AMEX 10x Dining Referral Ends Tomorrow 05/22

AMEX’s 10x dining referral offer is slated to end tomorrow, 05/22. If you have a way to complete the spend, this is an insanely lucrative offer to jump on (in bulk, if possible).

It’s so lucrative that people pay $500 - $1,000 per successful referral.

I have good news if you’ve been living under a rock and need time to grasp this offer fully.

Historically, referral links generated before offer deadlines still attached the original referrer offer on cards that were approved after the offer deadline.

Keep your eyes peeled for supporting DPs and confirm with AMEX chat before going all-in on the spend.

Citi AAdvantage Executive 100k SUB Ending

Offer details:

This is one of the largest publicly available Citi bonuses you can get. The SUB makes it worth getting for at least the first year, but you’ll have to evaluate your usage of perks for everything beyond that.

The offer expires on 07/11 so make sure you plan ahead.

Offer details:

This is one of the highest offers for this card but you do need a Morgan Stanley account to apply. If you have one, now may be a great time to try to apply (even if you’ve had other Platinums).

Worst case, you get a pop-up telling you you’re not eligible, at which point you abort with no repercussions.

Bonuses are as follows:

You can see a side-by-side comparison of the 2 cards here. Not much to look at honestly. If you’re getting any of the Cardless ones, Qatar is more interesting.

Insane St. Regis Bora Bora Value - $10,000+ Redemption

French Polynesia is one of those dream destinations you’ve probably convinced yourselves is too fancy for you and too difficult to get to.

Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong. It’s only too fancy for you.

I’m joking. Not only is it accessible (award flights), but there’s a shocking amount of availability, especially the further out you search.

Stay in the largest overwater villas in French Polynesia and the South Pacific, starting at 1,550 square feet, and revel in the turquoise blue waters visible from the glass panel floors. For ultimate privacy, reserve a secluded beach villa surrounded by palm trees. No request will be too small or unattainable for our Butlers, the Signature St. Regis service available 24-hours a day. Sail around Bora Bora’s azure waters, or dive under to meet black tip reef sharks and rays up close. After your island adventure, swim in our Lagoonarium, work out in the fitness center or unwind with a spa treatment. Order a cocktail at the swim-up bar, or sample international and Polynesian-inspired cuisine at our four restaurants. Our luxury resort offers an awe-inspiring backdrop for destination weddings, honeymoons and company retreats in Bora Bora.

May 2025

April 2025

August 2024

May calendar pricing is funky, but other months look correct. Once you reach the checkout flow, you’ll see the true point prices for the May 2025 dates:

Marriott members get 5th night free, and there’s a Chase 40% transfer bonus until 06/15.

You’ll only need…394,285.714 Chase points if you’re transferring.

It was late and I couldn’t figure out how to show this in USD

Cash rates for those dates are about $2k/night. In a worst-case scenario, you’ve redeemed your Chase points at ~2.54 cents per point for… $10,197.16.

Not too shabby. But of course, the memories are what matters, right? Right?
