Didn't want to create a new thread for this...

Did everyone remember to get their dining on with CSP on Friday for the extra points?

I didn't know about the extra points until now, but luckily I spent some $$ at a restaurant last night.
In my wallet:
AmEx PRG/ BoH Hawaiian Airlines WEMC / Chase Freedom /

In my sock drawer:
AmEx HHonors & BCE

Totally spent $65 on dinner Friday. If it wasn't for the 3x point promo I'd probably spend the same amount, but a bit more reluctantly.

Main Card: Amex Platinum
For gas: Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards
For travel & dining: Chase Sapphire Preferred

Maybe it's just me, but I would never spend anything that I wasn't going to anyway just to get an extra rewards amount. So say it's an extra 1% and you drop 50 dollars, you get an extra 50 cents in rewards, I can't see how that's an incentive to spend money if you weren't going to anyway? If you were, great, of course.

I would never suggest living above your means or spend money where you don't need to, just curious if people who went out for food on Friday used their CSP to get the extra points. So yeah, maybe it is just you.

Got my card Friday and when I activated it, the csr told me about this offer. Needless to say, we went out for dinner that night.

It's never just one person on any topic.
