Amex has a new Offer from Staples that can save you 25%. Even if you don’t need any office supplies, you can easily maximize this deal.
For this deal, you need to spend $100 to earn $25 cash back. A hundred bucks is a lot of office supplies, but not so much for a gift card or two. My favorites at Staples are Southwest, Amazon, Target, Starbucks, and Disney. I will definitely be heading to Staples to utilize this deal. I’ll have to stop myself from pulling out my Ink card that I usually use at office supply stores, and handing over my Amex. Unfortunately, we only have the offer on one of our three cards.
Checking Your Offers
Every week when I do my budget, I have American Express open in one of my Budget browser tabs. (Why does Chrome ask me if I really want to open 19 more tabs? Yes, I want to have as many tabs open as I need, dang it!) Anyway, we have three American Express cards: Blue Cash Preferred, Hilton Surpass, and Bonvoy Business. Each of them qualify for Amex Offers, and although most offers are the same across all of the cards, they do vary a bit, for instance, getting targeted on the business cards for more business-like expenses.
It used to be that you could add offers to each card (owner, plus authorized users) individually using an incognito browser. Ahh, those were the good old days, especially when they had an offer like Spend $25 at Smart & Final and get $25 Back Times 3, or even the more recent one of Spend $25 at Starbucks, get $5 Back would be valuable to hit as many times as possible. However, Amex caught on, and now you can only add each offer to one card, either owner or authorized user. I recommend having a separate login for each authorized user still, because then you can choose who gets which offer. However, I have also noticed that they can vary from card owner to authorized user even.
The links in this article are referrals from me or Bryan. You can choose which card you apply for, even if it’s not the same one we have. We will get bonus points for referring you, and you will get whatever bonus is available for that card. Win-win!
