If you have any American Express cards in your wallet, you’ll want to check them for the latest Amex Offer, which is a pretty generous one.
Let’s take a look at everything you need to know!
For those who are unaware, Amex Offers are limited-time promotions that give you a discount or allow you to earn extra points when you spend with certain merchants. To find these offers, you’ll need to log in to your American Express account, then scroll down to the bottom of the page. Your offers will load down here and you add any of the available offers to your card before making the purchase.
This newest offer can provide a pretty compelling value for those who shop at Dell, though it’s targeted, so not everyone will be eligible.
Here are the details:
- Spend at least $599, and get $120 back
- Can be in 1 or more purchases
- Must enroll to receive the offer
- Valid through December 31, 2022
- Use your enrolled card to pay
Maximizing Your Amex Offer
People are being targeted on a variety of credit cards, but this can be especially lucrative when paired with The Business Platinum Card® from American Express.
One of the benefits you’ll receive as an Amex Business Platinum cardholder is an annual credit of up to $400 with Dell. While this benefit is split in half throughout the year (meaning you’ll get up to $200 from January to June and a further credit of up to $200 from July to December), conceivably you can pair it with this new Amex offer to get $320 off your $599+ purchase.
There’s another Amex offer floating around that’ll give you 10% back on Dell purchases. If you’ve got this loaded to your card as well, that’s another $60 in cash-back you’ll receive.
You’d think that’d be all — but you’d be wrong. There’s more you can do to maximize your return for this purchase. Ever used a shopping portal? If you haven’t, you should. Shopping portals are free to use and allow you to earn additional miles or points on all your online purchases.
Rakuten is one of these portals, and it’s unique in that it allows you to earn American Express Membership Rewards points on your purchases. It also features the ability to earn cash-back with your Dell purchases. The current return is 10%, though it’s typically 2%.
Note that the 10% cash-back category is limited, so you’ll want to do your due diligence when shopping if you’re looking to maximize your returns. With a $600 purchase, you’ll end up earning 6,000 Amex points. We value Amex points at 2.2 cents apiece, which means you’ll be netting an additional $132 worth of points when stacking. Not bad!

This newest Amex offer promises lucrative returns for those looking to save money. It’s targeted and has appeared on a variety of different Amex cards, so check your account(s) to see if you’re eligible. If you are, be sure to stack offers to get the best deal possible.
