Another $200 from Mr. Porter

Just months after getting my sweet REVO radio via the $200 off $500 promo via FoundersCard (referral link here), Mr. Porter is offering another $200 off a $300 charge! This via an AmEx offer, you actually get 10,000 points which are transferable to $125 in Schwab Cash that you can take out via ATM. I value them as $200 in flights using the AmEx Plat Business Card 50% MR rebate I have been grandfathered in to.

Too bad I did not wait to combine the offer with the $200 off $500 from FoundersCard. If I had I could of gotten the radio, 3 shirts, hand salve for $132.30 (free shipping)!

I was able to get the latest offer on my MB AmEx Card. No offers showed up for any of my AUs or my other cards. My brother reports that the language is very specific to curtail churning:


Get 10,000 additional Membership Rewards points one-time by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $300+ in one or more eligible transactions online at by 10/18/2017. See terms for exclusions.


ENROLLMENT/ELIGIBLE CARDS: Enrollment limited. Must add offer to Card and use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards that are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of purchase are eligible. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Your enrollment does not extend to any other Cards that may be linked to the same Membership Rewards program account (such as Additional Cards). Offer is non-transferable. ELIGIBLE PURCHASES: Valid only on US website. Valid only on purchases made in US dollars. Valid only on shipments to US, Puerto Rico and USVI. Not valid on shipments to Guam and American Samoa. Excludes NET-A-PORTER. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the additional points. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the additional Membership Rewards points if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party. EARNING POINTS: Limit 1 enrolled Card per American Express Card online account and limit of 10,000 additional Membership Rewards points per Card. These additional points are in addition to any points you would normally receive for purchases on your Card under the terms of your Card Member Agreement and the Membership Rewards program. When we calculate the additional points benefit for Amex EveryDay® Card products, points awarded under this offer will not be included. Additional points will be credited to your Program account within 90 days after 10/18/2017, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Terms and conditions for the Membership Rewards program apply. Visit or call 1-800-AXP EARN (297-3276) for more information. Participating partners and available rewards are subject to change without notice. The value of Membership Rewards points varies according to how you choose to use them. To learn more, go to By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. Bonus ID: B3MF POID: G9CZ:0002

So there was no mention of gift card restrictions, and I have been using Mr. Porter to get little items such as toothpaste and socks elegantly gift wrapped and sent free overnight in signature white boxes.I decided to get a $300 gift card in order to use Mr. Porter to wrap all my Christmas gifts, and because I get free overnight shipping with EIP, I would spilt up orders to have each gift wrapped. With the $300 gift card I can trigger the 10k MR points, and have time to split up the orders for some pretty neat gifts for my family.The $20 shipping fee is then waived thanks to FoundersCard:

Immediately I got the conformation emails:

Then 5 days later the points showed in my account:

Now I can cash the points into Schwab for $125, but insted I will use them to book $200 in flights.
