DETAILS
Get $10 back as a one-time monthly statement credit, for up to 3 months, by using your enrolled Card to spend $200 in one or more eligible US transactions in any 1 month during the offer period. Valid in-store or online at a US-based Supermarket. Your ability to redeem will reset on a monthly basis

Quote :
OFFER TERMS
Enrollment limited. Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Offer valid for in-store and online eligible purchases at U.S. Supermarkets. An "eligible purchase" means a purchase made with your enrolled Card at a U.S. supermarket location by 12/31/2021. "Supermarket" means a standalone merchant in the U.S. primarily selling supermarket products. Excludes gasoline purchases and gift card purchases. Specialty Food Stores, Superstores, and Warehouse Clubs are not considered Supermarket stores. Offer is non-transferable. Once you add the offer to your eligible Card, you must spend a minimum of $200 in one or more eligible US transactions by the last day of each calendar month to be considered eligible for a one-time statement credit. You may receive the one-time statement credit, up to 3 times (for up to 3 months of monthly minimum spend) during the offer period. Your ability to redeem will reset on the first day of each calendar month and end on the last day of the same calendar month until 12/31/2021. Limit of 1 statement credit per Card Member per monthly spend and 3 statement credits per Card Member per offer period (total of $30). An "eligible transaction" means one or more US purchases made in a calendar month with your enrolled Card on or before 12/31/2021 totaling at least $200. You may not receive the statement credit if we receive inaccurate information or are otherwise unable to identify your purchase as eligible for the offer. For example, you may not receive the statement credit if (a) the Merchant uses a third-party to sell their products or services; or (b) the Merchant uses a third-party to process or submit your transaction to us (e.g., using mobile or wireless card readers); or (c) you choose to make a purchase using a third-party payment account or make a purchase using a mobile or digital wallet. Merchants are assigned codes based on what they primarily sell. Your transaction will not qualify if the merchant's code is not eligible. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). 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 will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 12/31/2021, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. 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. Limit 1 enrolled Card per American Express Card online account. The enrolled Card account must be active, not past due, canceled, or have a returned payment outstanding to receive statement credit. Any benefit earned from this offer is in addition to the rewards (i.e. Membership Rewards or cash back) earned as part of your existing Card benefits, but your ability to earn spend-based rewards for the purchase will be based on the amount after any statement credit or other discount is applied. Amex Offers are dynamic and personalized, so the offers you see may change. For questions regarding your Card Account, please call the number on the back of your Card. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer.

Walmart is nearly always excluded from these deals.

Thanks for the HU. I had it on my BCE. Essentially, 5% back on a minimum spend of $200/month. Not suppa crazy good, but decent if you've going to use the card at the grocery anyway.

There is also another offer for $5 when spending $100 on supermarket purchases (added up) within any month. So, you will get $15 if fulfilling the $200 spending mark.

I don't think they do for grocery stores, but remember when they had similar language for the deal you had posted? So that makes it the second time I'm seeing this language for this specific type of an offer.

BCE is giving you 3% on groceries and this stacks -- so 8% on $200 spend for you. Somewhat hotter...

There are various levels of data that processors (MC/VS/AE/DC) can pull from transactions - not just the charge amount but even down to the level of what you bought.

Level II and Level III Processing [cybersource.com]

Level 1 is basically just the whole amount
Level 2 includes above plus tax information (probably important for corp purchases)
Level 3 includes above plus details about the actual purchase, like quantities, SKU, descriptions, etc. AE doesn't have L3 per se but something equivalent (EDC)


But the bottom line is, I've used AE offers on several different cards to buy GC's (3rd party usually) and never had an issue getting an offer.
