Up to 10 points per dollar For Grocery, Dining and Food Delivery Purchases!

To the point

There has never been a better time to use an AMEX card for grocery, dining or food delivery purchases.

American Express has recently launched new welcome offers for 7 cards.

Among these offers, one common denominator: between 5 and 10 times the points for grocery, restaurant, bar, and food delivery purchases.

These spending category offers are available to new cardmembers(for 6 months from the date of application) and existing cardmembers through the online promotional offers(from June 23rd to September 23rd, 2021).

I usually recommend using the American Express Cobalt™ Card, which offers 5 points per dollar on grocery, restaurant, bar and food delivery purchases.

But here, during the summer (or the first 6 months if you take advantage of these new welcome offers), you’ll have to use another card because of those additional points you can earn.

For new American Express Cardmembers, this bonus is part of the welcome offer: you will earn between 5 and 10X the points.

For example, you will earn :

For existing Cardmembers of one of these cards (and who register for the promotional offer in their online account), these are bonus points in addition to the points you would normally earn for purchases charged to your Card.

Thus, for restaurant purchases, you can earn:

This is unheard of for this type of spending.

Most Metro, Super C, Marché Richelieu, Giant Tiger, Safeway, Sobeys, Whole Foods Market, Food Basics, FreshCo, Save-On-Foods, accept American Express. So are more and more IGA grocery stores.

Also, all food delivery services (Uber Eats, SkipTheDishes, Good Food, Cook It, etc.) accept American Express Cards. And this is also the case for many restaurants and bars.

But also other businesses throughout Quebec and Canada.

It’s also a good time to buy gift cards at your favourite grocery store for other stores like SAQ, Amazon, IKEA to earn up to 10 points per dollar! More information in this post.

Would you also like to earn5-10X the points for the next 6 months on your grocery, restaurant, bar and food delivery purchases (or for many other stores via gift cards)?
