AMEX offers, not so great anymore?

When AMEX offers started there seemed to be quite a few useful ones that I added to my card. In the past 6 months I haven't gotten any that have appealed to me. Has anyone else noticed that the offers are not as great as they used to be? Or is it just my imagination?

Same here but it likely has something to do with usage - if you only use the card for those rewards, they may offer them less to you.

I guess it all depends on what offers you can use. I buy from Puritan Pride a lot so the $10/$30 offer is valuable to me since I can stack the discount codes they send me plus bonus from portal that I choose with the highest CB offer for PPride.

Another thing is there are times that offers don't seem appealing to me at first like the $25/$250 BBY offer since I don't shop there a lot and then I saw the VGCs sold and it was a huge moneymaker using several cards with that offer. From then on, I learned to save all offers that have great potentials of bringing in profits for me.

Things usually heat up around the holiday shopping season. I'd give it another month or so.

Also got a $20 off $100 at a restaurant in my city.

your amex card from USAA is a co-branded amex card, I'm not sure how this can be synced to amex offers. I have a VVBA amex CC and tried to link offers via facebook and I don't get offers on it. For all other amex cards I have, both personal and business, I get lots of offers on them on the primary cards and AUs as well.

you can use your USAA amex card on SBS offers though, you just have to link the card soon as the SBS offer goes live online.

I think you are on to something. I've used the really good gas, Sam's Club, Wal-mart deals before so now I only get random online store and local restaurant deals that I never use.
