There’s a new Amex Offer that will save you $30 on Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road tickets. The offer is targeted. I found it on my Old Blue Cash card.
MTA Amex Offer
Get a $10 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $10 or more in the MTA eTix App by 2/28/2019. Limit of $30 in total statement credits.
- Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.
- Offer valid only for purchases made via the MTA eTix App.
- Valid for purchases of tickets for the Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road lines, including one-way, round-trip, ten trip, weekly, and monthly tickets.
- Limit of $30 in statement credit(s) per Card Member.
Amex Offers are an extra perk on all American Express credit cards, charge cards, and even prepaid cards. You can see these offers in your account online or in app. You will get a statement credit or extra MR points for spending a certain amount at a specific merchant.
Offers are added to a specific card, and then you use that card to get the credit. To add offers to a card, log into your account online, scroll down to the “Amex Offers & Benefits” section and click “Add to Card” for offers that you plan to use.
You should add the offer to your preferred card. Amex Offers are now limited to just one per person, or maybe two if you are lucky. But Amex is being very strict about one per person rule and have sent out notices that they will claw back credits if you have used an offer multiple times. There was also a second round of clawbacks recently. You can however use the Membership Rewards version and the statement credit version of the same offer without issues. Some specific offers can also be added to multiple cards, so keep that in mind when adding offers.
For third party Amex cards you can use this new website, American Express Connect, to check for offers and also add them to your cards.
A nice offer that will save you $10 three times. Check your cards and add it now if you use Metro-North or Long Island Rail Road. The offer is valid only for purchases made via the MTA eTix App.
