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 AmericanExpress.com account. Scroll down to the “Amex Offers and Benefits” section. You may need to click “Load More” to see a particular offer.
Keep in mind that American Express is cracking down on people who attempt to use the same Amex Offer across more than one Amex card, and have even announced its intention to claw back credits from some people who used an Amex Offer on multiple cards. So we recommend only registering this offer on one Amex card, regardless of any workarounds you might have used in the past.
