Similar situation, I have it as the AU of my wife's Platinum, but she doesn't have it on her primary card.

I know it says that gift cards are excluded, but does anyone know if that is true? They are supposedly excluded from the airline fee reimbursement as well, but there is an easy workaround for that, so I am wondering if it will work here. It has the one or more transactions language, so it may be possible to do 6 $50 GCs.

In the past I've been able to trigger the offer with a single gift card purchase, no need to slice to $50 chunks. The trick is that you need to make sure you're visiting the desktop web site for gift card purchases. The mobile site for some reason routes the transaction through a third party, and those purchases don't qualify.

Click on the offer and it will tell you exactly to which hotels the offer applies.

I have two offers with BG for Amex Plat:

1. Bergdorf Goodman - Spend $500+, get 10,000 Membership Rewards® Points

2. Bergdorf Goodman - Get one additional Membership Rewards® point for each dollar you spend

Am I able to double dip if I activate both offers onto my amex plat? Or will one take priority over the other?

Thanks in advance

And just as a follow-up, the $60 credit did indeed post to my account today. I purchased a $100 GC and a $200 GC earlier in the week. So this still works.

Yes, when one purchase meets qualifications of multiple offers, you'll get all of them.

So buying Hilton or Wynn, if possible, gift cards would trigger bonus? Then you would need to use by Amex offer expiration date or gift card exp date?

Did anyone successfully trigger the Amex offer when using the Hilton offer (spend $300, get 3,500 MR) on international Hilton properties that charged in USD?

the terms said only valid for Hilton properties located in US and US territories
