American Express offers are always lucrative because they could get better deals from merchants given the fact that the Amex cardholders are considered to be premium. So here are some of the offers that i feel is worth exploring.
1. Amex Insurance Offer
- Offer: Get 10 MR Points on every Rs.100 Spend. That’s 5% value in my books.
- Max Points: 5000 MR Points (2.5k INR value)
- Expires: 31st March 2019
This is definitely a nice offer if you’re having upcoming Insurance payments. Note that this is a targeted offer. So if you haven’t received the communication, you may not be able to avail the offer.
Amex has been sending this offer in batches to various cardmembers since past 2 weeks, so you may need to wait for sometime if you haven’t got the communication yet.
2. Amex Hyatt Offer
- Offer: Rs.4000 Cashback on Rs.20,000 Spend (20% Value)
- Condition: Applicable only for first 10,000 Cardmembers. Hope they takedown the link after that
This offer is there for about a month and it totally makes sense to avail if you’re staying at Hyatt properties.
Moreover, as Hyatt also is running other promos, you may double dip. If you plan to stay longer, you may even use multiple cards to save more.
3. Amex Travel Offer
- Offer 1: 10X points on hotels (Domestic/International) and 3X points on Flights for all bookings made on Amex Travel website. Applicable on select Cards. Not applicable on Plat Travel & Jet Cards.
- Offer 2: 15X points on hotels & 5X Points on Flights on Plat Charge Card & Centurion.
This translates to be 20 MR Points per Rs.100 spent on most cards for hotel booking, which gives nice 10% value. Makes sense for premium hotels as you generally don’t get OTA discounts there.
4. Amex Taj Offer
- Offer: 25% off on Best Available rate (roomy only offer).
- Valid on: Centurion, Platinum Charge, Platinum Corporate Card, & Platinum Reserve
While this appears to be an amazing offer, i wonder why Amex isn’t aggressive promoting the same. If you’re availing this and paying with Amex voucher received from Amex Plat travel card, you’ll save quite a lot.
5. Amex Paytm Flights Offer
- Offer: Rs.1500 Cashback on spending Rs.7500 & above on flights.
That’s amazing 20% savings, which is massive discount when it comes to flights category.
6. Amex Zomato 50% Off
- Offer: 50% Off on Zomato online ordering, upto Rs.250 per order, upto 3 times per card
- Expires: 31st Jan 2019
- Detailed Offer info
This is one of the hottest offer i know of at the moment. I’m making good use of it pretty well.
7. Amex Platinum Travel Card Offer
- Offer: Get Platinum Travel Card Free for 1st Year
- Validity: Limited Period offer.
- Get it FREE – Apply Now
- Detailed Offer info
While these are some of the offers that gives good value on spend in my perspective, there are also many other offers like accelerated points on Educational spends, Upto 20% off on select Future group brands, Marriott 25% off on F&B etc. that maybe attractive to few.
