[Highly YMMV] American Express Sending Out $100 Giftcards To Johnny Was/Vincero Watches/Frontgate & $200 For Ramy Brook

Update: $100 cards also sent out for Vincero Watches and $200 for Ramy Brook

American Express has sent out $100 gift cards to clothing store Johnny Was to some cardholders. Normally when we see these types of giftcard freebies they are restricted to Platinum cardholders, but this time readers have received them holding the Bonvoy Brilliant card as well. Not sure how else American Express is deciding to target cardholders.

Wish I would have got this one. Some of those watches look pretty nice and aren’t too expensive! I got $200 to Ramy Brook but they don’t have men’s clothing and are super expensive anyway.

Off topic (though pertains to Amex) but not sure where else to post query.
Is there any benefit to using a “pure” Amex card directly from their payment network vs. a similar card from the “issuer”? Eg. an Amazon or NavyFederal Amex card?
The perks and no AF from these “issuer” cards seem more appealing.

Are the people who get sent these gift cards high spenders? How many AMEX cards do you have or how long have you established an account with them?

I’ve been with Amex since 2013. I’m assuming I received a $200 Ramy Brook gift card for my only platinum card open at this time which is the biz version i opened July 2018. Here are my accounts with amount of spend in the last 12 months:

Platinum Biz (opened 7/18)- ~$11k (90% MS)
Blue Biz (opened 6/17) – ~$20k (15% MS)
SPG Biz (now Marriott – opened 10/17) – $0
Blue cash everyday (opened 6/17) – $0
Hilton Ascend (opened 6/18) – ~$3k (100% MS)
Cash Mag (opened 2/19) – ~$1k (100% MS)

Platinum Schwab (opend 12/17 — closed 1/19) – $200
Platinum Mercedes Benz (opened 3/18 — closed 4/19) – ~$5k (99% MS)

As you can see, the only card I use daily is my Blue biz and even then I wouldn’t say I am a high spender. I don’t think anyone knows how we are being targeted.

I got the watch one last year and I am not a high spender at all.

Gold Card holder. Got a $100 for Vincero Watches. Too bad I really dislike these overpriced made in china watches.

had Plat for nearly 30 yrs – 1st gift ever – got JohnnyW, but I’m a man

Received $100 for Johnny Was today. Very odd choice by AMEX since they don’t sell any men’s clothing. Not the smartest gift, but I’ll give it to a lady in my life.
