Don’t forget to use American Express Plenti points before July 10, 2018!
Guysss!! If you haven’t heard already, American Express is shutting down their Plenti rewards program. #Sadpanda
So make sure you use your Plenti Points before July 10, 2018!
Umm, American Express Plenti points? What’s that?
Plenti is a rewards program that was created by American Express. When you signup with Plenti, you can earn points at one retailer and use them at another retailer enrolled in the program. It was based on the German Payback loyalty card, also owned by American Express since 2011.
The list of participating retailers has been shrinking every year. In late 2017, American Express Plenti rewards program lost Direct Energy, Hulu, Nationwide, Enterprise, Alamo and Expedia. Macy’s and Chilli’s are leaving May 3rd, 2018.
The remaining ones left are BI-LO, ExxonMobil, Harveys Supermarkets, Rite Aid, and Winn-Dixie.
Why I love American Express Plenti points
I mainly use American Express Plenti points at ExxonMobil. What I love about this is that Plenti always offers points promotions like 7x points on gas purchase. Every 200 points you accumulate, you get $2 off your gas purchase!
Also, I like to maximize my savings with ExxonMobil gift cards. For example. this quarter, if you use Chase Pay app and select Chase Freedom when making your payment at BestBuy, you get 5x Ultimate Rewards points (up to $1500 in purchases). People usually think of electronics when they hear BestBuy. You know what else BestBuy sells? Giftcards! And my local store carries ExxonMobil giftcards!
So I buy a $50 ExxonMobil gift card at BestBuy and get 250 Ultimate Rewards ($50 x 5 = 250 UR points). Then I turn around and use that gift card at ExxonMobil and get American Express Plenti points. Let’s say I used up the entire $50 gift card, and Plenti has that 7x point promo. I will get 350 American Express Plenti points which is $3.50 off my next gas purchase. That’s like double dipping while maximizing your gas purchase!
Sayonara American Express Plenti points
So yeah, I’m totes sad American Express Plenti rewards program is ending. So if you have at least 200 American Express Plenti points, you better use that up before July 10, 2018. Also until then, you can still earn and redeem your American Express Plenti points.
Goodbye Plenti! It’s been nice knowin’ ya! ?
