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 bookings

Beginning 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

A slightly more inclusive offer, Resy is also offering all American Express cardholders presale reservations to Off Menu Week – no matter what kind of rewards you earn.

Off Menu Week provides a unique opportunity for attendees to taste off-menu items and chef experiments at top restaurants in the country’s biggest food cities. Participating cities include New York City, Chicago and Austin. As an Amex cardholder, you’ll be able to book your spot at participating restaurants before they open to the public. Event dates are as follows:

  • New York City – Off Menu Week runs from Sept. 16 to 22, 2019. Amex cardholders can book reservations from Aug. 19, 2019. General reservations begin Aug. 22, 2019.
  • Chicago – Off Menu Week runs from Oct. 21 to 27, 2019. Amex cardholders can book reservations from Sept. 19, 2019. General reservations begin Sept. 23, 2019.
  • Austin – Off Menu Week runs from Dec. 9 to 15, 2019. Amex cardholders can book reservations from Nov. 7, 2019. General reservations begin Nov. 11, 2019.
