Amex Milkbasket Offer: Get Rs.2000 cashback on loading Rs.2500

By | September 24, 2021
Amex Milkbasket Offer

American Express India has an amazing offer on Milkbasket that has been running silently for a while. You can save Rs.2000 with this offer on all Amex personal cards and here’s everything you need to know about it:

Offer Details

OfferGet 2,000 additional cashback to your Milkbasket account on loading ₹2,500 to wallet using American Express Card.
Offer period2 September 2021 to 2 December 2021
Activating the OfferUse Promo Code “AMEX” to avail this offer benefit.
FulfilmentCashback will be credited in 48 Hours from the date of Transaction.
Supp. CardsOffer also applicable on Supplementary Cards.
LimitsOffer can be availed once per Card/User during offer period.
Important T&CThis Offer is not applicable for Addresses which are already registered with Milkbasket. Read full T&C here.

This is an amazing offer indeed and the cashback does gets credited to Milkbasket a/c within 48 hrs from my testing. Here’s a quick look into the payments history:

However, here are few pre-cautions that you might need to take to make sure you get the cashback credit without any hassle.

  • You cannot use same address for Supp. cards as doing so won’t get you the 2K cashback credit. Use different address/name and also likely from a different mobile handset.
  • Seems they allow only one promo code on account and referral codes if used while creating the ac might mess up with this offer. Once the AMEX promo code is accepted, you would see this on home page or this on wallet load page.
  • Milkbasket delivers only to select gated communities. So before you go ahead and avail the offer, make sure your location is showing up on their address list.

Final Thoughts

Overall it’s a sweet offer that helps you save a nice ~45% on Milkbasket spends. However the offer is tricky, complicated and has certain T&C and maybe that’s why American Express is not actively promoting it.

But well, as you now know the ins & outs of the offer, you may go ahead and enjoy the benefits.

    It’s sad to see AAVIN is not even accepting AMEX as a payment option.
    Payment Gateway is Axis bank

    “This Offer is not applicable for Addresses which are already registered with Milkbasket” – this is not mentioned in T&C.
    I tried to avail – it didn’t stop me from putting promo code but they are not giving cashback saying it’s not valid as per policy.
    I have raised complaint with amex and waiting for reply. I feel it should have been clearly mentioned in the T&C.
    Anything I can do in this case?

      So they added it recently?
      If so I think you can demand for the cashback. Mayeb take the case with Amex instead of Milkbasket.

        Thanks Siddharth for suggestion – will take it up with Amex only then as milkbasket are not ready to listen…
        Actually, I think its amex fault because in my conversation with executive, he told its there in the T&C they have internally but if you see the T&C link sent by amex over email to customers, its still not there …( )

          They could have amended it later without updating this pdf, as that line is there on the website T&C.
          You may point out this and take it forward.

          1. Anshul Kothari

            Yes, I got a call from them. They told they amended on 21st Sep but I availed on 19th Sep. They were trying to negotiate with me giving 1000 to 2000 reward points as compensation but I refused and asked for full Rs. 2000/-. They said they will get back – let’s see….

      For the same address, I used my father’s phone number to sign up and used my MRCC to avail the offer. I got the 2000 additional credit in Milkbasket wallet on top of the 2500 Rs that I had added.

      1. Anshul Kothari

        good for you @prtkgpta! – can you please tell around what date you had availed the offer. Thanks.

    In my experience, I’ve never had a good experience with cashback offers on milkbasket. They have extremely tricky TnCs, so most would better off avoiding this “offer”.

    1. Siddharth Post author

      No, I see that the order amount gets debited from the wallet amount smoothly.

    1. Siddharth Post author

      “This offer is not valid on American Express Corporate Cards and/or Cards issued by a third party bearing the name or trademark or service mark or logo of American Express (“Network Cards “) issued in India.”

    Wish Amex has something like this on BB Daily, as MilkBasket doesn’t deliver in my location, and hopefully, if at all they run the offer, the T&C will be sensible enough. Amex has been running a month-end offer on BigBasket for the last couple of months, 10 percent off up to 500. Have been able to make use of it last 2 times…

    I am regular user of supr app. Tried checking out this milkbasket app because of the offer. Its just a piece of shit! Super buggy to do anything : add a address or add money, any basic workflow is pathetic. I’t think twice before i add money into such a app.

  6. Madhur Tiwari

    If we are using MilkBasket and change our address to any other, create a new account with the correct address and top up of 2500, will it work in that case?
