American Express just put out a new partnership yesterday where you can earn 2x points by shopping online or via the phone at all Pottery Barn brands. This includes Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, PB Teen. This one deviates from the norm slightly as it is giving you extra points instead of a statement credit for spending a certain amount of money at a participating merchant. Personally, I’d prefer the statement credit, but extra points is definitely better then nothing!
This promotion actually runs for awhile! While you must enroll by March 31, 2015, you have until July 31, 2015 to earn the double points. Unfortunately though, this might be a targeted offer and you can only enroll the credit card that received the offer.
While earning double points is a great offer at a merchant, I personally would prefer to earn 5x points at Pottery Barn. To do this you purchase Pottery Barn gift cards at an office supply store (i.e., Staples) with your Chase Ink credit card and then use the gift card to purchase the items. The only downside to this is you are not protected by American Express’s warranty, but Pottery Barn has pretty good customer service I’ve found so you can most likely rely on them if something goes wrong with your purchase. You can learn more about purchasing gift cards at office supply stores with your Chase Ink cards here. I’d take 5x Chase Ultimate Reward points any day over 2x American Express Membership Reward points. And a quick reminder that you can use Pottery Barn gift cards at Pottery Barn Kids, PB Teen, William-Sonoma, and west elm.
