American Express has indicated that cardholder accounts are being updated to include hundreds of new targeted offers that have been designed to fit in with the current climate. We've been told to expect to see more offers relating to wellness, food delivery/takeout, and home essentials (amongst other things) and the appearance of a new targeted offer for spending at Amazon may be the signal that these offers are now starting to appear.
We've been hearing quite a bit from various airlines and hoteliers detailing what measures they're taking to help out their guests but we have been hearing comparatively little from the credit card industry. Up until now, the only really major announcement we've had has been from American Express when it revealed that it has increased the period given to cardholders in which they can earn the welcome bonuses that their credit cards offer. The other major credit card companies have been mostly silent.
Right now there's a very nice opportunity to earn a significant number of Amex Membership Rewards points for purchases made with GoPro (or a good amount of cash back), and if you stack the offer with one of the portals the rewards can be surprisingly good.
With a lot of the world currently being asked to stay at home and with many businesses temporarily shut down, people's spending has dropped significantly over recent weeks and anyone who has recently received a new credit card is almost certainly finding it tougher to meet the spending criteria for their welcome bonus. For these people, Amex has a plan.
The enhanced welcome bonuses that American Express is currently offering on the full range of Delta SkyMiles co-branded credit cards expire on 1 April 2020 but for frequent Delta flyers, there's really only one personal Delta card that should be in their wallet - the Delta SkyMiles Reserve American Express card.

To get the most out of a miles/points balance takes work and often quite a bit of effort and people with busy lives and families to look after generally don't have the time or energy to deal with all of that. This a big reason why cashback credit cards are so incredibly popular and why the Blue Cash Preferred Card is a card that would work well in most wallets.
A new Amex offer has recently dropped into my account which may be of interest to anyone shopping for some new luggage - there are up to 10,000 bonus Membership Rewards Points on offer for shopping made at Tumi stores throughout the US and at Tumi.com.
There's aren't many credit cards that I consider to be "must-have" cards for any serious miles and points fan but the Blue Business Plus Credit Card from American Express is one of them. This card comes with no annual fee and is one of the more rewarding cards you'll find for spending in non-bonused categories.
The long wait for a Centurion Lounge is finally over for those of us who pass through LAX on a frequent basis as Amex has now revealed that its Los Angeles Centurion lounge will open on Monday 9 March 2020.
