Yesterday we wrote about a really good American Express Offer for You where you can score $50 statement credits (x3) on you $150 AT&T wireless bill. See the post here for all the info on the Amex Offer for You. There was a great community effort in the comments section, discussing how to utilize this deal and I thought that I would share my experience so far. I also wanted to remind you to save this offer if you haven’t already done so on to your eligible Amex card/s.

Boom! 1st $50 Statement Credit With AT&T Amex Offers Q&A

Questions and My Experience

  1. Reader Geoff asks, ‘Does the “small business” wording preclude our personal/family plans?’

I was able to pay my personal AT&T bill just now and received a notice from AT&T at 3:01 acknowledging  the payment and at 3:01 and 10 seconds; I received the congratulations email from Amex thanking me for using my Offer for You. Boom, a $50 statement credit for a bill that I had to pay anyway! Can’t beat that!

 2.  Reader Jeff asks, ‘Will AT&T allow me to prepay *that much*? I’ve pre-paid a few months in advance before but nothing like this. Wondered if anybody had any data points to share.’

I had a $40 credit on my account today from a previous Amex Offer for You and was able to pre-pay my first $150 to trigger the $50 statement credit. Since the Offer for You is good through 12/1/16, you have plenty of time to space this out a little, if you so desire. And I will remind you again when it gets close to the Offer expiring too!

If you have a ton of these Offers for You loaded, like reader Jeff (“we are at 4 offers loaded with the potential for up to 3 more,” then you probably don’t have as much time as others. But, you should still be able to take advantage of this Offer for You in plenty of time. Remember that each Offer is good for a $50 statement credit x3 with a $150 payment. So if you have it loaded on to 4 Amex cards, then you have to make 12 $150 payments to max this out.

 3. Reader Jeff also asks this interesting question, ‘It says the item has to be something that would “show up on the bill”. Basically, can I leverage these to pay for a new iPhone 7 when it inevitably launches in (hopefully) September? Or does it HAVE to be the bill?’

The terms state: Purchases for equipment or prepaid, U-verse, web hosting, or wireless services that do not appear on your AT&T wireless bill are excluded from this offer. I think the keys wording here is “that do not appear on your wireless bill” and that if equipment is billed to your monthly bill with your services, then it would be likely that a $150 payment to your ‘monthly bill’ should trigger the statement credit per the terms. This will be something to watch and see how it works. But, I am certainly with Jeff with this idea!

Bottom Line

I love Amex Offers for You and save so much money! Offers for You are just one reason to have an American Express Card and this Offer for You really pays! Check your Amex account and post a comment if you had this Offer for You or a different one. Also post a comment if you have any ideas on how to utilize this Offer for You if you have it on many cards.

  1. FYI – you can put a new phone on your bill (unless you do the NEXT Plan). otherwise you have to pay for your phone…i tried it the last round of Amex offers.

  2. Can you do three $150 payments spaced over three days to get the full offer credit? Or is it only once per billing cycle?

  3. @Rob, I’ve had success on the last round of offers to do random bill pay and not wait for the next billing cycle.

    On another note, just because you receive the “thanks” email from Amex does not guarantee the refund. On a recent round of offers, I used the Brio offer multiple times after getting the email and thinking success! But alas, the coding of “Brio” for the pending charge fell off and changed to “Bravo Online Gift Card” when it posted – I made multiple purchases thinking it was a done deal and alas, no credits for me.

  4. @Rob. You can do three $150 payments the same day. One nice thing to keep in mind is, ATT allows your to ‘overpay’ the bill also. If you do not have plans to cancel service with ATT soon, you can pay all 450 across 3 transactions and be done with this.

  5. Have you already received a $50 credit?
    My charge hasn’t even posted(still pending), let alone the credit post.

  6. Did you have to go through att.com/smallbusiness or just through your regular log in on att wireless?

  7. So, last night I made the first payment with my card and received the email. Figuring that was good enough for me I went all-in and made a single payment with each of the remaining 4 cards and have a pretty monster credit built up on my bill.

    A concern of note, however, is that I did not receive emails for the remaining cards – additionally, even waiting until this morning none of the Amex accounts is showing a pending $50 credit.

    If this doesn’t go through it will end up having been a bit of a hassle, but the money would have been spent eventually anyway. Just wanted to share the data point for others while I wait to see what happens.

  8. Has anyone received their credits yet? My charge changed fro pending to posted after 2 days but no credit as yet.

  9. Ok, so I’ll answer my own question. I received a $50 credit this morning for my first $150 payment. 8 more to go!

  10. @Alex I’ve used one card for three payments, all three credits have posted. Time to make payments with another card now.
