American Express has several programs for cardholders that make paying an annual fee less painful. One of the easiest ways to make back your annual fee is to take advantage of AMEX Offers. Since AMEX operates as its own payment processor, it knows its cardholders better and can customize offers to a level not available to other banks.
While we’ve often received offers for travel on our Platinum, Delta and Marriott cards, I’ve found the best offers for everyday expenses often show on our no-annual-fee cards.
We’ve just received two offers on our AMEX Everyday card which were not on our Green or Platinum cards.
The first one was to get $5 back when spending $50 or more on a cable and internet bill. Since that’s a 10% rebate and I’m currently getting 5% back with my Ink Cash card, I’ll gladly put $50 a month on the AMEX Everyday until the end of May.
The second offer is to get 10% back up to $15 on paying your insurance bill with an AMEX Everyday card. Since this is an unbonused expense, I’ll pay $150 on the AMEX Everyday card to earn $15 and the rest on a card that earns 2% back or more.
These are little wins people don’t talk about. It’s sexier to write about how you use miles and points for a trip to the Maldives. Taking advantage of these offers isn’t as scintillating but they’re way easier for the regular person to understand.
