Please note the McDonald’s offer is no longer availble for Amex cardholders to register.
Amex Offers are a great way for American Express cardholders to get some extra (and easy) savings.
Recently, we saw a great offer at Marriott Bonvoy properties, where you could save $60 when you spent $300 or more (sadly, it appears the card limit was reached rather quickly on this offer). Today we have 2 new offers that recently caught our eye.
To find out more about how Amex Offers works, you can visit this page. And to see a listing of current offers, you can find them here. Please note that not all Amex cards may have access to these offers.
So if either of these offers interest you, act quick because they may not be available for long. Once the card registration limit has been reached, the offers will no longer be available for other cards to register.
McDonald’s Amex offer
First up is an offer from McDonald’s.
Simply spend $10 and get $5 back as a statement credit. To top it off, you can get this offer twice.
That’s some great savings – up to 50% actually. It’s an easy offer to take advantage of.
There are 40,000 Amex credit card numbers that are able to register for this offer. Purchases must be completed by December 15, 2019.
Bonus Amex offer: $10 credit on your cell phone bill
But that’s not the only offer that caught our eye – Amex is also giving you the chance to save on your cell phone bill.
Simply make 3 payments of at least $30 towards your cell phone bill by March 31, 2020, and you’ll get a one time $10 statement credit.
This offer is available to the first 50,000 Amex cards that register. Register by December 31, 2019 to be eligible.
