[Targeted] AmEx Offer: Various Local Restaurants, 5%-30% Cash Back

Update 6/19/20: Looks like more of these offers have been loaded now.

The Offer

No direct link, targeted offer

  • American Express has a variety of offers to local restaurants. It seems most people are being offered 5-30% back in the form of statement credit to local restaurants in their area

The Fine Print

  • Varies by offer

Our Verdict

It’ll be interesting to see if this is being powered by American Express themselves or if they are are using a third party. Might be worth checking to see if they are any interesting ones near you.

PSA: you can often follow the Hat tip that DoC nicely puts each post in order to see additional info that DoC may have left out. (e.g., I was looking for an example of what this particular Amex offer would look like.)

I’ve been using these on my Hilton aspire card. Getting paid to eat at these places!

These LOCAL offers typically have an address in the offer. They’re different than chain offers.

Here’s the only one I found so far (and I have no interest in frozen yogurt places) and see how it lists the address in the offer:

Get 50% back on a single purchase, up to $150
Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt – 732 Montana Ave

The above offers shows on all of my cards (since I haven’t added it to any of them), and expires in about a month.

I also have offers for various chains, but they’re different, no address listed.

In the past I’ve had a half dozen or so local restaurant offers at one time, so this with just one so far is not impressive, even if the discount amount is impressive.

Who is buying $300 of frozen yogurt? That’s a lifetime supply.

Yeah, I had that same thought when I saw a similar offer (the only one that shows up on any of my cards):

“Get 40% back as a one-time statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single eligible purchase in-restaurant or for takeout dining at [a local ice cream place – name and address] by 7/22/2020. Limit of 1 statement credit of up to $150. See terms for exclusions.”

…why would anyone be spending $375 on ice cream, in a single purchase???

But I went to their website out of curiosity, and apparently they have an ice cream truck you can reserve for events. If you pick the 200-person version it’s $550. So I guess it’s not out of the question!

OK I found the email . I forgot that I had also gotten a $5/15 offer for Shake Shack. I bought gift cards the last time I had that offer. Sadly you cannot use gift cards in their app! I do not seem to have received a Cheesecake Factory offer.

I have none of these. Are these sent by email or do they appear in your cards like regular amex offers?

They appear just like regular Amex offers. FYI: It looks extremely local. The restaurants that show for me are only within a couple of miles of my address on file.

I got 5% off at PF Changs and 10% off at a bunch of Darden chains (Olive Garden, Bahama Breeze, Capital Grille, Yard House).

More interesting is a $10 off $50 at Goldbelly (can be used 3 times). Goldbelly ships from a bunch of well known local food places around the country (Gino’s in Chicago, some good places in NY). They’re pretty expensive but the are $15 and $20 off coupons and with the extra $10 off it’s not an entirely bad deal.

Update — it was $5/50 for PF Changs. Not that I’m going to use it.

Q: Name 3 restaurants I would never visit.

A: see new AMEX offers for Olive Garden, CPK, and PF Chang’s

Oh well. Maybe next time.

Those 3 are considered local restaurants instead of national chains?

I think these offers are different from the local offers this post is referring to. For example, I got 20% a local (non-chain) Pho restaurant just miles from my place.
