I genuinely love Amex offers because they allow me to save money or to boost my Membership Rewards balance when I make purchases I would have made even had the offer not been available.
I rarely jump through hoops to ensure I make the most of an Amex offer (although I did shop at a Gelson’s grocery store a few months ago just to earn an easy 3,000 points) and I make sure that I don’t allow Amex offers to tempt me into making purchases I wouldn’t have otherwise made, so I do pretty well out of the deals Amex puts my way.
Right now I’m going to have to resist temptation because there’s a new Amex offer which offers a significant number of Amex Membership Rewards points for anyone looking to buy Rimowa luggage.
Rimowa is an expensive brand of luggage so spending the $500 required to trigger the 15,000 Membership Rewards Points bonus is unlikely to be challenging and, as Rimowa is one of the more popular luggage brands amongst frequent flyers, this offer will probably suit quite a few people.
I value Membership Rewards Points at a conservative 1.5 cents each so the value of the effective rebate on offer is an impressive $225. To others, the rebate is likely to be worth more.
I was targeted for this offer on my Platinum Card and, while I don’t see this offer on any of the other Amex cards I hold, it’s entirely possible that there’s another version of this offer out there (on cards which don’t earn Membership Rewards) which offers a straight $150 cash rebate.
