AT&T Amex Offer Success
But occasionally Amex Offers aren’t what they appear on the surface. Such is the case with a current targeted offer for AT&T Wireless. While the offer is for $50 off $150, and usable up to three times per targeted card, it appears to be intended for Small Business customers. The offer has been found on mostly business cards, but there have been some reports of it showing up on personal cards too. I personally had it on both my primary and authorized user versions of the SPG Business card and my primary Business Green card (but not AU). The offer was only available to be loaded via American Express online accounts, not via social media.
Working on Consumer and Business Accounts
As previously reported by Doctor of Credit and Mommy Points, this offer is being triggered even by online payments to normal postpaid consumer AT&T accounts. I have personally confirmed, as recently as a few days ago, that this offer is still working on consumer accounts. This was also my second time making payments and getting the offer, so it appears that it will work up to the stated three-time usage. My $150 online payments triggered the usual immediate email confirmation for using the offer, and took three and five days to post to my account.
In my experience, as well as reading others, AT&T will allow payments beyond what is currently due – resulting in a credit balance. The Amex offer is set to expire on December 1st, so even if your bill doesn’t add up to $150 x 3 (times how many ever cards you have this offer on), you should be able to effectively prepay your account. But as a word of caution, given that this offer appears to be targeted for small businesses, it is a bit of a risky or your mileage may vary situation for consumer accounts (as the consumer account trigger of the deal could potentially go away).
One key detail that I cannot confirm at the moment is whether or not this offer is still available to be loaded onto accounts*? If you find that it’s still available (or not), please let us know in the comments. Also, let us know what Amex cards you found this on, as well as any experience you’ve had with building up a (large?) AT&T credit balance.
*Update: Per the first couple comments (below), it appears that this offer is still available to be loaded on targeted accounts.
