American Express Cardholders Can Save Big Money During Member Week Promotion

Written by |

If you have an American Express credit card in your wallet, you may have some savings to claim this week.

During its annual Member Week promotion, Amex is offering select cardholders the chance to save a decent amount of money on purchases with popular brands such as HBO and Under Armour.

These offers, which generally result in statement credits if claimed and used properly, could be worth hundreds of dollars in savings.

But you’ll need to act quickly, as the Member Week runs from October 10 to October 14. And many of the offers must be redeemed in short order to qualify for the credits.

As you’re gearing up for Member Week, let’s walk through some of the deals we’ve already identified as well as what you can expect when claiming them.

4 American Express Member Week Deals Worth Claiming

Keep an eye on your American Express account throughout Member Week to see what type of deals or offers you may be eligible for as a cardholder.

Amex already has published some of its big deals, so you can start saving now. Let’s look at a few that I believe are worth adding to your card for easy savings.


Member Week Deal:Earn a $50 statement credit after using your eligible Card to make a single annual US subscription purchase of $99+ at by 10/20/22.

In addition to credit card content, I cover streaming TV for Team Clark. So believe me when I say that this HBO Max Member Week opportunity may be your best chance to get the popular video streaming service on the cheap.

And here’s why: You can double dip on promotions with this deal.


The only requirement to get the $50 statement credit is that you spend $99 or more with your American Express card directly with HBO Max for an annual subscription.

HBO Max happens to also be running a promotion this month that offers new subscribers the chance to save more than 40% off regular pricing by prepaying for a full year of service. So if you don’t already subscribe to HBO Max, you’re eligible to enjoy these savings in addition to the statement credit.

This means you could opt into paying $105 for one year of ad-free HBO Max to clear the $99 spending requirement for this deal.

In doing so, you would effectively pay $55 for the year if you use your AmEx card to claim the $50 statement credit. That works out to $4.59 per month for a service that is normally $14.99 per month!

Under Armour

Member Week Deal: “Earn a $25 statement credit after using your eligible Card to spend $75 or more in US purchases in-store or online with Under Armour by 10/20/22.”

You don’t have to be an athlete to get some good value out of this offer.

Like the HBO Max offer above, this deal simply requires a minimum spend with Under Armour (online or in-store) to get a statement credit. That means you can stack offers from Under Armour to save even more money on apparel or shoes.

If you’re buying online, Under Armour offers free shipping opportunities and discount codes to save beyond this statement credit.

For example, Under Armour’s outlet portion of the website was offering a 30% off discount code and free shipping on purchases of $99 or more as of October 10, 2022.

The Container Store

Member Week Deal: “Earn a $25 statement credit after using your eligible Card to spend $75+ in US purchases in-store or online with The Container Store by 10/20/22.”


Similar to the Under Armour deal listed above, you can get a third of your money back on a $75 purchase with The Container Store. This one is also available online or in-store.

If you have some organizing to do around the house, pairing this credit with an existing deal at The Container Store could be a great start.


Member Week Deal: “Earn a $50 statement credit after using your eligible Card to spend $100+ in US purchases online at by 10/20/22.”

If you have an upcoming technology purchase, you may want to check out Dell’s website to see if you can leverage this offer for a good deal.

Dell sells various levels of personal or business computer products that are priced well in excess of the $100 spend minimum for this deal, but it also has accessories and software options that are closer to the $100 minimum. For the right consumer, this could provide you with as much as half off of one of those items.

Who Is Eligible for Member Week Offers?

According to Amex, “Member Week offers are available to U.S. American Express Consumer and Small Business Card Members.”

You must opt in to an offer to claim it before spending. To see which offers are available for your card, log in to your Amex account via the website or app and visit the “Amex Offers & Benefits” tab.

How To Claim The Member Week Offers

If you’re familiar with the normal process for claiming an Amex Offer, you should be well prepared for claiming these special Member Week deals.

But let’s walk through it for those of you who are unsure.

  • You must log in to your Amex account online or on the app to opt in to the promotion.
  • Once logged in, you can find the available Member Week deals via the “Amex Offers & Benefits” tab.
  • When you identify a Member Week deal you like, you can claim it by clicking “Add to Card” on the offer. This will enroll you for the offer on that specific credit card.
  • You must make your qualifying purchase(s) with the credit card on which you’ve added this offer within the predetermined timeframe.
  • You’ll have to pay the full amount at the register or during online checkout, but you’ll get a credit as described in your offer on a future billing statement.
