If you’re like me, you’ve placed your fair share of Amazon orders over the last few weeks. Not only have they announced they will hire over 200k people, but Amazon stock is soaring to record highs. Many have been able to get 20% orders by applying a single Amex point, and I was watching STTP insta story and saw you can now get 5x on purchases. Whether you’re getting 5 pounds of sour patch kids, a new vlogging camera, or getting a kindle to do some quarantine reading…this is a great opportunity.
What are Amex Offers?
These are targeted offers that populate in your card account after log in. Typically they come in these variants
- Spend a certain amount, get a statement credit
- Spend a certain amount, get bonus points
- Get bonus points on purchases with a certain retailer
- usually capped a specific total, but not always
