American Express - $10 off a $50 Purchase of Grocery Stores in NY/NJ/CT

Select cardmembers have a offer for a $10 statement credit if you spend $50 or more at a grocery store in NY, NJ or CT.  You can find the offer in the "offers for you section" when you log in to AmericanExpress.com

If you have the offer and connect it to your card (unfortunately I don't have it), you can get up to 3 $10 credits when you spend $50 or more 3 times. 

If you have the offer on multiple cards, don't connect it to one of the cards right away.  Open up americanexpress.com in separate tabs and get the offer open on all of your cards, then click on the offer for all the cards.  If you don't do this, the offer will disappear from your other cards one you click on it once.

You can load up on gift cards (to the grocery store or elsewhere) in $50 increments to stock up on 20% off.
