Now that 40k To Far Away is over, it’s time to get back to our regular scheduled programming. Quite a few decent Amex Offers appeared while we were away, one of which offered $15 back or 1,500 Membership Rewards when buying $100+ of Happy gift cards from HappyCards.com.
- Buy $100+ on Happy gift cards at HappyCards.com and get $15 back, or
- Buy $100+ on Happy gift cards at HappyCards.com and get 1,500 Membership Rewards
- Expires December 7, 2019.
- Valid on one or more transactions.
- Offer valid online at HappyCards.com US website only.
This is a decent 15% discount on Happy gift cards, or even better than that if you get the Membership Rewards version of the offer and value MR at more than 1cpp. If you’re targeted for both versions of the offer, you should be able to load one of each version of the offer to different cards.
HappyCards.com is listed on the Simply Best Coupons portal, but that redirects to the Happy gift card listings on GiftCards.com. Purchasing from there won’t trigger the Amex Offer, so it’s sadly not possible to also earn portal cashback on the purchase.
Certain brands of Happy gift cards can be used at Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond or Buy Buy Baby to buy third party gift cards. MetaBank added terms earlier this year excluding that, but nothing has been hardcoded as far as I’m aware. Having said that, there have been a few reports of Home Depot draining balances of gift cards purchased using Happy Guy gift cards, so that’s something to be aware of.
The good news is that they’ve just launched a new Happy brand – Happy Holidays. That includes both GameStop and Lowe’s as eligible retailers which is good news as Lowe’s stores in particular tend to have a much better third party gift card rack than Home Depot. For example, they usually have both Visa and Mastercard gift cards, Amazon, Kroger, Giant and other grocery stores, so this is a great opportunity to buy those at a 15% discount.
