American Express in entering the digital payment arena with the launch of American Express checkout. American Express checkout allows you to use your americanexpress.com login and password through participating merchants to pay for your items without having to enter your card details. It is autofilled once you authenticate.
To celebrate the launch, American Express is offering a $10 statement credit through September 7, 2015 for using the service with these online merchants:
The Wall Street Journal
I had an existing NewEgg account and created an order for a $10 restaurant certificate. I received the certificate and then also the $10 statement credit. I then began to wonder if you really had to purchase $10 worth of merchandise in order to get the credit and the answer is – you don’t.
A couple of things to note: It seems that gift certificates and digital items are limited to 2 per day and you have to wait at least 48 hours between orders. This $10 offer is available to all cards on your account including authorized user. In order to do this, you will need to create separate Amex logins for each authorized user.
In my case, where I have one Amex login for three of my Amex cards, I was able to use this same login for three separate transactions and received the credit three times. However, your authorized users will not show up under your Amex login and this is the reason you will need to create seperate logins.
Enjoy your free money!
