[Amex Offer] Spend $100+ at Staples, Get 2,000 Membership Rewards Points
On Wednesday, American Express added a great new Amex Offer that many people should be able to take advantage of. Spend $100+ at Staples before 1/15/18 and get 2,000 Membership Rewards points. This offer is targeted as I was only able to pull it up on my Business Platinum card, so make sure to check all of your American Express cards.
This deal is awesome because you can buy a variety of gift cards from staples.com that will work to activate this offer. They have gift cards from Uber, Southwest Airlines, and Target, just to name a few. You can also buy many different denominations of Visa gift cards. I went this route and purchased a $100 Visa gift card for myself to take advantage of the 2,000 Membership Rewards points.
Thrifty Tip #1: In order to be targeted for this offer, you must have an American Express card that earns Membership Rewards points.
Thrifty Tip #2: Ebates, is currently offering 2.0% cash back at Staples. However, this will not work for any gift cards.
Where to find Amex Offers
If you haven’t used Amex Offers before, simply log into your American Express account and scroll down near the bottom of the screen and there should be a box called Amex Offers & Benefits (this is available through the Amex mobile app as well). If you see an offer you like, simply add the offer to the card and make a qualifying purchase at that business with your card. You should receive a statement credit (or in this case points) for the offer within a few days of making a purchase.
Make sure to check your various American Express credit cards because each one can have different offers. This offer was added on Wednesday morning and is good through 1/15/18. It also appears to be highly targeted. The offers change almost daily, so add this one now before it disappears.
