When reporting a new offer please post here http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=49544.0

To take advantage of an Amex offer, first save the offer to your card, then do the spending. There are a few ways to save offers to your card; http://www.amexoffers.com/ has links to most of them. Depending on the offer and depending on your Amex card, it may be available via none, one or more than one of these methods:

americanexpress.com web site
Log into the americanexpress.com web site. If you get the new version of the site, scroll down to Amex Offers & Benefits at the bottom of the page. If you get the old version, click the Amex Offers For You tab. You can also see on this web site which offers you already saved (even if you saved them via a method other than this web site) and which offers you already redeemed. This method is only available for Amex credit and charge cards issued by American Express.
The maximum number of offer that the site will show you is 100. If you already have 100 available offers, there may be other offers that they are prepared to show you, but are not showing you because you already have the maximum. To see additional offers, save one or more of your available offers and then refresh the list (F5 in most Windows browsers).

Saving an offer on AmericanExpress.com to one of your cards will automatically make it unavailable for the rest of your cards linked to the same login. The way to get around this is by opening all of your cards in separate tabs and then saving the offer in each.  **

**Sign into different tabs?!?
Sign onto your Amex account. card #1 is on the page.  scroll to offers. note a good one. 
Open  tab 2: amex.com (or with Chrome, right click on the first tab and choose Duplicate) > you are already logged in.> go to my accounts > click on card #2  on the top of the page. scroll to offers. check for same good offer. 
Open tab #3. repeat as for tab #2. Repeat as necessary.
THEN: on tab #1 - click 'save' .  Then on tab #2 click 'save' . Then on each tab.
If you so desire: check on each card's 'saved offers' to check that it's there.

This link should take you to the Amex old layout,
which is much easier to scroll down through all the offers.

Amex® Mobile app
This method is only available for Amex credit and charge cards issued by American Express. The login is the same as for the americanexpress.com web site.

Dedicated web site for enrollment
Some Amex offers, most notably Small Business Saturday, but also NYC Restaurant Week, Home Depot, Amazon and DirecTV, offer a dedicated web site where you could enter your card information to enroll.

For Bluebird/Serve cards
Amex offers can be saved via the bluebird.com web site. Go to Plan & Manage > Amex Offers. Amex offers can also be saved via the Bluebird mobile app.

For cards not issued by American Express (such as Amex cards issued by Citi, USAA, PenFed, Bank of America, etc.)
Add offers to your card at this site: https://www.americanexpress.com/us/network/shopping.html
You will be prompted for your name, card number and email address.

Good luck Mountain Man. I had a similar problem (but on a smaller scale) the last time there was a dell promotion and after many calls/chats with amex and dell was only able to fix it by buying more from dell to push it over the threshold. Let us know what happens.
So I called dell and replaced the order that was cancelled. And then that was cancelled a few hours later. I don't think adding on to those cards will help much if any because they'll keep cancelling the orders. I have screenshots saved so hopefully amex will still credit the offer and if not then I'll try to utilize their return protection.

I'm thinking of making a duplicate order without the items that were cancelled and then once that order is delivered I'll use that of evidence of what the final cost should be. That will leave me with an extra TV but I imagine it shouldn't be too hard to sell it at my cost.

Never used ticketcity.com myself but I have to imagine that it would be cheaper with that discount than buying from stubhub or the like.

washington post was a reach but it's possible somebody would be interested.

I have a amex gold premier rewards card and wanted to  upgrade to the new amex platinum and get a bonus. I called amex and told the rep that I wanted an offer to upgrade my gold card he said that he manually put it in the system and I should receive a offer by April 10th to upgrade and get a sign up bonus. Is this something they do or I shouldn't hold my breath ?

Dollar shave club appeared on 7/9 of my amex cards including business. $10 off $10 or 1000 pts w/ $10 purchase. Using a portal this should be a money maker (TCB offers 12%).

CONFIRMED: works on e-gift cards. Amex email came immediately stating offer was used.
Did it work with TCB?

$1.50 is a money maker?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

A GC.  I will presumably get another 12% when I use it for a purchase.

Yes.  It is a 1 and a half dollar money maker.

I am not sure because I submitted the claim a couple of days after the purchase, then a week or so later I got a emails that I earned cash and that my claim was resolved.  Both emails were received on the same day, so I'm not really sure which was the trigger.

Also more lucrative if you received the point option rather than the $ one
