A couple of months ago I mentioned that American Express had a new, online payment system called “Serve” and that they were giving away $10 AMEX cards if you signed up. Many of you weren’t able to take advantage because the program didn’t last long, but I’ve just heard that the $10 bonus is BACK!
We got two of these cards from the previous promotion (one per person) and they sure came in handy when I did my Black Friday shopping! The new promotion lasts until January 9, 2012 so just make sure you sign up for an account by then.
Here’s how to do it:
– Create a Serve account. It’s just an name, email address, etc. Although for security purposes you do have to give the last 4 digits of your SSN (there’s no credit check involved)
– Within a couple of hours, Serve will send you an email with instructions on how to claim your $10
– Once you receive the email, log in to your account, click “notifications,” and then click “accept” to claim your $10.
Serve will then send you an American Express/Serve card which you can use at any retailer. Alternatively, you can also request that the $10 be deposited directly into your bank account.
Side note: I have absolutely no relationship with Serve or American Express. Just a freebie alert from me to you.
Good luck Penny Hoarders!
