American Express is letting cardholders buy tickets to special New York Fashion Week shows. Some people think fashion shouldn’t be open to everyone, but I believe this is a great experience. Seriously, what’s a great way to boost the sale of designer clothes? What is a better form of advertisement? This is great. You guys better jump on this.

  1. I heard about this American Express NYFW deal last year and that’s the reason I applied for a Amex card. Well now I have card, but too bad I don’t live in NYC or closer I would totally be there. This is awesome experience and glad American Express is making it available to card members…maybe next year or in the fall!!
