Carrabba’s Amex Offer & Gift Card Deal

One of the best thing about Mother’s Day is it starts the Mom/Dad/Grad gift card discount season. Carrabba’s is getting into the game with a great deal just in time for Mother’s Day.

The Deal

Visit your local Carrabba’s between May 12 – May 14 and when you buy $50 in gift cards you’ll get $50 in free bonus cards.

Key Terms

  • These are promotional cards. THESE ARE NOT GIFT CARDS.
  • Bonus cards are not redeemable at time of qualified gift card purchase.
  • Valid upon future visits.
  • Date restrictions apply, see each card for full details.
  • Each purchase of $50 or more in gift cards will result in (5) $10 bonus cards with valid dates that vary.
  • Bonus card may not be used for alcohol, tax, gratuity or gift card purchases.
  • Not valid with any other offer, discount, or certificate including any Dine Rewards redemption and Family Bundles. 

You can find the full terms here.


Each of the $10 bonus cards will have its own valid dates, so it will require separate trips to fully redeem them. Remember that Carrabba’s cards are also valid at Outback, Bonefish Grill and Fleming’s, although it isn’t clear if the bonus cards will be locked to just Carrabba’s. (In the past bonus cards could be used across all brands.)

Combine with Amex Offer to Save 40% More

Some people have a targeted Amex Offer giving $10 or 10,000 Membership Rewards points back on a $25 purchase. Splitting a $50 gift card purchase across two targeted cards will result in you getting a $20 credit or 20,000 points, plus the 5 X $10 bonus cards. If you don’t want to use the actual gift cards, you could sell them for about 75% of face value and keep the bonus cards while offsetting your costs with the Amex Offer.

I personally value Amex Membership Rewards conservatively at 1.5 cents each. That means on a $50 purchase, I will be earning $30 worth of points. Pretty good.

This is a very good deal in my opinion if you have a Carrabba’s nearby. I have the Amex Offer on about 10 cards so I am definitely considering a quick trip to Carrabba’s!

  1. no Carrabba in CA man! cmon! its about time. not only that, its only with Carrabba. dude. it should be with the entire brand family. this deal is crazy talk. Buy $50 Get $50 + Amex Offer!? i really like their food too. its just a shame this deal is specifically for Carrabba. I guess im going to vegas then. see you there shawn! i owe you lunch and dinner and a few drinks!

    Also you guys know this is part of Bloomin’ Brands right? meaning they have a rewards program. Every 4th visit, you get 50% off up to $20 to $40 max. so it kinda sux. not crazy scale or anything, BUT you have to make multiple trips to max out the $10 right? mite as well then.

  2. So, it’s a “FLASH GIFT CARD SALE” but yet it does not start for another week??? Marketing FAIL!

    Can’t wait to see how spread out the five other $10 bonus cards are spread out over time.

    Thanks for the posting

      • Ed,
        The reason I attached the word FAIL to my comment was due to the fact that this “FLASH” sale does not start for another week from now.

        Personally, I think the Carrabba’s marketing folks went a little far in their use of wording on this to hype it above the actual meaning of the word FLASH.

        Ex. If their is a gathering next weekend, would the newspaper writer use the headline term,”FLASH Mob next weekend at the park”?
        No…but if a hundreds of teenagers in Baltimore showed up at a 7-11 all at once & robbed the place, that would be written as a “FLASH Mob” in a headline.

        No biggie…just wanted to point that out…sorta similar to the term “breaking news” flashed on the screen with every other news story on TV.

        …and with that, this point of conversation has “Jumped The Shark”!!

        …can’t wait to get details on how spaced out the time periods are on the five $10 cards.

  3. Great deal, but AMEX points offer is for 1,000 not 10,000. Think this is a typo as your point valuation is accurate based off 1,000 points.
