Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available – View the current offers here – Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express 

The Amex Offers program is one of the best ways to save some cash on purchases you’d already be making. And while generally, they revolve around specific retailers — like Hulu, AT&T,  The RealReal and more — it appears as though Amex is beginning to offer savings on more general purchases.

As part of this Amex Offer, you can get $10 back when you spend $75 or more on one or more select home improvement store purchases. The $10 back will appear in the form of a statement credit. The offer expires on Dec. 31, 2018, and eligible purchases can be made using your enrolled card in store or online.

The terms state that the eligible retailers include: Home Depot, Lowes and Menards — either in store or online. For each retailer, there are specific exclusions as to which purchases count toward the $75 in spend.

According to the terms and conditions of the offer, it’s limited to one card per card member across all Amex Offer channels. Note also that the terms state that in most cases, the statement credit might not appear if the transaction is made via an electronic wallet or third party.

To add the offer to your card, log in to your American Express account and scroll down to the “Amex Offers and Benefits” section (you may need to click “Load More” to see the offer). Amex Offers are targeted, so it’s possible your card won’t be eligible for the promotion. I was targeted for the offer on my Platinum Card® from American Express, Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and American Express® Gold Card.
