Got in on my Blue Cash Preferred. Just in time for a cross-country trip!

Note: The terms and conditions make it seem that this only works on EZ-Pass and not with other tolling programs.

Got it on my BCE. Probably could max this out w/o prepaying.

rated:
Probably obvious but you can pre-pay NYS EZ-pass. So, if you have multiple amex offers, you can just prepay the tolls by $200 and bank the free $20 from Amex. I got a confirm email that the prepay transaction "used" the Amex deal so the credit works. Then, if for example, you have the Ez-pass hooked up to your chase sapphire preferred, you can just switch it back.

I take their offer benefiting car drivers only  and not applicable to, or with an offer for public transportation payments, as a policy statement against people who don't drive and who use public transportation.

Massachusetts isn't listed, will it work for EZ Pass here?

I don't know. What do you suppose "Valid only in select states" combined with the list of states where it's valid means?

How about people who don't pay tolls at all? Is it a policy statement against them as well?

Did you make payment for a Mass toll provider or another state?  

rated:
Got it and used it to prepay $200 to get the $20 back. I'll use this credit in about... oh 2 months.

rated:
I made a payment to mass Ez pass and did not get the credit. Looks like it's excluded in the fine print.

In other news, the specific Restaurant offers only benefit folks who eat at restaurants, but not those who only prepare their food themselves from a supermarket or their own farm.

  No one has to go to restaurants, so they often have offers, like a lunch special, to encourage customers to come, or ĉome there instead of patronizing competitors.  Unless you are unemployed by circumstance, retired, wealthy enough to not bother, leeching off the taxpayers like someone I know, or otherwise exempt from it, everyone else has to go to work, and unless you can bicycle or walk, has to pay for a method of transportation to get there.  Just because Amex works out a promotion where a specific restaurant makes an offer offer through Amex, doesn't mean Amex has to use it's own money to make the same offer for every restaurant in the country.  I find it hard to believe that Amex worked out a deal with every toll collection agency in the country where they all chose to give their customers a 10% discount, and Amex isn't paying for this themselves. Giving a rebate to toll payers and not public transportation users, both of which payments often are made to the government, clearly favors car drivers for, what for anyone who is too far or can't bicycle or walk to work, is a necessity.

  Amex is trying to encourage people to use their cards to "everyday" expenses -- this would include tolling.

When it comes to the heaviest users of public transportation, many people don't directly pay for it -- since they use payroll reduction plans to pay their commuting costs. Amex can't get these people to pay for their "everyday" commuting expenses, because the payroll deduction is converted to a voucher or stored-value card.

Bump.

If you have a MassDot EZPass transponder, don't wait until 10/31 to make that Amex CC one-time payment.
MassDot said: Customer Notices:
Massachusetts will be activating all electronic tolling the weekend of October 28 and due to the switchover of toll features including account information, this website will be unavailable and offline from 10:00 p.m., Friday, October 28, through November 1 at 7:00 AM. Thank you for your understanding as the Commonwealth changes to all electronic tolling.

  I hope AmEx doesn't read stuff like this and decide it's just not worth dealing with people and their nonsense and end the program.  If you're not interested in a particular offer, don't load it onto your card.  I, for one, would have been thankful to receive this offer and would have made maximum use of it.

My head just exploded. I can't believe you are trying to rationalize and defend your stance. If you actually understand business dynamics and what AMEX is intending to do, there would not be any of this non-sense.

AMEX is a business, not a social equality program.
