I don't know if I'd say easy - the thought of eating at Olive Garden makes me cringe. Probably why it's the highest points/spend ratio on that list.

Re: More Great Amex MR Offers

The Olive Garden locations around greater Boston are actually okay.  I have certainly eaten at some lackluster ones elsewhere.

 

I was able to add $10 off $40+ to Starwood and Delta cards, and 1000 MRs for $40+ on my ED AU card, but it doesn't show for my 3 MR-earning cards.  FWIW, I got the same offer back in 2016 and used it on both Platinum and PRG.

I think it was a "welcome to BBP" thing, though...not an offer for existing cards.

Spend: CSR/Freedom/FU, BBP, Costco, Discover
Perks: Schwab Platinum, IHG, Hyatt, SPG
Rarely useful: BCE, ED, Arrival
2019 downgrade: Prestige

I'm taking some in the office to lunch, soup and salad isn't too bad.  Double dip points and business.

Had this one a week or so ago, but only on DW's ED and her 3 AU (Plat, PGR, Blue) cards.  Easy 8,000 MRs for $200 in Amazon gift certificate reloads!
