Were you one of the lucky ones that was able to grab up one of the $25 AMEX gift cards yesterday? FedEx gave away 30,000 $25 AMEX gift cards to the first 30,000 to sign up. You had to “Like” them on facebook and go to the link they posted. This was a promotion to support the “Shop Small Movement” where they encourage you to use your AMEX card to support your local small businesses! This is what FedEx had to say on their facebook page:
“We’d like to thank all the Facebook fans who showed their support for Small Business Saturday today. Within less than an hour, we were able to give away 30,000 $25 Amex gift cards in support of the Shop Small movement.
We know many of you were eager to be part of the effort, and we apologize for the technical delays caused by the strong interest this give away generated. While we were delighted by your response, we are sorry for these delays and hope you’re all out on Nov. 26 supporting local small businesses!”
These went fast, and were all gone within an hour! Unfortantely, I wasn’t able to get one because I had a doctor’s appointment.
