Speaking of Best Buy… American Express cardholders can now unlock a $20 statement credit when they check in on foursquare and spend $200 at Best Buy stores nationwide. It’s a perfect deal as we gear up for back to school season.
The deal is the latest in a series of credits offered by American Express since last March. To take advantage of the deals, users must sync their American Express cards with foursquare and tap the “load to card” button on the special screen when they check in. A statement credit will appear within 3-5 business days.
By partnering with American Express, Best Buy avoids the requirement of training tens of thousands of cashiers how to redeem a foursquare special. The American Express deals happen solely between foursquare and American Express, so there’s no need for users to show their phones to anyone in a Best Buy store.
The deal runs through September 16. You can find your nearest store by visiting their foursquare page.
