If you’ve got the American Express and Costco TrueEarnings credit card, you’ll be happy to hear that your annual reward coupon will be arriving soon. The rewards coupon accounts for the rewards that you earn by using your American Express card over the last year. The American Express reward coupon will be on the last page of your February statement and must be used by the end of August. So, be on the look out and don’t accidentally throw it away or overlook it or you’ll miss out on your reward. Here’s more information from American Express that I received in an email:
Your annual reward coupon for your TrueEarnings® Card from Costco and American Express is coming soon. Look for it on the last page of your February billing statement.You can redeem your reward coupon for merchandise or cash at any U.S. Costco warehouse. Use it to save on everyday items like groceries, or a special purchase for your home and family. You must redeem your reward coupon before it expires on August 31, 2014.Learn more about your TrueEarnings Card and annual reward coupon at mytrueearnings.com/answers/
Oh yes, and if you are like us and receive your statements from American Express online, you might be curious about how your reward coupon will show up. And here’s that answer:
If you receive your billing statements online, we will send you a paper billing statement for February with your reward coupon attached to the last page. To redeem your reward you must present the coupon from the last page of your paper billing statement in person at a U.S. Costco Warehouse, including Puerto Rico, prior to its expiration date of August 31st in the year in which it is issued. You or an Additional Card Member can redeem your coupon. You may not transfer it to anyone else. Please do not print out the coupon from your online statement, because the coupon from your online statement has the word “VOID” printed across the coupon and is not valid for redemption.
If you don’t have a TrueEarnings card, but would like more information about it, you can find all of that on the American Express TrueEarnings website. It’s got a clear breakdown of the rewards you can earn for your everyday shopping, as well as your Costco purchases.
Please note, this is NOT the same as the 2% reward for Costco Executive members, that comes from Costco directly, not American Express, and is sent out with your Costco membership renewal reminder which comes about a month or so before your membership will expire.
This information is for the American Express and Costco US TrueEarnings card; I’m unsure of when the reward coupons for other countries would be mailed out.
