Amex Offers are opt-in, limited-time deals for American Express cardholders, like 20,000 Membership Rewards points for spending $1,000 with KLM5,000 Membership Rewards points for paying for an Amazon Prime membership and more.

Today, a valuable new Amex Offer just posted to certain American Express credit card accounts, for 15% off Starbucks purchases on eligible Amex cards now through March 5:

The offer is capped to a maximum of $5, and unfortunately that maximum savings isn’t per transaction either. The terms and conditions note that “Limit $5 in statement credit(s) per American Express online account.” If you received this offer, you’ll max out the $5 savings after spending around $33.34.

Unfortunately, the offer can’t be used for e-gift card purchases or physical gift cards purchased online. However, eligible purchases include “app reloads” as well as purchases “in-store at stand-alone Starbucks locations.”

While $5 isn’t a huge win, this also serves as a good reminder to check your list of Amex Offers for money-saving offers, whether it’s getting cashback for purchasing Hilton Gift Cards or getting extra points for staying at certain hotels:

Remember that Amex Offers are targeted, so not every American Express card will be included in this promotion. In order to see if you’ve been targeted — and to enroll in the offer — log in to your account. Scroll down to the “Amex Offers and Benefits” section. You may need to click “Load More” to see the offer. If you have multiple cards linked under the same username/password, note that there’s a limit of one registration per Amex Offer per username/password. So, choose wisely if you have multiple targeted cards.
