Note: Registration is already full. If you already registered for the deal via twitter, you can still get the deal.
Until August 29, 2013 you can earn points and profit from Walmart Twitter sync of $15 off $75 or more. Reading the terms and conditions are important:
Not valid in-store or on gift card reloads & prepaid cards. Walmart.com purchases paid by Pay With Cash option are excluded from this offer. If you order an item during the offer period but it is not sent until after 8/29/13, it may not count towards determining whether your purchase qualifies for the offer. Enrollment for the offer is limited. Limit 1 statement credit per American Express Card across all American Express offer channels. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 8 weeks after American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from the merchant until all of the items from your qualifying purchase have been provided or shipped by the merchant. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you will not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it.

As you can see, it says nothing about Walmart gift cards in the fine print. Therefore, it is safe to assume that Walmart gift cards are valid. I was able to buy a $76 Walmart e-gift card and received a confirmation of $15 off within a couple minutes of ordering.
Here are the steps to take advantage of the Walmart Twitter sync deal:
- Click here and sync your Amex card to your Twitter account. If you forgot which card you synced, go here to unsync your card and resync again.
- From your Twitter account, tweet #AmexWalmart to add the offer to your synced Amex Card
- Note, be sure that you receive an “@ reply” message from @AmexSync stating that this offer has been added to your synced Card
- Make a single purchase of $75 or more with your synced card at Walmart.com by August 29, 2013.
- A statement credit should be issued within 8 weeks after your qualifying purchase.
From my experience, step #4 usually takes about a week to show up on your account. I’ve never had a sync’d twitter deal fail me, so this should be a good one. I’ve also sync’d and resync’d multiple AMEX cards to get the offer on multiple AMEX cards in the past. However, I would wait until you get your $15 credit before trying. I will keep you updated if unsyncing and syncing another card works.
How to Earn Points and Profit
If you don’t shop at Walmart, you could earn a few extra bucks and points from using your AMEX SPG card or other AMEX card. Right now, Cardpool buys Walmart physical gift cards at 92% of face value. In addition, you can earn 4% Topcashback (my referral link) if you haven’t had purchases or sales over $1,000 yet. Here is an example scenario:
- $76 Walmart gift card sold at 92% = $69.92 sale – $76 – $15 (Twitter) = $8.92
- Possible 4% Topcashback = $69.92 * 4% = $2.80
- Total = $11.71
- Plus 61 SPG points or other. AMEX SPG would be my card of choice for this promo because it gives the most value.
Although it may not be much, if you are able to do this multiple times over multiple AMEX cards, it might be worth your time. Of course, spending at Walmart would probably give the best value if you normally shop there.
Even though this promo ends August 29, in the past, deals like this may end early due to limited participation. I suggest you be proactive and take advantage of it now. I will let you know when my credit posts and if it’s possible to resync another card.
