American Express (U.S.) currently has a new, targeted card member offer for Rimowa Baggage Purchases of $500 or more resulting in 15,000 Memberships Rewards or $150 Cash Back!
American Express has several decent travel related offers over the year, the most interesting of which we’re usually covering here on LoyaltyLobby. The offers are usually U.S. card member specific but other countries have them as well!
As mentioned you can find this offer by logging into your online account and look below the current account activity:
Is this a decent offer?
Yes – if you plan on purchasing something from Rimowa either way and don’t plan on traveling to Europe, especially Germany in the near future to get it. While prices for Rimowa have risen in Germany as well, at least as a non-EU resident you’d be able to claim VAT back and profit from lower retail prices.
Again – this offer is targeted (not available to all card members) and purchases have to be made until July 15th 2019 in order to count.
Keep in mind that purchases have to be made with Rimowa directly – either store or online – and buying items at retailers such as Saks or Neimans won’t count for this promotion.
15,000 Membership Rewards points is a pretty significant value, depending on how it is user it is at least $150 in cash (by offsetting charges on the account, even a bit more by cashing out via Schwab Platinum) or ~$200-250 in points to a transfer partner.
These are the associated Amex Terms & Conditions for the promotion:
