Same here. We don't have to do anything additional to "claim" this reward do we? Like for the $10 credit you had to click on something on the 360. Are we good to go once we get the email? It is not entirely clear to me.

If so, I'm all set to pick up an iPad Mini for my son's birthday present. I have about $70 in RZ certs to make it $260, a 3x points RZ coupon to use (thus essentially getting back $15), and then the AMEX purchase to get back $50. Not too shabby... Plus I'm really close to qualifying for Silver RZ for next year. This and a few Black Friday game purchases should put me over.


Just says wait for the email and you should be all set. Just got mine. Got achievement Saturday.

Normally I'd agree with you, however this line in their terms and conditions has me thinking otherwise: "Spending that occurs before you receive a confirmation email will not count towards the $100 spend amount."

I got my confirmation email tonight regarding this achievement

I never said spend $100 right now -- the person I was responding to asked if it had to be a single purchase or if multiple purchases were ok

You need to wait for the confirmation email saying that the offer is activated and after that you need to have a single $100.00+ charge on the card to get the $50 credit (you can't make multiple purchases that add up to $100)

If you dont have anything to buy for $100+ then just grab a $100 gift card and use it whenever you like

BTW anyone living here in the northeast who has frequented Mohegan Sun casino, they are giving away $100 Best Buy gift cards this Friday night to select invitees. I have not been in a awhile but I also got a free room and free $75 dollar bet so I will be partaking. The entertainment is not too shabby and "scenery" tends to be top notch as well.

Highly YMMV, but if any one person sees this and may have the same offer it could be worthwhile depending on your location.

Yep your good to go after you receive your email for the spend $100 get $50 credit promo. Just make sure you spend $100 or more in one transaction which an iPad Mini will definitely do.

damn, really? maybe that's why I don't see a $10 credit when I my amex account online. does anyone know how/where to get the offer on the console to appear? I've already received an email confirming the 360 and card synced.

Email says:
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

Theres probably a $10 offer tile somewhere on the Amex App that you click on to activate the $10 credit

How long does it take after loading your $10 credit offer to your card for the credit to show up on your online account? I loaded a few days ago and still nothing in the credit section of my pending charges.

FYI, for those attempting to rent this game from Redbox to get the Operation Completion achievement for the Best Buy offer.. You need the second disc to install the Multiplayer content, so you cannot play Spartan Ops mode while renting from redbox because you only get disc one.

When you select Multiplayer at the main menu for the first time, you're given the choice of installing it from disc or from a download. It should work without disc 2.

I got you, it was my you were responding to. It was this part of the terms "will not count towards the $100 spend amount", that makes me think it could be a few purchases added together (hence the "towards" part). But I will be grabbing a $100 amazon gift card either way.

Change is fucking good - but folding money is better.

If they dont have Amazon GCs then look for "Amazon Kindle" GCs which are the same as regular GCs

Can I do things out for order? For example, can I buy $100 worth of stuff at Best Buy, then get finish a Spartan Ops mission, and still get credit? I haven't beaten the campaign yet and I don't want to play Spartan Ops until that's done, but I do need to pick up my BLOPS 2 pre-order. I might as well throw in another game for essentially free.

No. You need to finish a mission, then get the email. If you do it beforehand it will not count. The email can take a few days.

If it's plot spoilers you're worried about, the first mission contains nothing of the sort.

Gah, the wait for this dang email is tense! Got the achievement yesterday and I'm hoping to get the Best Buy coupon confirmation in time to use it on the 3DS XL sale they have going on this week.

Egift cards work, but I'd rather hedge my bets and have a physical card sent, so I bought one. That shows as coming from bestbuy.com only, so there's no way this screws it up. Now to find what I want...

Still no email from Amex for the Spartan Ops achievement...

Question (not sure if anyone will know) It is a $50 credit when you spend $100 at Best Buy. It does not state that it has to be in one purchase. Can this $100 be broken up into multiple purchases to get the $50 credit?


I got the achievement but no confirmation via email. Kind of disappointing but I have faith in AMEX. This is about my sixth amex sync deal (used them on twitter/FB) and it'll be handled properly.

Wrong!

You can install disc two via online download. I rented from Redbox last night and downloaded disc 2 after the install.
