Offer cannot be retroactively applied to previously closed loans. This offer is not available to: Additional Card Members or holders of American Express Corporate Cards, Small Business Cards, Prepaid Cards and products, and American Express-branded cards or account numbers issued by other financial institutions.
3. Statement Credit
To receive the statement credit, the eligible Card Member must be a borrower or co-borrower(s) on the loan application and enter their own 15-digit card number when prompted by Better Mortgage. The card account must not be in a cancelled status at the time the statement credit is applied.
Card Members will not receive a statement credit if their mortgage: (1) closes after 7/8/24 “Close-by-Date” for any reason, including delays caused by events out of their control; (2) is not successfully funded; (3) is for a property in a non-qualifying state;
Better Mortgage, in its sole discretion, will determine the statement credit amount ($2,000 for a conforming loan OR $6,000 for a jumbo loan) at loan closing. American Express will post the statement credit based on the data it receives from Better Mortgage. These statement credits are limited to one per mortgage loan and cannot be combined with any other promotions, discounts or offers. Only one statement credit per property within a six-month period.
Not all loans will qualify. To learn more about conforming and jumbo home loans, call Better Mortgage at 877-688-3252 or visit Better.com.
The statement credit will be applied to an eligible Card Member’s account 8-12 weeks after their mortgage loan is funded. There may be situations where Better Mortgage needs to contact the Card Member to confirm details related to statement credit fulfillment. In these cases, there may be a delay in applying the statement credit to the account if Better Mortgage is unable to reach the Card Member in a timely manner. The value of the statement credit may be taxable income for Card Members, and they are responsible for any federal, state or other taxes resulting from this offer. Card Members should consult a tax advisor with any questions about the tax treatment of statement credits.
The statement credit will not count as a payment towards your Minimum Payment Due, and you must pay your Minimum Payment Due in full by your due date.
4. Dedicated Concierge
Eligible Card Members will be able to supplement their online, digital loan application and closing process, available through Better Mortgage’s website, with a dedicated concierge, assigned following pre-approval (or at the time the Card Member calls 877-688-3252 to request it), who will be their primary point of contact and provide assistance throughout the loan application process. Other Better Mortgage team members may contact the Card Member on an as-needed basis.
