Tina Fey Misses Out on Reward Bonuses; Rips off Stores

American Express currently has a promotion where you can receive 20% more points if you make twenty or more purchases.  And their spokesperson for that is Tina Fey.

Except Tina Fey apparently doesn’t know how to use a credit card.  (Therefore, is missing out on bonuses plus is ripping off the stores).

Observe:

The entire commercial, Tina Fey is swiping her card backwards with the stripe facing away from the card reader.

I guess if you swipe your credit cards that way, you are getting 100% cash back.  Not a bad deal.

  1. Saw this with another card issuer’s commercials as well (forgot which one). I guess the point is so you see the name of the issuer as the card is being swiped.

  2. “American Express currently has a promotion where you can receive 20% more points if you make twenty or more purchases”

    This is a feature of the card that she is promoting (amex everyday), not on all amex cards and my understanding is its not a promotion but a permanent benefit.

  3. BofA commercials do this too.
