American Express Offers 10% Cash Back On Wireless Services
29 Mar
A new offer from American Express will give customers an extra incentive to make purchases at their wireless providers using a Blue Cash Everyday Card.

The company is offering up to $300 cash back with the promotion, by offering 10% off on purchases at wireless phone providers, up to $200 through the end of the year, and another $100 cash back in the first three months they have the card. Here are the details:

• Folks who apply for the Blue Cash Everyday Card by June 15, 2016 can earn up to $200 cash back in statement credits with a welcome offer that gives them 10% cash back on the first $2,000 they spend at any U.S. Wireless Telephone Service Provider through December 31, 2016.

• New cardholders can earn another $100 cash back, also in the form of a statement credit, when they spend $1,000 in purchases in the first three months they have the card. This $1,000 can be on anything, not just wireless service.

The Blue Cash Everyday Card has no annual fee and gives a good value cash back amount at grocery stores, gas stations, and department stores. Cardholders get 3% cash back at supermarkets, 2% back on gas station purchases, 2% back at select department stores, and 1% cash back on all other purchases. There is a limit of 3% cash back on the first $6,000 in grocery purchases, after which folks get 1% back on grocery purchases. Cash back is given as Reward Dollars that can be redeemed only as statement credits.

$100 welcome bonus fine print

The $100 welcome bonus offer requires cardholders to spend $1,000 or more in the first three months they have their card—that is, the first three months from the date the account is approved. If there is a delay in receiving the card, folks could have less than three months to make the $1,000 in purchases.

This could also happen if there is a delay in the merchant submitting the purchase to American Express. For example, when people buy things online, their cards are not usually charged until the product ships.

Purchases do not include fees, interest, balance transfers, cash advances, reloading of prepaid cards, or traveler’s checks. If there are additional cardholders on the account, their purchases do not count toward the $1,000 spending requirement.

All card applications must be received by June 15, 2016 to be eligible for the 10% cash back on wireless purchases offer.
