone already planning to purchase a new Benz, which we assume is a large proportion of our readers.
Attainable with Amex!
We can only hope that the Mercedes promotion is an indication that Amex will expand the Twitter partnership to include more luxury brands in the future. As good as it feels now to buy those new Dolce & Gabana stone-washed calf leather Mocassins, it will be just that much sweeter when you know you’re also saving money thanks to Amex.
