[Expired] Amex Offers: 1,500 MR Points with $100 Supermarket Purchase! [Targeted]

This offer has expired, sign up for instant notifications to avoid missing any deals in the future.

The Offer

Check your Amex logins for this targeted offer:

  • Get 1,500 bonus Membership Rewards points by spending $100+ in-store or online at U.S. Supermarket locations

The Fine Print

  • Expires 11/30/17
  • $100 can be made in a single transaction or across multiple transactions

Our Verdict

This is basically free points for most of us who shop at grocery stores. Even better if you got the offer on a card like Blue or Everyday which always earn bonus rewards at the grocery. I can’t find it on any of my cards yet, but many are seeing it.

  1. JonO says:

    Have this on two cards (PRG and Green). Thanks for the heads up, as this is an amazing offer!

  2. MarkT says:

    Thank you. Have this on all 3 of my personal cards (Platinum + Everyday Preferred + AU)

  3. Amol says:

    Got it on 2 AUs for an Everyday, but not the primary. And none on any of the EDPs. Weird. But $200 will get me 3480 MR points with the 2.4x so not bad at 17.4 MR/$

  4. Austin says:

    Got it on 1/4 personal cards (Everyday)

  5. ak says:

    On all 24 of my cards! yay! Does anyone know or can confirm if this will work at trader joes? My wife loves that place and maybe less fights next time she shops there if i can get some MR points!

    • Jim says:

      You have 24 Amex MR-earning cards? Here I thought polygamy was outlawed…

      • ak says:

        rather than useless attacks on martial norms which are baseless, please either answer the question or ask out of curiosity how I got that many cards. Did you know that amex allows 99 authorized users per card? Did you know that you can add yourself as an authorized user to your own card?

        Anyone know about trader joes, or else i’ll try it out and report back.

  6. Zhaolidong says:

    Is gift cards eligible for the offer? Thanks.

  7. GL says:

    Got it on my PRG AU

  8. GM says:

    I have this and 2x at whole foods. Should stack right?

  9. Jeff W says:

    Got it on Everyday. 1/4

  10. Frito Pendejo says:

    Got it on a plain Amex plat

  11. Jim says:

    Got this plus a $50 off $100 from Shipt on one of my cards. Not sure if it will stack but certainly willing to try!

  12. Jimmy G says:

    Got it on 3/3! Thank you for the heads up.

  13. Tanya says:

    0/7 :(( such a bad luck

  14. Rob says:

    I went 0 for … several.

  15. ktenorman says:

    0/2 EDP and SPG. Oh well.

  16. TomC says:

    I have a cable bill offer on my card.

    “Spend $100+, get 1,000 Membership Rewards Points. Up to 3X Points
    Save on your cable or satellite TV bill”

    Get 1,000 additional Membership Rewards points each time you use your enrolled Card to make a single payment of $100+ online to pay your US Cable or Satellite television bill by 11/15/2017. Limit of 3,000 additional MR points.

  17. NBG says:


  18. Mike says:

    1/11 – got it on my regular Gold card, I guess this card isn’t completely useless to me after all (not counting the signup bonus)…..

  19. NinjaX says:

    pleb here checking in… 0/10+


  20. az says:

    So if I buy Whole Foods GC for $100, can I get 1500MR + 300MR back? My PRG has additional 1x MR offer for Whole Foods.

    I got 3 1500MR offers.

  21. Chris says:

    Still not many good offers for Blue Cash Everyday cards, huh? Looks like MR cards get all the good stuff.

  22. JamaicanTraveller says:

    Got this on two of the AU cards on my account so far.

  23. Amanda says:

    On 2 PRG. Wonder if this will combine with walmart grocery offer.

  24. Jr says:

    can i buy gift card on or i need to buy in-store from walmart

  25. Ryan says:

    I’m beginning to get annoyed. I NEVER get any of the good offers on my AmEx cards. I have two and I have not added a single offer in over 6 months now as there have been zero useful to me. One card, PRG, I will be axing come annual fee time and the other I’ll keep but the offers are pointless.

    One card with no spend, the other was a daily driver for the first six months of the year so lot spent of spend. Zilch on both. Sigh. Now they both get no use and I guess they will stay that way. Chase UR is now getting all my swipes.

    • az says:

      Even the 1 MR being used in Amazon to get 2000MR back? That is not an Amex offer, you should be able to use the direct offer link to get the offer. There are two similar amazon offers, one is 2000 MR for $50 spending and the other is 3000 MR for $60 spending. I achieved both.

      I guess AMEX is trying to learn your shopping pattern to give your better offers.

  26. Miller508 says:

    Amex Ameriprise Plat only, got the Whole Foods too

    Both hilton card, spg business nuthin

  27. John555 says:

    Whole Foods does NOT trigger

    • anne says:

      Did you mean you did not get email confirmation after the purchase? I did not get the email either when I made a purchase Sprouts Farmers market which is definitely a supermarket. I bought $100 gift card.

      • John555 says:

        Yes no email. Whole Foods is listed as being a supermarket on their reference pages so I’ll fight this if points don’t post.

        • Rena says:

          I bought $100 GC at whole foods and got the “you just used your amex offer” email, but I can’t tell whether that was for this supermarket one or the 1x extra for whole foods one.

  28. Jonathan says:

    3/5 all from everyday.

  29. Winnie says:

    0/3 – EDP, OBC, Blue Business Plus


  30. Jeff says:

    1/2. on PRG but not BB+.

  31. Brian C says:

    Does anyone know if this would work with “Instacart”?

  32. Joe says:

    I guess I’m a little confused – do you have to spend the $100 in one shot? Or can it be split over multiple visits?

  33. Ak says:

    Reporting back: Trader Joe’s works!

  34. ivy says:

    got it on 2 cards, received 2 emails, only 1 credit

  35. Rena says:

    Report: Whole Foods $100 VGC worked.

    I got the generic “you used your amex offer” email but it could be from the extra “1x at whole foods” amex offer as well. Unlike the 5 guys amex offer, for which I got a “look for $5 statement credit” email, I did not get a “look for 1500 mr points” email, but the points posted a day or two after the transaction posted.

  36. Catapult says:

    I got the email, but how do I know if the points posted? Sorry for the Noob question

    • kirk says:

      click on ‘Available Points’. it should direct you to ‘MR Activity Detail’ page. mine showed:

      11/27/2017 Earned Supermarket Rewards! 1,500

      *purchased VGC on 11/25 at Safeway during the GC promo last week.
