Get $10 credit if you use Android Pay with AMEX

Sally McMullen 22 September 2016 NEWS

Use Android Pay to spend $20 on your American Express and get half of it back in cashback.

Following previous cashback promotions with Samsung Pay and Apple Pay, American Express is now offering Android Pay users the opportunity to get something back for using their Android device to make contactless payments. When you tap and pay with Android Pay to spend $20 or more on your American Express card in-store, you can receive a $10 cashback credit on your account.

Available until 20 October 2016, the offer is only open to the first 10,000 American Express-issued credit cards to take advantage of the offer. If you want to receive your $10 cashback before the offer ends, make sure to enrol in the offer online or via the AMEX Mobile App. Like a usual contactless payment purchase, all you need to do is hold your Android device within 4cm of a contactless payment terminal displaying the Android Pay symbol and you can process your eligible purchase of up to $100 without using your card.

If you have an overseas trip or online shopping spree planned, this offer is unfortunately only eligible for in-store purchases made in Australia. As mentioned, the offer is also only eligible with American Express-issued credit cards. So if you have a bank-issued American Express card, such as the ANZ Rewards Platinum credit card, you won't receive cashback on your Android Pay purchases.

While the $10 cashback may seem like a small reward, if you already take advantage of the Android Pay capability of your American Express, you may as well get a little something back on your next purchase.
