Christmas Deals to Save You Money While Holiday Shopping

November 25, 2008

Christmas deals are everywhere in days before Black Friday and the month leading up to the biggest gift giving event of the year.  Sometimes retailers get pretty creative with their holiday promotions and sometimes they simply offer good old discounts.  Here are a few I’ve noticed mentioned around the web recently:

American Express $20 Cashback

Wal-Mart has teamed up with American Express to give you $20 cashback on your Am Ex card when you enroll your card and spend $40 at Wal-Mart two times over the holidays.  Thanks to Sun for bringing this $20 cashback deal to my attention.

Sun’s going to enroll his AmEx True Earnings card, I’ll probably use my AmEx Blue Cash card.  The deal results in $20 credited to your statement.  If you’ll be doing any shopping at Wal-Mart this shopping season you could save $20 with this one. Gift Certificate Discounts has been offering some pretty significant discounts lately, apparently many people like to give these as gifts or stocking stuffers. The 80% off promotion that the Digerati Life wrote about has ended but they’ve already launched another deal for 70% off either their Dinner of the Month Club or a $25 Gift Certificate. 

Use this link and the promo code of THANKS for 75% off.

Discover Card Signup Bonus

The deals above offer you cashback when you spend or a big discount, this one simply gives you cashback when you signup for a Discover card and spend $500 in the first 3 months.

This week, Five Cent Nickel alerted me to a business bonus, you can earn $100 cashback when you signup for a Discover Business Card.
