I dont think so because afaik, there is no user control whatsoever on AMEX sync offers.

For the local offers, they must go by the zip code of your address. Hence you would not get any other areas that presumably are irrelevant to you. It is not like that you can do a search by city or zip code then see offers related to those areas, and then add to your card.

But you can search for offers local to you when you travel with the Amex app. I do it all the time. When I land in a new city, I click "nearby offers" in the app.

This is very good feature to know about the app which I never use. So for those who travel domestically often, this can be a very useful feature.

What is the nature of the "Nearby Offers"? Are they primarily restaurants?

No, the offers cover all areas. Restaurants, high end and not so high end shops, hotels, etc.

I have the Instacart spend $50 get $25 back offer on my personal plat, but the charges come through as "NAMEOFGROCERYSTORE Instacart" - it's been a week since the purchase posted & haven't received the credit. Any one else have issues with this one? Is it worth chatting to Amex about or should I just wait?

Thanks a lot. I wonder why AMEX does not make this feature more known by members? The hotels offers are for specific hotels I assume, as versus those for particular brand either nationalwide, or worldwide (though the details often restrict it to US properties only unfortunately.)

Not only is it not lucrative, but I'd then have $15+ worth of Subway to eat

I also have a similar one for Ferragamo. Buy something and sell it on Ebay?

In the Android app it's right on the offers tab (I imagine it's similar on IOS:



"Nearby Offers" is tappable and brings up a map with pins indicating nearby vendors that can in turn be tapped to display the corresponding offer.

Has anyone had an issue getting both the dollar and membership rewards offers to both post? I used the $15 off $175 telecharge and 1500pts for $175 telecharge offers on two different cards. The $15 posted but the 1500 pts hasn't. I received emails for both and I have been getting other membership rewards offers to post...those usually post within a day or two.
