Is there any way to check how much of the 10X on 15K gas/grocery was already used?
Anyone?

Grocery purchases on an AU card get the bonus correct?

If I purchase something from Saks and get the $50 credit and need to return it will I have forfeited the credit (assuming they claw it back)?
Yes. Return to store credit, no issues.

The 6 month period is from the date of approval? For 10x groceries and gas

@Venilla

1) Go to Rewards Tab

2) Click On Point Summery

3) In the right column towards the bottom there should be a box that says
"Points by category since Jan. 1"

4) check under bonus earn

P.S. you have to deduct the signup bonus and any other bonus points, but it should give you a pretty good start.

billing cycle
this should be the same as
from the date of approval

ETA: I still think it's from date of approval but that's just my understanding

Ok, I'm IN AWE...

I was wondering how in the world am I going to figure out how much of my $15,000 did I already spend.

I started out trying to search through AmEx's "analytics" to see if anything would be helpful ( I even tried adding up my most frequent merchants ... (Yeah, I was kind of desperate not to have to add it all up transaction by transaction))

But then I thought, "Hey, why don't I chat, and ask how much I used. I know they are not going to have the answer. but it doesn't cost me anything ..."

... so that's what I did. And I was already telling myself "I told you so" when I got back a Caned response with the details of the promo. but the three dots pop back up and lo and behold there is the exact number of how much I spent (down to the cents mind you!)

now I probably shouldn't be so impressed, but I guess that's what's great about low expectations.


P.S. @Venilla
Is there any way to check how much of the 10X on 15K gas/grocery was already used?

Did he confirm the date with Amex? I confirmed my date and it was a few days later than I would've calculated myself...haven't tested post-cutoff transactions yet though.

I was approved on Nov 17, and my 10x end date was May 20, because it was delivered to me in the 19th. When was it delivered to you?
