I can certainly attest to the generous statement credits...
I carry the Zync and signed up for the restaurant pack, bringing my total annual fee to $50/ year. With that particular pack, you are supposed to receive (3) gift cards- (1) $5 Dunkin Donuts, (1) $5 Cold Stone Creamery, and (1) $5 ...can't remember the name of it...
For those who were following one of my earlier posts, I didn't receive the original Zync card/welcome package in the mail- probably got lost somewhere. I called them to rush a new card, but I assume those gift cards were with the original card/package.
Recently, I contacted the AskAmex team via Twitter about the issue, and within hours they had credited my account with a $25 statement credit, along with 25 reward points. That in itself pays for the restaurant pack's annual fee!
I honestly forgot I was supposed to receive small gift cards to the above establishments up until recently, so I think it's a great deal for me.
On the other side, I've also been using Chase's Freedom card for the 5% cashback in restaurants this quarter, so the Amex hasn't been in use regarding dining/etc. (5% cashback vs. 2x's MRE points...)
