If you have a AMEX card, you are probably aware of AMEX offers. These are periodic offers that appear in your AMEX account and may be bonus points or a credit back.
I was going to an upcoming OKC Thunder game and had been looking at tickets for a few days. I just happened to look at my AMEX account and noticed an offer for 10k bonus points when making a least a $300 transaction from Ticketgalaxy.com. I found some tickets I wanted that were $329 after fees. Similar tickets were on sale for about $280-$300 from other sites. So this was a no brainer as 10k AMEX points are easily worth $150.
I mad the transaction and 2 days later my points were posted!
