Last week I read about a limited & targeted offer from Amex Offers which gave a $75 statement credit when making a purchase of $250 or more at select stores.
If the offer was available in your account, it could be redeemed up to five times. This means that if the offer is maxed out you could get up to $375 for free from American Express! Not bad at all…
$375 is a nice chunk of change so I was hoping that at least one of my cards had this offer.
I logged into my Amex account on Friday and didn’t see the offer. I immediately once again wondered how we get specific offers.
It was a bit annoying that again I didn’t seem to be targeted by Amex for an offer but what could you do? Time to move on, hope you get the next one that comes along…
Yesterday I was talking with my brother and he mentioned getting the $75 Amex Offer on one of his cards. I mentioned that I had checked my account and came up empty.
When I got home later on I decided to once again check my accounts.
One by one I went through my three remaining American Express accounts, two of which are business cards.
My personal SPG not so surprisingly had nothing nor did my Business Gold card.
I was now down to my final card, a Starwood Business card. I skimmed through my offers and didn’t see anything which stood out. I then went through my offers once more striking gold, well at least $375 worth of free money!
I did indeed have this targeted offer. I don’t know if I missed seeing it on my account on Friday or not but I enrolled in the offer.
My plan is to make five purchases of $250 at Staples. I’ll buy a $200 Visa gift card each time and then pick up a $50 Shell Gas or Whole Foods card.
This should be the easiest $375 I’ve ever earned!
Were you targeted by American Express for this offer?
