    Anyone like to guess how long to Maximum enrollment? - 118000 Cards (12000 less than last year) - if CF Frost enrolls we are in trouble

    •  

      Should last a while as it doesn't appear to be on all cards and there is no manual link.

  •  

    Hi, how do we enrol supplmentary card holders?

    •  

      does you supp have a seperate login?

      •  

        No, I don't think so

        • +2 votes

          login with your own account then click on the amex card picture on the top right - then click on view additional card members - then click on card members name then should take you to offers screen

            @DisabledUser171587: Clicking on the card members name does nothing for me.

            • +3 votes

              @rooon: Same here - I think you need to get the additional card member to setup his/her own account with Amex and then they can register (provided they get the offer)

              • +2 votes

                @bauser99: Or you just set it up now and control it. That is what I do. After all you are responsible for it as primary.

                •  

                  @Yola: How to set up the login for the additional member cards please?

                  •  

                    @noskich: The same way you set up your primary one …

                    • -4 votes

                      @kerfuffle: Looks like supplementary ones don't have the offer anyway. Should not bother setting them up…

                      •  

                        @noskich: My two supplementary ones did (DJs Amex and Velocity Escape)

                      •  

                        @noskich: I'm a supp cardholder and got the offer too

      •  

        Do offers generally apply to both main cards and supp cards or just this one ?

        •  

          Again it is completely random, one supplementary was not enrolled in the offer, the other was. Unfortunately have to register each one to check…

          •  

            @noskich: If both can enrol, does it mean I get 2 credits, one on each card in the final statement ?

            • +1 vote

              @H Le: Yes if you can enroll it, not all can enroll.

              •  

                @noskich: Thank you, I didn't know this !

      •  

        Supp cards should have a separate logon.

        I just activate it on my main a/c & supp one…

  •  

    Oh it won't let me login as the additional card member. =)

      keep trying as there is server lag, as a lot of people are trying to sign up at the same time

        This is why I love ozbargain. It might be 4am on a friday morning but we're all up trying to get a good deal. =)

    Shop Small, Maccas special deals, Xmas has come early!

    •  

      Pity they don’t all stack. I’ve been trying to live an OzBargain day where all my meals were free or substantially discounted (eg $1 Rashays) but couldn’t do it :(

      •  

        Entertainment book / Zomato :)

  •  

    Two quick things to check for. First the offers were not showing up on the mobile app but did on desktop. Second, if the offer is not visible for some cards I found it mid way down amongst the other offers so make sure you scroll through. Personally got it on the the Platinum Charge, Reserve and Edge.

    I’m sad cause had cancelled my Amex explorer march this year so serving the waiting period before signing up a next one. But enjoy guys!

      Self abstinence. Will enjoy on your behalf

    •  

      You cancelled it to get another one? 🤨

      •  

        100k points is worth at least $1000, are you making more than $1000 from shop small?

        •  

          So you saying he is churning?

      •  

        Well my spend amount doesn't quite justify paying the annual fee without bonus points, so decided to cancel and wait for the next offer.

        •  

          OK. Another card i take it, ie not an explorer one.

      Why not get DJ AMEX?

    •  

      They have 18 months waiting period

      •  

        Are you talking about the DJ Amex because it has a different T&C to the normal Amex.

        •  

          I'm in the same boat, but DJ Amex is barely worth the credit check.

          Actually, not barely. Not worth it.

    Not showing in Low Rate card and the supplementary cards

    Opened a chat with Amex customer service. Says "The registration for this offer would start from 1/11 5:00 PM AEST."

    •  

      I’m registered now

      •  

        yeah. i was able to save it on another card. said the same to him, and 5pm is the official registration start. i think they messed up and making this up.

    • +2 votes

      lol the registration limit would be reached at 5 pm AEST

    My local McDonald's and KFC is on the small shop. Nice

    • +1 vote

      KFC takes Amex now? Wouldn't accept it last time I went, I had to order through the app and use Paypal to be able to pay with Amex, lol.

      •  

        That is dedicated points chasing.

        •  

          Haha, could say that. If I decided last minute to go there I wouldn't worry but if we planned ahead I'd order through the app instead so I could use it. Was worth it at the time, back when 1 Amex point was still worth 1 Velocity point before they halved the value.

          • +3 votes

            @MitchyD1989: I do the same things. Especially paying bills through Post Billpay when Amex is not accepted. It all adds up.

            • +1 vote

              @Yola: Definitely, every bit counts. I've paid out of pocket for not even half the flights my partner and I have taken thanks to the Platinum Edge card. Points chasing is serious business lol.

    •  

      Did you tick the "Shop Small Map" option in the Filters->FEATURED section?

    •  

      They are certainly not small businesses to me. They certainly accept Amex but not necessarily are part of shop small. Make sure you double-check your filter selection.

  •  

    For my supplementary user I created a login for that card and was then able access the offers and add this offer as per the primary card.

  •  

    Cafe I go to regularly for work is included but they have an AMEX surcharge, surprised that isn't against the rules to be part of this programme.

    • +5 votes

      It is. Report them via live chat (after you've claimed a cashback there of course)

      •  

        Done and done!

    •  

      Don't most places have a Amex surcharge tho

      •  

        Not the ones I frequent. May depend on the area.

  •  

    Is there a manual registration? Didn't get on one of my cards…

  •  

    None of my supplementary cards have the offer :(

  •  

    2 primary cards got it (qantas discovery), one primary didn’t (essential).
    None of my 8 supps got it

  • +3 votes

    Now, wait for someone to export the shop list, as their map still bad

  •  

    My supps have their own login yet not targeted…oh well.

    •  

      same

      •  

        And that top right, click on the last 5 digits on cards -> view additional cardholders thingie don't work either.

    Thanks for the reminder

    2 primary and 2 supps got it, the other 5 supps didn’t 😥

    •  

      Bummer. I thought this one and Vogue were ones everybody got. Then I got no Vogue this year but at least some could go into the CBD and fix that, which I could not do, but not sure you can fix this one.

      Use offer multiple times.

    • +4 votes

      All offers are limited to a certain number per card. Supplementary cards do not cost anything but enable you to take maximum advantage of offers. I believe I save the cost of my card. Particularly Vogue night when you can purchase Coles Myer group cards for 40% off and purchase groceries and petrol. With my 10 cards I can get $500 worth and save $200. Then there is also David Jones etc.etc. Also with this Shop Small I will be able to spend $1000 and save $500, even on basics such as topping up MYKI and others use it for Opal.

    One Explorer got, another 2 suppl got, 1 suppl no. So I tried different devices, apps, finally got by using computer to refresh many times. So I guess Amex server now kind of congested.

    Good luck to all Ozbargainers!

    I understand, few card members are able to enroll early in shop small offer.
    Evanka at x:xx, Nov 1:
    The offer must show for them shortly as this a highly enrolled offer , it may take some time to show listed on the account.

    •  

      The offer start time is 5 P.M AEST. according to Evanka.

      •  

        Unnamed representative says the same still, even though I have received an email inviting me to enrol (and can't).
