AMEX Sync Offers – So, So Beautiful

Do you have American Express Cards? If your answer is yes, are you taking advantage of the American Express Sync offers? The likelihood is you’re not and leaving LOTS of savings and money making opportunities on the table.

American Express Sync offers are a great way to save/make money. I have 5 American Express cards in our household, and over the last year alone I’ve saved over $100 by taking advantage of these offers. I probably could have saved hundreds more but I spread my spend fairly thin between many credit cards so I don’t devote as much time as I should to maximizing the Amex offers. BUT YOU SHOULD!

In this post, We will  go through how to take advantage of the American Express Sync Offers.

Which Cards are eligible?

All American Express credit cards are eligible with the exception of Corporate credit cards, Gift cards and Prepaid card – Bluebird.

Is it possible to enroll multiple cards?

In most cases, You can enroll all your eligible cards for the promotions. However, there are a few offers that are targeted to specific accounts and there is no way to add them unless your account is targeted.

Remember that Authorized User cards are also eligible for the Sync offers. I have an Amex Platinum card and my parents and DD Mommy are AU’s on my account. That means I have 4 different credit cards that I can use to maximize the sync offer and get the discount 4 TIMES!
