This is a reminder that today is the last day for NYC Restaurant Week. Remember, you can get $5 off by syncing and using your American Express card!
You can get a 3-course meal for $25.00 during lunch or $38.00 during dinner. Saturdays are excluded and not all restaurants participate on Sundays. You can check out all the participating restaurants here. I personally think restaurant week can still be sorta expensive, but if there is some fancy schmancy restaurant you’ve been dying to try out, this is a way to definitely spend less.
By using your American Express credit card, however, you can dine for slightly less – $5 less to be exact. By registering your American Express credit card prior to eating out, you will get a $5 statement credit with a $25+ purchase at participating NYC restaurants (those that participate in Restaurant Week). You will actually get a $5 statement credit every time you eat at one of these restaurants between July 22 and August 16, this is not a one time offer.
The good thing is that you don’t have to order off the Restaurant Week menu – having a $25+ transaction will simply generate the statement credit. This should also work for purchasing gift cards at the restaurant, so you can purchase a certificate now for eating out another time.
The terms also state you can only register one Amex card for this card, but if you are dinning out with a significant other or friend who has an Amex card, make sure to do multiple transactions so you maximize the $5 credit and each put a minimum of $25 on your credit card. For now though, you might as well attempt to register multiple cards and then do $25 transactions at the restaurant to see if you can get the $5 credit on each registered card. Since dinner is $38, chances are with a drink, tip, and tax you’ll hit the $50 mark per person so make split up the check among multiple cards.
