Pay ~$12 for $50 Worth of Mother’s Day Gifts at With Amex Offers

I don’t usually post “deals” but I’m feeling mushy and this is a really good one.

If you want to send your Mom (or anyone else) a gift through, there are currently some promotions you can stack for big discounts. Here’s how it works.

Stack it up

To get the best return, you need to have the Amex Offer for $15 off a $50+ purchase on an Amex card (preferably a business card for OPEN savings). It expires July 17th, 2016.

Then, sign up for TopCashback. When you use my link, you’ll get $10 back for your first purchase in addition to the current 20% cashback offer at (and I’ll get $15 for referring your sign-up).

Once you sign up, type in and you’ll see the current 20% cashback offer:


Get 20% cashback, $10 back for your sign-up at TopCashback, and use a 25% promo code

You’ll see lots of promotion codes, including one for 25% off (it expires April 24th, 2016, but there are always lots of codes available). Use a code you find on the TopCashback site. Don’t use any you find elsewhere.

The trick is to find something that’s just over $50 AFTER the promo code is applied. But there are lots of items that’ll get you there:

Lots to choose from

Here’s how it stacks for a $50 purchase:

  • $15 off from Amex Offers
  • $10 off for joining TopCashback
  • $10 off from TopCashback 20% offer
  • $2.50 back from Amex OPEN savings on business cards
  • $50 – $15 – $10 – $10 – ~$3 = ~$12

Even if you don’t stack all of these, there’s no reason why you can’t get half off and save $25+ on a $50 purchase.

I bought this item:


~$54 before all offers

I paid ~$54 to have a gift basket delivered to my Mom the Friday before Mother’s Day (she’ll likely be in church on Sunday and didn’t want to risk a Sunday delivery).

Note that promo codes do NOT work with free Shoprunner shipping. So you have to take it off in your cart. But a 25% promo code should just about cover the shipping charge.

For the ~$54 charge, I’ll get back $15 from Amex, $10 from joining TopCashback, $10 from TopCashback’s 20% deal, and ~$3 from Amex OPEN savings.

Boom! The stack begins

Boom! The stack begins

In the end, I’ll get back $38, for a total of $16 on this item.

$16! That’s a great price for a Mother’s Day present. Not to mention, I’ll get 54 SPG points for the purchase from using my new Amex SPG small biz card.

Bottom line

For my purchase, this stack amounts to a 70% discount. And my Mom gets a Mother’s Day gift.

If you order relatively soon, you should be able to snag a delivery date around Mother’s Day (May 8th this year). And save some serious cash.

To recap, you can stack:

  • $15 off $50+ from Amex Offers at
  • $10 back from joining TopCashback and making a purchase
  • 20% back from TopCashback
  • a 25% off promo code (use one you find on TopCashback)
  • Amex OPEN savings (5% back as a statement credit on Amex business cards)

When you add in the points or miles you’ll also earn, this amounts to a sextuple dip.

This is also a great example of how you can build a stack from Amex Offers. They’re not usually this good, but sometimes worthwhile. Wanted to share this one because it’s timely and awesome.

Also, get your Mom something for Mother’s Day. She deserves it. 🙂
