One of my favorite chain restaurants is Carabba’s Italian Grill. This Amex Offer rolls around from time to time and if you maximize it by saving it across all your cards, you can easily get 40% off your dining at Carabbas – at least, depending on other offers.
Great Amex Offer for Dining Returns
Getting the Offer
Log in to your American Express account and scroll down to the bottom. You will see Amex Offers & Benefits. Select and add the offers you want to your card. Make sure you make note of which card you save it to.
To maximize it, add the offer to separate cards, simply login to your American Express account and then choose to duplicate the tab (if using Google Chrome) as many times as you have cards. Once they are all open, select a different Amex card in each tab and select to save the offer to the card.
Make sure you save these offers as soon as you can – using the tip above to maximize – as they are limited enrollment and when they are gone, they are gone! Even if they disappear, as long as you have saved the offer, you are all set.

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 run some 20% discounts 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!
