In the last few days, something strange has been happening on some American Express credit cards. Some Membership Rewards earning cards had the Amex Offers switched from points offers to statement credit offers. But for some, both offers show on the same credit card. The glitch was reported by Doctor of Credit two days ago, and it’s probably happening as they are switching the offers. Not everyone is seeing this, but if you see two offers for the same merchant on the same card, then it should be good news.
The offers below for example, which were posted by Frequent Miler, are showing on the same card. There’s already a few data points that once you complete the spending requirements, both the cash and the Membership Rewards offers will be triggered. So in the 1800Flowers case above, once you spend $50, you will get $15 back and 1,500 Membership Rewards points.
Using both the Membership Rewards Amex Offer and the statement credit offer has been possible for the same person, but on different cards. This makes it better, as you can get two offers, by completing one spending requirement. I don’t see it on a few cards that I quickly checked now, but make sure you check and add them to your cards now. Also use them quickly because you never know if they will disappear from your account. I guess there’s still a small chance that they claw back one offer, even after you use it and get the credit and points.
Let me know if you see it in your cards.
