I just saw this pop up on my amex offers. It is, unfortunately, only valid in restaurant.

However, it does not appear to exclude gift cards. So maybe buying a $50 gift card in the restaurant will trigger this? Data points welcome!

Enjoy!

DETAILS
Get a one-time $15 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $50 or more in-restaurant at Olive Garden by 12/31/2019. See terms for exclusions.

OFFER TERMS
Enrollment limited. Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. Only U.S. issued American Express® Cards are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Offer valid in-restaurant only at any participating location in the US and US Territories. Not valid on online purchases. Offer is non-transferable. Limit of 1 statement credit per Card Member. The enrolled Card account must not be cancelled or past due to receive statement credit. Any benefit earned from this offer is in addition to the rewards (i.e. Membership Rewards or cash back) earned as part of your existing Card benefits, but your ability to earn spend-based rewards for the purchase will be based on the amount after any statement credit or other discount is applied. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 12/31/2019, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from merchant until all items from your qualifying purchase have been provided/shipped by merchant. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer.

Predictable that half the posts are from snobs complaining about the food. Thank you for letting the rest of us know how complex your palate is while you scoff at the peasants. We bow before your luster; if only our plebeian sensibilities could achieve the greatness of your prandial magnificence.

Why even click on the thread if you don't like the establishment? For what it's worth, you can use the gift cards at Seasons 52, Longhorn, Yard House, and Bahama Breeze to name a few.

Wrong. All Darden gift cards including the restaurant specific branded ones are good at all Darden restaurants. My wife actually works at the OG and we buy as many (25% exployee discounted) cards that we can every year and then use them at OG, Longhorn, Cheddars, etc. (I so miss using them at Red Lobster).

Bonus Bucks appear to be OG only although we've never tried.

yes, I always use for gift cards. For buying $50 GC, you will get $10 bonus bucks to use it later.

Yes, can confirm that buying gift cards do trigger the cash back, but my olive store didn't give me $10 bonus, even they had an online $10 bonus promotion. When asking was told that it's online only promo. So YMMV. Last time , they had unlimited pasta, bread and soup or salad promo, you had to pay extra for the toppings. not very impressed.

$10 bonus is definitely available in restaurant. I already purchased 2 times, and I got bonus card too.

If you buy Olive Garden gift cards in restaurant, are they valid at the other Darden restaurants?

TU since I'll try it with a gift card in the next few days. Since they built a cheddar's next to olive garden five years ago, I can't remember the last time I went in OG and sure can't imagine spending $50 for two people there so the gift card makes this viable.......

stopped by olive garden this evening. Purchasing the $50 gift card + $10 free promo card triggered the amex offer. promo card is valid for dine-in only between 1/2 and 2/9.
