Amex India has got a new ‘Dine Shop & More’ offer where we can get cashback for spending at selected local stores. This is similar to the ‘Shop Small’ offer that was running a couple of months back but seems to cover more cities and merchants this time around.
Offer Details – Dine, Shop & More from Amex
|Offer||Get Rs 200 cashback each time for spending at participating ‘Dine, Shop & More’ stores|
|Maximum Cashback||Rs 1000 (So, spends need to be at 5 different stores)|
|Eligible Cities||Bangalore, Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune|
|Offer Validity||For Cardmembers in Bangalore, Delhi NCR or Mumbai the offer starts 01/04/2021. For Cardmembers in Chennai, Hyderabad or Pune the offer starts 16/04/2021. End date for all locations is 31/05/2021.|
|Store Locator||Amex Merchant Directory|
|Cashback Posting||Within 5 days of eligible spend|
|Offer Type||Offer has to be saved to the eligible card in the Amex India portal before using it for payment|
There is no minimum spend mentioned by American Express, so safe to assume the Rs 200 cashback is independent of the spend amount.
As mentioned, the offer is applicable only after enrolling the eligible card on the Amex portal. While this is a good offer, the tricky part would be to spend at 5 different eligible stores to get the maximum cashback.
But in general it is time Amex starts targeting more cities. With most of the companies extending WFH, not many people are living in the Tier 1 cities to utilize this offer. For cardholders in other cities (Amex issues cards in 25 odd cities last time I checked), some other spend based offer independent of the spend location would be great!
