Re: More Amex offers

Looks like I got $30 for $300 on both my Cash Magnet and my BCP. 

I don't usually shop Best Buy but I'll have to keep them in the back of my mind if I do any shopping before the year is out.

I have that but BP and Amoco don't exist in the areas I'm currently in. I *do* still have the 10% up to $100 back at Exxon/Mobil on SC+ which I've used $80 of. Smiley Happy

Re: More Amex offers

Love Amex offers. I have them on my Propel too, although most are different from my Amex card. My opinion is Amex offers are by far the best of the 4 major payment networks. 

 

Propel has their own offers in addition to their Amex offers. Just a few offers a month  (you can count the number on 1 hand). Their best was 15% off gas, up to $40 cash back, in June. Then ran 10% off gas in July up to $40, then 10% off gas, 1 purchase only in August. Did all gift cards each month and got $120 cash back plus normal $30 back from 3%. $150 cash back to prepay gas for about 6 months. 

 

On my Amex card, so far this billing cycle, I got Starbucks and 10% off my cell phone bill, up to $10. Next is 10% off insurance bill up to $10. That's over $20 this month on offers. On a yearly basis, they outpace reward dollars by a large margin.

    Experian FICO Score 8 = 847, 2/24
    TransUnion = 839, 0/24
    Equifax = 839, 0/24

Re: More Amex offers

Offers are great when I remember to use them. Most recently, I applied and used the InstaCart Offer on my Gold Card last weekend. It was a nice point earning potential, however I wouldn't rate the overall interaction very high. The experience is greatly dependent upon your shopper's ability to select high quality items, particularly meats! The order was different than the items I selected for my cart, but in the end I made it work.

 

 

This was the offer:

Fortunately my Bonvoy has an offer for just any U.S. Gas Stations, I no longer have any Shell, Amoco, BP anything like that around anymore. Everything seems to be mom & pop run, or "store" run like Safeway and fred Meyer.

 

I also have email offerson Bonvoy 12K points for $6K spend.

$250 resort credit to use on dining, entertainment, and more when you book a stay of two or more consecutive nights at Wynn Las Vegas or Encore and pay with any American Express® Card. Simply book from now until February 22, 2020, and stay by February 29, 2020.

 

Also, what's instacart?

Wow, if they are dependent on items purchased,  that's hard to track or keep up with. Mine are straight forward. For cell phone or insurance bills, I use phone reminders to pay before auto payment kicks in or when I would normally pay just to remind me what card to use.

Re: More Amex offers

Agreed, this was a simple supermarket order, but for some items that I selected the shopper didn't get it quite right lol. For example, I selected prime cuts of  New York Strip and he delivered very thin slices of New York Strip, almost see thru. I thought, what can I do with this?!? Smiley LOL

 

I ended up making a version of Philly Cheesesteaks with them. Certainly not the dinner I was planning Smiley Very Happy

 

Somehow I managed to double the points earned for 1 order (5,500 points for 1 order).

Re: More Amex offers

Best Buy offer says: 

 

Get a one-time $30 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $300+ in one or more transactions in-store at Best Buy or online at bestbuy.com by 12/31/2019. See terms for exclusions.

 

Sounds like it does not have to be a one time purchase of $300+, but multiple smaller purchases add up to $300+ work too, right?

A lot more of the offers (and the ones offered by Visa) give up to a total $ amount of rewards back, which is nice. I think the Lowe's offer runs that way too, as well as Starbucks. More and more of them are for multiple purchases now. Get up to $5 back on Starbucks until the expiration date.
