Most of you probably already know what AMEX offers are. If you have an AMEX card, you get periodic offers of either getting a statement credit or bonus Membership Reward points. after spending so much at a certain vendor.
Well I was planning on going to an OKC thunder game and needed last minute tickets. I was already looking at StubHub and Ticketmaster and the tickets I wanted were going for around $300 total. I just happened to look at AMEX offers that day and noticed there was an offer to receive 10k MR points after spending $300 at Ticketgalaxy.com. While they had some extra service fees, the tickets I wanted ended up being $329. The extra $29 is easily worth 10k AMEX MRs. Most people value AMEX MR points at 1.5 or 2 cents, so its easily worth $150. (although I can stretch them to 5 cents if redeeming for an intl first class flight.)
The MR bonus points posted 2 days after I bought the tickets. Already went to the game and there were no problems.
