Earn Statement Credits With New Amex Offers
Several new Amex offers are available that allow you to earn one-time statement credits when using your registered Amex card for purchases from specific merchants, such as Kate Spade and Best Western.
There are currently two different types of Amex offers: those you can access via social media, and those that can be accessed via your online American Express account.
The newest offers are currently available through the Offers for You section of your online American Express account. However, if you'd like to also receive offers via Twitter or Facebook, here's how:
Link your Amex card with your Twitter or Facebook account, then follow the American Express Twitter feed or like the Amex Facebook page to see offers. In order to receive discounts at participating merchants, write tweets on Twitter that include designated hashtags, or on Facebook, just click on featured offers to add them to your card.
Almost all Amex cards are eligible for current account-connected offers, except American Express corporate cards, pre-paid cards, and the Target REDCard. To register for the offer and add it to your card, click the "Add to Card" tab; once an offer is added, you can shop and get your statement credit. Some accounts may ask you to "Save Offer," so keep an eye out for this tab.
