New Amex Offer for lululemon

In addition to the new Amex Offers credit for Hyatt stays we posted about earlier today there is also a new lululemon offer:

Spend at least $100 in qualifying purchases using your registered Card at by 15/05/2023 and earn a one-time $20 statement credit. Registration cap applies. Terms apply.

I actually received this one on my Cobalt Card instead of my usual Platinum Card. This offer is not available to Scotia Amex cardholders.

Simply log in to your Amex account or go onto the Amex app to see if these offers have been sent to you and to register for them.  You can find this and many more offers in our Guide to American Express Canada ‘Amex Offers’

The Cobalt Multiplier Challenge

Wow! We had an amazing close out to our Cobalt Multiplier Challenge yesterday. Thanks to Andre and Mike we added 68 new locations! 48 of those were added to the Rest Of World list which helped us exceed our goal of 250 locations! They helped with locations in the UK, France, Netherlands, Germany, Singapore and more. On top of this there were a few more additions to the Canadian and U.S. listings. And while we didn’t hit the goals we had set out for Canada and the U.S. the additions you all did really help grow those lists!

When the challenge started we were at 1,164 total entries and that has now jumped to 1,328 so we want to thank all of you who contributed! I know we’ll reach the goal of 1,000 Canadian and 250 U.S. entries during this course of this year so do please continue submitting your confirmed locations!

Check out the Cobalt Confirmed Multipliers list here.
