There are many benefits to getting an American Express card like the Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN or the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express, even if they don’t come with a huge Membership Rewards signup Bonus. For example, members can get 20% off gasoline through the end of the year. Talk about a great discount before filling up the tank to visit family during the Holidays. If you aren’t driving, don’t worry, Amtrak travel is also discounted by 20% as is spending with plenty of other businesses. All you have to do is know how to activate the offers in your account. Once you do the path to savings is simple.
How To Add Offers To Your Card
Step 1: Sign-in to your American Express Account
The first step towards getting more savings from your American Express card is to log-into your account online.
Step 2: View “Offers For You”
Once logged into your account, scroll down until you see the “Offers For You” section, click it.
Step 3: View Available Offers
The latest offers for your account will be shown. You’ll see discounts from well known stores, restaurants, gas stations and other location. My favorite offer right now is the 20% off gasoline at BP gas stations through the end of the year.
Step 4: Enjoy big discounts like 20% off BP Gasoline
BP is offering 20% discount ($5 off $25 or more purchase) through the end of the year. The trick is to get your purchases just at the $25 mark to maximize the discount.
Terms And Conditions
Get a $5 statement credit each time you use your enrolled Card to make a single qualifying purchase of $25 or more at the pump at any BP station by 12/31/2013.
Offer not valid for online purchases or any other purchase not made at the pump. Excludes Convenience Stores, Aviation, Marine, Wholesale, and Other Services. Enrollment Limited. Qualifying spend must be met in a single transaction. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 12/31/13. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you will not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. If your Card is replaced during the promotional period, call the customer service number on the back of your Card for assistance. Want to earn more savings with BP? Visit www.bpdriverrewards.com.

Step 5: Enjoy more big discounts like 20% off Amtrak travel

If you order items during the offer period but they are not provided to you until after 2/15/2014, it may not count towards determining whether your purchases qualify for the offer. Enrollment for the offer is limited. Limit 1 statement credit per American Express Card across all American Express offer channels. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 8 weeks after American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchases.

Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchases are returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit.
