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.

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 for iPhone®
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.

Social media
The social media options are available even for cards that cannot have an americanexpress.com login, such as Bluebird, Serve and Amex cards issued by Citi, USAA, PenFed, Bank of America, etc. For social media, first sync your card to your social media account, then save the offer. If you unsync your card after you save the offer, the offer remains saved and you can still subsequently spend and get the credit. Unsync here: https://sync.americanexpress.com/unsync/Index

Facebook
Sync here: https://apps.facebook.com/amexlinklikelove/?extlink=syncHome
To save offers for which there is no Twitter hashtag to cards that cannot have an americanexpress.com login, this may be your only option. After your card is synced, you will see the available offers. You can also see the offers you already saved, even if saved using another method.

Twitter
Sync here: https://sync.americanexpress.com/twitter/Index
If you do unsync and resync multiple cards on the same Twitter account you must change the tweet slightly each time like:
#Amex???
#Amex??? 1
#Amex??? 2
And so on

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 to the primary account (but not Family Accounts) via the bluebird.com web site. Go to Plan & Manage > Amex Offers. Amex offers can also be saved to the primary account (but not Family Accounts) via the Bluebird mobile app.

Pretty sure the SC offer in Jan didn't trigger emails either.
Credits still posted within a few days.

This might have been discussed already but is there a way to use the SC offer to but membership?

Thanks
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

As Dan has reported many times, you can open a guest account with a California address, then at checkout change the shipping address to yours. There will be NO fee.

Please don't share this information outside of this thread.

I just tried this on the final page, changed address to NY one right before the "place order" and it applied the fee.  Anyone have success with "checkout change" recently?

OK, you can NOT use an existing account.

Register a NEW guest account with a California address. Check out with your merchandise and during checkout change the ship to address. You will NOT be charged the 10% fee.

What service do you have, and did they give you the credit?

On May 14 I did a few sams club gift card orders. I already received them. But online it still shows as processing / ready to ship. I have not received the activation emails. And the pending charges fell off on Amex. Anybody else has this issue ?
