This is an easy $50 in your pocket if you have the offer as it would be maxed out with $250 in spend and I imagine that most of us will spend $250 with a US wireless service provider between now and December 31, 2019.
The offer does not specify which wireless service providers qualify. I would expect the major carriers (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Spring) would qualify. Would Google Fi, Cricket, Boost, Straight Talk, Visible, and other MVNOs qualify? I’m not positive, but I don’t see why not.
Keep in mind that Amex does not offer any cell phone protections, so if you rely on your credit card for cell phone insurance coverage, that’s something to consider.
Overall, this is a good deal that is worth syncing sooner rather that later.
