In May 2019, American Express acquired Resy – a restaurant reservations system originally built as the OpenTable killer.

They have done a number of promotions since then, but none like these elevated offers that surpass public and referral offers.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

amex resy

Amex Gold X Resy Welcome Bonus Offer

On the Amex Gold card, you’ll get the same 60,000 points for $4,000 in 6 months as the public Amex Gold offer, but they are throwing inĀ 20% back as a statement credit on purchases made at restaurants worldwide for 12 months, up to $250 back.

Amex Platinum X Resy Welcome Bonus Offer

On the Amex Platinum card, once again, you’ll get the 75,000 points for $5,000 in spend within 6 months. But you’ll also get 20% back as a statement credit on purchases made at restaurants worldwide for 12 months, up to $300 back.

On top of that, you willĀ get 10x points at U.S. Gas Stations and U.S. Supermarkets, on up to $15,000 in combined purchases, during your first 6 months.

Note that you don’t need to use Resy in any way to get the dining credits. I would also be careful about how fast I spent that $15k on the gas and supermarkets… it’s not like Amex hasn’t tempted us before with huge multipliers on groceries, only to take the points back for anything gift card related.

I have to say, if you are eligible for a new welcome bonus on either card, these offers sure are compelling!


For both offers, you’ll need to apply through Resy here.

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
