Do I Need To Make A Single Purchase For AmEx Offers, Or Is It Cumulative?
Recently a lot of people have had a similar/same question regarding American Express sync offers. I’ve rephrased the question below and then answered it.
I have a question regarding American Express offers. Let’s say the offer is spend $300+, receive $50 statement credit. Do I need to spend $300 in a single transaction? Or can I spend $100 three times over the offer period and receive the statement credit?
There are two different kinds of offers: some specify that it needs to be spent in a single purchase and others mention that it just needs to be a combined total.
Here’s an example of an offer which needs to be spent in one shot:
And here’s an example of an offer which allows cumulative spend over the given time frame:
In my experience, the cumulative spend does trigger the offer credit automatically, as it’s supposed to.
We originally posted the below incorrect information, we’ve since updated it. It
needs to be a single purchase to trigger the offer from American Express. If you make multiple smaller purchases under the purchase requirement, you will not receive the statement credit from American Express. If it’s a shop that you shop at regularly (and thus the smaller purchases) it might be worth considering adding a gift card to your regular purchase to take you over the spending requirement, you can then use the gift card to make future purchases.
