American Express has just launched an offer on its credit cards, providing exclusive cashback on Paytm wallet top-ups. In this festive season when other card issuers are coming up with offers on shopping, AmEx has come up with something very different from them, which can benefit many of its customers who use Paytm. The offer has started today, i.e, on November 2, 2021, and will be valid for one week. However, there are some minimum top-up requirements and other terms & conditions that need to be fulfilled in order to avail of the offer. To get detailed information about it, keep reading:
The American Express credit card holders can earn a 3% cashback on reloading their Paytm wallet using their AmEx card. The maximum cashback that can be availed under this offer is capped at Rs. 300 per user and the offer will only be applicable on Paytm wallet reloadings worth Rs. 5,000 and more. All the eligible AmEx cardholders shall receive communication directly from the card issuer regarding this offer.

This cashback offer launched by American Express can be really beneficial for Paytm users who need to reload their Paytm wallet due to any reason. But before reloading your Paytm wallet just to earn cashback, you should keep in mind that making a higher transaction will only be a loss as the convenience fee will be higher than the cash back you earn. For example, if you reload your wallet with Rs. 15,000, then the convenience fee will be Rs. 397. 5 and the cashback will be Rs. 300 only, you lose Rs. 97 and don’t earn anything. But, if you are getting any profit, you should just go for it.

In terms and conditions of the offer, it is said that the offer is open to all Amex cards. When I spoke with Amex CC, they have confirmed that the offer is targeted one. Only those who received the communication would be eligible for this offer.
Strange, yes the terms & conditions here- https://www.americanexpress.com/content/dam/amex/in/services/Paytm-Oct.pdf clearly mentions that it’s open to all Amex Card holders. I would check again with the support.
Checked again with them today.. They apologized for wrong information and confirmed that the offer is open to all Amex cards…
I never thought that credibility of Amex CC would go this low
