Amex Gold Card, Get 35K Welcome Bonus Plus Up to $250 in Restaurant Credits
On the Resy website, there is a new welcome offer for the American Express Gold card. This new offer has the usual public bonus or 35K Membership Rewards bonus, but also a 20% credit on restaurant purchases for the first year, up to $250. There’s also a similar offer for the Amex Platinum Card. Check out the details of the offers below.

PLUS, earn 35,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $4,000 on eligible purchases with your new card within the first 3 months of Card Membership.
Welcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had this Card. We may also consider the number of American Express Cards you have opened and closed as well as other factors in making a decision on your welcome offer eligibility.
If we in our sole discretion determine that you have engaged in abuse, misuse, or gaming in connection with the welcome offer in any way or that you intend to do so (for example, if you applied for one or more cards to obtain a welcome offer (s) that we did not intend for you; if you cancel or downgrade your account within 12 months after acquiring it; or if you cancel or return purchases you made to meet the Threshold Amount), we may not credit the welcome offer to, we may freeze the welcome offer credited to, or we may take away the welcome offer from your account. We may also cancel this Card account and other Card accounts you may have with us.

This new offer adds an additional $250 in credits if you can maximize it by spending $1,250 at restaurants during the first year of card membership. However, you can often do better than the 35K bonus. We often see 50K offers, and if you get that through referrals, it gets much better with the added referral bonus.
