Gift Cards at Smart&Final

Earlier this week, we learned about the Amex offer  “$25 Statement credit after $50 or more in purchases at Smart&Final (Up to 3 times )“. You can make some serious money with this offer, you can enroll all your cards and authorized users for this promotion. Here is a post on how to do it.




Smart&Final sells a lot of 3rd party gift cards, you can buy any of the gift cards you like and maximize this promotion.

For the benefit of our readers, here are the pictures of the gift card stand at one of the Smart&Final store.  Gift cards offered in each store varies (based on my experience of visiting 2 different stores). So if you don’t like the Gift card selection in a specific store, try another store.

I found Visa, MasterCard and Amex gift cards in $25, $50 and $100 denominations. It is best to buy $100 Visa/MasterCard/Amex gift cards, which has a fee of $5.95

You can ask the cashier to split the payment in to 2 cards and pay $50 and $55.95 separately to get 2X $25 statement credit. You can make a profit of $44.05 by buying one Visa/MasterCard/Amex gift cards

There are Amazon gift cards also behind the registers.


You can buy 3rd party gift cards at Smart & Final to maximize the Amex Promotion. If you do not have a need for any retail gift cards, you can consider buying Visa/MasterCard/Amex gift cards.

You can always request the cashier to the split the payment on to multiple cards and use the same card twice to get the statement credit twice.
