Get statement credits, bonus points with new Instacart Amex Offer
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
If you’re a fan of Instacart, check your American Express cards this morning; many cardholders have reported that they’ve been targeted for discounts at the delivery company through the Amex Offers program. There are two versions of this offer: one which offers a statement credit for purchases and one that offers additional bonus points.
Instacart bonus points Amex offer
I was pleased to discover that I was targeted for bonus points on The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, which looks like this:
Instacart statement credit Amex offer
TPG’s Jasmin Baron, however, received a different offer for a $25 statement credit after spending at least $50 on The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express:
Keep in mind that you can use either offer twice for a total of up to 5,000 bonus points or $50. Based on TPG’s current valuations, the bonus points are a better offer, giving you a full $50 worth of points for $50 in spend.
It’s also worth noting that Instacart has had some issues with American Express, as the grocery delivery company doesn’t always code as groceries — a major issue for cards like the American Express® Gold Card, which normally offers 4x bonus points on spending at U.S. supermarkets (on up to $25,000 per calendar year in purchases, then 1x). Make sure to check your statement carefully to ensure that points are being applied correctly.
