American Express has added quite a few new offers for targeted cardholders in the past few days, many of which can save you money on a gift for your graduating senior. Whether it’s a new laptop, the gift of travel, dorm room supplies, or even crayons, American Express has a money saving offer for you.
The Amex Offers program is one of my favorite credit card perks. You can read my primer on how the program works here. In addition, you can stack these offers with additional cash back or frequent flyer miles by shopping via an online portal.
Once again, most of these offers are targeted. You may see some, none or all of these in your americanexpress.com account.

Get a one-time $150 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $799+ in one or more transactions online at dell.com by 6/12/2016. This offer only appeared on one of my American Express cards, so it appears highly targeted.
Get a one-time $25 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $100+ in one or more transactions online at staples.com by 6/19/2016. The offer terms go on to say, “Not valid for e-gift card purchases.” This is true for Staples e-gift cards, however orders for merchant e-gift cards are getting the credit. I purchased 6 eBay $100 e-gift cards (I’ll write about why in a future post) and received all 6 offer credits.
