[Expired] Amex Offers: Bonus 3,500 Membership Rewards with $2,500 Spend, 3x [Targeted]

Deal has expired, click here for current American Express offers.

The Offer

R/churning member rwstolen found an Amex spend offer among the other Amex Offers:

  • Get 3,500 bonus Membership Rewards points with $2,500 in spend.
  • Offer can be done three times.

The Fine Print

  • Spend can be done in a single transaction or across multiple transactions.
  • Valid through 11/20/18.

Our Verdict

This is clearly a highly targeted offer, mainly posting as it’s interesting to see Amex putting these kinds of spend offers out via the Amex Offers platform versus sending it out in an email. Worth keeping an eye out there. Hopefully when they do give such an offer, they put it both in the app and in the computer login since I rarely use the app.

Many readers in the comments got similar offers, each with their own spend and bonus amount. I think this targeted offer is only showing on some Platinum cards.

Wow. It’s ok if MS is allowed else completely useless.

Idk, if you’ve already got card worth putting spend on it’s better than a kick in the pants. I’d take 6x on airfare with a Plat or 3x on anything with Blue for Business.

I got the same kind of offer BUT it says: “Spend $1,000+, get 1,000 Membership Rewards® points, up to 3 times.” for my AMEX Platinum.

I’m confuse with the wordings on the Details section of the offer.

Details says: “Get 3,500 Membership Rewards points by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $2,500+ in one or more eligible transactions by 11/20/2018. See terms for exclusion.”

Does that mean you have to spend $2500 in transaction to get the 1st 3500 MR points? or is that means you can spend in smaller amounts as long as it totals to $2500 in a billing cycle?

Info in the Terms section isn’t much help either: “OFFER TERMS ENROLLMENT/ELIGIBLE CARDS: Enrollment limited. Must add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. An “eligible American Express Card” means U.S.-issued American Express® Cards that are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of purchase are eligible and an “enrolled Card” means an eligible American Express Card that has this offer added to the Card prior to the time of purchase. Corporate Cards, and all prepaid card products are not eligible. Offer is non-transferable. ELIGIBLE PURCHASES: Eligible purchases are purchases made on your enrolled Card and on any Additional Cards on your Card Account linked to the same Membership Rewards Program account by 11/20/2018. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the bonus points. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the bonus Membership Rewards points if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party. Cash advances, balance transfers, and other fees and charges such as interest, annual fees and foreign currencies are not eligible spend and do not qualify for this offer. EARNING POINTS: Limit 1 enrolled Card per American Express Card Member. These bonus points are in addition to any points you would normally receive for purchases on your Card under the terms of the Membership Rewards program. When we calculate the bonus points benefit for Amex EveryDay® Card products, points awarded under this offer will not be included. We may not credit bonus points to, or we may take away bonus points that have been credited to, your program account if the eligible purchase is returned/cancelled. Bonus points will be credited to your Program account within 90 days after 11/20/2018, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your eligible purchase. Terms and conditions for the Membership Rewards program apply. Visit membershiprewards.com/terms or call 1-800-AXP EARN (297-3276) for more information. Participating partners and available rewards are subject… Read more »

Chuck,

Can you explain how this is “clearly a highly targeted offer”? Most of the comments are about people getting some variation of this offer.

That being said, of course I was not targeted for it.
