7.   Buy a Round

Folks who enjoy socializing at bars and nightclubs can swipe their enrolled American Express card for a $10 (with tip) cocktail, glass of wine, or beer, for their friends.

Remember that your generosity begins after midnight on Friday and ends before midnight on Saturday! 😉

Note:  The merchant has to process the charge on Saturday, so you may not want to try this very late on Saturday night at a bar.

8.   Go Dutch

Take a date, buddy or family member out for a meal on Saturday and split the bill so that both of you get a statement credit.

Or you can treat and split the bill in $10 increments on your enrolled AMEX cards.

I see my credits today. They showed up today dated Dec 1. I received 3 credits (totalling $30) for one card at the same merchant and had multiple cards on my account (each received the $30 credit). Great deal, glad to see it worked.

Same here, used four cards but i see only 2 of them got 1 $10 credit each.

I used several cards and have not gotten any credits either. For some I got emails, but not all. And no credits yet.

I did four different cards and still haven’t gotten the credits either

Anyone get their credits yet? I did this on all of my cards and have only gotten a few of the credits and not more than 1 on any card. Anyone else with this problem?
