desafino which card are you seeing that Offer on? I am not seeing it on any of my Personal cards but I am seeing a "Spend $50, Get $10 Back" on my Blue Business Plus.

It has been a few years, but I used to see offers for Hilton brand hotels on a Surpass card. Based on your post, I will assume that policy has changed.

I see the $90/$20 TurboTax offer on Ms mia's Blue Business Plus. On several of my own cards I see a Tax ACT offer.

I had no problem using it in the past; the problem here was they changed the fine print. I unfortunately assumed the current offer was the same as the past without reading the fine print. Live and learn.

There's been a few Hilton offers lately and none of them have been available on my HIlton Card. I guess it makes sense anyone with a Hilton credit card is going to be staying at Hiltons anyway.

I personally haven't seen this offer, but online deal sites are posting the below Amex Offer:

Starbucks 15% off up to $5.00 at Starbucks stand-alone locations, pay as you go with the app, and app reloads. Expires 1/19/22.

*could possibly double dip on the current month (December restaurant credits) that many cards have.

Depends on what version you purchase, no? $150 sounds like small business?

I paid $39.98 last year for Deluxe Fed and State with Fed eFile. Then paid separately for state e-filing (don't recall how much).

My Aspire, Plat and EDP show $10 off $50 single purchase. Direct purchase from Intuit is rarely if ever the best deal. I added it since it's valid for a long time, but suspect I won't buy via that offer.

Thanks for the heads up. I hadn't used my dining credit yet and it was available on a couple of my cards. Added it to my Hilton and redeemed on the app and got the emails that the offer had been used an my $20 dining credit so they can be stacked.

Good deal, $50 Starbucks credit for $25. I love their holiday blend they have this year so no I have more money on the card to spend.

I have these two offers added to my card:
  • Spend $500 or more, get 15,000 Membership Rewards® points Celebrity Cruises
  • Spend $500 or more, get $150 back Celebrity Cruises

Would they both trigger from a single $500+ purchase?

If you were able to add both to a single card, likely yes, based on the way Amex typically allows double-dipping across other promotions and credits. I'd be surprised if you were able to do that though. In my experience with pairs of offers like this I often have the points option on my Platinum card and the cash option on other cards, but I don't think I've ever had both offers of a pair like this on the same card. Check the terms to make sure that they're not applicable under different circumstances or to different types of product (like sometimes Marriott and MGM Resorts will have pairs of offers where each offer is only valid for certain brands/properties).

Thanks for the info. From what I read, there isn't anything in the terms that would make them ineligible with each other. Funny enough, I also have two Norwegian Cruises offers that are similar to the Celebrity ones ($500 spend/12.5K MR and $500 spend/$125 back).

i see the TT offer on my plat. Might use it this year again, so might be able to take advantage (I need TurboTax SE, so I’m definitely over $90). Have had these offers on Chase too, though not sure if I’ve seen them yet, so I’ll see what makes more sense if those show up.

I’ve got the Starbucks one. Similar to the ones I typically have gotten on my Chase cards, which seemed to be perpetual from when Chase offers started, but stopped in around Oct. I sometimes got 10% on Chase. however, with this and me still being on 10x restaurants on my plat, this works out fairly well.

also saw TPG post earlier this week saying there’s a $10 off $40 at sit down airport restaurants. Have not seen it on my plat through.

That one was first reported in mid-November https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/33732428-post2452.html It's not "all" sitdown restaurants, only those operated by HMShost. I added it my Green Card, and don't remember if it was available on other cards.
