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.

:o ??? ??? ??? :o now you woke up,were done with this for. A couple of hours already, ha I love the way you say CRY FOR HELP
Don't flatter yourself. I wasn't responding to you at all. I was merely quoting your post to show what I was referring to. Unfortunately we are not done with this at all. Today it was you tomorrow it will be someone else. The script however, remains the same.

Always the same, first the cry for help, and then the attitude immediately follows!
Isn't what's this is all about, to help other people ? If you don't like helping other people then don't subscribe to the forum. I assume there was a time that you did not know how to play this game, And you probably relyed on someone else's advice. Don't bash someone when they ask a question. If you don't feel like answering. Then don't.
If you don't have something nice to say. Don't say anything.
Nothing personal here. I can't take the attitude here.

There are a couple issues here. As as2 said, most of us took the time to read through the threads before we jumped in. Also, most of us probably jumped in to signing up for cc which don't involve any expenditure. To run out and buy $1200 with no idea how to cash out is simply irresponsible,and honestly, if he didn't get hit hard he'd just do it again, and lay out more when the next chance came along and get himself in deep debt. Better to be attacked, feel bad, despise the people who attacked him, but next time think it all the way through.
Furthermore many of us have put in thousands of hours both here on ddf and elsewhere and in the real world figuring this stuff out. While we want to help, it is extremely frustrating when Pete come and ask to be spoofed everything, especially when they get all defensive.
I keep going back to the horror stories of people eying at target employees, demanding the right to load their RedCard (or 15 cards) and holding up the line. And then we wonder why things get killed?
It takes some delicacy and finesse to be able to MS successfully and get the employees who help us to like you.
Another example.
I went to sams club in November on a Sunday. Grabbed like 20k in gift cards went to cs and asked to buy them.manager came over and asked if I had just been there last night.
Long story short, I had not but other Jewish guys had been. They acted shady, would not give their license, or other info (even though they needed to use their SC card), and the manager decided not to sell. They got upset and ended up making a small scene and a huge chillul hashem.
I, on the other hand, explained EXACTLY what I was doing, how the amex offer worked, and I even vaguely described how I cashed out. I offered my license, agreed to fill out the AML form and had a very pleasant experience. She had no issue and I was able to undo the damage done the previous night. She was so comfortable with my explanation that she held a box of cards for a month till I came back again, and another ddfer also went there and was up front with her.
The next time I went I brought a box of cookies to thank her.
This is what I've learned from doing this alot this year. But the attitude of the other guys is that of people who don't fully understand what we are doing. Is it scary to fill out the AML form? Sure, if you don't know what it's about. But we aren't doing anything illegal, we gotta be comfortable with what we do, and you gotta go slow, have a plan,, have a backup plan, be able to float the funds, and most importantly be nice.
It's more than just run and spend. There is a lot of effort we have put into this. All we ask is that the n00bs put in a drop of effort. At the very least, read through the last few days of this thread. For better or worse it's almost all here.

Read the back and forth, it should be self explanatory. It seems that it least for some it isn't. I will spend a minute expalning it, but then let's get this thread back on topic. Someone went and spent $1200 on GC, without a proper plan for cashing them out. Once the deed was done he came here looking for help. Someone responded that one should really not buy GC without a proper cashing out plan. This was very constructive criticism in my opinion (given the fraud rate going on with these cards lately). Instead of accepting the advice and moving on, OP got mad that there was no one spoon feeding him answers. This has been happening more and more as of late, and it's getting annoying. So in short yes, this forum is to help people. I and many others try to give helpful advice when we can. When someone new asks a question and immediately starts giving attitude to the people that respond to him, it's not ok. Are we clear?

He only gave attitude to someone who gave him attitude as to why he was asking the question. All I am saying is, If someone does not want to answer a question, just ignore. They take the time and effort to respond, but without a productive response. Just to bash and belittling that person, Because they get annoyed from the question.

that's why. over 10k requires the form. you worked with the manager or regular CS person?
-10k
This form is only required if you spend 10k in Cash you are basically declaring that your not laundering the money
With cc that's not required,
As well, there is something else about large transaction's which this isn't...

I was in a Sam's, when I did more than 10k they asked me to fill out 'the' form
I said I will gladly fill out a form but not one that says I paid Cash....
Eventually they decided I should fill out a currency transaction one,
And I just put my name and DOB that's it... And they were happy with that...
Not sure what that will help them
What's your plan for yud shvat?

I agree with this wholeheartedly. I actually just brought this up in another thread a couple of days ago. I and everyone else have put so much time and effort into learning all of this that it really rubs some of us the wrong way when we are asked to spoonfeed info to n00bs who don't want to take the time to read and learn. As I have said before, I like helping people but once the attitude comes out, I'm done, that's not what I come here for.

Now you want to be spoonfed? Not on this form. Learn from your own experiences, we all here put in hours of reading and experimenting. You think we will just " teach you " what we found out through our trial and error ? No way, go back and read the last 200 pages and figure it out yourself.
