American Express Offers $5 off a $5 iTunes/App Store Purchase

AMEXAmerican Express is offering a $5 statement credit to users who spend $5 on the iTunes and App Stores by April 30th. The rebate, part of AMEX's "Offers for You" promotion, requires that users opt-in to the offer on the American Express website, and then spend at least $5 on iTunes by the end of the month.

AMEX cardholders need to ensure that their card is set up as the default billing method within iTunes itself. Once a $5 purchase is made and charged to the American Express card, a $5 statement credit will appear on their account.
OFFER DETAILS

Spend a total of $5 or more on iTunes using your enrolled American Express Card by 4/30/14 and get a one-time $5 statement credit.
American Express runs a number of these promotions, though availability does vary based on previous card usage. Some users may not be able to see the iTunes promotion because of how they use their card, for example.

Super smart and strategic move from AMEX. They want your AMEX to be the primary card associated to your iTunes profile.

Will pay off. Well played ;)

Nice. I'd like to take advantage of this but too bad my account is always preloaded with gift card credit anyway. I'd have to spend it all first before I could actually charge my card.

I wish Apple offered alternative payment options in the store for this very reason.

Yes, I already signed up for this 2 days ago, Amex is the best :D

Spend $5 to get a $5 credit, that was easy (even though my AMEX is already my iTunes account default card)

Same issue I have but I believe if you buy a gift card on iTunes it uses your card and not your credit. Maybe buy a $5+ gift card and get the statement credit? I'll try that later once they confirm enrollment on my card first.

Yes it works if you buy iTunes content - I bought 3 episodes of How I Met Your Mother on my AppleTV and received a $5 credit on my Amex account a couple of days after iTunes billed my card
