Amex Monthly Blockbuster Bookmyshow Offer is Back but not Attractive

By | June 9, 2017

One of the popular promo from Amex in partnership with Bookmyshow – Monthly blockbuster movie offer now is back in action. They’ve modified the terms and conditions this time and the primary objective for Amex is now to push usage on their supplementary cards.

Amex Monthly Blockbuster Bookmyshow Offer

American Express Bookmyshow Offer (New):

  • The Offer: Rs.1000 /Rs.2000 worth Bookmyshow voucher
  • Valid: from 1st June, 2017 to 30th September, 2017.
  • Minimum value of Rs.2,500 per transaction
  • The Catch: Usage is now mandatory on  Supplementary Card
  • Reward Rate: 10% on spend
  • Enroll Now

Here are the steps to avail the offer:

As you can see, unlike before, usage on supplementary card is now mandatory to avail the bookmyshow voucher. This means, not only you, your family member should also be using the card to avail the benefit if done organically. Else, yes you may fill your wallets but 10k is quite high for that unless you are already a movie freak.

While this may be very useful for families those who really use Amex cards for day today shopping, it doesn’t seem to be attractive to me. I’ve been availing the vouchers from the previous offer but this time I’m gonna ignore it mainly for 2 reasons

  • Supplementary card usage is a pain
  • Rs.1000 vouchers are useful only in Metros and not in states like TN where the max cap is like Rs.120 per ticket.

    Is this only for transactions in POS or online transaction also considered ?

    I am also from TN & have written several mails to AMEX for last 6 months regarding the 120 rs cap in Chennai and requested them to relax the condition that only two tickets can be booked using 1000 rs voucher but still no action.

    Probably you and others from non-Metros also should write this to AMEX so that they will consider this seriously

      All txn’s are considered.

      I’ll certainly do it. Atleast they would consider it for next promo.

    It may work out for me. My monthly bijlee bill during summer months (May- Aug) is more than 10K and I pay that using Paytm/freecharge. Plus there are gas pipeline bills, telephone bill etc. I could load these wallets in steps of 2*2*2500 ( 2 loads from mine and 2 from addons). So without incurring unnecessary expenditure I cud earn INR 1000.

    Dear Siddharth,
    Thanks for the headsup- even i received the promo email after applying for a sup. card . So what is this amount cap about movies you are discussing? I had also received book my show ticket but validity was a month only which i could not use.

    1. Siddharth Post author

      I mean, in most parts of the country, except metro cities, the ticket value is around Rs.100,
      so if the booking is for two people, then Rs.200 is used and rest is waste.

    Would people buy the vouchers If I try to sell?

    1. Siddharth Post author

      Depends on what % discount you wish to offer 😉

  5. Manu kumar

    Please share offers on other Premium cards also.. Esp Iconia, Diners and bank specific ones too as the mails are often ignored or discovered late.

    This would be a joint effort of users, and will surely benefit the users..

    These voucher don’t allow you to book 2 ticket priced above ₹1000 by paying additional amount. Or else it could have been used for booking Gold Class tickets.

    1. Praveen Perumalla

      I got one 1k couple voucher last month from Amex which I used to book 3 gold class tickets paying the additional amount.

      1. Sreehari

        Praveen, how did you get this voucher? I thought the offer started from 1st June only.

  7. Pranav Kapoor

    Does Amex give reward points for adding money to paytm wallet?

  8. Anirban Roy Chowdhury

    is this offer applicable on Amex Jet Privilege platinum card as well? Thanks!

    They have launched offer for 1 coupon previously as well. In earlier versions it was for 1 coupon for 1K only depending on spend s of Rs. 1000 , 5//8 time in a month.

    Barring 1 or 2 months I did mange to qualify every time. However I would rate SBI Elite offer higher (Rs. 500 off on 2 tickets every month) as higher due to following reason :

    1) No qualification criteria for SBI offer.
    2) In Amex you are restricted to 2 tickets only. That means if my Son is accompanying me, his tickets needs to be bough separately.
    3) As someone mentioned above, Tickets under Amex offer have to be exactly Rs. 500 each or less. That means the transaction will not get through even if I am willing to pay the difference.
    4) Thus mostly I end of using it for tickets of Rs. 275/350 make. SO in effect its a 700 Rs. coupon only.
