ICICI Amex Offer: Get 5X Rewards on online spends

Amex 5x rewards offer - ICICI bank
American Express 5x rewards offer – ICICI bank

Just as you may know, ICICI sends tons of marketing emails that’s usually of no use (except amazon super value days offer) and they miss out sending the important ones, almost every single time. Here’s one such decent offer on ICICI Amex cards.

With Emeralde Amex you generally get 1% reward rate, so with this offer you can easily earn 5% on spends, which is great.

Also, the Max. bonus points is actually 10,000 which is limited to 5000 bonus points (4X) per month, so that’s a very good number that you could achieve on total spends of Rs.30,000 a month (in case of Emeralde).

While the offer doesn’t mention anything about the targeted nature, as long as you hold an amex variant (non-intermiles card), you must be eligible for the offer.

Bottom line

With a very good return on spend and decent max. cap, it’s certainly a great offer that you shouldn’t miss. These offers are usually pushed by Amex, so we may expect similar ones on IndusInd Amex as well. Let’s wait and see.

Do you plan to avail this offer – if so on which Icici Amex are you planning to use? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

      Hi Siddharth,

      Your articles are absolutely fantastic and offer tons of knowledge to beginners like us to even expert card users I must say. Thanks for all your posts.

      Just a quick question, the max 4x bonus points on the ICICI Amex offer is mentioned as 5000, so for Emeralde card we would need to spend Rs 31,250/- a month to maximum utilise the offer?

      So, @16 (4x) points per Rs. 100 We would get 5000 bonus points a month, please confirm. Thanks

        Most welcome, Rajiv!

        Its 30K per month on Emeralde as per my calculation to max out the 5k/month cap.

    Is it even worth owning an ICICI AmEx if you can get an AmEx directly? I’ve been a longtime ICICI customer – over 15 years, and it is my primary account. Their customer service has been decent, but their credit cards and offers have pretty much been underwhelming. Esp. given how much money I bank with them vs HDFC – ICICI has always insisted on charging me a fee for credit cards, while my Regalia is LTF with an SB account balance of Rs. 25000.

    Yes, AmEx does charge a fee, but their customer service _without_ a personal banker is miles ahead of ICICI. Plus the offers are quite decent, and I make the money back with the spend-based rewards.

      Well, what if you need ICICI offers too? That’s when you need ICICI Amex.
      Generally most ICICI Visa/MC cards are useless except Amazon Pay card, so people go for Amex variant for little bit more rewards.

      Icici bank is the worst, after being with them for 5 years and holding a fd linked card with them, they never offered me a direct crrdit card just because i am self employed with a private limited company. Also they messed up my credit score report by reporting things, addresses etc that never belonged to me. I will never bank with these scammers.

    I used to have the Sapphiro Jet Airways and a coral card. It was a fantastic jet airway miles earner, but I hated the payback reward system. So as soon as JA folded, I gave up the sapphiro and even the coral. Citi is my primary miles collector and as long as icici has payback, I don’t think I will ever use their cc.

    Siddharth, this seems to be targeted offer. Pls check the definition of “customer” in terms and conditions.

      I think as long as you get the success sms upon giving missed call, you should be fine. ICICI always works that way in the past.

    thanks for updating. because I haven’t received any communication from bank. But I think I will get 5% reward on my amex coral card because coral amex already giving 1% reward as payback points for online transaction so it would can be considered 5% as of current offer.

    I have received Rubyx LTF and i never used Amex variant at all also rubyx i used to use for BMS 1+1 and now my card is idle with no purchase at all. Either ICICI has to do something with reward points not the payback which is absolutely crap.

    They are offering 5x here but they have reduced award rate / benefits somewhere else.
    I got a call from my home branch that they are offering Rubyx now LTF. I was surprised and immediately checked it in iMobile, Yes it was true, Then i went to bank card section and had a look at the benefits. They have almost changed everything. New conditions on lounge access and movie offers. Now Even with LTF, this card looks like a liability instead of asset.

      @Mr. Verma
      What is changed with BMS ? I still see 300/ticket and i have benefited a lot with it considering its LTF card. Airport lounge i am not bothered of and payback is waste.

    “Avail 25% discount upto Rs.150 on purchase of minimum 2 movie tickets per transaction on BookMyShow and Inox. The offer can be availed two times in a month (once each on American Express and Mastercard variant)”. This is mentioned on the site now.

      Just noticed it 🙂 Still considering it as LTF only if you absolutely require it like in my case for a backup card you can get it. I have seen that for sapphiro card nothing is changed. This is done for people to convert LTF rubyx to paid sapphiro card.

        Atleast shopping on amazon via the payback app gives 2x ie 10p/100(with cap ofcourse). Additionally the regular ICICI 4p/100 on my emeralde card is also there.

    For ICICI coral Amex we get 4 points for every Rs.100 spent on online transactions.
    So we get 5% as reward points for the above offer
