October 4 Update: Two new offers for Cobalt cardmembers, great offer for the BMO AIR MILES Business Mastercard & new Air Canada Transatlantic routes
American Express Cobalt Cardmembers check you emails again for two new offers:Receive a $5 statement credit when you spend $35 or more on Amazon.ca on October 5th only! This one is easy but you do have to register your card via the link the email. Remember to go through a mileage earning portal like AIR MILES Shops or Aeroplan eStore to earn miles on those Amazon purchases! Receive 2,000 Bonus Membership Rewards Points when spend $5,000 or more for the month of October. This does not require registration, if you get the email it means your card is automatically registered for this offer. I’m a little surprised the bonus points aren’t more, 2,000 points on $5,000 of spending isn’t a huge incentive however I figure since this card is a big earner on base points for eats and drinks (5x points) Amex considers you already getting lots of points. Still if you get the email and know you can $5,000 on the card the 2,000 points is worth at least $20 so it’s better than $0! I’ll try to see if I can hit that amount this month but I know I won’t move spending over to the card for 1x categories as the earn on some of my others cards would pretty much make the 2,000 bonus points a wash…
