Here's my story, I didn't have an Amex card at first. I signed up for one and got it days later, but I already started Halo 4 because I couldn't wait to play it before I synced the card to the Xbox.

Although, I knew about the Amex deals, such as beating the game and getting 25$ for doing so...I didn't know whether or not the credit would still be applied if I beat the game before syncing the card. But I took the risk anyways.

Here's what happened. After playing 2 or 3 levels, I realized if I had a chance to get 25$ for beating the game, I should NOT be connected to Xbox live. So I disconnected from LIVE when playing Halo 4 from that point forward and beat the game, WITHOUT having Amex card synced at this time. A day or two later I received my new card and I immediately synced it with my Xbox. I then DELETED my profile account from my Xbox, and RECOVERED my gamertag. Just to see if that would possibly make me more eligible for the offer or something.

I played Halo 4 some more after that, completing other offers such as playing Spartan Ops etc. in order to get the Best Buy offer. I already beat the game and got the "Wake Up John" achievement prior to syncing my card, so I didn't know whether or not I was going to get the 25$ credit. But, about a week later, I got an email for both the "Wake Up John" achievement AND the Best Buy offer saying congratulations on my completion and here are your offers.

So, it appears that I did get the offers EVEN though I beat the game without syncing first. The catch was being connected to live.

To re-iterate:
Played game disconnected from LIVE, and beat the game.
Got Amex card after I got the "Wake Up John" achievement.
Connected to live and sync'd Amex card to Xbox.
Deleted gamer profile off Xbox.
Recovered gamertag.
Played more Halo 4 and completed Best Buy offer etc.
Got confirmation emails for completing the achievements, from Amex.

Still haven't had the reward amounts posted to my account for the 10$ sync to Xbox, and 25$ achievement. I still need to spend 100$ at Best Buy to get the 50$ back, but I'll be doing that soon so I'm not worried about that one.


I hope everything makes sense. I am writing this in a tired state. Hope this helps anyone too...I'll try to respond to comments on my particular story. I'll let everyone know whether or not the money gets posted to my account in the next month or two as well.

Cheers.

So as some people may have seen, AMEX is now separately offering a $20 credit when you spend $200 at Best Buy.... Haven't used the $50 back promo yet... If I spend $200, am I going to get a $20, $50 or $70 credit?

They are separate promos so you should see separate credits.

Time to buy $200 worth of Kindle gift cards.

My fiancee and I each picked up $100 in Amazon GCs on Saturday, and the credit is posting to both of our accounts this morning. Pretty fast turnaround. Going back for thirds when the additional card I requested in her name gets here. :)

gah I still don't have my operation completed email. Is it possible to show someone your achievements via a web browser? I might have to screenshot it for CS.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Operation Completed stuff worked great for me, took about 4 days to get the 'you qualified' email. Then I made a $100 purchase at bby and within a minute I had an email from amex thanking me for my bby purchase and saying that if it qualified I would see the $50 statement credit. Swell deal.

For some reason, now my amex isn't synced to my xbox account even though I got the $10 already.

Damn. I ignored this thread because I didn't have an XBOX or Halo 4 - but i'm probably getting one for this week ($199 deal). I had been going back and forth between XBOX bundle or Vita bundle (since I already have ps3).

I wasn't going to get Halo 4, but this is a sick deal and means there is like no reason at all NOT to get it. What is the expiration date on all of these individual credits?

If I get a 360:

Sync 360 $10
Sync 360 $50 off $100 at Best Buy (when is this good until!!!??? any other catch for this one other than syncing the 360?)
Halo 4 "Wake Up John Achivemenet" Get $25.

The other deals are no use to me, but thats still $85 right there on a $199 console + $60 game (plus I'm sure I will pay much less for Halo 4). What's the deadline on these deals?

Thank you sir!!!

I was thinking about just buying the 360 today for $249, to get the sync out of the way if that was necessary. But it looks like I have plenty of time, even if I order from Newegg and wait for shipping. Man this will be unbelievable deal between the Holiday bundle and all these credits.

Thanks -- your link worked perfectly for my synced card. I tried going to the FB Amex offers page earlier and BB was not on the list of offers for my card. I did unsync my card from Twitter so not sure if that helped or if it was your direct link, but either way I'm good to go

On my 2nd Amex card I was able to get the offer directly from my online Amex account under the "My Offers SHOP DINE SAVE" section (this card is not synced to FB or Twitter)

Now to wait and see if people are able to stack both Halo & Amex sync promos on a single $200+ purchase

Did you re-sync or do anything different to register for the $20 offer? I've done the $50 halo offer already.

Well you have to register the card with facebook but I must have done that awhile ago when I did the twitter sync also. After it is registered, which I think is done by liking the AMEX page and using the app you can just sync offers by liking them. It was awhile ago so I am not sure exactly how I did it. All I had to do today was sign into my Facebook, go to the AMEX page and click on the BBY offer. It just added it to my already registered card.

Edit: Looking at my timeline it seems that I synced my card last March but this is the first offer I am using it on.

Side note: Man I do not use Facebook much but the layout now is such a piece of crap. Maybe it gets better the more you use it but it seem unnecessarily complicated now.

You can also use the "spend $200 at Best Buy and get $20 back" promo to first buy the Xbox 360 bundle. That will maximize your cash back.

As promised, I am returning with an update on my situation.

If people don't remember, or have not read it, this is a summary of my situation.

I did not have an Amex card till after I beat Halo 4. Although, I was not connected to LIVE when playing Halo 4. I got the card, and sycned it to my xbox, and wasn't sure If I would get the "Wake up John" achievement CREDIT or not since I already beat the game, without having the card synced in the first place PRIOR to beating the game.

Well, I synced the card, deleted my gamer profile, and then recovered my gamer profile to see if that would help my odds at all in getting the credit. Unknown if this is necessary but I still did it to make the odds on my side.

Just checked my credit card statement online and I have both the 10$ credit for syncing, and also the 25$ credit for beating Halo 4.

This confirms that you can complete an achievement prior to syncing, as long as you are not connected to live, and later deleted and recover your gamertag, and still get the reward of 25$!

Again, I confirm this myself! Luckily this was tested out on myself and not someone else haha. Lucky you who are reading and this pertains to.

So go ahead, if you haven't got an Amex card and you haven't played Halo connected to LIVE, you can still get the 25$ credit if you do as I said.

Just registered for the $20 back on $200 best Buy promo. If only I had done that yesterday before I spent $400 #-o. I don't see spending $200 more in one transaction the rest of the year. Maybe I'll get lucky and yesterday's transaction will count.

Is the deal dead? I went to register my card on the site in the OP and said it can't be validated at this time and the video had been removed by the user...hopefully it's still valid...

Edit: although I just read somewhere else that corporate cards aren't valid? maybe that's it...don't have a personal card.

It might be over for new sign ups. Like you said the youtube video is removed. I also checked the main sync site, https://sync.americanexpress.com/, xbox has been removed as a sync option.

Oh boy I hope this won't get messy. I now have 2 $10 credits and 1 $25 credit. For some reason the day I got $25 for completing the game it also gave me another $10 back. Should be interesting to see what happens when I get the $50 for spending $100.
