Show me the money American Express! Just when you thought that the recent credit card promotions couldn’t get any better, Amex throws some free money in the form of credits to its cardholders. Learn more about the New Amex Offers (Enrollment required) which include a points-earning promotion, and dining & wireless credits on a handful of popular cards.
Amex has been randomly awarding cardholders with a variety of appreciation credits. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to these credits that we can deduct. Lisa and I each have many of the same cards, but only Lisa has received these appreciation credits on her cards. Apparently, I’m not appreciated 🙁

Amex has targeted many cardholders with a variety of points earning promotions. I was targeted for an offer on my Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card. The offer was somewhat hard to find within my Amex offers. I had to click on the offers a few times and scroll down about 30% of the way through my 100 available offers.
