In March 2019, American Express announced the acquisition of Resy (a restaurant reservation platform) and promised to offer unique experiences to cardholders as a result. Now, Amex users are starting to see the benefits of this acquisition, as Resy and American Express start to roll out special promotions.
From bonus points on reservations made on Resy to exclusive access to unique events, Amex cardholders can already get real value out of the partnership.
Earn bonus points on Resy bookingsBeginning Aug. 15, 2019, Membership Rewards cardholders can receive a 500-point bonus for making a reservation on Resy through Sept. 30, 2019. Even better, eligible cardholders can take advantage of the promotion up to three times – allowing users to rack up to 1,500 points.
To take advantage of this promotion, you simply book your reservation as normal through the Resy website or app and then add your Amex card that earns Membership Rewards points to your Resy wallet. Points will appear on your card statement within eight to 12 weeks of the promotion period ending.
Reserve your seat for Off Menu Week early
