How Does the American Express Rewards Multiplier Work?
Before you shop, you need to click through the link from the Reward Multiplier website, which takes you to a screen like this. Your cart should be empty on arriving on the destination website, and then you fill up your cart and order. Bonus points arrive within 150 days of the transaction completion, usually.
