I’ve written in the past about Postmates, which is basically my favorite way to get food (at least in those instances where pushing the flight attendant call button isn’t an option). For those of you not familiar with Postmates, it’s an awesome food delivery service that lets you order food from just about any restaurant. Some restaurants are integrated into the app which makes ordering really easy, while others require you to manually enter your order.
I use Postmates all the time, as it’s a great alternative to getting room service at a hotel, since it gives you access to better food and is typically cheaper.
Well, at the moment there’s a targeted Amex Offer for Postmates, which is a great opportunity to save on your next Postmates order. Specifically, you can get a $10 statement credit by using your enrolled card to make a single Postmates purchase of $30 or more through January 9, 2017.
Like most Amex Offers, this one is targeted, though it seems to be very widely targeted. In my case, every single one of my Amex cards was eligible for this offer. To view Amex Offers, go to the bottom of the account summary page of any American Express card, where you’ll see all the offers you’re eligible for.
If you don’t yet have a Postmates account you can even receive a $10 discount on your first order by using promotion code PX6QX. Simply enter it after you download the app on your “Account” page, under the “Enter Promo Code” section.
Postmates charges a (typically small) delivery fee plus you can tip the driver through the app, though when you combine $10 off your first delivery fee through Postmates with $10 off through Amex Offers, you may just save money by ordering your next meal through Postmates rather than getting it yourself.
In my case I know I’ll be able to max out this offer. If you’ve used Postmates before, I’m sure you’ll see the value in this promotion. If you’ve never used Postmates before, this is a great reason to try it for the first time.
Lastly, keep in mind that unfortunately purchases made through Postmates don’t count as dining spend anymore, as I recently discovered.
Do you plan on using this great Postmates Amex Offer?
