In addition to the MGM Resorts Amex Offer, there’s a new Living Social Amex Offer. This could be a better deal than you might think – here’s why.
- Spend $25+ at Living Social by February 25, 2018 and get $5 / 500 Membership Rewards.
- $25+ can be spent in one or more transactions
- Can be used online at LivingSocial.com or on the Living Social app.
When I saw this Amex Offer on my accounts, I was initially dismissive. The last time I checked out Living Social was a year or two ago and the place was a wasteland. There were about half a dozen local deals and that was it.
We’re currently visiting Myrtle Beach SC, so I had a look on Living Social to see if there were any deals and was surprised to see a ton of them. Even more surprising was the fact that they had exactly the same deals as Groupon and even seemed to have the same layout.
What I’d forgotten was that Groupon bought Living Social in 2016. It therefore looks like all the offers you can find on Groupon are now on Living Social and vice versa. The $5 statement credit (or 500 Membership Rewards) can therefore be a 20% discount on a wide range of already discounted activities.
Don’t forget to go through a cashback or miles portal. There’s currently a higher rate through several airline portals – 9 miles with American Airlines, 8 miles with United, 6 miles with Alaska, etc. If you’re a new Living Social customer, you might prefer to use a site like Top Cashback that’s offering 15%.
