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
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.

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).

It appears the AO multi tab trick is dead.  it appears to work, but when logging out and logging back in, it only shows that offer  added to first card.  RIP

I just did some experiments and it seems like SOME multiple tab offers are dead. Same for multiple browser. Same for multiple computer.

For example, the 5 off 25 Staples offer (and the ritz shops offer), once you click it in an account (or a person, probably based on SS#, but even happens in people without an SS#), it will show -

"Sorry about that!
The offer you selected is currently unavailable.
Please try again."


- if you try in any other tab. That means that the "SAVE OFFER" buttons are now "live" and go back to their server to check eligibility in a live manner. If you refresh, it is gone.

BUT, some offers (for example the bwwines.com one, just used for a test case) still do work, so they must have added a selectable method of checking.

Looks like the days of multiple offers per person/account are either gone or much more difficult. This changes the whole calculus of determining which Amex cards are worth keeping!

Also, it appears that if their database is still updating one of your accounts, it will show -

"Sorry about that!
It doesn't happen often, but offers are currently unavailable.Please try again later."


- for ALL offers when you click on the offers tab in the old interface.

I was at BBB and Buy Buy Baby today, purchased a $200 Visa and I used 8 cards in one transaction to utilize the Amex offer, the cashier told me there is no limit to the number of credit cards I want to use.

What's dead? Multiple cards in one name? Or all names in same card type?

Anyone have trouble on getting multiple credits to post? Seems like a new tracking system went into effect around 8/2? See comments in this post https://www.doctorofcredit.com/amex-offers-now-have-a-real-time-tracker-with-spend-information-ymmv/

I might not be in a QT region before the offer expires. Can I buy GC in the app?

Should probably be in thread by itself, just figured with he 10% at Lowes people will be purchasing gift cards.

I would be very careful about purchasing gift cards at Lowes.

Purchase $1000 of Amazon cards at Lowes and after swiping (or chip) card and signing when computer has to activate it came up "gift card not valid" and computer froze. Manager took me to a different computer, tried again and this time it spit out a receipt that all the gift cards aren't good didn't charge.
Figured maybe they have a limits, so stopped at another lowes and did 2 swipes of $400 and all went thru.

Sure enough next day on my card is a charge for $2000. Called Lowes and was promised they would get back to me. (They couldn't even find in their system the charge that the computer froze). OF course after a week and nobody got back to me I Disputed the charge.


And to add insult to injury...went to process my Amazon cards and 2 don't work. Amazon is stating that they can't tell why its not working as they are getting an error as well, and they suspect it wasn't activated. (I have the recipe showing it is) and I should go back to Lowes.
Bottom line I suspect that Lowes Computer has issues activating cards and that you should be vary wary if its worth the whole hassle.
