Amex Offers: Disney Gift Cards & Universal Orlando

Two targeted Amex Offers could help you save on your next Disney or Universal Orlando vacation. Neither seems to be widely available, but both are valuable enough that they’re worth a look in your Amex account.

Save 20% at Lowe’s (Disney GC)

We found an offer to save $10 on $50 or more spent at Lowe’s by December 31st. This offer is lucrative for Disney fans because most Lowe’s sell Disney gift cards. If you have a Lowe’s nearby and find this offer on one of more card, it’ll be a nice discount toward your next Disney vacation.

If you decide to use this offer to purchase something other than Disney gift cards in a Lowe’s store, make sure you read the exclusions on the offer. It excludes egift cards for instance.

As always, we recommend combining your Disney gift cards at If you’re new to Amex Offers, you can learn more HERE.

Save 20% on a Universal Orlando Vacation Package

Another targeted Amex Offer is giving $100 back on $500 or more spent on a Universal Orlando Vacation Package. This offer is open through February 28, 2018, which gives you plenty of time. A vacation package is a hotel and park tickets combo. So, you wouldn’t be able to purchase only park tickets a hotel and trigger the rebate.

Normally we would recommend calling Universal and putting $500 on every card with this offer, thus multiplying your savings. But, the offer says it’s “online only” and it’s usually difficult to pay with multiple cards for online purchases.

We weren’t targeted for this offer unfortunately, but we did find several other bloggers who were, including Frequent Miler.

Best Card for Amex Offers

For Disney and Universal vacations, we like the Starwood Preferred Guest from American Express. We often use the points for stays at places like the Dolphin or Sheraton Park Anaheim. We also transfer the points at a 1:3 rate to Marriott or to airlines. The flexibility and value of the points make it a great card to have.

You can read more about the card HERE and use our referral link if you decide to apply. Here’s an example of how we use the points we get when you use our referral links.
