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 onΒ  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.

      Cool, very few are lucky to avail the offer πŸ™‚

    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.

  4. Praveen Perumalla

    Would people buy the vouchers If I try to sell?

    1. Siddharth Post author

      Depends on what % discount you wish to offer πŸ˜‰

      1. Prashant Gupta

        Hi chirag, i have 2 vouchers of Rs. 1000 each. Share u email id.

        1. Nikhil Goel

          I”ll be willing to buy if someone is offering good discount. πŸ˜€

          1. Praveen Perumalla

            I have two 1k vouchers and one 500 voucher. Interested folks can email me at perfectpraveen[at]gmail[dot]com

          2. Prashant Gupta

            Message me on prashantgupta84 [at] gmail [dot] com
            Got the voucher yesterday only.

          3. Praveen Perumalla

            Email me at perfectpraveen[at]gmail[dot]com if anyone needs vouchers.

  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 β‚Ή1000 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.

        1. Praveen Perumalla

          Sorry. This voucher was from some other campaign and probably did not have the 500 rupee limit.

      2. Manav


        I tried to book gold class with Amex voucher, however I didnt get thru to pay the “additional amount”
        Were your ticket price below 500 each or more ? Coz I got a message that I have to book ticket below 500/- each and cannot pay differential amount. It has to be within 1000/- ( thats the voucher amount)


          1. Praveen Perumalla

            With each ticket below 500, I specifically added three tickets to see if the voucher would give the discount for two and let me pay for the additional ticket and it did. But mind you that the additional amount is for the entire third ticket and not what is left over and above 1000.

  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.

    I have met the criteria but yet to receive BMS Voucher. Called CC , they said they are going to dispatch the first set of vouchers by July 1st week through email


    1. Praveen Perumalla

      Surprising because I got three 1k vouchers so far and every time it is within 2 to 3 days of meeting the criteria.

  11. Aroon

    Not yet received even though met the criteria, seems slow ? Not like last time BMS offer…. you complete transactions and you used to get the codes thru SMS in 2-3 days – even within the same month. Let’s see…

  12. PM

    Today, I received vouchers worth 2000 for transactions done in month June-17.

  13. Balpreet Singh

    I also got the BMS voucher yesterday. I am new to Amex. Was surprised, I can use it only for 2 tickets and not more

  14. Balpreet Singh

    I also got the BMS voucher yesterday. I am new to Amex. Was surprised, I can use it only for 2 tickets and not more. I thought it will be based on the rupee transaction.. However that I can buy only 2 tickets.. seems to be a big constraint.


  15. Anirban Roy Chowdhury

    Received BMS voucher within 2 days of meeting the criteria in the month of July. Awesome service from Amex. Yes, there are some restrictions, but not a bad deal i suppose considering amex accepts wallet recharges as valid transactions for this offer.

  16. Manav

    Amex should allow buying of tickers more than 500/- each, Difference we should be allowed to be paid by Amex card.
    This way we can opt for Gold Class / Insignia etc. πŸ™‚

  17. Mouli

    Good News For those in Chennai. Through BMS you can book tickets to IMAX screen(In Luxe) also the ticket cost is around 480 per person . I used 2000 worth BMS voucher for almost the same amount. Previously we can use 1000 rs voucher only for 300 rs as ticket price are capped at 120 and only two 2 tickets are allowed to book in this offer.Enjoy IMAX for free

  18. Siddharth Mehta

    I absolutely love this offer as it fits my plan perfectly. I have an Inox IMAX and Insignia screen near to my home and it is priced exactly at 500 on weeknights. Not sure if anyone mentioned, but this voucher even waives of the convenience fee .. which is awesome πŸ™‚ So, I get to watch 2 movies every month with my wife in luxury πŸ™‚

    Since my monthly spends are high, I don’t find it difficult to meet the criteria at all.

  19. jitendra saraogi

    if any body interested in these bookmyshow vouchers of value for Rs.1000/- each for maximum 2 tickets as i have these and may offer same for Rs.800/- @20% discount.
    i have 4 vouchers valid upto 29/9/17.

  20. Fareed

    I got BMS voucher for 1000 in first week of September. I booked two tickets for 370 in second week. and when i tried again for next booking today the voucher was not working. That means the voucher can be used once only. It was not mentioned in the conditions. I was not happy with misguided promotion from AMEX.
