    5 FREE Songs from iTunes via AMEX

    Terms & conditions:

    To be eligible to receive the statement credit, you must register any valid U.S. American Express® Consumer Card or Business Card from American Express OPEN at and use that Card to make a purchase on iTunes® between 2/10/11 and 3/15/11. A statement credit equivalent to the price of 5 song downloads on iTunes plus sales tax will be issued generally within 5 business days after your qualifying purchase, but may take up to 2 billing periods to post to your account. Limit one statement credit per registered Card regardless of the number of transactions made. If your registered Card is replaced, you must re-enroll the replacement Card prior to making the iTunes purchase to get the statement credit. Additional terms apply; see Registration Terms and Conditions for details.

    You serious? You post this, and send people to a site where you're immediately asked to enter a name and card #?

    I thought this was obvious phishing at first, however: is registered to American Express.
    It is showing a valid extended SSL certificate.
    You can browse the from the offers link within

    However I can't then find the iTunes offer within the site. The gut feeling is, naturally, to stay well away

    I noticed the valid purchase period doesn't begin until 2/10/11 so perhaps it will be linked from and once the promotion goes live?

    I can understand you being leery, however it is legit. It is an offer by American Express that has been checked out.

    AmEx does these kinds of promotions all the time--you should be able to find the offer if you log into your account. I just logged into my account and there it was--5 free songs. No link needed to be posted here since you need an account to get the offer anyway. :)

    Got this directly from Amex, definitely not phishing. He/she was just trying to pass it along.

    I signed up, but I have $60+ credit and can't use my Amex for anything until I use that. FML.
