UPDATE: I received my $40 statement credit. Simple and easy. Good luck!
There’s still time to get in on this promotion, but I didn’t want to write about it until I received my credit. As per My Money Blog, you can receive a $40 statement credit after making a $200 purchase at Lowe’s. Technically, this offer is only for targeted American Express Business Platinum holders but I had success with my AmEx Starwood Preferred Guest AND AmEx Premier Rewards Gold cards.
Sorry for the late notice, but the promotion ends on November 15, 2011. You still do have plenty of time to do this though. This should work either in-store or online. Here is how I got the credit by buying a gift card through Big Crumbs.
- Register any AmEx card here – http://www.amexnetwork.com/LowesPlatinum
- Log into your Big Crumbs account and click through to Lowe’s for 1.6% cashback on gift cards
- Purchase a $200 gift card here
- Wait 3-5 days after transaction for $40 statement credit
My email from AmEx alerting me that I would be receiving the $40 statement credit came within 2 days of the gift card purchase. I’m confident that the statement credit will appear and if not, a Secure Message to AmEx should straighten things out.
It’s not a stellar promo, but it’s still a $200 Lowe’s gift card for $156.8 which equals 21.6% savings!
