Reminder: Check “nearby” Amex Offers (you might find a pleasant surprise)

A couple of hours ago, I saw that Doctor of Credit posted about an offer for Lowes Foods (a US Grocery store) — spend $100+, get $10 back — that is valid in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

I’ll admit it: I’m a sucker for status when it comes to hotels. It’s hard to argue with the allure of free, and status gets you a whole lot of that: free points, free upgrades, free breakfast, free lounge access, etc. But yesterday, I posted a deal for an Amex Offer that relies on booking via a 3rd party and forgoing those benefits, which made me wonder: How much are the benefits of booking direct worth? Does the Amex Offer beat…
