Three down, two to go and 25 days left to shop for Christmas. Translation, the kids and hubby’s gifts have been purchased and I only have two more people to shop for, with a little over three weeks to spare! But, the early bird gets the goodies, especially American Express customers!
Its no secret that I love saving money when shopping, especially when buying gifts, the more I save, the more I’m able to spend! I also love to get gifts without ever touching my bank account. Rewards programs, like the American Express Membership Rewards program, make that possible!
Through December, American Express Cardmembers can shop items from favorite brands using their Membership Rewards points in the catalog. There’s something for everyone, with categories like travel, shopping, dining, toys and games, and entertainment!
Now through November 30, you’ll receive 20% off purchases from Michael Kors, Bose, LG, Wine Enthusiast, and Dyson! Of course, you don’t have to use your rewards points on others, there are plenty of cool things
I you would enjoy.
If you prefer to hit the malls and shop at a few of my favorite stores like, Banana Republic, Gap, Old Navy, PBteen®, Pottery Barn®, Pottery Barn Kids®, West Elm® and William-Sonoma®, you can use your rewards there too, with a mobile gift card! American Express Membership Rewards just launched Mobile Gift Cards to make your holiday shopping easier.
