Back in December, I wrote about a stackable deal from Neiman Marcus and Amex – if you ordered $200 worth of merchandise, you could get:
- The items you ordered
- A $50 discount
- A $50 gift card
- 1,700 Ultimate Rewards points
It was a great deal. 🙂
It got even better when Neiman Marcus sent me an email in early January, thanking me for my purchase and offering me a free $25 promo code (THANKS25) to use on my next purchase of $50 or more. This unexpected code was good until February 3, so I held onto it, thinking that it might stack with the $50 gift card that I was going to get from the original offer.
But then days (and weeks) passed, with nary a $50 gift card in sight. February 3 came and went. Finally on February 11, I got the email that I had been waiting for – my gift card had arrived!
I was bummed that Neiman Marcus had waited until after the expiration of the $25 promo code to send the $50 gift card, but I decided to try an age-old tip…to try the code anyway and see what happened.
I started at Ebates to get 8% cash back.
Once I was on the Neiman Marcus site, I decided to stock up on towels – a decidedly non-sexy purchase. However, I am kind of a towel snob, so when I get a chance to get luxurious towels for a steal, I snap them up.
I put $75 worth of towels into my cart.
I applied the $25 off code to my order…and it worked! Then I applied the $50 gift card…and it stacked!
My total was a whopping $5.60. With my 8% rebate, it was $5.15. 😉
- Save all emails! I have a folder titled “Coupons and Codes.” Whenever I get an email from a store that I might use, I stick it in the folder…just in case.
- Even if a code has expired, try it anyway. You never know.
- Don’t forget to stack savings by going through Ebates, TopCashBack, or another shopping portal.
Did you get in on this deal from Neiman Marcus? How did it work for you? If you missed this one, are you ready for the next one? Any tips to share? 😉
