First, this is the last day to enter the inaugural Mommy Points contest. The contest ends at 11:59 CST tonight. In case you aren’t familiar with the contest details, you can get the details here. (Tip….Like Mommy Points on Facebook for an extra entry!) I love how active the Mommy Points community has been this week. You all have done a fantastic job sharing information with each other about the various points and miles deals! I love being a part of such a positive and sharing community.
As most of you all know, this week has been insane for Amex promos! Here is a quick recap of the Amex promos discussed here this week:
- First, there was deal 5721 that granted 10,000 American Express Membership Rewards points per added authorized user. This dead is now pretty much dead as it has come out that the code was targeted to card holders in Argentina. Read more here.
- Next, a deal was discovered (Code 6664) that awarded 10,000 American Express Membership Rewards points if you made 15 transactions on your Amex in a calendar month through November 2011. You can read more about this here.
- Finally, there was a deal today (Code 6661) that grants 75,000 Membership Rewards points. This deal was originally reported to be related to having an authorized user spend $1000 on the card within three months. Several readers and others were able to call in and have it added to their account. After a few failed attempts, it was applied to my mom’s Gold Amex account. She received her sign-up bonus already, and has had her accounts for several months (though they did say she was not eligible for this promo, but they would apply a similar one). There are also many reports that this is a sign-up bonus for new accounts that is completely unrelated to authorized users. This may be 100% the case. However, this deal has worked for multiple people who have already received a sign-up bonus. If you want to call in about this one, I would just ask if 6661 can be applied to your account and see what happens. You can read more about this deal here. 8/13 update, this deal appears to have pretty much dried up according to most reports today. Let me know if you are still having any luck with it. Congrats on all who got in on it!
There has been some discussion on this blog today, especially about the 3rd Amex deal, stating that the information posted here was wrong and causing confusion. Just to clarify, I am in no way associated with Amex, and have no greater access to info about specific deals or codes than anyone else does. I simply share the information that I find on different message boards, and that my readers share with me. If at all possible, I share this information verbatim. Sometimes the deals work, sometimes they don’t. Some reps give very clear explicit information about the deal to one caller, and yet when another caller talks to a different rep, he or she is told something very different. I greatly appreciate everyone who shares info they learn about the various deals and codes, as all the info leads to a clearer picture for all of us.
Thanks again for such a fun and active week on Mommy Points! Check back tomorrow for a video revealing the winner of the contest. We are so excited to have Little C draw the winner! Good luck to everyone and have a great Friday. We are spending ours eating good food and gearing up for the upcoming football season. Go Chiefs and Hook ’em Horns!
