American Express has been launching a number of lucrative offers of late and the latest one to drop into my online account is an offer that offers a 6,000 Membership Rewards points bonus when shopping online at GoPro.com.
Get 6,000 additional Membership Rewards points one-time by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $300+ in one or more eligible transactions online at GoPro.com by 12/17/2019.
Full terms and conditions are reproduced at the end of this post.
With GoPro cameras being incredibly popular with travelers and AvGeeks this should be an offer that a lot of readers can make the most of but, with the cheapest GoPro now retailing at $199 you’re going to need to buy a few accessories if that’s the camera you choose and want to trigger this bonus.
The good news here is that you don’t have to spend $300 in one go to trigger the bonus points so anyone choosing to buy the “HERO7 White” can try it out at home first before deciding what accessories they need – that’s always helpful if you want to avoid buying redundant/unnecessary add-ons (I’ve been there!).
I should point out that there’s also a second GoPro Amex offer that’s appearing in cardholder accounts and this one offers a straight cash rebate rather than bonus Membership Rewards points.
Personally, I prefer the bonus points offer over the cash rebate.
I value Membership Rewards points at 1.5 cents each so the bonus points offer me an effective rebate of $90 and, as I know that I can currently transfer Membership Rewards over to British Airways at a ratio of 1 to 1.4, I can be sure that the bonus points I earn from this offer will be more than enough to buy me a one-way short-haul award (on a oneworld carrier) which would almost certainly cost more than $90.
With not too much effort I could probably use the bonus points to get me double the value that the cash rebate is offering.
6,000 bonus Membership Rewards points is a nice haul for relatively little spending and with the offer valid in a period when a lot of people will be buying gifts for friends and family I expect a good number of readers to be able to make the most of this.
Terms & Conditions Per AMEX
Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards that are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of purchase are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Your enrollment does not extend to any other Cards that may be linked to the same Membership Rewards program account (such as Additional Cards). Offer is non-transferable.
Offer valid online at GoPro.com or via merchant mobile app. Excludes transactions made via international versions of the website, purchases made via authorized retailers, and GoPro Plus. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the additional points. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the additional Membership Rewards points if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party.
Limit of 6,000 additional Membership Rewards points per Card Member. The enrolled Card account must be active, not be past due, canceled or have a returned payment outstanding to receive the additional Membership Rewards points. Any additional points you receive through this offer are in addition to the points you would normally receive for purchases charged to your Card, but the number of additional points you receive will be based on the purchase price after any credit or other discount is applied. When we calculate the additional points benefit for Amex EveryDay® Card products, points awarded under this offer will not be included. Additional points will be credited to your Membership Rewards program account within 90 days after 12/17/2019, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. We may not credit additional points to, or we may take away additional points that have been credited to, your program account if the qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. Terms and conditions for the Membership Rewards program apply.
