MMMondayMemo: What are Amex Offers?
Each Monday, Miles has decided to drop a tip, hint, tutorial, trick that maybe you’ve missed or haven’t heard before. If you’re an expert in this field, some of these may be things you already know, but there are a lot of beginners out there who are just getting their feet wet which is why we created the Monkey Miles Monday Memos. I realized while I’ve blogged about Amex Offers quite a bit, I’ve never actually laid out what they are…so what are Amex offers?
Amex offers are targeted promotions that you find after you log in. Most people I know don’t pay attention to them at all…and they’re missing out on a some great offers.
Log in to your account and scroll down. You’ll see this:
Keep scrolling until you see something you like. I was interested in a couple of these offers so I added them to card
After you’ve added it to your card…you’ll get a confirmation. You don’t need to do anything else.
For instance…if you spend $100 at McCormick’s and Schmick’s you’ll pay the bill in full and then your statement will get a $20 credit.
Each Amex card that you have will be targeted for Amex Offers.
Once you’ve added an offer to one card, it usually disappears from another card.
One little trick that has been around for a very long time has been the incognito/private browser trick. This trick works around the issue of the offer disappearing from other cards after it’s added to one. This is where you open multiple windows with amex offers and individually add the offer to each targeted card while in incognito/private browser. This way the offer is associated with more than one card.
In the example above…if you were to add that $100 McCormick & Schmicks offer to 4 cards and you spent the $100 on each of the cards individually you would earn $20 back per card.
