Offers Bot Suspended – Permanently
Offers Bot is Shutdown
We have been informed that our suspension is permanent and final. We are still trying to get information and alternative design options.

It seems that Offers Bot, which was a great tool to sync Amex offers automatically with multiple accounts has been shutdown by twitter. This was a great tool that helped to cut time and effort in syncing offers before most people even knew they were available. Also since Amex Offers has limited participants this helped people sync offers before the offer reached its maximum enrollment. Seeing a tool like this go is a bit saddening, but now it is time to revert to other methods.
Other Ways to Automate Amex Offers
In our previous review of OffersBot here we also mentioned other methods to “automate” syncing Amex offers.
- Wandering Amamean SyncAssist tool which allows syncing for 1 account for free and multiple account for $15 a year. It does seem the SyncAssist can at times miss out on offers, while OffersBot did offer a more robust search method to find more deals quickly.
- Automating with Tweetdeck via FrequentMiler which was one of the better guides on how to best set up your twitter accounts to best sync when offers became available. But this is by no means “automated” like OffersBot, it takes your effort the find deals when available.
The service provided by Kevin Rose and the team at OffersBot will be missed. I have saved dozens of offers via their service and a couple hundred dollars. I believe that twitter shutting them down is a permanent action as stated on their twitter account. Hopefully someone comes out with a similar service in the near future that can abide by twitter and their strict rules.
