Update: The email has changed now and no longer shows the offer. Even after completing the spending it shows you getting back points instead of cash, which is clearly what they meant in the first place.
American Express is targeting some people with a crazy offer that should get you $9,000 in free spend if honored. But it’s obviously a mistake. Probably worth doing mostly for the very slim chance of it actually being honored.
This Amex Offer with get you $3,000 cash back when you spend $3,000. And you can repeat it up to three times to earn up to $9,000 cash back for spending $9,000. It was probably meant to be just $30 or 3,000 Membership Rewards points. An extra 1x in that case, which is still decent.
There’s different variations of the offer as mentioned in the comments. There’s even some offers that will give you back more than what you spend.
Check your emails and see if you have it. Not sure if you have a chance of fighting to get the $9K in free spend as it is stated in the offer itself. The email is likely sent out to people who have American Express credit cards that earn Membership Rewards points. Check out some these best cards below:
- Blue Cash Preferred from American Express
- Platinum Card from American Express
- Business Platinum Card from American Express
- American Express Business Gold Card
