[…] According to a data point on Reddit, payments with Plastiq are coding as a small business. This means that potentially paying bills through the service could trigger 2X rewards as part of their end of year Small Business promotion. […]


I was looking through the T&C of this offer. Where does it says only primary cardholders would earn the 2x bonus?

It is confusing and I think the AU cards will earn 2X but they don’t enroll. On their terms page (https://www.americanexpress.com/us/content/shop-small-offer/frequently-asked-questions.html) it says, “Please know, only Primary Card Members (Basic Card Members) are eligible to enroll in this offer. Eligible purchases can be made by the Primary Card Member and any Additional Card Members (supplementary Card Members) on a single enrolled Card account.”

I seldom drop comments, however i did a few searching and wound up here Earn 2X Rewards for Shopping
Small with Amex – Frequent Miler. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend
not to mind. Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of the remarks appear like written by
brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at
additional sites, I’d like to follow anything new you have to post.
