...and the offers don't seem any better?

I thought there was supposed to be some plethora of offers available through those channels that weren't available through the regular website or app.

I thought I would be able to line up a bunch of easy offers, like $5 off $5+ on iTunes...but those easy offers seem absent from Twitter and Facebook.

Am I doing something wrong? Not looking hard enough? Or are those easy offers not accessible to everyone with a social media connection?


The offers shown in Facebook/Twitter are the same ones that appear in the Amex login website. I only use the Facebook link offers on cards that don't show offers online such as Amex network cards that are issued by other banks (Fidelity Amex, Wells Fargo Propel Amex, etc) along with Amex Serve.

The Amex website seems to give a few more ones sporadically that Twitter and Facebook lack. The Amex website seems to be the only place to get the $X off $X+ kind of offers (except for special things like Small Business Saturday).
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG, Prestige (retention)
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt
SD with activity alerts, might close: Arrival

Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech, BofA Travel PH, Aviator Red

I'm not sure which ones those are, but I'm assuming those are the targeted offers only seen upon logging in your Amex login. Every now and then they'll give some targeted offers where you will only see online Amex login. Recent ones such as:
Target/Walmart spend $100 get $30 back x5
Any airline spend $300 get $50 back
