Tina Fey's Top 20 Credit Card Purchases are Almost All Food

"10. Donuts for everyone in the office, because food breeds loyalty."

In its ongoing ad campaign for the Amex EveryDay credit card, American Express asks Tina Fey, the comedian, writer, and incredibly busy mother of two, to list her 20 monthly purchases with her Amex EveryDay Card.

It’s written in Fey’s classically comfortable and funny voice, and includes things like “Dog groomer. Someone in this family should have a hairstyle” and “A gym membership so I can take a ‘stretching area nap.’”

We were pretty pleased to discover that like so many of us (including her 30 Rock character Liz Lemon) Fey devotes much of the bill to matters of the stomach.

Less attention is paid to items related to leisure (“Manicure. ‘Cause when you talk with your hands they should be human hands”) and children’s entertainment (“Tickets to the American Museum of Natural History for a playdate with the Blue Whale”).

Without further ado:

1.Grilled cheese and soup from a diner, STAT.

4. Milk

6. One Huge NY bagel that feeds our whole family and a family of pigeons

8. Fresh fish and vegetable from Citarella that my husband knows how to cook. Yes I am lucky.

10. Donuts for everyone in the office, because food breeds loyalty.

11. Milk.

14. A birthday cake with a coworker’s picture on it. So I can eat his/her face.

18. Who is drinking all this #$&*@*# milk?

You're kidding, right? Tina fey is the single most talented and intelligent (and gorgeous) writer/actor in the business. But her humor IS dry and sophisticated, so the average person won't understand that.


Who cares


I find her rude, ignorant and most unattractive. I won't purchase products that she hocks. Don't understand why companies would want her to represent them. I saw a picture of her with her husband and she towers over him...pretty funny!


She is like so not funny


I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions most people aren’t aware of the almost I unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites the site that has the best deals is <a href="http://saveblast.com" title="http://saveblast.com">http://saveblast.com</a>
I checked with the BBB and was told that it is all legit. How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don’t know I do know that I bought my son an ipad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 Low gift

cards for $48Why would I even think about shopping anyþlace else?
