My Favorite Way To Save Money: American Express Offers


For a little over five years we have used our American Express card to pay for everything.  We have done our research on rewards programs and the options offered by Amex were by far our favorite, not to mention the long list of other benefits of being a card member.  We have used Amex rewards to purchase a refrigerator from Home Depot, to buy a television through Amazon, to book rental cars, and more!  The amount of money we have saved is amazing and they just keep giving me more reasons to love them.  My new favorite way to save money is with Amex Offers.  I first started using the offers that were available to me when I logged on to my account.  When I would get online to look at my transactions or pay my bill I would check out the offers tab and select any that applied to me.



Now I look at it anytime I am going out to eat or going shopping.  They are ridiculously easy to use.  You don't have to print a coupon and remember to bring the coupon with you.  You just select an offer and use your Amex to make the purchase.  Once you do, you get a statement credit for the amount of the savings.  It is that easy!  Going out to dinner?  You can select the offer for Lucille's BBQ and if you spend $50 you will get a statement credit for $10. (Good 8/11-10/31/14)

I have been using these offers for a long time, but it wasn't until this summer that I found out there are even more offers available through social media!  I have connected my Amex card to my Facebook and Twitter account and now have access to all of the Amex Offers there too.  I no longer have to login to my Amex account; I can just check out the Offers on my Facebook and Twitter app on my phone.  I select them there and the Offers are saved to my card.  



Once I make my purchase the credits show up in the same way.  You can check for Amex Offers on Foursquare and TripAdvisor too!

What makes it even better is that I don't have to weed through a lot of offers that aren't relevant to me.  Amex Offers curates a list for me based on where I have used my card and my current location.  I can then use them right away and save money on things I was already going to buy!  And there are a ton of great offers.  Card Members have saved over $90 million so far and right now there are more savings to be had with current offers on purchases from places like JCPenney, Sports Authority, and Crazy 8.  

I don't know about you, but with school starting next month I feel like I am shopping non-stop.  It will be nice to open my Amex bill and see all of the credits from the Amex Offers I have used!  And because I know once I have saved the offer I will get a $10 credit for spending $50 at Sports Authority (7/28-8/31/14), that gives me $10 more to spend on school shoes!

You should give Amex Offers a try while you are out doing your back to school shopping and if you leave a comment below and let me know what you like most about Amex Offers, you will be entered to win a $100 AMEX gift card!  Then you can buy yourself a little back to school present!
