American express harnesses the potential of twitter to market credit cards

[Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012]

With an increasing number of people logging on to Facebook and Twitter on a daily basis, American Express has decided to harness the potential of these social marketing mediums to reach out to a larger number of customers and market their credit cards.

Customers who are interested in signing up for various credit cards offered by American Express can now do so from Twitter. The various merchant deals that are available on this social networking medium to increase customer spending on credit cards. This company, based out of New York, said that existing American Express customers can synchronize their cards with their twitter accounts. In order to link the promotional coupons to their cards, card holders only have to tweet using the special hashtag associated to each special offer.

American Express, the leading credit card issuer in the United States, has announced that customers who sync their credit cards using twitter will be eligible for discounts at various retail stores all over the country, the discounts of which would be applied to their statements the following month.

In an interview the Vice Chairman at American Express, Ed Gilligan, said that synchronizing credit cards to Twitter and tweeting about the promotional offers using specific hashtags is relatively simple and hassle-free. For instance, WholeFoods is offering card holders $20 statement credit if they spend up to $75 in any of their stores across the country. In order to be eligible for this promotional offer all that card holders have to do is to tweet the #AmexWholeFoods along with the specific hashtag in their Twitter profile. After you have posted this message, American Express will revert with a message confirming activation. However, in order to make the maximum use of this, customers will have to redeem the benefits within a specific time period.

This is one of the latest moves by American Express to keep pace with the changing times. This credit card lender opines that harnessing the potential of technology and the internet is the best way to keep the young card holders enthused about using their credit cards.

Merchants who are willing to be a part of this new program will also be privy to certain perks. Any merchant who accepts their credit cards would be given an option to advertise on the new platform being offered by Twitter. The company has also announced plans to sync credit cards using Facebook and other networking accounts.
