[Expired] Amex Offer: Verizon Wireless, Spend $500 & Get $100 or 10,000 Points (Works for Anyone: Giftcard, Phone, Airpods, etc)

Update 11/4/19: Data points (1, 2) confirm that prepaying out your Verizon bill is working to trigger the offer credit. Works for paying off a device as well (1). We have a data point for gift cards in-store working (1).

The Offer

Targeted offer, check your Amex Offers to see if you were targeted

  • Get a one-time $100 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single Verizon Wireless purchase of $500 or more at a Verizon company store or online at verizonwireless.com/stores by 12/31/2019. See terms for exclusions.
  • Others got the same offer, but for 10,000 points instead.

The Fine Print

  • Offer valid for a single qualifying Verizon Wireless transaction made in-store at a Verizon company store or online at verizonwireless.com.
  • Purchases made at Verizon-authorized retailers or franchise locations are excluded. Please see merchant website for store information.
  • Qualifying charges must post to your account before the campaign end date in order to be considered eligible.
  • Excludes Enterprise & Government Services, and Residential Home Service (Verizon Fios) transactions, including internet, television, and landline phones.

Our Verdict

Offer seems highly targeted, no luck for me. Sounds like it’ll work for your Verizon Wireless bill – Verizon allows overpayment of up to $500. If you aren’t a VZW user, you can still buy a phone, Airpods, etc, in-store or online to trigger the offer (confirmed data point of this working on Airpods). You can also go through a shopping portal when buying accessories for some nice additional cashback.

Another idea mentioned is to buy VZW gift cards; we still need confirmation that this works. If it does, it’s extremely useful as you can then give/sell it to a friend/family to use on their VZW bill. Also, according to the Verizon site, these gift cards work on Fios too, so buying gift cards would be a way of expanding the offer to Fios users.

I think I’ll be the data point you need for billpay on this one.

Yes same here. I actually have a introductory 0% BCP that I got this on so worst case is my bill is just paid for the next 4 months and obviously best case I get $100 back which I will then also use it on an authorized user card that doesn’t have the 0%. Can’t beat 20% off your cell phone bill if it works!

I’m trying the gift card for Fios route, on the Verizon Wireless website it states they can be used to pay for Fios- It’s 3-5 day shipping, I’ll report back if it triggers the credit, and if they work on my Fios account or only on a wireless account.

Has your $100 credit appeared under the “Savings” tab? I pre-payed my monthly bill by $500. While the $100 credit hasn’t posted to my account yet, it is showing up under “Savings”, so I know it is on its way.

Bad DP- Verizon hasn’t charged my card. Auth went through, and was showing as pending, but it’s fallen off without converting to a charge. If anything changes I’ll update if anything changes, but this looks like VZ cancelled the order for some unknown reason (no communication from them) even after getting an approval for the charge from Amex.

Another update- Similar to Steve , the $100 credit is now showing on my savings tab, the full charge has posted, and the Verizon has sent the GCs.

Another update- the $100 credit has posted. I’m not sure why this took longer than usual to work through processing than a usual transaction, but it looks like GC’s work.

Got the cash back on a couple cards but don’t have wireless (only FIOS). If gift cards work, I’ll def go that route.

Anybody else’s Amex Offers not working correctly the last few days? I’ve redeemed a zillion of them before, so this isn’t my first rodeo, but this week I did an insurance deal, the Instacart deal, and a clothing deal (at a store I’ve twice redeemed offers with before, even) and I didn’t get the confirmation emails. The charges have posted, so I’m keeping an eye out for credits.

Check the redeemed tab. I didnt get any confirmation emails either but i got the credits.
Before the credit posts, the redeemed / Savings tab under Amex Offer shows all the credits that have and will be posted on the account. Hope this helps

I’ve also noticed this. Keep us updated. I pulled the trigger on this offer on VZW and haven’t received anything either.

They eventually post. The email notifications have not been consistent for few selected credit cards but the Amex Credits have been posting.

This just happened to me today, used the Amex Boxed offer which ends today and did not receive an email confirmation of the offer being used. Had a chat with the rep, said he could see it being tracked on their end. You should see it come through once its posted to your account.

Got on my gold, ed, and gold AU cards.

I added it, but not sure I will use it. We are with TMUS at a phenomenal price, have no intention to move to evil VZW.

According to Verizon’s website, these gift cards will work for Fios. This is taken from their website:

Verizon Gift Cards can be used online or in-store to get the hottest smartphones, tablets, cases, headphones, speakers and much more. They can even be used to pay your Verizon Wireless or Fios bill.

If so, excellent deal. Thank you, Doc!

So just a quick update. I pulled the trigger on 5 $100 gift cards on VZW. Didn’t get an email confirmation, however. We’ll see if it takes a few days.

Tip: don’t rely on the Amex app to check offers. I did indeed have it on my Hilton Ascend, but never would’ve known if I hadn’t decided to also check the full (mobile) website too.

I have the same experience as well – seems like the app will only show a certain # of offers since when I add some, more will show up on the bottom. That might be the reason? Also can confirm that the website shows me all of them.
