[American Express] AMEX Personal Bonvoy - Earn 5 points for every $1 you spend on eligible groceries and food delivery

Got this email today for elevated earn rate on the AMEX Personal Marriott Bonvoy card. 3 additional pts/$ spent at groceries and food delivery up to 30k pts (or $10k). Awesome deal considering the bonvoy pts have lower use in the near term but are super useful later on!

Hi... Gerbilz,

With travel on pause and every day expenses adding up, we understand that the way you use your Card may have changed, and we want to help you get the most value out of your Membership in the areas that matter most right now.

That’s why we’re introducing a limited time offer so that you
can continue to experience the value of your Marriott Bonvoy™
American Express® Card during this time.

YOU CAN NOW EARN
5 MARRIOTT BONVOY™ POINTS FOR EVERY $1 IN ELIGIBLE PURCHASES ON GROCERIES, FOOD DELIVERY AND TAKEOUT.¹

From May 15, 2020 to August 31, 2020.

items

That’s an additional 3 points per $1, up to a maximum
30,000 bonus points.


And remember, you still earn the following on your Card:

5 points for every $1 in eligible Card purchases at Marriott Bonvoy properties²
2 points for every $1 in all other Card purchases²
My life has become a cycle of figuring out what deals to return and what to keep.
AMEX Platinum, Bonvoy, Gold. Just Ask.

1. you don't have a cobalt
2. you maxed out your cobalt 5x spend.

I don't have Cobalt so I was excited about this offer.
Then I realized, my Uber account is full of credits and my grocery stores (RCSS & Costco) don't accept AMEX.

So, neat promo but I won't be able to participate because of AMEX's lack of acceptance across the Loblaws banner stores.

Use it at Walmart then. Cheapest place to buy groceries especially they do not throw tantrums while price matching like other Canadian stores..

Amex doesn't count Walmart as a grocery store unfortunately

1. No, just regular gcr.
2. No, but you can however move personal Mr to Bonvoy but not the other way around.

You can buy Sobeys GCs, then use those GCs at Freshco.
