American Express Introduces a Hub for Offers

The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

American Express cardholders can take advantage of over $15 million in statement credits when they use their cards at favorite merchants—and the launch of aims to make connecting with those savings easier.

To use the Amex Offers program, cardholders must sync their American Express cards with social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and TripAdvisor using their iPhones. Before, they had to do this through each app.

When they go to the, consumers will be able to log in to their American Express account, download the free American Express iPhone app, and connect their accounts with the social media channels of their choice where they will see current offers on the website. They then choose the ones they are interested in and save them to their account.

How it works

Amex Offers are entirely digital—there is no barcode scanning or coupon clipping necessary. Customers don’t even have to alert merchants that they are taking advantage of a discount when they are shopping, dining, or seeing a movie. When they spend money at a participating merchant during the promotional period, a statement credit will automatically be added to their account.

It does take some time for the discount to be applied. American Express says it generally takes about 90 days for the statement credit to show up in a customer’s account.

Who is eligible

Only holders of consumer or small business American Express cards are eligible for the Amex Offers program. Corporate cards are not eligible, and prepaid cards are also excluded—with the exception of American Express Serve cards. People with prepaid Serve accounts may participate in promotions from Facebook, Foursquare and Twitter. They are not, however, eligible for TripAdvisor discounts.

What’s on offer now

American Express curates offers based on both member spending history and location. Some of the offers currently available include:

  • Spend $30 at BP gas stations and get a $5 credit

  • Spend $75 at Brooklyn Industries and get a $15 credit

  • Spend $50 at Crate & Barrel and get a $10 credit

  • Spend $50 at Lowe’s and get a $10 credit

  • Spend $25 at PetSmart and get a $5 credit

  • Spend $150 at Zappos and get a $30 credit
