Save $30 on Cell Phone Bill (or Earn 3000 Amex MR Points)!

Written by on July 27, 2017 in Online Shopping

American Express cardholders: a targeted offer may give you the opportunity to save $30 (or earn 3000 Membership Rewards points) on your cell phone bill!

Targeted cardholders who add the offer (that’s important) can use their eligible card to save 10% on select cell phone carrier bills. AT&T, Sprint, T Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon are the only participating providers.

The offer is good through November 15 and cell phone bills must be paid online. Enrollment is limited, so check your Amex account soon. (Complete details are pasted below.)

Pay Your Cell Phone Bill Early and Often

You can use the offer multiple times until you earn a maximum of $30 or 3,000 additional Membership Rewards points. (It will be one or the other — your offer will stipulate which you receive).

For example, if your monthly cell phone bill is $100, you’ll receive a $10 statement credit (or 1000 additional Membership Rewards points) each time you pay with your card.  In this scenario, you can take advantage of the offer three times.

This should work in conjunction with pre-existing discounts you receive on your cell phone bill. My father-in-law enjoys a 15% veterans discount. He added the offer on his Hilton Honors Card from American Express and will now get additional 10% off (until he maxes out the $30 savings) and earn him some Hilton Honors points.

Were You Targeted?

To see if you were targeted, log in to your Amex account and look under the Amex Offers & Benefits section on your account dashboard. Hopefully, this will be waiting for you:

American Express cell phone offer, good through November 2017.



If it’s not, you weren’t targeted. (Sorry.) If it was, add that puppy to your account!

Of my eight Amex cards, only two were targeted: my personal Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express and Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express cards.

(Thank you to Deals We Like for the heads-up on this one!)
