I'm more surprised that you found a retailer that accepts American Express.


Any major company accepts Amex, its only small businesses and "cheap" places that dont. Amex gives the best cash back I feel for no anual fee cards and therefore sends that cost onto the retailer. So their fees are higher and a lot of merchants wont take it.

But if you are an adult CAG you need at least a Visa and Amex card that gives cash back or some form of rewards. Amex for all the time cash back (Most people have one from Costco) and then the Visa for the retailers than dont take Amex.

My Visa statement is about 10% of my Amex statement. Amex is accepted nearly everywhere now other than small businesses and everywhere online.

Almost everyone around here takes it. If they don't take it, I don't shop there. I have gotten a few a places to start taking it after speaking to the owner about it.

What it's 2012? Unless your some small mom and pop, Almost everybody accepts Amex. It's the best credit card company by far especially the customer service, extended warranties, and they accept refunds on items purchased with your card.

So I want to be sure I am reading it right but it seems like the BBY credit needs to wait for confirmation that you qualify and then you can spend the money. It might be the first thing I do then is to complete a Spartan Ops mission because I would buy FC3 and Hitman. It would be nice to get both for $35 + $20 RZ cert. ($10 +$25 + $50 credits).

Signed up my amex card and also my gf's on my second gamertag. Not sure why I have it, but its got 90 pts on it for some reason.

Now the question is if I want to play Halo 4 a second time and just blast through the story again to get $25.

If this promotion goes smoothly I might actually spend $100 at Bestbuy even though I have a ton of credit there. $50 off aint bad.

If I preorder 2 games and pay them off will they show on my CC statement as $120 and therefore get the $50 cash back? That plus the $20 gift card for GCU makes that a pretty good deal.

I'll have to tell my parents, maybe create them gamertags and then sign them up so they can get some $10 each free. I guess do a spartan op mission if they want the best buy cash back.


Someone answer this I'd like to know too

Man, wish Serve would work. Even though it's $85 free (my brother in law is likely to buy the game), it's not enough incentive to get an Amex card when I already have Chase Freedom... Doubt I would have the credit to get an Amex card that has similar or better rewards than the Freedom either.

So I didn't see this asked yet - it says qualifying card, is there a particular type of card you have to get? And more importantly, does Amex charge an annual fee? I'm honestly considering signing up for one just for this deal.

If you do it will disqualify you from the offer but yes it does allow you to unlink the card.

I agree, and I love Amex. But to that other person's comment, I completely understand why some people think Amex is not widely accepted. It totally depends on where they live, where they shop, how they pay, etc. I have friends who live closeby who are confused as well. They're just so used to Visa/MC.

So I didn't see this asked yet - it says qualifying card, is there a particular type of card you have to get? And more importantly, does Amex charge an annual fee? I'm honestly considering signing up for one just for this deal.


I know my Amex card doesn't charge an annual fee. It's a cash back one, too.



I'm curious how Amex knows we've unlocked that achievement. I have my privacy settings hiding my game history cuz I got tired of randoms looking at my achievements and accusing me of hacking. I suppose there might be some sort of equivalent to bungie.net that would show in-game achievements???

I love my AMEX card. I doubles as my Costco card, and gives 3% back on gas, 2% on restaurants and travel, and 1% on everything else.

I'm not entirely sure, but my guess is that by "syncing" the accounts - Microsoft can probably send the achievement information directly to American Express. Either that, or American Express has the right to query your achievements based on the linked account.

So I have had a Delta Sky Miles Card for 8 years. I have been paying a fee every year for that card (stupid) so I decided to call today to see if I can get it removed. The CS rep was awesome. She moved my account to a Blue Cash Everyday Card with no annual fee. It has 3% cash back at U.S. stand-alone supermarkets, 2% cash back on gasoline at U.S. stand-alone gas stations, 2% cash back at select major department stores; and 1% cash back on other purchases which is way better than the Delta card. I used to be able to put my rent on my AMEX so I had a ton of miles I used to travel to Hawaii and Alaska but I am not traveling much right now so this is way better. The best thing is my account # does not change so I can keep my synced card as is. Otherwise I was thinking of just cancelling the card since it would have cost me $95 just to get the $85 on this deal.

This might not be a question anyone can answer here but do purchases made on bestbuy.com qualify for the spend $100, get $50 promotion? There are a couple things I'd pick up if so.

Well AMEX did a Twitter sync deal with Best Buy in March for $10 credit with $10 purchase and it was for in store or online. Not sure if this deal has a stipulation or not. I ordered online with the twitter deal and it worked no problems. Once we can activate the deal hopefully it will tell us more.

I signed up with a gold account and silver. Its in the games section not the main dash.

Someone answer this I'd like to know too


Anyone find anything out regarding this. It was about if preordering two games and paying them off at time of purchase would count for the offer. The statement would say Bestbuy and $120 so I dont see why that wouldn't be a purchase. What about gift card? I honestly haven't looked at the terms though, might give them a look and see.

I had trouble finding it myself. here is the instructions from the email they send:

1. Go to the Games section of the Xbox 360 dashboard and click on the Browse Games tile
2. Click on the American Express digital experience tile
3. Allow Microsoft to share your Xbox LIVE Gamertag, if you haven't
already, and enter this Access Code. This Access Code will identify you
to Microsoft as an American Express Cardmember and may allow Microsoft
to know which offers you add to your Card

Do you guys think it would be too late to sign up for an AMEX card and get in on this deal? Assuming I have good enough credit that is. If not what is the best or fastest way to sign up?

Never played a Halo game save for a few minutes of Reach. Considering what a rockin deal this is with a bby preorder and the motivation to finish the game, would Halo 4 be a good place to start or is my inner deal monster just trying to get the better of me?

I love how all the young gamers on gamefaqs are complaining about this promotion since they can't get AMEX cards :D

AMEX is miles ahead of the competition when it comes to social media promotions. I love the twitter cash back deals.
