AMEX giving savings to the social media generation

If you are like my family, iphones, ipads and gadgets are a major part of our lives. I use my gadgets for shopping lists, reminders and coupons.When I can save money or get something more for using my gadgets, I jump at the opportunity. 

Amex wants to be the defacto card for the social media generation. While reward points may be nice, cold hard cash is much better. Amex has started a new promotion where you can earn cash off the purchases that you make. Now when you tweet, Amex will reward your social media prowess. 

Here's how it works. Check out this video

Didn't get everything from the video?  Here's a written example for the Cheesecake Factory. 
Step 1: Sync your Amex account to your Twitter account (Only have to do this once).
Step 2: Send out a tweet using the #AmexCheesecake hashtag. No coupons, no printouts, no promo codes. No fumbling with your phone when you get the bill.
Step 3: Go to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Let's say you order Chicken Lettuce Wrap Tacos, Louisiana Chicken Pasta, a Chocolate Covered Coconut Shake, and at least three different flavors of cheesecake. My personal favorite: Fresh Banana Cream.
Step 4: Spend $50 or more and get a statement credit of $10!
