Huge Devaluation! Amex Offers Restricted to One Card, All Tricks Dead!
There’s been talk of Amex Offers being limited recently. Shawn already talked about it two weeks ago. Once you added an Amex Offer to an AU card, it would disappear from other cards with the same name. As you can see from the comments on that post, the issue affected some but not others. But starting today, there’s a few reports of these limits being enforced and Amex Offers could very well be super limited.
Now even if you use multi tabs and add the offer on many cards, once you log out and log back in, they all disappear. You will only have the offer on one card with your name on it. They might have made this new rule permanent starting in August. Multi accounts and multi tabs are now useless.
I tested it out with today’s Staples Amex Offer, and it disappeared from all my cards, except for the last card I added it to. Shawn tested it out and was able to get the offer on two cards. Maybe being super quick helps? Also you might be able to still add some older offers that have been around for a while to all your Amex cards.
This really makes Amex Offers significantly less valuable as a program. Yes you can still use them on one card, or maybe two or three, depending how big your family is, but the draw of these offers was the fact that people had a lot of Amex cards. Amex Offers were also a reason to hold on to Amex cards long term, as you could easily net a couple of hundred dollars in savings annually.
Let us know your experience on adding Amex Offers today and join the discussion in our Facebook group.
