Usual YMMV, found it once logged into americanexpress.com under Amex Offers.  Basically $5 off $5, can be used 3 times!

Didn't have this offer on my card, but saw I had the Dollar Shave Club offer and I use their shave butter, so this post still helped me out! lol

rated:
I have this offer but I've never used Android pay before, lol. How exactly does this work and where can I use it? I assume not all places accept Android pay? Maybe I could buy some cheap giftcards somewhere?

Any insight would be helpful.

I believe you.  Some people will probably never do online bill pay either.  Even if it's free and saves money on stamps and checks.

I see Texaco and Chevron are on the list of places that accept Android Pay.
Anyone ever done this?  I assume there are directions on the pump if it's available?
Seems like an easy way to get $5 free gas at a pop.

  Did I say I added only 5?  
Nope, I made 3 reloads of 10 each.  But only half of that was my money...

Don't get caught up in details...

  YOU HAVE TO HAVE THIS OFFER under amex offers when you login to you account correct? So I can login from a pc to see if the offer is on my account?????
or do I "Download the Android Pay app from Google Play and add your American Express® Card by taking a picture of it." and then check if the offer is on my card????
It is not on ANY of my or my authorized users blue or hilton honors. Any way to get this offer added?



thx for any help

Sadly, Stop & Shop only sells fixed amount gift cards and the smallest they have is $10. Shoprite sells in any amount you want. I've used the offer on 12 cards so far, probably 30 of the 36 transactions have been to buy $5 gift cards at Shoprite. I don't spend enough at Acme to be worth it. I also used it on a few small-ish transacttions at S&S and Fairway that were a bit over $5.

I still have it on 4 cards. I hope to buy gift cards at Trader Joe's this weekend with those 12 transactions The offer expires on 5/3.  

rated:
Reminder to use this offer by Wednesday.

I finished up my cards at Trader Joe's on Saturday. It worked fine, although the cashier didn't seem to be thrilled to be doing 12 separate transactions.

I've found it to be buggy. At stores which accept apple/android pay I'm about 80/20 work/didn't work. And when it doesn't work the cashiers just throw their hands up and ask me to swipe/chip my physical card.

I was able to reload $10 twice but it is blocking me on the 3rd attempt.  I did two last night and was blocked on the 3rd reload attempt, tried again today and still blocked.
AmEx says they are not blocking, Android Pay says they are also not blocking.  Looks like CFA is blocking the 3rd re-load on their end.

Today is the last day.  Worst case I stop by Texaco and drop $5 in the tank.

Odd. It worked 100% reliably for me. And I did 48 transactions (16 cards). Do you have the latest version installed? What phone?
