Tweeted and received ACK within a couple of minutes.  My local Lowes sells Shell cards, so will give this a shot.  Thanks, OP.
 

Found this same offer when i logged in to my account and looked at "Offers For You". But, I'm not able to save it to my card. It says "Sorry about that! The offer you selected is currently unavailable. Please try again." I guess I'll keep trying. Thanks for the heads up, OP.

Update:  whoop whoop!  I just tried again and was able to add the offer to my card.  Alright!

Twitter is the way to go.

Kev

Awesome - Thank You. Will check it out

Done deal , thx OP!

Thanks...Hope this will work on gift cards.

looks like i'm approved! thanks OP, I need an itunes gift card!

If you want to load this offer across multiple amex cards it might be quicker to use Facebook to sync & unsync various amex cards.

  How do you get them to recognize the post on Facebook?  Post #AmexLowes?

1) First sync with Facebook , show more offers once in facebook , then add the offer to card.

2) Unsync first card , then sync second card and so on.

Already went to Lowes & bought 4 shell $50 GC with 4 Amex cards, Thanks Op!!

I just hate these Twitter / Facebook / Amex deals, just give us a good old coupon for all to abuse.

huh, worked just fine by just signing into Amex site and saving the offered deal there

Just returned from Lowes.  Cashier pitched a fit when I tried to use AMEX for purchase.  I asked for supervisor.  Head cashier pitched a fit AND was an ass.  I asked for manager.  Assistant manager was not happy to hear my experience with head cashier and WAS interested in my explanation that their apparent "store policy" against allowing cc purchased for GCs was silly... I explained that there was ZERO incentive for me to buy a GC at face value.  I could just spend face value at the retailer in question, or better yet, some retailers offered deals on their own GCs.  The value I got from buying GCs from Lowes was the cc offer (I didn't mention the $10 AMEX deal, but just referred to "miles and other offers.").  He got it... though I doubt he's going to singlehandedly change their "store policy."  Anyway, he checked me out... I got an AMEX confirmation email before I made it to my car.

  That most definitely is just the policy for that particular store because I had absolutely no trouble maxing out the Cash Back by buying GCs during Discover's home improvement quarterly category a few months ago.

Agreed, as I have not previously had an issue with it.  A quick poking around on AMEX website also seems to indicate it's a violation of their merchant agreement.  I'll let AMEX know about my experience as well.
From the AMEX merchant agreement--3.1 accepting the Card Merchants must accept the Card as payment for goods and services (other than those goods and services prohibited under section 3.3, “prohibited uses of the Card”) sold, or (if applicable) for charitable contributions made at all Establishments, except as expressly permitted by applicable state statute.

Merchants are jointly and severally liable for the obligations of their Establishments under the Agreement.




 

Not allow credit cards to be used for gift card purchase is a common practice for fraud protection. It's not as bad as it used to be, but you will still find some places hit or miss. It seems to vary location by location and even cashier by cashier. With stores like Lowes, when I get push back the argument I use is " you will sell me a gift card on your website without requiring cash, why is it different in person" this usually causes them to look confused for a second or two then they go ahead and do it

Don't need twitter or facebook. Just log into your AMEX account online and click on offers for you. Its should be the first one. Save offer to card and your all set. Don't know if its targeted, but it showed up for me.

  Most people, like me, don't automatically get those offers. So yes, twitter or facebook are often needed to get these deals.

It's a made up solution to a problem, as your online purchase example points out.  When we allow individual people/stores to create "policy" that isn't based in sound logic, they gain an artificial sense that they are problem-solvers... and go on to create more made up solutions.  Eventually we have ridiculous wives' tale "rules" like waiting 30 minutes after eating to swim and not being able to use cell phones in airplanes.  When you run into stuff like this, I urge you to raise your concerns beyond the cashier... tell the cc issuer, the store corporate HQ, and your state AG office.  Hold them accountable for their behavior.

Just came back from local Lowe's and paid with my AMEX without a problem. The cashier even made a joke about me needing a bag. She checked my license, rung me up and I was on my way. I've never understood the policy of not allowing the purchase of GCs with CCs. If my card matches my license, all should be good. If I was a thief, I most certainly wouldn't be wasting my time buying a $50 Amazon GC at Lowe's.

I once bought a Visa GC at safeway (with a promo), and then tried to use that same Visa GC--which they themselves just sold me (and bought with cash)--to buy a Shell GC.

They said no. Absolutely cannot buy a GC with a CC because of "fraud"

Screw them

technically a visa GC is swiped as credit, and should be accepted in theory. BUT most stores will not allow you to use a giftcard to buy another giftcard. (except if you were breaking up a store gc into smaller denominations).

 

I bought $50 in Shell gift cards; got the confirmation email as I was walking to my car.
Thank you and green to both OP and WideOpenSpaces!

I found the Offer when I logged in. Thanks !!

Question: does the $50 purchase need to be from 1 visit or can I make multiples visits with a combined purchase of $50??

Good deal. 20% of a $50 gift card of my choice bought at a Lowe's store. Thanks OP!

what GC at Lowe's does a person buy? The gas cards used in my area charge the CC price, eliminating the "bargain". Most of the stations here are.10cents more on CC price. I never see Visa GC at Lowes

  This is effectively a 20% off of face value. Unless the CC price is 20% higher than cash, you are still ahead. If you buy stuff in the store, you can use the GC balance on that, too.

20% off Amazon isn't bad either.

Thanks OP!

5 steps away from cash register and got the email. Purchased one Starbucks one Olive Garden gift card with absolutely no questions.

Thanks, OP

Staples gift cards are always a favorite for me to buy. They have a lot of rebate deals (Staples Easy Rebates) and it is very easy to cash out gift cards to cash from doing their rebates. Sometimes you can even make money when you use the right coupons.

  Visa/MC gift cards would be the absolute worst to buy. You'd give up $6-7 of the $10 you'll be saving in fees.

Went through it today, the cashier was quite obviously suspicious when I tried to buy it in 3 separate transactions and one of my cards didn't swipe correctly. She asked to see my driver's license, and I explained to her the deal, and she said that sounds like a good reason to do it and put through the transactions without any further issue. If it were me, I'd definitely do a Visa/MC card, I'd just swipe it through Paypal Here for a net cost of 85 cents per $10 back --- as it stands I got the Shell GC since I know I won't have any issues monetizing, although I do give up my 5%. I'll live with taking the $2 per card loss for not having to worry about finding a Staples deal (which I could get 5+% back on my SimplyCash or Discover It cards).  Plus FAR isn't really FAR since I have to pay sales tax which means the cost to me may be higher than the gas.

  In my experience, it has always been one trip, but if you can do it on multiple purchases, more power to you. I have no idea, though, why someone would waste time/gas for multiple trips to Lowe's when they could just buy a GC, even if it's just a Lowe's GC.

Lowes $10 credit showed up yesterday 12/10 for 10/12 purchase. Terms said 8-weeks to post so it came in just before.
