Quickest Way to Load Offers Using Multiple Tabs
With all of the Amex Offers craziness lately, several people have written to me about loading the same Amex Offer onto multiple cards in the same login. Most people know the “multiple tab trick”, but some people have been saying it has been failing lately.
Multiple Tab Trick
If you have never heard of it, the multiple tab trick involves opening up each one of the cards associated with a specific login in its own tab. You then navigate to the same offer on each card and go tab to tab to load them. Normally when you load an offer to one card, it will disappear from all of the others. If you load each tab quick enough though, you can get the same offer loaded to all of your cards.
Having done some tests, I do believe the trick is working the same as always, however it is possible that the system is speedier in checking to see if an offer is already loaded to another card. This means that switching tabs as quickly as possible is preferred.
While this may be obvious to all of you. I thought I would share this tip with you. The fastest way to switch tabs is to press “Ctrl” & “Tab” at the same time. Try it and then come back.
Ok, welcome back! So now that you know how to quickly switch tabs, I’ll go over my whole strategy.
- Open a new window and login to my American Express account.
- Open up that same American Express account in as many tabs as I have cards to load.
- Navigate to the specific card on a separate card in each tab. I try to make sure the offers line up pretty close on the screen so I don’t have to move my mouse far after switching tabs.
- Once everything is ready, I use my left hand to switch tabs on the keyboard and my right hand to operate the mouse. I can normally do about 1 tab per second which is fast to get all of my cards loaded. (I have done as many as 12 at once.)
Like I said, I am sure this is probably self explanatory to some of you, but I wanted to help people out in case they were struggling to get all of their offers. As of now this multiple tab trick is still working and I hope it stays that way. Happy saving!
