20% cashback campaign with AMEX card

Today I will introduce a technique that uses four 20% return campaigns held by Amex.
The first “Cashback in Your Town” campaign is a 20% cashback for shopping at eligible stores in Tokyo, Kanagawa and Osaka.
The second “Large Home Appliances Retail Store 20% Cash Back” campaign is 20% cash back for shopping with BicCamera, Kojima, Yamada Denki, and Yodobashi Camera.
The third “Home Center Cash Back” campaign is a 20% cash back for shopping at Cainz Home, Konan and Komareshimaho.
The fourth “20% cashback for shopping at IKEA store” campaign is 20% cashback for shopping at IKEA.
