Check Your AMEX Account For A Targeted Costco $25 Free Spend Offer; Don’t Click Too Fast!

Related: Check Your AMEX Account For A Targeted Amazon $20 Free Spend Offer!
——————————————————————————
Update #2: While I didn’t get credited for a $25 online test purchase I was able to get credited for several hundred dollars of Costco Cash cards bought in store.  I just paid for my regular Costco purchases (heavenly Rainier cherries ($3.49/pound), N&K cheese ($3.99/pound), salmon ($8.33/pound), etc) with my AMEX that didn’t have the offer and then asked to buy a dozen $25 Costco Cash cards with a separate receipt for each one. The cashier rang up each card as its own transaction and I just swiped a different registered AMEX card for each one.

——————————————————————————

Update #1: In middle of creating separate account logins for each of my additional user AMEX cards it dawned on me that people who have a primary Costco membership are never targeted for the $25 spend on secondary or primary AMEX cards.

However people that have a secondary free Costco membership or don’t have a Costco membership are typically (though not always) targeted for the $25 Costco offer on both secondary and primary AMEX cards!

Meanwhile though, it was well worth creating an account for my free additional user cards, I’m about to have one insane shopping trip to Costco (assuming they don’t check for photo ID on each card :D )

Plus I have the account info saved for the next time there’s an awesome AMEX promo :)

Register all of your additional user cards ASAP.  Past promotions have filled up quickly and once it fills up they won’t take any new registrants unless you already saved the offer to your account.

AMEX has targeted some cardholders with a summertime present: A $25 statement credit for spending $25 in Costco stores.

To see if you’re targeted just login to your AMEX account, click on any of your cards to go the activity page, and then click on “AMEX Offers For You”.

None of my cards or my father’s cards have the Costco offer, but 2 of my wife’s cards and 2 of my mother’s cards have the offer.

If you also have multiple cards with the offer don’t rush to save the offer to your account!  Open up the Offers page for each card in a separate tab in the same browser.  Then go between the tabs to save the offer to each of your targeted cards.  Otherwise once you save the offer to one card it disappears from your other cards.

You can also register your secondary cards for their own AMEX login and see if they are targeted for the offer as well.

Offer page:

costco

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you click to save it you’ll find it saved under “My Offers”

costco1

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re not targeted you can try chatting with AMEX to see if they’ll extend the promotion to your account, but that’s a long-shot these days.

    @redbull3:

    You can ask someone who has membership to buy you a costco gift card (can be done online) and you can shop in the store with that card and pay the difference with any amex card.

    Downside of doing this is you can’t return anything.

    Thanks DAN I’m off to costco with $150!

    @Mark: Yes you can use the $25 to offset some of the membership cost. @Dan: Thanks Dan! I got it on one of my cards and one of my wife’s cards so I now have $50 to spend at Costco. This is a great offer as you can just spend $25 and get the full $25 back (it isn’t like $25 off of $75.) Dan, did you already go to 7-11 to buy $1500 in gift cards for all your Freedom and Discover card? :)

    Hi Dan,

    Perhaps this is obvious, but if you can explain I would appreciate. I have additional users on my cards and I have the offer on one card.

    I do not see a way of checking the offer for each additional user. Is the only way to do that by creating a log in and password for each additional user? Or can I see all the offers for each user on my online account?

    Also, if I have the offer, will all the other users have it and if I don’t have the offer will all the additional users not have the offer, or will each additional user be different?

    Thanks Dan for this and everything else you do!

    Hello Dan,

    As always, thanks for your help.

    On my cards I didn’t get a single Costco offer. On my wife’s 6 cards, I followed your advice, opened 6 different tabs, & this is the result (I checked for the Amex offer as well). On the Bus. Platinum I got the Costco offer. On the Blue Cash I got both (Amex & Costco). On 2 others I got only Amex. On the 2 remaining I got none of the 2 offers.

    rumor has it that costco will be flagging membership of those who abuse this progra by using multiple browsers- thats what the rep in brooklyn costco told me when i explained why i wanted to split my bill- so i suggest not splitting bill, rather entering store on separate occasions, so the costco membership number isnt flagged with the split bills. remember, costco takes a loss everytime this offer is activated and used, so beware wbout AU cards

    if I have multiple cards on one online account, will I get multiple refunds? The terms say “. Limit 1 statement credit per American Express online account” so it would seem that you would need a separate online account for each card.

    @se:
    You do not need multiple accounts. You’re misreading the terms.

    @Future:
    Secondary accounts will still show up on the primary login.

    I was fortunate to get 10 cards registered — spread among myself, wife, and 3 adult children. None of us are COSTCO members. I was planing to purchase membership for my wife and me. Then use 3 of the registered Amex cards to purchase gift cards for my 3 children. The children could then use the gift cards along with their registered Amex cards to make purchases. Will this work? If I wasn’t concerned about COSTCO asking for ID, I would just use their Amex cards myself.

    From the terms on AMEX Costco offer “Limit 1 statement credit per American Express online account.” .
    That seems to mean even for personal cards you needs separate user IDs?

    I set up additional user ID for AU. On one single credit card account I have 21 additional users. 10 of these card have the amazon offer. How do I reserve all these offers without losing some? This is only one of my amex cards, I still need to check AU on my other amex accounts. If each AU have a different User ID log in does that mean I can save each offer individually without risking the offer disappearing from my other AU?

    What people can do, if they have many authorized users, is buy a costco membership for each AU (one membership covers 2 people), and then the costco card will match the name on the credit card. Obviously you lose some of the profit, but all your AUs will be very excited to get free membership for a year :)

    If you want to do it one trip, go to costco with all your AUs and let them each buy gift cards with their credit cards and their costco card in their name.

    This is obviously only worth it if each AU has several cards in their name, so even after the purchase of the membership, there is still several cards left to earn the profit.

    Although it can likely work, even if you don’t buy membership for them, and just use their cards, that’s a YMMV. This will for sure work.

    Anyone have any idea how the costco membership works? Is the second card of a membership a household card that anyone under the same address (ie spouse, adult kids…)can use or do you have to choose a specific member (spouse/kid) and only that one additional person can use the costco card.

    I have Costco offers for myself, husband and 6 kids (ages 16+). I would like to make the most of my offers.

    was in Costco today. bought a $200 gift card. was swiping 8 cards, in middle manager came over to see what was going on. i told her each swipe gets a credit. i kept putting the card into my wallet and taking another one out, cashier didn’t realize it was 8 different cards, the manager realized something and asked me why i keep putting the card back and taking it out, just make a few separate swipes ?? i played dumb. when i was done she asked cashier for the transaction number…i left with my $200 card and receipt. anyway she can void the transaction or do something else ????

    “”If you also have multiple cards with the offer don’t rush to save the offer to your account! Open up the Offers page for each card in a separate tab in the same browser. Then go between the tabs to save the offer to each of your targeted cards. Otherwise once you save the offer to one card it disappears from your other cards.”” i registered one card so i lost the offer on the other card but i was able to remove the card from this online account & registered with its own & guess what … i got the offer back

    Brooklyn Costco. Tried using multiple cards with different names at 2 different registers, and they refused to let me use the cards with different names.
    I asked them for 3 $25 gift cards and to charge them separately. Next time, I will ask for $75 gift card and split the charges.
