    - Make a $100 purchase at Costco.com (including Costco Cash Card)

    Instead, Sync your Starwood AmEx and use that one at Costco.com, and get a $25 statement credit AND 100 Starpoints.

    Only with two different FB accounts. Each "Link, like, love" Facebook page can have only one AmEx linked to it.

    I synced my SPG last week and got the statement credit. I used my costo GC today actually, nice to get a 25% in store :)

    How long does it take to get the $25 credit? I have been waiting 5 days and nothing.

    Sure, you can unsync here after getting the credit, then sync another AMEX card for another $25 ... lather, rinse & repeat for max results. Done Costco & HH AMEX ... cancelled the SPG one last month!

    Seems new (to me) but you can now get these deals from within you americanexpress.com account as well. You can only redeem each offer once per card so the syncing/unsyncing of your FB account is still the best way to multi-dip

    I purchased a $100 gift card from costco.com on November 4th after doing the sync with AMEX. To date, I haven't received a $25 credit. I called AMEX--who got a Costco representative on the line--and the Costco representative confirmed that I had participated in the sync offer. I then asked why I hadn't been given the $25 credit and he gave me the wait "6 to 8 weeks" line. My question is: should I be patient and wait or should I continue to pursue this?

    Technically, if you're still inside the 6-8 week window, then there's really not much you can pursue that I'm aware of. With almost every company I've worked with, I've received everything I've been entitled to once that 8 week window has passed and I've had to call into a call center about it. You're talking 2 weeks. I'm pretty sure that once your statement for the AMEX you used cycles, you should see your credit. That's how it worked for me last year for Small Business Saturday anyhow.

    That's what I figured. It is just frustrating because so many people report getting the $25 credit within days of purchasing the gift card. I'm reluctant to unsync my card and sync another AMEX card until I know that this is working for me.


    FYI: I haven't used the gift card yet. I'm waiting for Costco's holiday sale. Costco usually sells Johnny Walker Blue for around $100.

    Consider that it's entirely possible that they shopped a few days before their statement processed, and thus making it seem like it posts fast, when it was just fortunate timing.

    Give them a call to see if you can get the offer.

    Think you got the last one. I got a message saying that they had reached their limit of synch signups, and the Costco offer no longer appears on the offer page.

    Contact them via email. I didn't get anywhere by phone, but I was given a $25.00 credit after I sent AMEX's sync customer service an email.
