LA has a ton of great restaurants to choose from, but when Amex Offers targets establishments with statement credits, my interest piques. This time around, Amex has targeted hotspot Fig & Olive ( which hosts a bevy of Golden Globe/Emmy parties annually ) for a Spend $100 get $20 back deal, and another one which I’ve been interested in trying from Michael Mina: Cal Mare. Cal Mare looks incred and the deal only requires $50 to get $15 back. In fact, Cal Mare just ran an all you can eat and drink pizza, beer, and wine offer for $28 a person. Ummmm…yes, yes, 100x yes.
I write about Amex Offers quite a bit purely because they’ve provided 1000s of bonus points and statement credits for me and my family. I’d go as far as to say that Amex Offers offsets a large part of the $1000+ of annual fees I pay on my Amex cards. What’s even better is my Amex Gold gets 4x on dining – SCORE!
Fig and Olive – Deal valid at all US locations
Cal Mare: Valid in-store Los Angeles
