Get Amex Offers on Blue Business Plus

Yesterday, we published a quick deal about how even more merchants have been added to the list of places where you can earn 2X Membership Rewards through the end of this year. That promotion is really an extra 1X on top of your everyday earnings (meaning you will earn 2X or more depending on what your chosen card regularly earns on said spend). In that post, I mentioned that I added many of the offers to my Blue Business Plus for a total of 3X and many readers wanted to know how.

Blue Business Plus – no offers?

As many readers pointed out, nobody has seen offers on the Blue Business Plus since its inception, apart from a single Turbo Tax offer. This is what my “offers” section looks like on the Blue Business Plus (and I’m willing to bet that yours looks the same):

There hasn’t been a single offer available to add, and this is why several readers asked how I was adding offers to this particular card.

Amex 2X Promotion website

In yesterday’s post, I included a direct link to the promotion (click here for that direct link). I suggest a multiple tab method if you have more than 1 Membership Rewards card in a single login ID. I’ll show you how to do that in a second. Alternatively, this can be really easy if you have your Blue Business Plus on a separate login ID. That’s what I did when I opened my Blue Business Plus, because I think Vinh at Miles per Day has a good point on why that might be beneficial.

Then, simply click on the icon for one of the merchants on the promotion page:

Click on one of the merchant icons on the promotion page that looks like the image above.

Once you click the icon, it will “add” this offer to your “Available” offers and you can add it to your card.

If you have multiple cards on the same login, you’ll want to first log in to your Amex account in your browser. Then, open the promotion page. Then use Ctrl+Click to click on a merchant you want to add (this opens it in a new tab). Do that to open as many tabs as you have Membership Rewards cards in that login. For example, I have 2 Business Platinum cards in the same login. I used “Ctrl + Click” two times on the Olive garden logo, which opened two tabs that looked like this:

I then selected each of those cards in a separate tab and hit continue. From there, I had the ability to add that Olive Garden offer to each card exactly as shown above. If your Blue Business Plus is in a login with multiple cards and you want to be sure to add the offer to all of them, that’s a way to do it.

Twitter?

Can you also add Amex Offers to the Blue Business Plus via Twitter? I had expected all along that this was possible, but I honestly hadn’t set up a Twitter account for my new Blue Business Plus just yet. However, in writing this post, I just created a Twitter account and successfully added the Reebok offer by tweeting — showing us that Twitter is another avenue by which to add offers to your Blue Business Plus.

Bottom line

While offers aren’t naturally showing up yet on the Blue Business Plus, it’s not impossible to add some of them — both the extra 1X merchants (where I now expect to earn 3X on purchases that fall within my first $50,000 spend per year since the Blue Business Plus earns 2X on all spend for the first $50K in purchases). Furthermore, I can add offers via Twitter. Had I recently added the Best Buy offer, I would be able to both earn 3X and get $30 back on $300. That would have been a great return!

If you have a Blue Business Plus and have been frustrated with the lack of offers, hope is not lost. I imagine that Amex will eventually roll out full offers on this card — but in the meantime, you can add a few.

Nice, Nick! It is good to see we can add some of these offers since it was discouraging to not see any populate that card!

Hey Nick. I see from the post that you have 2 amex biz plats. Any thoughts on whether it’s possible to have multiple personal PRG cards?

what a lousy PITA. This nonsense and the new login.

Your workaround seems to only work for merchants that haven’t yet been added to any of the cards on an online account. For example I have AX Biz Plat, AX Hilton and AX Blue Biz+ on the same online account. I had already added Best Buy to the AX Biz Plat and was unable to add to either of the other cards. I had not added Olive Garden, Texas Roadhouse, RiteAid and the Capital Grille to any of my three cards previously — your workaround allowed me to add all four of these to both my AX Biz Plat and AX Blue Biz+ cards but none of these were available for my AX Hilton card.

Could you point me to the Twitter option so I can try that for those merchants I’d previously added to my AX Biz Plat to get them on my AX Blue Biz+.

I have the same situation with offers already enrolled one one card and no ability using the method you outlined to add them to the others. Would be great to see some information about how to add them via Twitter, especially Whole Foods and Home Depot.

I was in the same situation, so I did this:
– Removed the Blue Business card from my online account
– Created a new dummy account and added the card
– Added all the offers following the instructions on this post
– Removed the card from the dummy account and added it back to my main account

Takes a while, but it’s doable.

Do we get an additional 2x points (i.e. 4x) total with the BBP if we add an offer?

I tried to add offers to my Business Blue and even though it looked like some of them were added I went to look at them and my offers page was still empty so none were added.
I also have a problem where I can’t enroll this card for Pay with points so it might be a problem with my account

Nice. But like others said, this only works if you haven’t already added one of the offers to a specific card.

I already had the Boxed offer on my three other cards before I successfully added it to my Blue Business via twitter. All of my cards are under the same log in.

I had the same issue as Alex. I unlinked my card and made a separate sign in. I followed your link-but still nothing. No offers on the blue just one for turbotax.

You have to click on the individual stores within the link that Nick posted. The offers won’t automatically show up under your (new) account.

Didn’t work for me. I tried it on a BfBP AU card on its own login and it showed me nothing. If I logged in ahead of time I just saw the regular AO tab with nothing different. If I logged in ahead of time I got an error ! You currently have no available offers. Please try again later.

Strange, I can’t even get the offer page itself to show. After logging in, it goes straight to the offers of the card, not the one with icons (primary card is PRG, if you think that matters), and I do have others in a single login – so if I switch to another card, it then shows the offers for those cards instead, but never the page with the icons. Is there a way to switch the primary card? I would unlink the card and create new logins, but not if it’s just going to show the same page over again!

I feel really stupid. I have all my cards under one login. I’m pretty sharp computer wise, but control click does not open up a new tab in Chrome.

Thanks a bunch for the helpful and informative post, Nick! I made a separate login for my Business Plus card, and it worked like a charm. Keep up the great work.

Any idea why Amex hasn’t rolled out offers on this card?

I did chat with CS a couple of times and got nowhere.
Responses were:
We’ll open a case to investigate,
I promise you they will show up soon,
It takes 2 billing cycles to show up (Same for MR points to show up)

I added 9 offers to my Blue Business yesterday. I created a new login, added them, then reassigned the card back to my main login. I saw all 9 offers present in the main login. But this morning, it shows 0 offers again. Anybody else see the offers disappear?

Is there an updated link to force add the 2x MR offers? The direct link is redirecting to an error page.
