You're willing to pay $30 more locally but just want $5 off a $250 purchase if you paid with cash?
Did you also attempt to haggle a near price match too? Did you ended up paying with cash or AmEx. I'd go with the later for the points or miles.
Isn't AmEx's better buyer's protection partly why their transaction fee the highest?
