Its been just a couple of weeks since i received my American express platinum travel credit card and its awesome to see some nice movie offers around. American Express India have come up with an enticing offer in partnership with Bookmyshow.
While ICICI is flashing their useless Buy1 Get 1 offer (which is as tough as an IRCTC tatkal ticket to avail) on their coral credit card all over the web, I wonder why Amex isnt advertising such a nice offer on their website or via email. Somehow i came to know through my friend and applied for the same.
American Express Bookmyshow Offer:
The Offer: Rs.1000 worth Bookmyshow voucher
The Rules: You need to make atleast 8 transactions worth Rs.1000 or above in a calendar month to receive a Bookmyshow “couple voucher” worth Rs.1000. A Movie Money Voucher eCode can be used to only book 2 tickets in a single transaction, wherein individual ticket price does not exceed Rs. 500
- You must have registered for the offer before making transactions. Register Now
- You can spend on same merchant multiple times to avail the offer, as long as everyone reading this misuses it 😉
- The Offer expires on: June 2016
- The convenience fee will not be levied while redeeming the voucher, which is usually around ~Rs.30
While Rs.1000 voucher seems to be a nice deal, most non-metro cities have the ticket cost around Rs.150 netting at Rs.300 while the rest Rs.700 goes useless. So, this gonna be a good money saver for you only if you’re in metros where ticket costs are sky high, as in Delhi.
Whatsoever, I’ve did 8 Transactions of Rs.1000+ each for the last month, lets see when they gonna issue the Vouchers. It should practically be issued within 2 weeks though their terms and conditions says 60 days. I’ll keep this post updated once i receive them 🙂
Update: I received the coupon code on 7th April for the txn’s i done on March. Amex again Woos me with the speed!
Have you availed Amex Bookmyshow voucher in the past? Feel free to share your experience below.
I received the Bookmyshow voucher in last 2 months on my Amex gold card.. watched jungle book in 4DX to reap its maximum value!!
That’s good to hear Ashu 🙂
Rbl bank fun card has similar offer with bms. I think rbl offers better.
Yes, its just good for movie + KFC vouchers
I received 2 vouchers in the last 2 months on exactly the same date.
Does Amex gold card still offer movie vouchers ?
i was told this has been discontinued, How does it work now
It was discontinued earlier and they restarted the offer again.
Any idea how to avail it now, call ccare ?
And when are the vouchers credited > 8 transactions of 1k+ per month ? or is it different on Gold card
Enroll it yourself. Check the link inside article.
Then make transactions. Voucher will be delivered to your mobile via SMS.
As of now it is stopped right, so there is no point in doing 8 transactions from this point on ??
Any idea if they are renewing the same.
Yes, its over. I see no sign of extension as their link is no more active too.
Did anyone got the voucher for 8 transaction done in the moth of June. From the above comments it seems it should have come by 7th-July. But I didn’t receive it yet. Plz reply
Yes, i’ve received the voucher for June. Call Customer care if there is any issue. They solve faster 🙂
I used to do 8 transactions in the first few days of the month and I used to get the vouchers within a week of my 8th transaction (I love Amex for such speed). However, this month I haven’t received the voucher although I have done my 8th transaction on 3th July. Does this mean this offer has been discontinued? I hope not 🙁
Offer was there only for June Amit. So you won’t get the coupon this time.
The registration link doesn’t seem to work now. I see a blank page. Have they discontinued the offer?
Yes, its Discontinued.
Does it mean that for 8 transactions in July 16, there will be no bms voucher?
Also, by what does the June voucher have to be utilised? I received it on 7 july, so is it by 7 August of by 30 july?
Yea.. no voucher for July.
Am not sure about validity of the voucher as well..
Vouchers are valid for 30 days from the date of issue…but sad to know it’s discontinued from this month
How to know, when they re-start such offers?
They will be intimating over email mostly.

Thanks Sid and Arup. Waiting for the article. I have not yet recieved any intimation from AMEX on this!
Amex has relaunched this offer again, albeit in new form.
Every month, make 2 or more transactions on your American Express Card + 2 or more transactions on the Supplementary Card(s) (minimum value of Rs.2,500 per transaction) get a Movie voucher worth Rs.1,000
Make 4 or more transactions on your American Express Card + 4 or more transactions on the Supplementary Card(s) every month (minimum value of Rs.2,500 per transaction) get Movie vouchers worth Rs.2,000
Generally they put limitation of couple ticket on 1000 voucher… which I think spoils the fun.
In Chennai the ticket price is capped at 120 rs so the voucher worth is only 240. I have raised this issue to AMEX asked them to remove the limit of only two tickets can be booked. Whoever is in Chennai plz raise the same to customer care
So to avail this offer one should have supplementary card 🙂 (which is not cheap compared to other bank charges)
Well i tried to search about this offer on google but could not find the link.. not could find any such information on amex site nor any such email informing their customer for this offer.. it seems it is Hidden offer 🙂
I think IndusInd Bank gives some good offer on their Debit card for Bookmyshow.
My 4 (2+2) transactions of RS2500+ were completed on 18th of June and another 4 (2+2) on 25th of June.
I still havn’t received any voucher.
Is this offer available on amex rewards card ?
