Thanks
You should be fine. I recently did the same thing with a statement credit offer. I bought then added offer before charge posted and got the credit.

I had an Amex Offer for 10% back on payments made to cable / satellite providers and another offer for 10% back on payments to wireless providers. My accounts had both offers but my wife's accounts only had the cable / satellite offer. Max discount is $30 for each and both expire 6/30/16.

Note: Satellite offer valid for services provided in NY, NJ, IL, FL, TX, WA, CA and MA only.

There is a new offer for 10% off upto $30 on cable or satellite bill. My wife and I have the PRG and it was loaded to both cards on the website. Expires on 06/30/16. I heard rumors of the 10% off on the wireless carrier as well, but I don't have that offer loaded.

I got the 10% off wireless, but no use to me as I don't use the eligible carriers.

Sure; Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Sprint. So that covers pretty much everybody that has a cell phone, but I use Cricket which uses the AT&T network.

Used my 5% off at Home Depot this afternoon. Got the email congratulating me for using it immediately after purchase.

It's nice to know the offer is working, but if I'm going to get an email for every single Amazon order I place from now until the end of July, it might get old...

Got a bunch of solid new AMEX Sync offers this morning on my PRG:

2x MR at Target.com (through 12/31)
2x MR at Bestbuy.com (through 12/31)
2x MR at williams-sonoma.com (through 12/31)
2x MR at Pottery Barn Brands online (through 12/31)
2x MR at Gap online (through 12/31)
2x MR at Neiman Marcus online (through 12/31)
2x MR at WestElm.com (through 12/31)

The most important one for me is the Target.com. Here are the Target terms:

Offer not valid in Target stores, Bulk/Corporate Gift Cards, clinic services at Target, Target Optical™, pharmacies at Target, Target Photo, Portrait Studio or phone purchases (other than 1.800.591.3869, 1.800.888.9333 or 1.800.544.2943) or on purchases shipped outside of the U.S. or Puerto Rico

Does not seem to exclude regular gift cards (just bulk/corporate). Since I never know what card to use when I shop at Target (since none of mine get bonused spend I usually just use SPG Amex since it hold the most value) I'll likely use this to load up on a few Target gift cards and then just use those in the store.

Off topic, but Visa/Mastercard often codes Target as grocery.

AMEX Gift Card offer

I noticed a number of spend $100 on Amex gift cards, get $5.00 back.

Leaving aside shipping and other charges, this could be attractive, even if just as a way to get 5% back on a categoy you otherwise would not, (get gift card and use to pay for something).

Any ideas on how to best use these offers? and how to get free shipping etc.

Fair - unfortunately the only Visa/Mastercard I have that gets a grocery bonus is the Chase Freedom (and only during Q2 starting today) and they explicitly exclude Target.

So at least with my current card line-up this is a win for me.

I was just going to post about these. Is Amex no longer giving CASH back
Offers on these? For the last two years they've regularly offered great cash backs like Best Buy $20/$200 or $25/$250, twice per year. Gap also has a healthy offer last year:$15/$75 IIRC.

2x MRs? Seriously? This changes the economics on many Amex cards. It's often the Cashback offers help offset the AF.


This is bad. Amex has been taking on water at an accelerated pace already.
