I've been getting AMEX mail offers every month for a while and finally applied since there was a nice cashback offer of $250 back after $1000 spent in first 3 months.

does anyone know if that offer will still apply to my account if I do the xbox sync etc? I'll sync this weekend.

You'll be fine -- your signup bonus offer does not interfere with Amex Sync offers

Just to be safe make sure you spend $1000+ after counting your Sync bonuses since they post it as a credit to your account. If you charge a $1000 and had $50 in Sync promo credit then the system may think you only spent $950 so its safer to charge $1000 + whatever Sync credits you're getting ($1000 + $50 Sync = $1050 so in this example charge $1050+ just to be safe)

10 minutes, but it could take 7 days to be "credited" for it

I'll likely spend over $1000 anyway.


I entered the access code on xbl and synced my card. Is the $10 credit for syncing automatically "completed" once I've synced? I see the offer ad but it doesn't have a check mark like the Halo 4 offer ad (which I haven't done but have registered for the offer).

You have to then go back to the 360 "app" (click on the offer) and activate/load it to your card

So I got my Bluebird card today and it synced fine with my xbox, but if I try to use it with facebook, twitter, or foursquare it says that prepaid cards dont work with it. How odd.

A question about the $50 back from Best Buy. Can I buy something with store credit and then put $100 of the purchase on my Amex card? Seems like that would be fine.

I want the $50 off $100 bby thing. How much would of the game would I have to play to get to the spartan ops mission? How long is the mission? Can I do it on single player or do I need to do it on co-op/multiplayer? (I may borrow the game from someone for few hrs just for this mission)

It takes about 10 minutes to complete the first mission and you can do it by yourself.

Doesnt matter as long as a $100.00+ charge is posted to your card

If you have doubts or if you dont have $100+ to spend after your store credit then just buy a $100 BB gift card first and use whatever amount of that GC on your purchase

Honestly the easiest way to do it is to hop into a random game. I suck at halo. Had 6 deaths and 5 kills.

If you do solo on Spartan Ops you can do it on easy. I am not the best at Halo and did the first Mission on easy in about 12 min. Hop on a Gauss gun warthog and blast away while your AI drives around randomly. :)

It takes literally like 10-15 minutes max to get that achivement. Very easy.

The campaign took me about 7 hours on normal. People who are actually good at shooters could blaze through in 6 i'm sure.

Is the offer still appearing on the dashboard? I haven't seen it and my card hasn't arrived yet - I'm afraid the offer is going to end before it gets here (hopefully next week).

It was there on mine last night. Not sure though if it stays if you claim it though. I see no reason why not since it is good till 12/31.

I saved in the middle of chapter 6 because it was late and continued the next day, and the Achievement never registered. I guess I have to go back and play the whole chapter again.

I would agree with this. While i did it on my own originally I played through all the Spartan Ops mission later online and some of those chapters we were finishing in like 7 minutes. A few teammates who are highly ranked will just make it a cakewalk for you.

You can even borrow the game and beat it and it will still count. I just synced my card 5 minutes ago, unlocked the $10 sync offer, and already got an email stating I will get the $10 credit.


Has the $10 been posted to your credit card statement or just showed up in your email? Thanks.

Sorry for my ignorance, why is everyone mentioning Spartan Ops? Are the requirements for 25$ and $50 to finish "Operation Completion" and "wake up John" achievements?
