Hi friends, Was approached by Amex representatives in my company campus regarding getting an Amex CC. They told 1st year membership fee will be waived off and on spending 50k INR I will get 8k worth amazon gift card.

Fee waiving off seems normal, but 8k on 50k didn’t sound legit. Anyone familiar with this ?

TIA

You will get 8k Amazon gift on achieving 18k reward points. So 50k is not sufficient for getting 8k amazon voucher. Pm me if you want more details.

Yeah, 8K GV for 18k points is there. You will get it on 50k spends as well in a year and a bit more (1k bonus points on 4 swipes of 1k each month). This is better than the INR 7500 credit you get. Like the 11k travel voucher for 24k points vs 10k statement credit.

However what they neglected to tell you is that unless you achieve 1.5 lacs or more billing in a year, you will end up paying 4.5k+ as annual fees.

Sorry for the off topic question.Currently using my brothers sbi simplyclick card.Our main spends are on amazon,flipkart,other online wallets and paytm loads to pay shopkeepers.Yearly spends average close to 1-1.5 lakhs.Should i tell my bro to opt for amex? His main problem is with the yearly fees.

They specifically mentioned that no annual fee for first year and I can cancel before year 1 ends sad

Also even if I do these swipes , I’ll get 12k (each month) max in a year. Rest will have to get 6k points to attain min 18k. Will be tough for me not used to this heavy shopping.

Thanks for answering, they did not seems to mention that I’ll need 18k points.

Just spend 50k and get 8k inr amazon card.

They were actively pursuing me last month for month end sales target. Wasn’t able to decide so avoided sending documents.

Yearly 50K is correct..but it’s not 18 k and its 12K and you can redeem worth 5k voucher for 12k bonus points .. it’s like monthly 4k spends. 4 times min 1000 RS transaction in a month will add you 1000 bonus points. So 12 months 12k bonus points

With 50k spends 18k points is possible
For new card if you spend 5k in first 60 or 90 days you will get 5k points + spending 4k each month ferches you 12k points and for this spend of 50k you will get regular(2 points for 100) 1k points
So 5+12+1 its 18 😃

PM me to learn how to earn additional 6k points. To earn this 6k you no need to spend anything extra
