Amex Offers now Showing Points Rewards for Some Offers, Cash Offers Remain Resulting in a Double Dip
Many Reddit members noticed their Amex Offers shift from being cash offers to Membership Rewards points offers. Additionally, their cash offers remained as well allowing for a double rewards opportunity.
It’s well known that some people get their Amex Offers as cash back, even on their Membership Rewards cards, while others sometimes see points offers on those cards. For example, Rover may offer $15 back on a $50 purchase for some cardholders (even on points cards) while others will see 1,500 points back on a $50 purchase. Multiple Reddit members noticed an update which sent them many points offers on cards they previously were only seeing cash offers.
Additionally, the cash offers which showed previously are continuing to show. For example, you may see an offer to get $15 back on a $50 1800flowers purchase, AND to get 1,500 points back on the $50 purchase.
One person tested out a purchase and got the Congrats email from Amex for each offer separately. If you’re lucky to be part of this glitch, you should land up actually getting both rewards.
On top of that, we’ve already noted in the past that some merchants like Fedex and 1800flowers have been showing more than one offer for the same merchant found on the same card. For example, you may see 10% back at 1800flowers AND $15 back on $50 at the same merchant. Attempting a $50 purchase actually should result in THREE Amex credits due to the 10% offer, the points offer, and the cash offer.
Be sure to save the offers first, and remember to stack any purchases with portals, Dosh, etc.
