American Express has been adding many easy to use AMEX Offers to cardholders accounts. Just a few weeks ago, I enrolled for one where I could get back $10 back for using Apple Pay three times. That’s great for me because I use Apple Pay regularly. If one of Sharon’s cards got that offer, it would be a bit more difficult, while not impossible, for us to take advantage of it.
That’s why I was thrilled to see this alternate AMEX Offer show up on her account.
Get a $2 statement credit after using your enrolled Card to spend $5 or more in a single eligible transaction via contactless feature by 1/15/2021. Limit of 5 statement credits (total of $10).
Using the card’s contactless payment feature for a $5 or more purchase will trigger a $2 statement credit. That’s an easy $10.
Even better was that another of her AMEX cards was showing the Apple Pay offer.
I could sign up for both of these offers on her account, meaning they’re not linked. Between our two accounts, we will earn $30 in credits. Not enough to make up for the annual fees but it’s better than nothing. It’s interesting to see AMEX doing targeted offers to cardholders, sending the contactless offer to Sharon, who they can see doesn’t use mobile payments. Instead of trying to get her to change her preference, they’re tailoring offers taking her habits into account.
