UPDATES: 
  • July 2, 2022: DoubleTree by Hilton Spend $225 or more, get $45 back available via Amex Connect. You can add the offer to your Amex Hilton credit card. 

Amex Offers
are one of the excellent add-on benefits that American Express makes available to its cards. If you can utilize those Amex Offers, you can save some money on travel, dining, shopping, and entertainment, to name a few. This potentially also saves you some money on your Amex card with an annual fee. 
 
Because Amex Offers are primarily targeted offers to specific accounts and cards, there are times that you wish the offer is targeted and available on a specific Amex credit card to really maximize an offer. For instance, there are Amex offers for Hilton stays. Still, the offer is only available on your American Express Membership Rewards (MR) points-earning American Express Cards and not your American Express Hilton Aspire Card. You wish the offers were available on your Hilton credit card to earn bonus Hilton Honors points while using the card to spend on Hilton stays and receive Amex statement credit at the same time. 

If you find yourself with the above scenario, the solution is to attempt to add the Amex Offer to a specific card through Amex Connect

    What is American Express (Amex) Connect?

    American Express advertises Amex Connect as "Connect to a world of special benefits." Simply put, the lesser-known "Amex Connect" is pretty much similar to Amex Offers in a way that you may find available Amex Offers on the Amex Connect portal. You can add that Offer to ANY eligible Amex card. Whereas Amex Offers, you can only add a specific offer to a specific Amex card. 
     
    While Amex Connect sounds too good to be true, not all Amex Offers that you see in your Amex account are available through Amex Connect, and not all offers there can be added without some trials and errors. 

    Below, I will show you how to add Amex Offers through Amex Connect to the right Amex card that you want.

    How to Use Amex Connect to Add Amex Offers to the Right Credit Card?

    It is essential to note the following:
    • If you already added an Amex Offer to your card via your Amex account, you will not be able to add the same offer again through Amex Connect. One Amex Offer per Amex card. 
    • Amex Offers always show up first in the Amex account, and then it takes a few days before those offers may show up on Amex Connect. When I see an Amex Offer targeted to the wrong card, I do not add the offer right away. Instead, I waited a few days to see if the offer could be available on Amex Connect.
    • It's worth mentioning that waiting also means that you may miss out on a popular Amex Offer because all Amex Offers are valid while supplies last. So don't wait too long. 

    Always check your Amex account first to see if an Amex Offer is targeted for the right Amex card. If not, try the following:
    • Go to the official Amex Connect portal website
    • Find the Offer. 
    • Click the Add to Card button. 
    • A popup appears asking for your name, card information, and email address. Fill it out and click Confirm
    • Amex will let you know whether you can add that offer or not. 
      • If you can, you should receive "Please Enroll on American Express.com" See the screenshot below. 
      • If you cannot, you will receive the message, "Our system is not responding at this time, please try again later." It could mean your account is not targeted, or you have already added that offer to another Amex card. Try to repeat the process using Incognito or Private browser mode. 
    • Click on the Go to your account button and log into your American Express account. 
    • You are presented with Amex card options to which you wish to add the offer. Simply pick the card that you want and click on the Continue button. 
    • Click on the Add to Card button like you usually do with Amex Offers, and you're done. 

    Add as many Amex Offers via Amex Connect as you like. You can either add the offer to the same card or a different card. 

    If you receive the following message after adding a second offer to your Amex card, completely closing the browser and repeating the steps above will resolve the issue.

    Sorry about that! It doesn't happen often, but offers are currently unavailable. Please try again later.
