Hello all,
I came across this Awesome Amex offer on my Amex Blue Cash and Amex HHonors cards just now...

I found it on only these 2 cards and not on others...so this is YMMV.
At this point in time, I don't know if there is a twitter handle for this. If someone can provide one - that'll be wonderful.

Good luck...details below

Get a one-time $10 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend $20 or more in a single in-store transaction using Samsung Pay on your Samsung mobile device by 8/4/2016.

Terms:
Enrollment limited. Offer valid only for a qualifying purchase made with Samsung Pay on your Samsung mobile device. Offer valid at in-store merchant locations that accept the American Express® Card in the fifty United States, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands with point-of-sale terminals that process Samsung Pay transactions. If you cannot use Samsung Pay for the purchase for any reason, your purchase will not qualify for the offer. Please visit http://www.samsung.com/us/support...amsung-pay to see information about Samsung Pay eligible devices. You must enroll in the offer by adding the offer to your American Express Card and then selecting that Card when you make a qualifying purchase with Samsung Pay. Only US-issued American Express Cards are eligible for this offer. Limit 1 statement credit per American Express online account. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 8/4/2016, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from merchant until all items from your qualifying purchase have been provided/shipped by merchant. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. POID: CAS2:0001

Isn't Amex Ashamed of itself. Dropping a major money maker like Costco and trying cheap sales tricks like this one. At least a good thing for Visa lovers like me that shop at Costco.

Amex is going downhill fast from here.

Everything else being equal, yes it's better to get a Samsung phone. The Samsung Pay is much more secure than paying by credit/debit card as the transaction code sent to the point of sale device is tokenization ( virtual number not the actual number on the card). Even if a hacker were to steal the virtual card number, it would be useless as it only applies to that transaction only. A new number is generated everytime you use it.

Apple Pay and Android Pay also has tokenization. But it only uses NFC technology which has very limited adoption by merchants. On the other hand, Samsung Pay ,not only has NFC like Apple and Android devices, but also a technology called MST which sends out magnetic secured signals to the "old" point of sale terminals using a coil system embedded in the phone itself. The POS thinks it's a card that was swiped and let's the transaction go through. It's the coolest thing to witness the first time you experience it. I've had cashiers give me the stink eye doubting it would work.

You can use it anywhere you can swipe or tap your card. That is basically 90% of terminals out in the world, meaning hundreds of millions of terminals vs 2.5 millions NFC enabled POS devices for Apple Pay and Android Pay.

According to Samsungs website, there has been already over $500 million dollars worth of transactions through Samsung Pay.

This is akin to a CC company saying: hey use our CC, it's only $700 bucks.
