Amex Offer: Get 2X MR Points on education spends

By | January 31, 2020

Last year Amex was very aggressive from Jan 2019 but it doesn’t seem to work that way this year so far. However, here’s a new 2X bonus points offer on education spends this 2020. Here are the offer details:

Offer Details

  • Offer: Get 2X reward Points on Education spends (2RP on every Rs.50 spend)
  • Validity: 1st Feb 2020  – 31st March 2020
  • Max. Points: 5000 Bonus Points
  • Type: For select cards that received communication
  • Fulfilment: 30th June 2020
  • Source

5K bonus points has the value of minimum Rs.2500-Rs.2900 and sometimes even Rs.5000 based on where you redeem your points. Check out how to maximize Amex MR Points.

While its not an amazing offer by itself, it certainly increases the reward rate of the card and also helps to reach the monthly vouchers if you’ve Amex Reserve.

Further, remember that more spends on Amex cards = better targeted offers in future. Atleast that’s what is happening in past 2 years.

Bottomline

While its a decent offer, I wish they rather had 3X or 5X and a better upper cap like 10K or 20K points, provided that the education spends are usually not a small amount.

While some may like it, for most others, HDFC 5X Points Offer on Education spends works better.

    Most education spends are due in first fortnight of the quarters. With offer dates from 1st Feb to 31 Mar and targeted offer it is quite amusing what they are targeting.

    Shouldnt a bank treat all its customers equal and provide same offers/benefits to all if they levy same fees/charges to all? isnt this discriminatory?
    Secondly, school fees are usually paid quarterly – so in Jan and Apr. Not sure if this offer will be useful?
