The Amex Gold Card has offered a mild shake-up of its annual dining credits today. While the card’s monthly $10 Uber credit has not changed, the separate $10 monthly dining credit picks up a couple of new options and loses two former options starting today.
- The Amex Gold card has long featured a monthly dining credit of up to $10 that can be used at Grubhub, The Cheesecake Factory, and select Shake Shack locations. Starting today, the following changes have been made to other partners for this credit:
- New options: Wine.com, Milk Bar, Goldbelly
- No longer available: Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Boxed.com
This change probably works out well for many people. I’ve always thought that Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse was a weird option — I just don’t see a $10 credit driving business in either direction there. Truthfully, I rarely use this $10 monthly benefit, but I’m disappointed to trade the option of Boxed.com to pick up household supplies in exchange for gaining Wine.com, Milk Bar, and Goldbelly. Last Bottle Wines marathon sales have led me to order more wine than I’ll drink ay time soon and I’m pretty sure I’ve never even walked past a Milk Bar. I have used Goldbelly to order a gift now and then, so maybe the $10 credit will get a couple of uses that way. I suspect that others will be more excited about Wine.com and Milk Bar than I am.
