Earn 2X Amex Membership Rewards Points With Lyft Through Amex Offers
Update: This offer is expired!
American Express added a lucrative new Amex Offer this week that should be received well by travelers. Get 2X Membership Rewards points each time you use your enrolled Card to make a purchase on your Lyft mobile app by 12/31/2016. This offer is valid only on Lyft mobile app transactions made in the US, and excludes all business transactions and Lyft line purchases. If you are not familiar with Lyft, it is a ride-sharing service that competes heavily with Uber and offers a great alternative to taxi cab service.
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. It’s that easy!
Thrifty Tip #1: New to Lyft? Use my referral link for $50 in free ride credit.
I’m a huge fan of Amex offers because it’s free money (or in this case points). Make sure to check your various American Express cards because each one can have different offers. However, I was only able to find this offer on my American Express Platinum card, but I would imagine it is available for any card that earns Membership Rewards points. The offers change almost daily so I’d make sure to check back regularly.
