In February, American Express decided that it needed to do something to keep some of its co-branded cards front and center in people's wallets while travel remained far from most people's minds. Its solution was to introduce monthly dining and wireless credits for a number of its co-branded cards and today is the last chance you have to use up March's credits if you haven't already done so.
The Platinum Card from American Express comes with a not-insignificant $550 annual fee but for the first six months of 2021, American Express is offering cardholders an easy-to-use PayPal credit to help them recoup some of that annual fee. This is your monthly reminder to make sure you use up that monthly credit before it's too late.
f you run a small business and you travel with any kind of frequency (outside of pandemics!), the Business Platinum Card from American Express is probably a card that you've heard about and considered so, as I haven't really discussed this card in any detail before, I thought I'd take a look at what it has to offer.
Earlier this month American Express started targeting more cardholders for a promotion in which it offers bonus points in exchange for a cardholder signing up for its Pay Over Time Option. Now, even more cardholders are being targeted and some are seeing their original bonus offers improved considerably.
In this post, I'm going to go over the benefits that the Amex Platinum Card offers to a primary cardholder and I'll show just how many of those benefits can be used by any of the authorized users that a cardholder chooses to add. Considering that up to three authorized users can be added for a total of $175, some may be surprised just how much the Platinum Card actually offers.
American Express has boosted the welcome offer on the Marriott Bonvoy Business American Express Card so the card is now offering successful new applicants the opportunity to earn 100,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points as well as a $150 statement credit which would effectively offset the card's first-year annual fee.
American Express has just updated the welcome bonus that it's offering on the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant Credit Card (review) and not only has Amex increased the number of bonus points that the card is offering, but it's also added in a very easy statement credit to earn.
The Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant American Express Card is the top Marriott credit card on the market and it offers a variety of excellent benefits in return for a $450 annual fee. To some, that annual fee may sound a little high, but if you’re someone who stays with Marriott more than once or twice a year, this card's benefits can easily make that fee more than worthwhile.
I'm on the record as saying that I think that the Platinum Card from American Express is the only 'must-have' premium card for most frequent travelers so as that comment was made over a year ago, I thought that I'd take a closer look at what the card offers travelers and Membership Rewards fans in 2021.
American Express is back with another set of offers targeted at cardholders who have yet to sign up for its Pay Over Time option. As far as I can tell there are at least two different offers in the wild (one for 10,000 and one for 20,000 points) and as even I've been targeted for an offer this time around, it looks as if the targeting may be quite broad.
