Amex Offers Negative Changes
Last week I covered the news that some people were reporting that offers were disappearing from cards across logins once loaded to a single card. While I am still not sure exactly how this is happening, here is what I observed this morning. (See my post from last week for more background.)
This morning I was loading the Best Buy Amex Offer. Once it was loaded to an AU card in my name and an AU card in my wife’s name, it disappeared from ALL of our other cards across 10 logins. I did find it on one other card in my name that doesn’t have my middle initial so the name was slightly different. Others in our Facebook community have shared similar experiences.
I am going to be keeping my eyes open, but as of this time I don’t know of a workaround for this since it works across logins. I was using the old interface as well and that didn’t appear to help. In the past I would have been able to load this offer to 40+ cards, but today only got it on 3 cards.
We’ll continue to keep you informed about these new developments, but it is indeed true that Amex has some sort of system trying to prevent the same person from using the same offer more than once. This will definitely force me to reconsider which cards I keep going forward since I have been willing to pay for annual fees in order to take advantage of these often generous offers.
What has been your experience today with Amex Offers? Let us know in the comments!
