Last month, I wrote about the Amex Offer for Carabbas (which includes other restaurants in the Carabbas family as well including Bonefish Grill). It is a really good one of $10 back on $25 spend. Well, now there is a way to get even more value from it! Thanks to Valentine on Twitter for the heads up.
An Even Better Deal To Use With The Amex Carabbas Offer
Carabba’s Italian Grill
- Spend $25, get $10 back
- Expires 5/31/2016
- Valid in-store only
- Not valid at airport locations
I know people’s preferences differ greatly when it comes to restaurants and especially when it comes to Italian restaurants, but Carabba’s is my favorite! It is the first restaurant I look for when I am in town for a new marathon. I know independent Italian restaurants can give a better taste, but when I am traveling, especially for a race, I like to choose someplace where I know what the food is going to taste like. Eating a dish with sauce that is too spicy or acidic the night before a marathon can have some nasty effects – I know this!
You cannot use this offer to buy gift cards online, but you can buy them in-store. My (former) local Carabba’s would let you walk in and purchase gift cards at any time, they did not even need to be “open” to let you buy them. So, just save this across all of your cards and buy gift cards in $25 amounts to maximize this and get a straight 40% back on all dining at Carabba’s!
How To Maximize It
They just finished up a 20% discount but these come around quite often. If you hold your gift cards until it comes around again, you will be able to get a significant savings on your dining! Forget the old Chase Sapphire Preferred 3X promo! 🙂
When you combine the 20% discount with the amount you have received the gift cards for, a $50 dinner will have cost you only $20 out of pocket! That is a real steal!
How To Get More Value!
For a limited time, they have a deal where you can get a $10 promo card for every $50 gift card you buy. The $10 promo card is for use after the May 9 – July 15. Here are the details:
- Purchase gift cards between 4/1/16 – 6/19/16
- This is a promotional card. THIS IS NOT A GIFT CARD.
- Bonus card is not redeemable at time of qualified gift card purchase.
- Valid upon next visit 5/9/16 – 7/15/16.
- Bonus card may not be used for alcohol, tax, gratuity or gift card purchases.
- Not valid with any other discount, coupon or offer.
- Limit one (1) card per visit, per table. Bonus card does not carry an unused balance.
- Not redeemable at Kirby or Woodway locations in Houston, TX or Tampa Airport location
Even with the limitations, it is still a nice deal and a way to further your Carabba’s Amex Offer. You can use 2 Amex cards to purchase a $50 gift card. You will receive $20 back on those cards and this $10 card. That is $30 free for a $50 gift card!
Plus, if a 20% comes around again soon, even more savings!
