Amex Offer for Cell Phone Bills

March 8th, 2015 at 08:43 am

Did those of you with a cell phone bill and an American Express card see the latest offer? Charge your cell phone bill of $75 or more and get a $10 credit. Up to three times!! That's $30.

I currently charge our large cell phone bill for four people with Verizon to my US Bank card for 5% cash back. I'm currently hoarding my rewards with them to get a $25 bonus for redeeming $100 or more. This will be the last time I can do that as they are ending that bonus offer at the end of the year.

However, this Amex offer is better than 5% cash back. I have read that others have been able to make multiple charges for the same bill when their bill is over the $75 and get the $30 credit in one month. However, it could be spread out over three months if one had a bill closer to the $75 range.

My plan is to make three separate charges for our upcoming Verizon bill (it is generally $246!) and get all $30 in one month. I did just make a change to our data plan, so I already have some credits coming our way and a lower bill in the future by $7. If this months bill is under $225, I will need to break up the payments. Likely two $75 charges this month, the remainder to the US Bank card, and then next month, one $75 payment to American Express, and the remainder to US Bank for the 5% reward.

I need to check and see if my husband has this offer on his American Express. Just checked, he does have this offer and it was already added...I just forgot. If so I can do this offer on his card after doing it on mine, since it is available until July. Some people on that forum link above paid cell phone bills of other people to get the offer!

I'm excited because this lower bill on our cell phone bill will help offset that really high electric bill we have this month! Smile

Do you have this American Express offer? Will you use it or did you already use it?

    That's a great offer! Our bill never gets to even $60, let alone $75. But I added the offer just in case. It did remind me to look through the other offers.

    That's too bad about the USBank offer ending after this year! I'll have to remember to start hoarding money for it. I don't think we need to right away since we rack up points fairly quickly, but maybe after I redeem the next chunk of points.

    Great offer! I'm going to go sign up and change the payment method for the next couple of months... I have to put a reminder to check the AmEx offers. There is usually one that applies to our situation.

    I just did it and will do it by splitting the bill between me and my husband
