[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.

Hat tip to readers David and Credit

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

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

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

Got it on 1/4 personal cards (Everyday)

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!

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

ak

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.

I frequently getting the 6% cashback at Trader Joe’s with BCP, I don’t see why would it not work.

Amex now asks for SS#s for AU cards and they have to create their own login. Are you just adding a few dozen with your same name on all of them? If so, they don’t have a problem with that?

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

Avi

Yes, but does Whole foods get you category bonus?

GM

It just gives 1x on grocery if that’s your question? PRG card. So just hoping for 1500×2 on 100+ spend!

DSP
DSP

You’re not going to get 1500×2 with those two offers.

You’ll get your base spend x2 for the first offer and a separate 1500 for the second offer.

GM

Ah you just busted my dream haha. Thanks

Is Wholefoods counted as “supermarket” by Amex? Transaction shows it’s grocery store.

az

Since Boxed triggered both 1X offer and 75-25 offer, so I believe whole foods offers can be stacked.

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.

Chris

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

So what store are counted as Supermarket where I can spend 100 bucks..can anyone tell me some examples of stores?

NinjaX

Nick

Pretty much any grocery store that’s not Target or Walmart counts as supermarket.

Giant, Wegmans, Shoppers, Kroger, HEB, Food Lion, Safeway, etc…

jr

Can i get gift cards of subway/pizza hut etc. from Safeway …does that qualify

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.

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.

Whole Foods does NOT trigger

anne

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
John555

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

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.

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

Joe

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?

Joe C

Never mind! I’m a dummy, I just re-read the whole thing. Thanks for the post.

Has the second credit still not posted?

Rena

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.

Catapult

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