iDine/Rewards Network - 3x points with HHonors Express Lane Bonus via Amex
Sep 21, 10, 10:48 am
I know there is already a post about the Express Lane Bonus buried in the "Share iDine Bonuses" thread, but I want to point out that it is targeted to anyone with an HHonors Amex—and not only for people who received the promo email.
If you have an HHonors Amex but did not receive the promo invitation, you can sign up by logging onto the Amex website. You will find a registration link for the promo at the bottom of the Account Summary page.
The promo gives your triple points for 30 days. You must register by 30 September.

Point #1 indicates it is not open to anyone- have you had experience in getting it for a non-targeted member? (I got the offer last week also).

I was not targeted via email and it did not show up for me in the bonus section of the HHonors Dining site.
However, I was able to find the link by poking around on the American Express website (I found it at the bottom of the Account Summary screen). The website ad (which I wasn't able to copy) indicates the offer is available to anyone with an HHonors Amex.
At least from my reading, the posts in the iDines bonus thread suggested the only way you could sign up was if you received an email invite; so, my point in posting was that it seemed to be available to all HHonors Amex holders (i.e., a slightly broader, but still targeted, group of people).
Did I answer your question? Or, maybe miss your point entirely?

The bottom of the page on my Accounts Summary page doesn't show any such link, unfortunately.
