Offers for you not working

Postby MemberSince99 » Sat Jun 27, 2015 9:05 am

I just went online to check my PRG, and I went through the offers for you, and every offer I try to add gives an error message that says Sorry the offer you selected is currently unavailable please try again.

Anyone else seeing that?

Yup. Just tried adding the App Store iTunes $5 off $5 offer just to see if it was you but looks like it's some sort of temporary glitch. I thought maybe Amex was trying to keep only you from adding offers :D

Nope no glitch.. The only problem i`m getting from amex is from their travel site- When I go to amex travel the page keeps refreshing every 2 seconds.

Maybe I'm just late to the party here, but I just realized that Amex doesn't give you MRs for spending offset by offer credits.

For example, say you get a "Spend $25+, get back $10" offer and spend $25. You only earn MRs on $15 of the spending.

The credits are the important part - I just thought I got MRs, too. More surprise than disappointment.

That does make sense, its almost like getting a refund.

I finally linked to Amex on Facebook and Twitter...

...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.
