Amex Offers, $25 Off $100 At Staples YMMV

Get a one-time $25 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $100+ in one or more transactions online at by 6/19/2016. The offer seems to be highly targeted and is not available via Twitter sync, so you need to log into your online account to add it manually. Use the multiple browser trick if you have more than one card in the same account.

E-gift cards are excluded, but you should be able to buy physical gift cards in order to trigger the statement credit. The terms say “Not valid for gift cards in bulk purchases”, which is a bit weird. I don’t know what they mean by bulk, so maybe you should just buy one $100 gift card. That sure can’t be considered “in bulk”.

Enrollment is limited so add it now to your cards, and figure out later what to buy. I only had the offer on one card, an Amex Delta.

Update: I purchased a $100 eBay gift card and received the confirmation email from Amex telling me to look out for a $25.00 statement credit.

Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you will not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. POID: CADM:0001
