Hey guys, Amex Offers have had some good stuff available recently. I thought I’d create a thread to keep track of offers. Each of these offers typically have a limited enrollment and will disappear after that so YMMV. Post here and I’ll try to update it semi-regularly. You should be able to edit the first post too, and I would just need to approve it in that case.
For the 10% off cable offer, the max amount of discount is $30 per card so I prepaid my internet service for several months and put a note in my calendar when I’ll start paying again. I got this offer in 4 cards ~ BCE and OBC.
If I had to make a bet, I’d go with the latter. I think they add offers monthly so it’s probably a semi-manual process. Enrollment limit might play a part too, I’m sure at least a few of these offers are only available visible to me because they’ve been added to my card.
Thanks. Hoping to get some dual-use out of my $75 fee hilton card since Hilton Points keep getting more and more worthless. (At this point, it’s probably not even worth putting my actual Hilton spend on the card at 12x points. That’s generally only worth about 4-5% to me… and CSR already pays me 4.5% value on travel with much more flexible redemption. So the card’s mainly just for the open bonus and for the Gold status)
They basically removed almost all of the “category” cap point options and now if the hotel is at other than minimum capacity pricing it’s at best 0.5cent/pt compared to full price booking including taxes. But if I actually pay cash I can book 10-20% cheaper and earn around 40 Hilton points/$… so the Hilton point value usually drops below 0.4cent/pt, unless staying 5 nights. You even have to call in to book with points at many hotels, they blocked off online or in-app points bookings completely at the individual hotel’s discretion even though there is required to be no blackouts.
Sorry guys, I made a mistake. Purchasing the prime gift membership does not trigger the bonus. It did in fact post, and was a giant pain in the ass to cancel.
I wanted to test it, and can confirm that purchasing the gift prime membership triggers the AMEX offer. I had to start from not being logged in for it to actually add to my cart though. I set it to deliver in Jan the day of my renew date, and set the 3-day reminder to cancel. Also, I changed my renewal credit card to one that will expire.
I see several good offers seem to have only been on the Everyday card (not on my Blue Everyday card).
Would this justify applying for that card?
I suspect that he who got these may have been one who had not used an Amex for groceries or for Amazon.
generous phone offers appear to be received only by family members who had not used an Amex for such expenses, or had not received such offers before.
When the CITI Hilton’s become Amex Hiltons I will be at their 4 card limit, and was thinking of trying to get one more Amex before then.
In my case, I had once had a Hilton card, and canceled to get another Amex. Hence no more bonuses on the regular Hilton card.
I can use a Hilton Amex card, since I points points with them, travel less, and with a credit card can get a few more to keep the account active (which was the major use of my CITI card with a small charge now and then.
I have two CITI Hilton cards, so possibly I would end up with 2 AMEX Hilton cards (bigger total credit lines), but I suspect they will give me only one.
If there was a CITI card I wanted I might apply for it, and then try to transfer most of the line to it. ( understand the only time they do line transfers is when getting a new card), but I do not see any I want, but do not have, and would qualify to get a bonus on.
In my circumstances, no longer traveling much, the new Ascend card does not appear worth the price.
I meant to refer to the aspire. $450 fee but $250 Hilton credit and $250 airline credit and you get diamond status. I’m not sure if the airline credit will have a useful use for me, though. Amex seems very picky on charges. (Haven’t had one before, just based on research.)
