American Express has a slew of Amex Offers out today that are exclusively for consumer Platinum cardholders and Centurion cardholders with active accounts as of 11/1/2020.  We’ve previously posted two of the best offers (BestBuy and The Home Depot).  In this post you’ll find a full round-up, along with my thoughts about which ones are worth pursuing…

I’ve sorted the following offers roughly from best to worst (but beauty is in the eye of the buyer, as they say).  All of these offers expire 6/30/2021…

  • bestbuy.com®
    • Spend $50 or more, get $50 back. Up to 2 times (total of $100).  Get a $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $50 in one or more transactions online at bestbuy.com® by 6/30/2021. Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $100). See terms for exclusions.
    • Notes: You can max out this deal and earn $100 back with a single $100 purchase!
    • My thoughts: This is great.  Essentially get $100 worth of items free from Best Buy online!  Best Buy even sells some 3rd party gift cards which should work (despite the terms saying otherwise). Don’t try to buy Best Buy gift cards though because the charge will be from CashStar and won’t earn the rebate.
  • HomeDepot.com – Ship to Home or Store
    • Spend $50 or more, get $50 back. Up to 2 times (total of $100).  Get a $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $50 in one or more eligible transactions online at HomeDepot.com by 6/30/2021. Excludes “Scheduled Delivery” shipping and in-store pickup. Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $100). See terms for exclusions.
    • Notes: You can max out this deal and earn $100 back with a single $100 purchase!
    • My thoughts: This is another great deal.  Essentially get $100 worth of items free from The Home Depot online!
  • Instacart
    • Spend $250 or more, get $50 back. Up to 2 times (total of $100).  Get a $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $250 in one or more transactions online at instacart.com or through the Instacart mobile app by 6/30/2021. Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $100). See terms for exclusions.
    • My thoughts: If you shop through Instacart anyway, this is a solid deal for up to 20% back.  Since Instacart marks up store prices, I wouldn’t do this just for the rebate if you’re not already an Instacart shopper.
  • Goldbelly
    • Spend $100 or more, get $50 back. Up to 3 times (total of $150).  Get a $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $100 or more online at goldbelly.com by 6/30/2021. Limit of 3 statement credits (total of $150). See terms for exclusions.
    • My thoughts: Goldbelly is apparently an online marketplace for “regional and artisanal foods.”  I haven’t bought from them, but it might be worth trying for a 50% rebate on $100 spend.  Please comment below if you have recommendations for or against Goldbelly.
  • WineInsiders.com
    • Spend $30 or more, get $30 back. Up to 2 times (total of $60).  Get a $30 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $30 or more online at wineinsiders.com by 6/30/2021. Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $60). Excludes Refer A Friend promo codes at checkout. See terms for exclusions.
    • My thoughts: It looks like WineInsiders charges about $15 for shipping, so you should be able to use this deal to get a $15 bottle of wine for free, $30 worth of wine for $15, etc.  Since this can be used twice, I’ll happily buy a couple of bottles of free after rebate wine.  Based on what we now know about this deal, I’m going to pass on it entirely.  See: Wine Insiders Amex Offer — Be Cautious With Stacking.
  • Scribd – Book, audiobook, and podcast subscription
    • Spend $9.99 or more, get $9.99 back. Up to 5 times (total of $49.95).  Get a $9.99 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $9.99 or more online at scribd.com or through the Scribd mobile app by 6/30/2021. Limit of 5 statement credits (total of $49.95). See terms for exclusions.
    • My thoughts: Since Scribd offers a one month free trial, this basically extends the free trial to 6 months if you sign up soon.  I’m going to pass, but this could be a good deal for those interested.
  • Home Chef
    • Spend $50 or more, get $50 back.  Get a one-time $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $50 or more online at homechef.com by 6/30/2021. Limit of 3 statement credits (total of $150 back) per Card Member. See terms for exclusions.
    • My thoughts: If you’re interested in trying out this service or if you already subscribe, then this is worth pursuing.  I’ll pass.
  • The Container Store
    • Spend $150 or more, get $50 back. Up to 2 times (total of $100).  Get a $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $150 in one or more transactions in-store at The Container Store or online at thecontainerstore.com by 6/30/2021. Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $100). See terms for exclusions.
    • My thoughts: If you’re going to buy from the Container Store anyway then this is a nice rebate!  I’m going to pass.
  • Samsung
    • Spend $1,000 or more, get $200 back. Get a one-time $200 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $1,000 in one or more transactions in-store at Samsung Experience stores or online at samsung.com/us or through the Shop Samsung app by 6/30/2021. See terms for exclusions.
    • My thoughts: If you’re going to buy a new laptop or something from Samsung anyway, then $200 back is a sweet offer.  That said, this one doesn’t seem different from many other Amex Offers we see all the time.
  • Avis Car Rental
    • Spend $250 or more, get $75 back. Up to 2 times (total of $150).  Get a $75 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $250 or more to pay for eligible rentals in-store at Avis Car Rental or online at avis.com/amexoffers by 6/30/2021. Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $150). See terms for exclusions.
    • My thoughts: I’m very surprised that this is listed as an exclusive offer for Platinum cardholders. We see similar car rental offers all the time.
  • Equinox Virtual Personal Training
    • Spend $780 or more, get $130 back. Up to 5 times (total of $650).  Get a $130 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $780 or more of an Equinox virtual personal training session package online at amexvpt.equinox.com by 6/30/2021. Not valid for purchases at equinox.com. Limit of 5 statement credits (total of $650). See terms for exclusions.
    • My thoughts: $130 back from $780+ spend means that, at most, you can get 16.6% back.  If you were already paying for this service, then you might as well go for it.  I’m going to pass.
