For quite some time American Express has brought cardholders various ways to save money on purchases at specific retailers via loading that specific offer to your Amex card. Sometimes the offers are better than others, but there are several I was able to load to my Amex cards today that I think are worth a mention if you want your rewards credit card to not only earn points, but save a little money for your family.
Once you load the offer to your card you don’t need any coupons or codes at check-out, and you can stack this savings with any other sales or coupons you may have for your purchase. You can add the offers to your Amex cards in your online Amex account by clicking on “Offers for You” as shown below, or sometimes via tweeting a certain hashtag if you have synched your Amex for the Twitter offers. You can view some of the offers available on Twitter here.
The savings are delivered in the form of a statement credit on your Amex account.

None of these offers are huge by themselves, but they can add up, especially if you add the offers to multiple Amex cards (open the Offers for You page in different browsers before adding to your account).
Thanks to Amex Offers, my family has saved several hundred dollars in the past year on purchases we were going to make anyway!
