2 Amex Offers You DO NOT Want to Forget About

There are many American Express statement credit offers coming to an end on January 31, 2016, but there are two specific ones I wanted to call out as they are pretty awesome. You can check out all the offers here as well.

Cell Phone Bill

With this offer, you’ll receive a $10 statement credit when you spend $75+ on your cell phone bill. You can earn the statement credit two times per registered American Express account. This is a targeted offer so you’ll need to check your AmericanExpress.com account to see if you are eligible. I received this offer on about 50% of the cards I manage.

To maximize this offer, I suggest pre-paying and giving a $75 credit towards your cell phone bill. I had eligible cards, so for my Verizon Wireless bill, I went online and simply paid $75 14 times (twice per eligible card). For Verizon specifically, you can only charge to the same credit card once per day. So make sure to give yourself two days prior to the promotion ending (meaning start today!) to be able to take advantage of this offer twice per card!

After I paid the $75 towards my bill, i Immediately received the “Great news! You just used your Amex Offer” email. You can learn more about this offer here.

Jet.com

With this offer, if you spend $50 or more in a single transaction, you’ll receive a $20 statement credit. This means you can receive 40% off your purchase which is amazing! This offer is available via Twitter which means you can register every single one of your American Express credit cards. With that being said, unfortunately maximum registration has already been met, so this offer will only be valuable for those who have already synced their Amex card.

Jet.com is a similar concept to Amazon. I placed a bunch of orders and found many products where the prices were unbelievably good, although there were many items that were much more expensive. So before you go ahead and purchase an item, I suggest a quick Google search to ensure you are getting the best price to begin with.

Many items are fulfilled by Jet, while others are sent from third-party merchants. To ensure you receive the statement credit seamlessly, make sure the items in your cart (which make up the $50) are all sent from the same vendor. You can find the merchant on the checkout page. If they are being sent from multiple places, there is a good chance that it will not automatically trigger the statement credit. This is because the transaction will be divided up on your American Express card as separate transactions (1 transaction per merchant). This will then require a call to American Express Offers team to get sorted out. While you should eventually receive the credit, having to deal with it manually might be a pain. You can learn more about this offer here.

  1. I had a $250 off $1000 on Delta. Bought a gift card and got the email saying I’d met the requirement for spend.

    Definitely check for that offer too!

  2. Did this on multiple cards. As long as the total is at least $50, it does not matter if the merchandise is coming from different vendors, different ship dates and different order dates. However I did have one instance where the third party vendor failed to ship. Jet.com happily issued a credit and AMEX then clawed back the $20. So I had to order more stuff (and either spend $35 or pay for shipping) to get the Amex credit.

  3. “For Verizon specifically, you can only charge to the same credit card once per day.” I found that I could only charge the identical amount once per day. I charged $75 and then $76 on the same day using the same card.
