Guide to American Express Canada 'Amex Offers'

Last Updated on January 25, 2023

Amex Offers as they are known right now were launched in 2019 - however they have actually been around much longer. I have statement credits dating back to 2014 and online accounts state they'll show past offers up to 2011. The difference now with the Amex Offers launched in May of 2019 is a much more aggressive approach from Amex with many more offers. Taking cues from south of the border where Amex Offers are a huge deal, American Express Canada embarked on making the program similar. Prior to 2019, I received maybe 1 or 2 offers per year, if that, now that seems to be the norm every few weeks! What follows here is our summary of current Amex Offers followed by a guide to and tips for making the most of Amex Offers.

 How to find and register for the offers


For most offers you should receive an email from American Express to know that you are eligible to register for them. However you can also check to see what offers you are eligible for by signing in to your American Express account online or via the Amex mobile app. Here is a quick guide on how to find and register for the offers.

Amex Account Online

Once you log in to your account online, scroll down the screen until you see the Amex Offers section. It will automatically be set to 'Available' offers.

  1. Click on the greater than symbol to expand the offer details and read the terms and conditions
  2. Click on Register your Card to register for the offer
Amex Offers Online

If you have more than one American Express card connected to your account you can see which offers each card has by first clicking on the small box that shows your multiple cards in the upper right hand corner of the account screen:


Which will give you a listing of your cards that should look something like this and you can click on whichever card you want to view:

Additional cards


Now you go back to step one and scroll down to the Amex Offers section to see what offers you have available for the card.

That same Amex Offers section also allows you to see which offers you have registered for simply by clicking on the 'Registered to Card' tab and you can see which offers you have successfully completed by clicking on the 'Statement Credits' tab.


Amex Mobile App

Once you log in to your account on the Amex Canada mobile app - tap the card you want to see the offers for (if you have more than one card on your account). Then tap on 'Amex Offers' at the bottom of the screen and voila you are at the offers pages for that particular card. Click on the offer you are interested in and then you simply tap on 'Register to card to register for the offer. That's all it takes!

 Amex Offers Tips


If you carry more than one American Express card and receive an offer on multiple cards you can ask the retailer to split your payment if the purchase total is high enough. For example, we had a London Drugs purchase of just under $200 and we received the spend $75 and receive a $15 statement credit offer on two cards. I asked if they were fine splitting the payment and they were, so I paid one half with my American Express Gold Rewards Card and the other half with my wife's Marriott Bonvoy American Express card. This way we received $30 in statement credits in one shot.

Use your cards regularly to get offers sent to you. Cards that aren't being utilized, i.e. just sitting in a drawer won't have offers sent to them. Case in point, I carry two American Express Cobalt Cards in my wallet. One is mine and the other is a supplementary card for my wife's account. I have been using that supplementary card and planned on not pulling my own card out until we hit $30,000 in spending on my wife's account for the 5x multipliers. Well since my Cobalt Card was dormant it wasn't receiving any offers at all. I tested it out and put several purchases on my card and low and behold I received an Amex Offer on it.
