There’s a new Amex Offer today that I see on all my Membership Rewards earning cards. Enroll your eligible American Express Card by 12/31/16 and get 3X Membership Rewards points for purchases made using your enrolled Card online at Amazon.com by 12/31/16.
That’s an OK return on Amazon spend, but there’s other options out there that will make more sense like the Discover Card that will give you 5% back (doubled during first year) till 12/31 or the new offer from Amex Blue Cash Preferred and Everyday that gives you 10%.
Enrollment is limited. Enrollment opens on 11/17/2016 and continues until 12/31/2016. Must add offer to Card and use the same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards that are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of purchase are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per American Express Card online account. Offer is non-transferable. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Your enrollment does not extend to any other Cards that may be linked to your account (such as Additional Cards). ELIGIBLE PURCHASES: Offer valid only for purchases made with the US Dollar at Amazon.com and via the US Amazon mobile app using your enrolled American Express Card after enrollment and prior to 12/31/16. Excludes corporate gift card and custom-designed gift card purchases. Not valid at international sites owned and/or operated by Amazon or websites affiliated with/linked to from Amazon.com. Purchases made through other merchants or third party sites, including those using “Pay with Amazon” or other Amazon payment methods do not qualify for this offer. To the extent Membership Rewards points are used toward purchases, such purchases do not qualify for this offer. Offer not valid for Amazon Prime Fresh, Amazon Local, Amazon Mechanical Turk, Amazon Web Services, Amazon Home & Business Services, Amazon Currency Converter, Home Services, Prime Photos, Amazon Inspire, Amazon Video Direct, Amazon business, Amazon Global, Amazon Drive or websites affiliated with/linked to from Amazon.com. See Amazon.com for shipping policy. Amazon may not ship to all areas. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the additional points. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the additional Membership Rewards points if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party. EARNING POINTS: “Get 3X Membership Rewards points” means you will receive two additional Membership Rewards points per dollar spent using your enrolled American Express Card in accordance with the terms of this offer. These additional points are in addition to any points you would normally receive for purchases on your Card under the terms of the Membership Rewards program. When we calculate the additional points benefit for Amex EveryDay® Card products, points awarded under this offer will not be included. Additional points will be credited to your Membership Rewards program account within 90 days after 12/31/16, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Terms and conditions for the Membership Rewards program apply. Visit membershiprewards.com/terms or call 1-800-AXP-EARN (297-3276) for more information. Participating partners and available rewards are subject to change without notice. The value of Membership Rewards points varies according to how you choose to use them.
