7 Best Amex Offers to Check out this May 2019

By | May 27, 2019

As you may know, American Express India is aggressive with Shopping & Travel offers since the beginning of 2019 and it seems to be continuing for the rest of the year. Here are some of the best Amex Offers that’s worth exploring for the month of May 2019 & beyond.

1. Supplementary Card Offer

This offer is there for a while and they’ve extended the dates thrice now. This is indeed one of the easiest ways to get additional value from American Express Credit Cards.

I recently swapped my Jet Card for Reserve that gets me Rs.6,000 worth of Amazon vouchers, apart from the 11K points welcome benefit. So this is one of the very few ways to extract value from Reserve card.

2. Amex Hilton Offer

  • Offer: Get ₹4,000 cashback* on your stay by spending ₹20,000 or more at any participating Hilton properties by July 31, 2019.
  • Terms & Conditions

This is yet another amazing Offer on Amex cards that’s worth availing if you’re into Hilton.

3. Upto 20% Discount on Yatra

  • Get flat 20% instant discount* on select domestic hotels with no minimum booking amount and no maximum discount limit.
  • Get flat 6% instant discount* on International Holiday packages on a minimum transaction of ₹20,000. Maximum discount is limited to ₹20,000.
  • Get flat 8% instant discount* on domestic flights on a minimum transaction of ₹3,000. Maximum discount is limited to ₹750.
  • Get flat 6% instant discount* on international flights on a minimum transaction of ₹25,000. Maximum discount is limited to ₹5,000.
  • Promo Code: YTAMEX19
  • Terms & Conditions

This is a new offer and is quite useful if you’re into travel. While most top-end properties are not part of the deal, there are still some sweets spots that you can explore, like the one below 🙂

4. 55% Off on OYO Rooms

  • Get flat 55% discount on all reservations at OYO Hotels and Homes made using the promocode OYOAMEX55.
  • This offer is valid from April 30, 2019 – May 31, 2019 for bookings and stay both.
  • Terms & Conditions

I don’t know how 55% these days is possible. I tried few hotels on OYO and I don’t see the offer to be practically working the way we think. Maybe I’m missing something. Have you been using OYO Amex offers lately?

5. EazyDiner 5X Points Offer

  • Cardmembers can pre-book the Foodie Award Month Curated Menus at Rs. 800, Rs. 1200 and Rs.1800 (all inclusive of taxes) at the winning restaurants of the ‘EazyDiner Foodie Awards’, depending of the kind of restaurant and get a guarantee seat at the following restaurants and earn 5X membership reward points as well.
  • Terms & Conditions

Earning Amex points has always been tough and this offer is here to help you grab some extra points on the spend. Yet, I wish they had 10X instead.

6. 25% Off on Luxury Brands

  • Enjoy 25% less* with your American Express® Platinum Travel Credit Card on full-price merchandise of: Armani Exchange | Bally | Bottega Veneta | Brooks Brothers | Canali | Coach | DC | Diesel | Dune London | Emporio Armani | GAS | Giorgio Armani | G-Star RAW | Hugo BOSS | Jimmy Choo | Kate Spade | Luxe Bridge | Michael Kors | Mothercare | Paul Smith | Paul & Shark | Salvatore Ferragamo | Scotch & Soda | Steve Madden | Superdry | Thomas Pink | The White Crow | TUMI | Villeroy & Boch
  • Terms & Conditions

While most of us maynot be shopping with these brands, there are some sweet spots here as well and for those who’re into premium brands, 25% is HUGE.

Here’s a tip from our reader Dr.Patil: “Visited Michael Kors in Phoenix mills Lower Parel. They confirmed the offer. A watch costing Rs.16,900 will cost Rs.12,800 after discount. I plan to buy it soon.

7. First Year Free Cards

Last but not the least, American Express Started issuing the MRCC & Plat travel Credit cards with First Year Free benefit from Jan 2019 for a limited period and this is getting extended.

To enjoy all the above offers and even ore that’s set to come, you need an Amex card and this is the best time to get one. Details below,

    Has Amex stopped the bookmyshow offer? Could not avail it in 2018 and 2019

      Seems they have stopped, I too haven’t received any BMS offer?
      Even during the diwali offer,they gave Paytm Movie voucher only and not BMS

    I got the AMEX platinum reserve card this year, though got some 15K points, I think Plat Travel card is better.

  3. Shashank Golatkar

    I have availed the 55% off on OYO. It works well with OYO wizard. There was also 60% off on HDFC and SBI. However you can use it only a limited number of times. I don’t have a count of how many though.

    Does the Amex cards earn points in rent giraffe? I see no posts about it. Further in my welcome kit of amex mrcc, found another offer saying 2k bonus points for creating standing instructions. If this works, then by paying rent easily I can achieve 22k points as well as get the annual membership waived without spending much!

    My understanding is acceptance of Amex at offline merchant POS is poor.
    Do tell me if I am wrong.
    Also, how is the current acceptance of AMEX at online merchants?

  7. Ameya

    There is a great offer on Fuel from 15th June to 30th September.
    10 RP on INR 100 spent on Fuel.
    Min transaction worth INR 1000 to be eligible for bonus points.
    Max 5 times during the offer period.
    Varying convenience charge will be levied on all marketers except HPCL (0%).

    Just came across your awesome website. Have binge-read almost all your reviews in 2 hrs!

    So, applying for my first credit card, settled for IndusInd Legend Card. (Since that’s the only one BankBazaar said I am eligible for being a 1st time card applicant. Not considering FD cards and my salary is 26 lakh p.a). So my IndusInd card is on the way.

    However, what Im dying to know is how can I plan to attack the best airmiles card from here on. I also want that Amex Gold in my wallet! Asking this because, Im sure the good cards need a minimum credit card history, so how long of a credit card history I need on this IndusInd card to be able to attack the Amex Gold and other AirMile Beast Cards.
