American Express has released a brand new offer that is giving a $20 statement credit with a $20 or more purchase at The best part is that this offer seems to be open to all accounts.

  1. […] Good morning everyone, sorry for being MIA (missing in action) the last few days, my cousin / roommate got married yesterday, so this week has been very busy helping out and picking up relatives from the airport.  I am severely “backblogged” at the moment, but here is a quick reminder in regards to AMEX Offers.  As you probably know, American Express has been quite generous lately with their AMEX Offers (see Smart & Final and […]


  1. Be careful!!!

    Tried purchasing a $100.00 Vanilla Visa but the order posted as online photo purchase, which is excluded from this AMEX offer. Did not receive the confirmation e-mail and got nervous so I cancelled the order right away as did not want to take any chances.

    Anyone else have success purchasing any type of GC?

    • I’m wondering if they are having coding issues with the transactions. Strange. Thankfully the deal is good for a long time so we can figure out what works and what doesn’t.

    • That is strange since it is publicly available. You can always load it via Twitter.

  2. Thanks thanks thanks, makes me less mad about the weirdo (trying to use it) smart and final deal. That photo purchase above is strange (poster SP above). I buy Taco Cabana gift cards often from, I will look up how those post and report back.

  3. I added this to a total of 16 cards!! I’m thinking buy a bunch of $20 Sam’s club gift cards, if they’ll code correctly, then buy more expensive items with the gift cards. You can use up to 4 gift cards on one order but it seems like only one credit card.

  4. I bought a $20 gift card ($22 total for non-member) and AmEx did code it as Sam’s Club Online Photo, which is not allowed in the offer. I also did not get the confirmation email. If anyone has success in buying an online gift card of any type and it coding correctly, please pass it on. SUCH a great deal — I really hope to maximize it.

  5. Just loaded 7 using the FM multiple screen technique…….would love to hear how anyone is getting the rebate to work…….

  6. Chic-fil-a GC did not work. 🙁

    Has anyone successfully made a purchase and triggered the offer?

  7. I ordered a chair, and the offer was not triggered! I hope they fix this soon and we all get credited!

  8. Purchased a Sam’s Club membership on one registered card and a $20 Sam’s Club gift card on another. Both are showing up as online photo, and neither triggered the offer used emails:(

  9. All my gift card purchases have coded as Online Photo as well. I just spoke with AMEX, and they said to wait until the transaction clears and then check it. Samsclub may be playing games or this may just be a glitch, but there is definitely nothing excluding gift card purchases in the terms of the offer. And the Sams generic gift cards are categorized on their website as Sam’s Club > Seasonal & Occasions > Mother’s Day > Mother’s Day Wow Gifts.

  10. Thanks for the post! Syncing all my 20 cards! The only card that didn’t show the offer was my AMEX Costco card. I wonder why…

  11. I bought 2 gift cards using 2 Amex cards and both of them posted as online photo purchases. I was luckily able to sign up for a temporary 24hour free Sams Club membership since I do not shop there. I called Amex and Sams Club and also sent an email to Sams Club. This feels like a bait and switch. It’s very annoying.

  12. My pending charge for a $20 Sam’s Club GC has now changed to “”. No email, but I’m more confident the credit will post.

  13. Thanks for the updates! I’ve been waiting to make a purchase until I hear back. If anyone has success, would love to see your posts here. Thanks!!

  14. There are now a lot of reports of the credit posting. I also finally received a screenshot from a reader confirming the credit as well. My charge actually disappeared for a few days and just reappeared and it is coded exactly the same as the reader’s. I am confident that the credit is posting correctly, however it is just taking some time.
