American Express has come up with a new targeted spend linked offer for Sep 2022 with vouchers upto 1,500 INR on spends. This is an un-expected promo targeted to select credit card holders, maybe to encourage them to spend more. Here are all the details you need to know,
|Offer||Spend Rs.X and get Rs.Y voucher|
|Offer 1||Spend 10K & get Rs.500 voucher (Reward rate: 5%)|
|Offer 2||Spend 25K & get Rs.1,500 voucher (Reward rate: 6%)|
|Offer period||17th Sep – 17th Oct 2022|
|Fulfilment||31st Jan 2023|
- Spends on Primary card only. Supp. card spends will not be considered.
- Choice of eVouchers: Amazon, BigBasket, Croma, Flipkart, Myntra or Swiggy
- Promo code will be valid for a period of 30 days from the date of issuance.
- Enrolment not required.
- Eligible cards: Gold charge, MRCC, Plat Reserve, Plat Travel
It’s interesting to note that both this offer and the recently received Kotak cashback offer doesn’t consider supp. cards spends.
Anyway, if you’ve received the offer, Congrats, that’s a nice 6% savings!
If you’ve not received the offer, it’s likely because you have other American Express Credit Cards which may get a better offer in the coming week.
I’ve not received the offer but I see that someone I know have received one. It’s a rarely used card so I think that answers the reason why some have got this offer.
It also means most would not have received the offer!
It’s interesting to see that American Express India has rolled out a small but a rewarding offer to select cardholders just before pushing their grand (hope so) Diwali offer of the year.
The offer period also makes it clear that this is not the Diwali offer targeted to these cardholders. So don’t loose hope yet. 😉
And if you’re wondering when Amex is going to take new applications, well, “next week” is what I hear, every week. Let’s see!
Have you received any Amex spend linked offers this week? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I have received the variant of the offer on MRCC, feel free to update your article
Just did, thanks.
Not been getting anything from Amex since a long time now. Got only this:
Enjoy ₹500* off on a minimum order value of ₹501 when you order from eatbetter .
But I guess it’s a generic offer to everyone as there’s no coupon code.
Seems, I’ve received the craziest of all.
Spend 1,20,000 for 500 Voucher.
Spend 1,80,000 for another 500 Voucher.
Spend 2,40,000 for another 500 Voucher.
Received “Make 5 transactions of Rs 1500 each” -> “Get a voucher worth Rs 500” on a rarely used Amex SmartEarn
Amex just went off the list from Intermiles Partners. Wonder what’s in store?
Did you get this offer through email or what
I am unable to get hold of any American Express Card although my district has been recently added to Serviceable areas of American Express because I am a Farmer and we don’t have ITRs, we only have J Forms which American Express doesn’t accept as income proofs. Is there any other way to get American Express Credit Card if one doesn’t have ITR or Salary Slip.
You need to file ITR on your own to reflect your income and taxes paid. J Form is just a revenue receipt for the sale of agricultural produce.
Received below offer on MRCC
– Make 2 transaction of Rs. 1500 each and get voucher worth Rs. 500..
Amex will soon start enrolling new customers since the ban is lifted. Can you please do a comprehensive review of Amex Cards only? I think that would be really helpful for those who want to apply for their first Amex card. (plus you can share your referral link)
Also, a comparison between Amex MRCC and Amex Gold Charge please, as I am looking to apply to one of those. I have a CIBIL of 775 and will apply for first Amex Card, and I am confused to choose one over the other.
And, do you have any idea if they will give increased joining bonus temporarily to boost onboarding new people?
Certainly, will refresh the reviews shortly.
As of now they’ve sufficient customers interested in taking new cards without offers. Offers may kick-in after a month is my assumption.
But we never know, they might change the mind anytime.
Thanks for responding.
Yes maybe initially they will not offer any joining bonus, but I hope so they do. That way I can also enjoy the Diwali offer that they will probably provide next month!!
New customers geenrally doesn’t get Diwali or any other spend linked offers for the first 2-3 months, as Amex need sometime to learn the spend pattern.
Damn, you sure do know a lot about credit cards. Thanks for the heads up!
So I will wait to apply until they offer some lucrative joining bonus.
Didn’t get any, likely because I cancelled PlatChrg..
No such offer received yet. I hold Amex Plat Reserve and MRCC
Haven’t received any offer on my MRCC. I remember Amex had continuous spend based offers for 2 months last year, received one of them. Hopefully, if not this time, there will be one around soon, and one would receive it too.
amex started taking card requests as on today. but cant see any sign up bonuses
How to get American express credit card in Dehradun
They’re bit strict on proof as of now, might get relaxed in sometime.
I received the different offer with my Amex Platinum Travel card.
Spend 3,00,000 or more before 10-Nov-2022 and get a Taj voucher worth INR 12,000.
I got the spend based offer on Platinum Travel… 5L spend and get 20k Taj gv
Received an email for Amex for Spend based offer.
Spend 3L or more till 10 Nov.2022 & receive Taj vouchers worth 12k.
Is it an offer or a joke?
Does AmEx refer to “net profit” or “total sales” when they mention “Net annual Income” on their site as a criteria for self employed?
“Total income” as on ITR Ack.
Do you know if the recent diwali offer by Amex was to a majority of MRCC users as well or not .I did not received anything on my card so just checking if that was the last offer ,like people have got on their platinum cards for spending 5 lakhs and getting 20k worth Taj Voucher.
I’ve got a spend based offer on my AMEX platinum charge card last week. Spend 7 lakhs and get 30k Taj vouchers!! Not so rewarding compared to last year’s offer of spend 4.5 lakhs for 40k Taj vouchers.
Was expecting a mention of this offer somewhere in this blog but couldn’t find any so assuming it’s targeted only for a small portion? Maybe others could get a better one in the coming week!
