Just got an email stating AmEx is offering 20% off redemption of Membership Rewards points on select GCs, including Home Depot, CB2, Crate and Barrel, Delta, Land of Nod, and iTunes.

https://online.americanexpress.co...em-woc1182

HD $25 GC: 2,000 points (regularly 2,500 points)
CB2 $50 GC: 4,000 points (regularly 5,000 points)
Crate and Barrel $50 GC: 4,000 points (regularly 5,000 points)
Delta $50 GC: 5,714 points (regularly 7,143 points)
The Land of Nod $50 GC: 4,000 points (regularly 5,000 points)
iTunes $10 GC: 941 points (regularly 1,176 points)

Other denominations available.

Seeing as how redemption valies for AmEx aren't usually great (unless you got in on other offers, like Plenti transfer a few months back), this isn't a bad deal.

Be mindful of some GCs being 'stolen', like HD (which I had a bad experience with roughly 6 months ago, but AmEx was great in resolving it quickly).

edit: Seems this is targeted. Again, might not be the best use of points, but up to the user.

Not seeing any of these amounts when I log into my AmEx account. Is this a targeted promo?

I am not able to get the discounted amounts either. It says "This Membership Rewards program account does not have access to this page."

I am on PRG, maybe avail for Platinum.

I don't think that is a good use of redeeming GC's for points - valuation is garbage.

Well there always people think the best use of MR points is for gift card.

I enjoy using my MR point at 3-10 cent per point not 1 cent per point. Let those sucker waste itlaugh out loud

A word of caution for the Home Depot eGC redeemed using AMEX points, I got 4 HD eGCs several months ago, and I noticed that at least one card, possibly two, had its balance disappeared suddenly. Had to call in to investigate, AMEX was helpful enough to admit one card was used by someone and gave me a refund. However, i suspected another card might had its partial balance drawn to zero like this too, but AMEX said they only spotted one card had suspicious behavior. So guess we need to take this into consideration.

That's a negative. I have the AmEx Gold and Platinum and was not available on either.
