    Default Question about Sync

    Does anyone know if you sync your card with Facebook, Twitter, XBOX, etc, if your authorized users can use their cards to get the offer that you synced your card with?

    For example, let's say I claimed the CPK offer from Facebook which is $10 off a $25 purchase. Could my husband (who's an auth user) use his card to claim the offer? We're on the same account, but it looks like our numbers are slightly different.

    On that same note if the cards are considered separate cards (even though on the same account) could we double dip offers? Like could we both claim the offer and both use it?

    Any help would be appreciated! (Though, really hoping that he can claim my offers, since he already tried to use one!)

    Yes you can. When the $10 statement credit came out for syncing your card into your xbox, I went ahead and synced me (primary), my brother (authorized user), and my mothers (authorized user) cards in the xbox and got 10 statement credit for each one. I also did the same thing for Small Business and enrolled in all our cards and got the 25 statement credit for each 25+ purchase we made to each of the cards

    So does that mean that each card acts separately even if it's on the same account? So if I synced my card for the CPK $10 off $25 offer and my husband used his card, then it wouldn't count?

    Also - did you have to unsync each card with xbox live after syncing it? Does that mean you won't be eligible for any other offers?

    Oh I'm sorry I misread your first post.

    Yes, even though your husband's card is linked to your account, he would still have to sync his card in facebook/Xbox to be able to get that offer. Example: you synced your card for the CPK $10 off $25 (I'm guessing it's the California Pizza Kitchen) and you tell your husband to use the offer on his card, it will NOT work. He would have to sync his own card on facebook to obtain that offer. So in a sense, each card acts as if its own separate account so you can basically use that offer twice. One for your card, one for his card. Just don't forget to sync both if you gonna use offer twice!
    For the Xbox live credit, I didn't unsync my card after syncing it. I made an account for my mother for Xbox live which took like 2 mins and then synced her card in it and left it like that. Got offer and synced my card and my brothers in our own Xbox live accounts and got offer. I think it says in the fine print if you unsync your card a little after getting your $10 credit, then that offer will be reversed.

    The rewards mall doesn't come included with the BCP I have. That's my only Amex card and I don't really buy much online to benefit from that. I prefer syncing and most offers that come out are places I usually go to. Too bad I'm not really much of a Halo fan else that 50 back from best buy offer would really be easy money.

    Rent Halo 4. You can rent it at Blockbuster. The achievement for the Best Buy offer takes no time at all. It's just completing a short mission. And you can do it on easy. Took me about an hour (and I suck at gaming - my husband is the gamer) and I've heard other people taking like 15 minutes.
