For the past 5 years I’ve received some pretty nice birthday presents on SBS thanks to free spend credits from AMEX.
Alas it seems we may have hit the end of the road, at least for this year according to the newly posted FAQs:
That’s disappointing, but in the end I’m very grateful for the fun times we’ve had in the past. Hopefully it will return next year, though it’ll likely be another year before we know whether that will happen or not.
In the meantime, there are plenty of other AMEX Offers that are offered throughout the year. Thanks to offers like $20 off $20 at Sam’s Club and $25 off $50 at BJs I wound up with tons of credits this year. That may not be quite as easy as SBS, but the opportunities still abound.
Besides we also had a fun ride with “SBS in July” this year 😉
