Back to School with Amex Offers

Back to School with Amex Offers

If you’re an American Express Card Member like me, you pride yourself on being smart with your money. That means making wise choices and minimizing debt. That can be tough this time of the year, when you start seeing those three dreaded words on signs and in ads EVERYWHERE. You know the words I’m talking about: “Back to School.”

American Express Offers saves you money

 Back to School season means purchasing a never-ending list of school supplies, buying new shoes and clothes, and picking up a new lunch box and backpack. And that’s just for starters! You may need to invest in a laptop and/or cellphone for your student. Plus, if you have a kid heading off to college, you have to set them up with everything they need for their dorm room.

Thank goodness for Amex Offers— making life easier AND making it a cinch to save money!

The Lowdown on Amex Offers

Here’s the scoop on Amex Offers. This Card Member benefit makes it simple to save bucks while shopping. You have two choices:

1. Go to your American Express online account to log in and see the offers right on your account dashboard. Then just click on ‘Save Offer’ to save the offer to your Card, or…

2. Connect your Amex Card to social networks including Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter and TripAdvisor (it’s totally secure) and save offers to your card right there. All you have to do is buy stuff with the card (like you usually do) and see the saving stack up as statement credits on your bill. Easy-peasy!

It’s All About You

With Amex Offers, it’s all about you– and I mean that in the best possible way! Amex curates the Offers specifically for you, based on the places you like to shop and your current location. No matter where you are, Amex is on your side, sending you Offers from brands you love AND that you can use right away. Pretty neat, huh?

Keeping it Simple
