Pay it Forward

Earlier this week I posted about an amazing opportunity to get a $150 statement credit with AT&T. The best part of the promotion is that it only required you to spend $150 to receive the credit, so ultimately free money.

AT&T Amex Offers

For the most part it seemed like those with an Amex OPEN credit card were being targeted for the offer (although not all) regardless of your phone carrier service. While I was targeted for the offer, I am a Verizon customer and am not switching to AT&T anytime soon. So the offer really had no use to me, but… a fellow blogger reached out asking if I’d be willing to use the offer on his AT&T bill. Without hesitation I immediately said yes and paid $150 towards his bill with my synced card. It literally took me no more than 5 minutes and I was able to pay it forward and help out someone else!

If you’ve received the targeted offer and have no use for it yourself, try to find a friend or family member with AT&T and credit their account with the $150. Even if their bill is paid in full, you can still apply the amount to use at a future date. And do not worry, it is an automated system so you will not have to speak to a representative! All you will need is the accounts phone number and the last four digits of their social security number. You can just call 1800-331-0500 and follow the prompts. The offer expires April 15, 2015. Make sure to read this prior post detailing out the offer if you have no idea what I am talking about!

It put a smile on my face knowing I helped out someone else.

  1. I would read the fine print of the offer. I thought about doing it for someone so i synced my cards and it saye: “Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying transaction from the merchant until that qualifying transaction has been fully processed. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying transaction is returned/cancelled.” I wonder if they will check the cardholder name against the name on the bill? Can you let us know if it goes through?
