Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.
Editor’s Note: This limited-time iTunes offer has expired.
Here’s a bit of Friday fun… From now through March 15th, you can get five free songs via iTunes by registering your American Express card through this link. This is a promo for existing cardholders, not a signup bonus.
To participate, simply click this link, register your American Express credit card, and use it to buy five songs via iTunes. That’s it. You should get a statement credit equal in value to the cost of those five song downloads within five business days.
A few thoughts…
This appears to be a “no strings attached” offer. Presumably they’re just trying to get people to use their cards, and to switch their iTunes accounts over to an AmEx card from whatever card might be hooked to it right now.
It’s unclear to me that they’ll actually be able to limit this to song downloads. It seems fairly likely (though I haven’t confirmed this) that a purchase of five similarly priced apps via the iTunes store would trigger the statement credit. If anyone knows for sure, please let us know.
The offer details specify that you’re limited to one statement credit “per registered card.” As you may have noticed, when you have multiple cards issued on a single account, they have different numbers. I have no idea if you’ll get multiple credit if you do this with multiple cards on one account.
If you have an existing balance in your iTunes account, I’m not sure if you can elect to pay with a credit card instead. As it turns out, I have a $10 credit from an iTunes gift card that I got in connection with an unrelated promo. It looks like I’ll have to use that up before I’ll be eligible for the free songs. Oh well.
Finally, if you’re worried about AmEx holding up their end of the bargain, keep in mind that a number of us participated in (and received the $25 credit for) their Small Business Saturday promo late last year.
