Earn free 1,500 Amex Membership Rewards with resy.com

Earlier this year, Amex acquired Resy, which is an online restaurant booking/reservation platform and a competitor to OpenTable.  Resy currently supports over 4,000 restaurants in over 200 cities worldwide.  The partnership has been overall beneficial to Amex cardholders as Resy has offered preferred dining times for Amex Platinum and Centurion cardholders along with bonus Membership Rewards points.  From August 15th - September 30, Resy is offering Amex MR cardholders 500 bonus MR for each reservation nationwide, up to 3x for a total of 1,500 bonus MR.

Here’s how to earn Membership Rewards points on your Resy dining experiences:

  1. Find and book your reservation(s) on Resy.com or the Resy app
  2. Add your American Express® Membership Rewards enrolled Card to your Resy wallet before you dine
  3. Book and dine between August 15 – September 30, 2019 and receive additional points for up to 3 bookings

And to add your eligible American Express MR Card to your Resy account, simply follow these steps:
  1. Sign in to your Resy account, via the Resy app or Resy.com.
  2. Go to your profile (select Settings if using the Resy app).
  3. Click into the “Payment” section.
  4. Click “Add credit card.”
  5. Enter your eligible American Express Card information.
Reservations made prior to August 15 won't qualify towards this promo, so if you have a restaurant booking made post-August 15, you may want to cancel and re-book if available to earn the 500 bonus MR.  Also, keep in mind that you need an Amex MR card to be eligible for this offer, such as the Amex Platinum, Gold, or the EveryDay Preferred card.  My go-to Amex MR would be the Gold card, which earns unlimited 4x at restaurants worldwide including with those booked through Resy.  If you're interested in applying for the Amex Gold card, you can do so via my referral link for a 40k bonus MR sign-up offer.

Book the Michelin-starred Birdsong restaurant in San Francisco via Resy.

Bottom line

Overall, this is a good partnership between Amex and Resy.  Hopefully, we will see even more bonus offers in the future for Amex cardholders.  If you plan on dining out and have an Amex MR card, signing up and registering for this offer is a no-brainer as it's an easy 1,500 MR points.  And remember that dining out doesn't mean that you need to cheat on your diet, so do choose your restaurants and meals in the best interest of your health.
