Does Apple online store count as an office store? I got an iPad earlier this year directly from Apple and it qualified at x3MR. This way I can treat myself to another iPad, give the existing one to my little one since she's doing more school work on it, and get $20 back plus 3x MR. Total savings could amount to cashback equivalent of like $50 or about 8%.

I purchased Staples gc (stupidly) at Staples on Friday, and received the credits on Sunday.

I purchased a total of $450 in gift card, and paid 6 separate $75 transactions (we have 2 bus plat in the household).

Good luck Friends.

Anyone have DP on whether buying gift cards at Staples cause a AMEX shutdown?

Yes that should work. But if in doubt, buy a $25 gc and see if you get the extra $20 credit, then you can buy the final $50 later for your 3rd $20 credit.

Another DP: Bought $150 worth of ESSO giftcards in a single transction, on Saturday (7th) in store, received $60 credit Wednesday (11th).

However, the Offer disappeared from the "registered to your card" section of the Amex webpage and Amex app. Guess it still went through anyways. Never seen an offer disappear, even after requirements were fulfilled and statement credit was received.

I thought that always happened. They've disappeared every time I've used a credit (if I've used it the maximum amount of times). If I've only used 1 of 3, it still shows up until I use the other 2.

I thought I read it above but can you just purchase in one bullet $225 and get the $90.00 credit or it’s a three bullet situation.

so its indeed cumulative purchases, doesnt' really matter what the amounts are as long as its over the total amount...i did three transactions in this order , my offer was buy 50$ get 20$ back x 3

75$ gc > got 20$ credit , 2 days later
then couple days later bought a 25$gc, then another 50$gc > got 20$ credits TWICE , couple days later

so 150$ in gcs bought and got back 60$ credits!

i bought all 3 gcs at a local staples store NOT online
did u guys get the credits for the online GCs at staples?

Gotta love Amex!

I bought the AirPods Pro from staples for $243.99+tax and got a $90 credit on the business platinum. Also, $6 through rakuten.

Great deal for $180 all in for something originally priced at $370

Would there be any reason to expect better than the current 2% back from Rakuten at Staples? I assume not
