Tis the Season to Giveaway a $200 Gift Card from American Express

by Alice Currah on December 21, 2011. Updated December 25, 2011

In 2008 Groupon launched an innovative way to buy deep discounted vouchers for everyday services like haircuts, spa treatments, housecleaning, restaurants, shopping, travel tours, and many other services.  From paper certificates to their Groupon iPhone app, finding and redeeming discounts for places you love to eat, shop, or utilize has never been easier.  Groupon has become a household name for finding the deals you want at the prices you love.  I love taking advantage of Groupon deals for my family!

As Christmas approaches and the stress of last-minute holiday gift buying increases, Groupon e-gift cards would make the perfect stocking stuffer or holiday gift for your friends, family, teachers,  colleagues, neighbors, and just about anyone.  No need to fight for the last and only parking spot at the mall or wait in long lines to buy the not-so-perfect gift because you waited till the last minute.  Instead, you can relax with a cup of coffee and print out a Groupon e-gift card which can immediately be used for whatever Groupon deal appeals to you for the day it’s offered. 

Instead of buying more “stuff”, consider gifting Groupon e-gift cards towards experiences your loved ones use daily.

American Express has partnered with Groupon to now offer their American Express Rewards card members the opportunity to redeem their American Express rewards points towards Groupon gift cards for as little as 1500 points (equivalent to $15). Details can be found here.

To celebrate this partnership, American Express would love to gift one of you a $200 Groupon gift card for the holidays! Think of how many pedicures, travel excursions, and fancy dinners you could experience with $200 worth of Groupons!

All you have to do is leave a comment sharing your favorite holiday Groupon experience or tell me how you would use a $200 Groupon gift card.  One entry per person and each entrant must reside in the US.  Contest will close Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 2011 at 9pm PST. One winner will be chosen at random and notified by email.  The contest is now closed. Congrats to Kiersten!

If you would like an additional entry,http://twitter.com/savorysweetlifeand tweet me telling what your favorite Groupon has been so far.  Make sure to use the hashtags #AmexGroupon #Win$200GC . 

Good luck everyone!  Don’t forget to redeem your Amex Reward Points to get your Groupon on!

Many thanks to American Express for sponsoring this giftaway!

I’d certainly want to try a new restaurant!


Dee December 23, 2011 at 10:42 am

I chose the second tweet option because I just joined groupon and tweeted here: https://twitter.com/#!/DeeGee13/status/150239416437321728 thanks for the chance! :)

I love the gift of experiences…..#AmexGroupon #Win$200GC


TinaD December 23, 2011 at 11:50 am

I would spend it on re-organizing my kitchen pantry!


Karissa December 23, 2011 at 12:07 pm

I love Groupons! I would use this for a getaway for me and the hubby!


Emily g December 23, 2011 at 12:46 pm

I would use it to take a great trip with my hubby–groupon offers so many great deals to fab places!


TrishInFL December 23, 2011 at 1:59 pm

I would buy my daughter the Lalaloopsy Silly Hair doll, and some accessories to go with it :-)


Trista December 23, 2011 at 2:15 pm

Whole Foods groupon, always, for fancy salts!


Mariya December 23, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Old Navy groupons are awesome!


Ilene December 23, 2011 at 3:39 pm

Id try a new restaurant


Grace December 23, 2011 at 3:59 pm

Shop, eat, play, and relax!


lisa hanscom December 23, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Loved sharing 12 cupcakes purchased with a groupon from Cupcake Royale with my four awesome kids!


Tina "The Book Lady" December 23, 2011 at 7:44 pm

I would use this GC to pay down on a medical bill I have. my Dr has been so kind and helpful while I’ve been laid off this year & dealing with weekly Dr visits – and I’d like to get at least a little caught up.

Thanks for the opportunity.


Tina "The Book Lady" December 23, 2011 at 7:46 pm

I’ve never had a groupon – would love one for a massage or a FREE hotel room. Does this GC HAVE to be used for a Groupon – or can we use it on anything we want (groceries, Dr bills, etc)?

We just ate at a relatively new local restaurant the other night using a Groupon. We love our Groupons!


Lynne December 23, 2011 at 11:24 pm

My favorite Groupon Christmas experience actually benefitted me. My mother-in-law had given me $25 and told me to put it towards a new piece of clothing from Coldwater Creek, as she knows I really like that store. I was able to use that money to buy a Groupon worth $50 at Coldwater Creek. The Groupon could be used for anything on their site, so I was able to browse their clearance/outlet section and ended up getting over $100 worth of clothes with my $25 gift.


jennifer lane December 24, 2011 at 12:07 am

My favorite groupon was to the Transportation Museum in St Louis. My grandson and I spent the entire day there!


Charlene Lucas December 24, 2011 at 12:16 am

I think I would need to use it exploring restaurants in the downtown area of Ft. Worth, TX. I love it and there are so many places I haven’t tried yet.


Rebecca A December 24, 2011 at 1:39 am

My favorite groupon coupon was for shutterfly. This was my first introduction to making a book of our family experience to the Galapagos Island with 3 generations in tow. My mom, me and my kids had a great time and now have a lovely shutterfly book to help us relive our special time together. Shared experiences with family keep us close and will last us a lifetime. I would adore making more shutterfly books so my children can relive their time with their family.


Lee December 24, 2011 at 4:16 am

I loved using groupon for a family ice skating outing in Denver.


Gayle December 24, 2011 at 8:06 am

I just used Groupon for sushi at my favorite restaurant and would love to use Groupon again for a massage. I sure need it after all of this holiday shopping!


Shirley Chu December 24, 2011 at 8:48 am

I have never used Groupons but this giveaway will allow me to


Jenna December 24, 2011 at 9:28 am

We would go out to eat-we can’t really afford to try new places, and Groupon makes that easier.


Elisheba Carter December 24, 2011 at 4:32 pm

I would try new restaurants and do adventurous things like hang gliding or driving around in a sports car!


Tammy December 24, 2011 at 4:57 pm

I will use this towards the purchase of a new cell phone or ipad


sam h December 24, 2011 at 5:00 pm

My husband and I have enjoyed the most wonderful meals thanks to groupon! Definitely recommend it to anyone!


Elisa B December 24, 2011 at 5:48 pm

The only time I’ve done something like that was to get a cheap ticket to a wine tasting/food pairing event at a local winery. It was so much fun!


Alez December 24, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Sportations!!!Balloon rides!!!Eeep!!!


Erin from Long Island December 24, 2011 at 11:09 pm

The last groupon I used was for a dry cleaning business. I had several bedspreads washed for a fraction of the cost. Great deal!


Karen Lynch December 25, 2011 at 12:07 pm

Love to use groupons to save money doing things we enjoy. Husband golf, child treats, mom shopping, family movies, restaurants.
