Good evening everyone. A few weeks ago, a friend of mine told me about the MaxRewards app. The app has a ton of cool features, but the feature that was the most interesting to me was the ability to load the same AMEX Offer onto multiple AMEX credit and charge cards. Back in the day, you could open each AMEX card in its own tab, scroll down to the AMEX Offers section and add the same AMEX Offer to each and every AMEX card that had the offer. Unfortunately, AMEX killed that trick and now you can only load the AMEX Offer to 1 AMEX card, no matter how many AMEX cards you have that display the offer. Once the offer was loaded to the first card, it could not be loaded to any more cards.
This is where MaxRewards comes in. They have the magical ability to load the same AMEX Offer onto all of your AMEX cards that display the offer. For example, if you have 6 AMEX cards that all display the same Office Depot AMEX Offer, MaxRewards is able to add the offer to all 6 AMEX cards. Here is how it works.
As I mentioned, I have the same Office Depot AMEX Offer available on 6 AMEX cards.
I then went to the MaxRewards app and allowed the app to sync the latest AMEX Offers for me. Depending on the number of AMEX cards and the number of AMEX Offers per card, the process can take about a minute. After the sync was finished, I went to the Offers tab (bottom right corner) and then searched for Office Depot. I clicked on the offer and saw that MaxRewards was able to add the Office Depot AMEX Offer to 7 cards (1 card is Laura’s). It also does a great job displaying the start and end dates of the offer, a brief description of the offer, and which cards have the offer.
To double check, I signed back into my AMEX account and checked all 6 AMEX cards. The Office Depot AMEX Offer was successfully added to all 6 AMEX Cards.
I have played around with MaxRewards for a few weeks and am still learning new things about the app. As far as I can tell, MaxRewards can sync AMEX Offers, Chase Offers, Citi Merchant Offers, and BankAmeriDeals, among many other features like tracking spend toward a sign up bonus, telling you which credit card works best at each merchant, and reminding you to use your AMEX monthly credits. If you are interested in MaxRewards, here is my referral link or use code travelwithgrant when you sign up. With the referral link / code, you will get a credit for 1 month discount on their Gold Membership (paid service that unlocks all the benefits, but you can check it out free with their 7 day free trial). The link works best on your phone since MaxRewards is app-only.
