Thanks OP. Easy $100 as it was on both mine and my wife's card (same account, different numbers)!  My son will check his tonight, could be another $50.

wondering if this will work on a cell phone bill.  these are the terms:

Terms

Enrollment limited. Offer valid on wireless services at verizonwireless.com or by calling 1-866-804-6848. Offer not valid in-store or at kiosks. Offer valid on wireless services, equipment and accessories. Offer is non-transferable. Must add offer to Card and use same Card to redeem. Limit 2 statement credit(s) per American Express® online account. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 2/21/2017, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from merchant until all items from your qualifying purchase have been provided/shipped by merchant. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer.

Mine was on a platinum card and 2500 MR points for spending $100+.

rated:
Can these monies be applied to a prepaid account?
If monthly bill is say $50 per month, is there a way of meeting the $100 threshold to get the $25 statement credit?

Well, you could pay $100...  Then the next month you won't have to pay the other $50.  I just paid $100 x 4 (actually $100, $100.01, $100.02, and $100.03 because they have to be different amounts for Verizon to accept them same day), which is a month plus some.  Worth prepaying for $100 in credit.

$100 in credits posted the next day.

Is there any reason that this won't stack with the 10% off cell phone payments that also appeared on some of the same cards?

rated:
No available on Delta Platinum Amex.

got on 2/6 cards. I ordered the $100 gift cards (already received the $25 credits), since I wasn't sure online bill pay would work.

  4/4 - thanks for the idea.  I will get gift cards too.

Five cards, no love.

Got it on 6 cards. 4 from a Blue account and 2 on an AMEX EveryDay account. Not available on Blue Cash or Blue Cash Everyday cards. Sadly, I just had a $180 bill autopaid last week.

I'd say yes.

I would certainly hope so. The offer specifically says "Offer valid on wireless services, equipment and accessories." Unless English was not the previous poster's native language, it should be obvious that "wireless services" = cell phone bill. Thus the red rating for that post.

Anybody try this on fios yet?

  Just tried now because I am too far overpaid on my wireless account ... and got the Amex notification instantly.

Made two separate payments, got two separate instant notifications on my phone.

rated:
I can confirm that this works on FIOS.  I did two payments on two separate dates for $100 each and got instant notifications that I have used the offer.  If you want to use back to back, you will need to change the amount so that both are not the same value (ie: 100 & 100.01); otherwise, the second one will not go through as they think you are accidentally double paying a bill.

So I used this twice last month on one card, got both credits, but the charges showed up with different names -- VERIZON WIRELESS FOLSOM CA and VZWIRELESS MY VZ VN 800-922-0204 FL. Even stranger, the offer still shows as available on that AMEX account. Anyone else see this? I have other cards to use, but with this new news about it also working on FiOS, I could easily use an extra redemption over there.

  the offer says $50 max. I have tried the similar AT&T offer on Amex, they do not give after the max offer amount has reached.

  It's a website bug.  Had the Mobil offer in December valid 2x.  Used it twice and totally forgot I used it twice.  Purchased Mobil 3rd time and no rebate.

I wish I had this offer, checked my wife's Amex also but not there either. Wanted to buy two Google daydream views and split with a friend who also didn't have the deal on their Amex.

PSA that this offer is expiring FEB 21.  On my dad's wireless only account, verizon only allowed max of $500 credit.  On brother's FIOS triple play account, it only allowed a payment that does not exceed 6x the current balance.  On my FIOS internet ONLY account, it lets me continue to pay despite having a $600 credit balance.

I just used it on my last 4 cards that had the offer. I used 2 on my FiOS account and 2 on my VZW. Got emails for all of the charges (although strangely, one of the FiOS emails took an extra half hour to be sent).

I also ran into the 6x issue on FiOS. I only had a $12 balance, so I just paid it with a different card. Once I got to a zero balance, it had no problem with my paying as much as I wanted and having a negative balance. A really stupid "feature" they have, especially since it's so easy to get around.

Then why did you bother posting? Will you do this in every thread you're not interested in???

Thanks!!!  I added this back in December, but forgot to check back on whether anyone successfully used it on FiOS (we switched to T-Mo).  I just made two payments to my FiOS account of $100.00 and $100.01 (to avoid the duplicate payment on the same day prohibition) and got two pop-up messages about using my offer.

Remember: If you have it, remember this offer ends tomorrow!!!
