Easy pickings for 5,500 MR points for only $290 spend.

 

They were on my personal Plat and PRG card.


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.


Say what?! Who doesn't love the Olive GARDEN?! This is probably the one I'm MOST excited for Smiley LOL


Perhaps I'm a bit spoiled, but I'm walking distance to the South and North Ends. In a city known around the world for its Italian food, going to Olive Garden is like going to Chili's for Mexican.

I would  never eat at the Olive Garden or shop at Nike.  Crate and Barrel I might buy something but combine it with a shopping portal so I get even more points.  Macy's you can get 2 Southwest points per dollar.  So you could get 1500 MR and 200 Southwest Points for 100 dollar purchase plus whatever points you get on the card you use. 

BOA Premium Rewards, AMEX BCE, AMEX PRG, AMEX Ameriprise Platinum, AMEX SPG, CITI AADvantage Platinum, Chase Hyatt, Chase Southwest Premier, Chase Southwest Plus, Chase Marriott Business, Barclay Arrival +, Barclay AAdvantage Red Aviator, Barclay Aviator Business, USAA Prefered Cash Rewards, Citi Thank You Premier, JCrew, Pottery Barn, Express, NFCU Go Rewards.

Olive Garden is a chain restaurant that serves Italian food that has been dumbed down so it will appeal to the American palate.  Nearly every American city has better Italian restaurants than Olive Garden.

In my wallet: Chase Sapphire Reserve • PenFed Power Cash Rewards
Also have: Chase United MileagePlus Explorer • UNFCU Azure • NFCU cashRewards • NFCU Go Rewards • PenFed Promise

Unless of course you have a dumbed down American palate, then it's the place for you and why it does rather well!.

Dumbed down, yes. But there is, at least, something to be said for consistency. As a former NYer, I've had some great Italian food...but also been to some family-owned places where the food was just awful. My guess is that with a good location, they get enough traffic from one-time customers that they don't really need regulars.

Re: More Great Amex MR Offers

I'm sad because I'm not seeing any of these.

Also, I think I see all the 2x bonus MR offers except for the QuikTrip one, which I would probably use the most.

 

Blargh
