INSIDER SECRET: Amex Offers, which are targeted deals you can add to your card, can save you hundreds of dollars on everyday purchases. No coupon clipping or swiping a loyalty card required!
Everyone on the MMS team keeps annual-fee cards in their wallet because their ongoing earning and benefits can more than offset the yearly expense. But when a card has no annual fee and offers perks and savings – for free – it’s a no-brainer to hang onto it year after year.
I was having a peek at my Amex accounts and was happy to see I’d saved over $50 just in the past couple of months by adding Amex Offers to my no-annual-fee The Blue Business®️ Plus Credit Card from American Express (See Rates & Fees). It was really just as easy as clicking to add a couple of offers to my account and making eligible purchases (gas, which I would have bought anyway) and waiting for the statement credits to post.
You can really save money with Amex cards. If you’re not making the most of Amex Offers, it’s like throwing cash away.
Amex Cards Will Save You Money – With Little Effort
Read our post with everything you need to know about Amex Offers
Amex Offers are targeted deals where you can earn statement credits or bonus points by enrolling your eligible American Express cards and making a qualifying purchase. To add offers to your cards, sign into your Amex account online and click on the offers you’re interested in.
Both Amex Membership Rewards earning cards like The Business Platinum® Card from American Express, and co-branded cards, like the Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express and Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card, are eligible for Amex Offers.
You can also check to see how much you’ve saved on a particular card with Amex Offers. For example, here’s the screenshot from my Amex Blue Business Plus Credit Card showing what I saved in under two months. This card has no annual fee so any savings are pure gravy.
The Amex Blue Business Plus is a favorite among many miles and points enthusiasts. While it doesn’t currently come with a welcome bonus, the Blue Business Plus earns 2x Membership Rewards points per $1 spent on all purchases (up to $50,000 per calendar year, then 1x).
Savings on annual-fee cards can offset the yearly cost many times over, too. For example, here’s what I saved in under 2 years with my Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card, which has a $125 annual fee (See Rates & Fees).
I love that these savings are automatic once you add the offers to your card. And sometimes I’ll add offers and forget I’ve done so, then get a pleasant surprise later when I make a qualifying purchase that triggers the deal.
If you don’t have Amex cards in your wallet yet, here’s our list of the best American Express cards. And the cards below earn transferable Amex Membership Rewards points which you can move to Amex transfer partners to unlock free travel, like Delta, JetBlue and Hilton:
