Amex Offers: Get 5% Back At Supermarkets (Up To $10 Statement Credit)

The Offer

No direct link, targeted offer

  • Get 5% back as a statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make purchases in-store or online at a U.S. Supermarket by 8/31/2020. Limit of $10 in total statement credits.

The Fine Print

  • Offer valid for in-store and online eligible purchases at U.S. Supermarkets. An “eligible purchase” means a purchase made with your enrolled Card at a U.S. supermarket location by 8/31/2020.
  • “Supermarket” means a standalone merchant in the U.S. primarily selling supermarket products.
  • Excludes gasoline purchases and gift card purchases.
  • Specialty Food Stores, Superstores, and Warehouse Clubs are not considered Supermarket stores.

Our Verdict

This offer is showing on some cards. Interestingly, readers note in the comments that some are seeing this on some points-earning cards as well.

Max this out with $200 in purchases. $10 isn’t much, but for me it’s literally free money as I found this on my Blue Cash Preferred which I use at the grocery anyway. Nice that it works for online supermarkets as well.

Please can anyone give examples of stores where this works?
Sorry for my ignorance. I understand walmart does not work.

for example in florida publix, sprouts, win dixie are all considered groceries. possibly neighborhood market, but not sure on that one. basically anything that is mainly groceries and basic household products. no walmart, target, etc

Meal kit services also seem to work, like Blue Apron. Also Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s.

Is this an one-time offer? I mean, we will get 5% for only one transaction before 8/31? or any number of transactions before 8/31?

Cumulative until you get to $10 in rewards.

I got this on the AmEx Platinum. Note, it also stacks as I was credited for it along with the SunBasket offer they have right now ($25 back on $70+ spend)

Not that I’m going to have any trouble maxing this out before it expires in August, but does anyone know if I’ll get credited if I activated the offer shortly after making the purchase (but before it posts)? I was at the supermarket today and used the card, then activated when I got home.

Update — got credit for the purchase made before I activated (but the same day).

or you can use Chase Freedom and get 5% back with no BS 10$ back limit.

But if you have it on Blue Cash then its 8%.

CF = 4% with BS $60 limit.

This = 5% with BS $10 limit.

Why not both?

Got this on my Gold card, which is amazing – stacking this with the regular 4x on groceries is pretty amazing.

Offer seems to be on AMEX’s “own” non-business cards, like Blue and Platinum. Not on cards like Delta and Hilton. It obviously would be more interesting on a card which pays a bonus for supermarket spend. I generally use my USBank Altitude Reserve card on google pay for 4.5% back at supermarkets, so the offer is trivial to me. If Safeway runs another promo giving me 10 bucks back on a $200 gift card, though, I might use it to buy the gift card (buying gift cards with the Altitude Reserve bonus is supposedly risky).

I have the offer on the BCP but I’m pretty certain I used up my grocery spend limit. I’m not sure

Already? I thought the $6000 limit resets every calendar year?

So you’ll get 6% on another $200 of grocery purchases. I assume you get 1% back after the $6k?

Has anyone else had issues accessing Amex offers on desktop recently? I’m able to load it for the first time, then when I try to add an offer or do anything else, I get an error. I can load/add offers on mobile but it only shows 50 (and I have more than 100 sometimes)

I have this on my Amex BCE with an upgrade offer to BCP. Do I still keep my AMEX offer after upgrading?
