Using American Express Card for Bonus at Boxed.com
Boxed.com has partnered with American Express to offer cardholders big rewards for targeted shopping. The deals change periodically, but one offer gives shoppers the chance to earn 4 or 9 additional points per dollar for buying specific products.
U.S. shoppers love warehouse clubs, but the costs associated with membership keep a lot of people from joining. Boxed.com caters to people who prefer online ordering and don’t want to pay warehouse club membership fees. At Boxed.com, shoppers get the benefits of bulk warehouse shopping from home without a membership fee.
Furthermore, Boxed.com has partnered with American Express to provide targeted rewards to American Express cardholders currently enrolled in the Membership Rewards program and has been offering various rewards deals throughout the year.
The offers do expire, so it’s a good idea to check for the latest details before you shop. In any case, if you haven’t tried Boxed, this could be a good way stock up on home supplies and boost your Amex rewards at the same time.
Details of the Amex Boxed Offer
Boxed sells food and other grocery items such as beverages, health products and supplements, bath and body products, cleaning supplies, and baby food and supplies. It also sells pet food and supplies, office and school supplies, kitchen and bathroom appliances, tableware, toys, sporting goods, and even flowers. But in order to earn your rewards, you do need to buy certain items.
A recent rewards promotion, through Nov. 5, 2018, offers cardmembers nine additional points per dollar spent on specific Kraft Heinz, General Mills, Unilever, and Pepsi products. Cardholders can earn four additional points per dollar spent on certain other products by General Mills, Seventh Generation, Reynolds, and Unilever products. To see which products qualify, you can visit the “Shop as You Earn” pages on Boxed.com.
This offer applies on top of the points you would already receive by using your American Express card for the purchase.
To redeem the offer, you need to log in to your Membership Rewards account and add the offer to your card. Once the offer is active, you simply place your order online at Boxed.com or through the Boxed app and use your eligible American Express card to pay for the purchase.
In order to qualify for the Amex offer with Boxed, you need to have an American Express credit card that is eligible for Membership Rewards. Prepaid cards, corporate American Express cards, and other travel-branded (Delta, Hilton Honors, and Starwood Preferred) American Express cards are exempt from this offer. In addition, only U.S. cardholders can redeem this offer.
There is no minimum purchase requirement for this offer, but you should be aware that you only get free shipping at Boxed if you are placing your first order over $19.98 or subsequent orders greater than $49. The offer only applies to orders from Boxed.com and the Boxed app, and Boxed Hotels purchases are not included in the offer.
In addition, Boxed might not ship to all areas. So purchases have to be delivered to an area that is serviced by Boxed in order to be eligible for the offer.
