Amex Offers: Cable/Satellite TV, Spend $90 & Get $5/500 Points Back (Max $20/2,000)

The Offer

No direct link, check your Amex Offers

  • Get a $5 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $90+ in one or more transactions on your US cable or satellite TV bill made directly with the provider by 7/24/2020. Limit of 4 statement credits (total of $20). See terms.
  • Others got a similar offer for 500 points instead.

 

The Fine Print

  • Offer valid only on US bill payments for cable and satellite television services made directly with the provider.
  • Payments must be made directly with the provider online, via mobile app or by phone.
  • Payments made at service centers do not qualify. Payments for hardware, installation, and other services are excluded, if not bundled and charged with monthly service bill.
  • Excludes payments for satellite radio services and subscriptions with streaming television providers.

Our Verdict

It’s honestly not much given that you might be earning 5x Ultimate Rewards points on your cable/tv bills which is worth more than this. Still will be useful to some.

0/2 on BCP, but found it on my old Amex SPG card.

Of course I get this one when my cable company doesn’t take Amex. It’s not much of a savings over CIC 5% so probably for the best. Thanks for the heads up though, know a few people who might benefit.

Any idea if it will work if the bill (from a cable provider) only has Internet service on it?

Celia
Celia

It should. I only have internet myself and it codes the same way On my credit card as when I had both.

Are you planning to use this offer to pay your internet? If so, would you mind sharing if you get the AmEx offer used email and if the credit posts? Thank you!

I won’t be using the offer myself so won’t be able to do test for you. I only pay 39.99/mo and have a Chase Ink Cash that gives 5% so wouldn’t be worth it.

Yes, that doesn’t make this a great deal for you. Thanks for your reply!

How very nice. I received this on all my cards but I didn’t get the ATT offer that was around earlier on any card. I think because Amex knows I don’t have any cable or satellite but I have ATT.

Got it on my Gold card. 1/4 cards.

At least with Visa (and U.S. Bank Cash+), Verizon Fios codes as a wireless provider, so a bonus for a cable category won’t trip. Wonder if it is same for AMEX.

Got it on my Gold, Aspire, and Blue Delta cards, not Schwab Plat. All had the $5 offer (when there is an offer with $ or MR versions, I always seem to get targeted with the $ one).

Not immediately useful with the Q1 Freedom category, though it doesn’t expire till July. Even if I pay my cable bill a couple months in advance to max out the Freedom category, I still could do 4x $90 payments in June/July to get value out of this.

Since ATT and Directv merged. Does it also apply when paying any AT&T bill?

Extra 500 MR points for $90 of spend comes out to 6.5 MR points per dollar. Nice!

Can we pay $360 and get the $20 right away? Does it have to be 4 separate payments? i mean is not a huge discount, only 5.5% and rather get it over with

Anyone use this offer to pay Xfinity Internet bill? Would like to get DP first before paying, although I guess it’s not a huge loss (one percent or $0.09) if I was the DP I wanted to see…

Added this to my Amex Bonvoy, then paid my Xfinity/Comcast bill. Instantly received an email confirmation from Amex.

DP:
I had both of these offers and added both to same card:

“Spend $100 or more, get $5 back. Up to 4 times (total of $20). On your cell phone bill”
“Spend $90 or more, get $5 back. Up to 4 times (total of $20). Earn on your cable or satellite TV bill”

I paid my triple-play Verizon Fios bill: $102
Received only 1 confirmation email: ” … you just redeemed your Amex Offer at On your cell phone bill…”

Weird, it picked up cell phone offer out of the 2.

Joel

Would this be in addition to the 1pt/$ standard spend? So $90 = 500+90pts? That’s 6.5MR points/$ which is decent.

Anybody try paying Spectrum for WiFi (not cable or satellite)? Did your payment trigger an AmEx notification about having used this offer?
