A quick 10k bonus MR points thanks to AMEX offers

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.
