Update2: This bonus is back, we’ve updated the current login link and also the offer code (CBUX:0003).
Last week, we covered the targeted 10,000 Membership Rewards points bonus that many people got in their inbox from Amex for simply enrolling in the pay-over-time option.
This deal is probably one of the easiest wins you can get, and there are a few things to keep in mind with regards to getting yourself targeted.
Email, Amex Offers
To start with the obvious, check your emails and the Amex Offers section in your Amex login to see if the offer shows up on any of your charge cards. This offer will only show on charge cards, personal or business, but never on credit cards.
Use the Signup Link
There’s a very interesting report from Takeoffwithmiles and others who were able to signup for the Extended Payment option over the phone even though they weren’t targeted via email. Call 1-866-280-4438 and use promo code: CBUX:0003 for this offer. Amex should be able to tell you if you are eligible.
I tried on my two charge cards, but one was already enrolled, apparently, and the other was a new card. I was told that only cards that already had three billing cycles are eligible to enroll in Extended Payments. Amex encouraged me to call back in a few months after three billing cycles had generated.
When you click through the offer link from email or Amex Offers, the system will often take you to an offer page showing multiple cards which are eligible for the 10k offer. The system might let you sign up for each card, one at a time. If it does, you should get the 10k bonus on each card.
In the past, people were able to signup multiple cards using one link, but some readers are saying the system is only allowing one signup per link this time. Try calling in to see if you can get it on the other cards, using the offer code mentioned above. Targeted folks might have better luck calling in and getting the offer added on non-targeted cards (this is speculation on my part).
