Editor’s Note: American Express cancelled the Daily Wish program on June 30, 2011.

American Express has begun a program that’s designed to allow its cardholders the ability to purchase goods at huge discounts. Every day a few select items are offered up at a steep discount. Anything goes, from electronics, clothing and cars to travel packages and dining discounts. Items are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis and only a few of each item is offered daily. Still, it presents a great opportunity for loyal American Express cardholders to get a great deal on sought-after goods.

Any American Express cardholder can take a peak at the items currently up for grabs. New items and offers go on sale every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday so check often to get an item you want.

Using the program is simple. Browse the items and services on the website and click on the lock picture or “I want it.” Enter your American Express credit card information and you’re ready; don’t worry, your card isn’t charged until you make the purchase. Here’s a tip: make sure you unlock the website before you see what you want on sale; everything goes quickly so you want to be ready.

After you make a purchase you’ll get a confirmation email from the sponsor or partner offering the goods. You’ll be able to track your shipment as soon as it’s available so you’ll know when it will arrive. If you want to make any changes to purchases make sure you speak directly with the partner you purchase the goods from. If you want to add more stay time or extra travelers to a vacation package be aware that you’ll most likely pay the full, normal price for the add-on.

You can also access “Premium Offers” through the website. These offers are always available; there is no limited number. Premium offers let you get great discounts on items and brands you love.

If you’re interested in the Daily Wish program, sign up for the RSS feed on their website. You’ll get updates whenever new items are updated, including what items are available, when they go on sale and what their price is.
