Some Amex Offer Deals can be Done on Multiple Cards
Most Amex Offer deals can no longer be saved on multiple cards and are now limited to one-per-person. We noted a bit later that the Marriott offer was working to be saved on multiple cards. More recently, readers confirmed that the Lyft Amex offer deal can also be saved on multiple cards. Reddit folks say that some other offers work on multiple cards as well (examples needed – the others mentioned there are pre-change).
There’s a theory that it depends on the language in the Amex terms: the standard language on almost all offers is “Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels” while on the Lyft offer the language is “Limit one statement credit per American Express online account.” That might be it.
It’s worth noting, however, that the Marriott terms have the standard language (“Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels”) and still worked on multiple cards.
At the very least, it’s worth keeping an eye out for a variation in the language of the fine print, and keep in mind that even when the language looks standard there’s a chance it’ll work. If anyone cracks the code better, please let us know.
Some people worry that Amex can always claw back the credits if they choose to do so like they did with the Staples offer. There’s no question it’s a risk, but personally I’m not overly concerned. They seem to have left select offers with the ability to save on multiple cards. Moreover, they don’t have the serious monetary cost like the Staples deal was.
