Check your AMEX account for an offer to earn bonus points (or cash back) for mobile wallet purchases using Apple Pay.

I was targeted for the $2 back per $5+ payment on up to 5 transactions.  But if you have a card that earns AMEX Membership Rewards points, like The Platinum Card® from American Express, you might qualify for a similar offer to earn 200 AMEX points instead of the $2 cash back.  For me, 200 AMEX points are worth more than $2, so that’s an even better deal.

With just 5 small payments you could earn 1,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points

Easy 1,000 AMEX Membership Rewards Points (or $10 Back) With Apply Pay

The biggest downside to this deal is that you’ll need to have an Apple device in order to use Apple Pay.  Even though Apply Pay isn’t as widely accepted as Samsung Pay, you can use it at a lot of popular stores like Whole Foods, Starbucks, Costco, and a bunch of online stores too.

This is a targeted offer and the deal I got expires on September 30, 2019.  With it, I can earn a $2 statement credit per eligible $5 purchase using Apple Pay, and I can earn the $2 credit up to 5 times.

With an alternate offer, you can earn 200 AMEX Membership Rewards points per eligible $5 purchase using Apply Pay up to 5 times.

While you’re checking out your AMEX Offers, keep an eye out for all sorts of hotel deals (tons for Hilton).  You can see some of the deals here.  If you want to know more about AMEX Offers and how to use them, check out our guide to AMEX Offers.
