How to use
Did a random check on a few cities and several stores in malls like Inorbit (Hyd), Phoenix Marketcity (Pune) etc. show up. Several popular (Irani Cafe Pune) and chain restaurants (Dominos etc.) too.

Also there are Reliance Digital Stores. Multiple stores in each city. I am not sure if Reliance has gift cards and if so best value would be

Number of cards x 5 Reliance stores x Rs 1000 / gift card. With 2 addon cards you get 15k worth of goods for 7.5k.

The Card should be used on Amex machine only right?

Also does this mean 5 times we need to shop from 5 different stores?

all shopkeepers  will deny amex so can we get manual cb like last time?

Should be doable. But better take word from customer care.

From my understanding, shopkeepers themselves enroll when amex goes to them with offer/marketing details. But the ground staff may be ill informed to say straight No when a customer utters amex

update:

What should I do a participating store is not accepting American Express card or the machine that they have for AMEX is not working?

shops who are in this list also don’t accept amex saying that the commission % of amex is high.
They say amex charges 4% commission on transaction.

Amex does manual cb adjustment? I am guessing its only for merchants listed, and not for unlisted merchants

Yes it earlier did, but now this term is included to avoid having customers calling them. And yes this adjustment is only for those transactions done at listed merchants.

Last time it was valid for both Primary & Supplementary cards, this time also no such thing is mentioned for exclusion so it should work.
I am able to save offer in both cards, so it should be ok.

Yes Supplementary cards are also eligible, Offer should be saved seperately on supplementary cards.

If your Primary Card is eligible for the Offer, your Supplementary Cards will also be eligible. However, Supplementary Cards will be treated as separate Cards in the Offer and the Offer will have to be saved to Supplementary Cards separately through the Online Card Account of Supplementary Cards. You can also save the Offer to your Card by filling up the enrollment form.
