I browse the available AmEx Offers when I check my American Express card statement. I saw this nice offer tucked after Additional Offers & Benefits.
Save On Your Air Travel Purchase
Spend $300 or more, get $75 back
Get a one-time $75 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a total of $300 or more on purchases made directly with any airline by 9/15/15.
Although I don’t have a trip in mind yet, I fly Southwest most of the time. I bought $300 worth of Southwest gift card at southwest.com. E-mail delivery is free. Southwest gift cards don’t expire. It’s a very good deal at 25% off.
AmEx Offers are targeted. You may or may not have the same offer in your account. If you do, take advantage of it before the deal expires next week. For more on AmEx Offers, see previous post Card-Linked Offers: AmEx Offers and BankAmeriDeals.
Someone on the Internet said the offer takes 24 hours to activate. In case it’s true, add the offer to your account first, wait 24 hours, and then make the purchase.
