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


UPDATES: 
  • August 2021: Hilton brands Amex Offers are targeting Amex MR points earning cards. Use Amex Connect if you want to add those offers to your Amex Hilton cards instead. The following Hilton offers are available via Amex Connect now:
    • Hilton Hotels, Curio Collection & Canopy
    • DoubleTree by Hilton & Tapestry
  • Best Western Hotels & Resorts
  • Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas
  • Stein Eriksen Lodge Deer Valley

Amex Offers
are one of the nice add-on benefits that American Express makes available to its cards. If you are able to 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 that has an annual fee. 
 
Because Amex Offers are mostly 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, but the offer is only available on my American Express Membership Rewards (MR) points-earning American Express Cards and not my American Express Hilton Aspire Card. I wish the offers were available on my Hilton credit card so that I don't only earn Hilton bonus points while using the card to spend on Hilton stays but also receive Amex statement credit. 

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 and 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 am going to 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 important 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. This is why when I see an Amex Offer that's targeted to the wrong card, I do not add the offer right away. Instead, I wait a few days to see if the offer could be available on Amex Connect.
    • It's worth mentioning too 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 Amex Connect portal. 
    • Find the Offer. 
    • Click the Add to Card button. 
    • A popup appears asking for your name, your card's information, and your 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 "Thank you for enrolling your Card in our offer [the name of the offer]" See screenshot below. 
      • If you cannot, you would receive the message "Our system is not responding at this time, please try again later." It can possibly mean your account is not targeted or you already added that particular offer to another Amex card already. Try to repeat the process using Incognito or Private browser mode. 
    • You're done and simply click on the Close button to close the popup. 

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

    Please note if you receive the following message after adding a second offer to your Amex card, completely close the browser and repeat the steps above will resolve the issue.

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