Many of the credit card offers that appear on this site are from credit card companies from which we receive financial compensation. This compensation may impact how and where products appear on this site (including, for example, the order in which they appear). However, the credit card information that we publish has been written and evaluated by experts who know these products inside out. We only recommend products we either use ourselves or endorse. This site does not include all credit card companies or all available credit card offers that are on the market.

Check your Amex Offers because there’s a sweet new offer for cash-back on purchases with Turo.
Let’s take a look at everything you should know.
There are several terms and conditions to be aware of. You must book directly with Turo, and vehicles must be returned and completed by the offer end date of December 9, 2023.
Drivers under the age of 25 may have to pay higher rates. Also note that the offer excludes Community Benefits, previously completed trips, and payments made directly to hosts, and is non-transferable.
You’ll want to check all your American Express cards before enrolling in the offer (if you have a few), as several Upgraded Points staffers saw the offer on cards such as The Platinum Card® from American Express.
If you aren’t familiar, Turo is a peer-to-peer car-sharing marketplace where owners can list personal cars, and other people can rent them. Drivers can choose from an array of vehicles, and it’s not uncommon to find vehicles from luxury brands like Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Tesla.
It shouldn’t be too difficult to meet the terms of this Amex Offer, particularly if you plan to reserve a car for an extended period. For instance, this 2020 Porsche Macan SUV located in New York City rents for $250 for a 2-day period in early November, which easily meets the terms of the offer.
Amex Offers are deals through which you can earn either statement credits or Membership Rewards points for purchases. This is an easy way to earn Amex Membership Rewards points or cash-back on purchases you already have to make.
However, these deals are not automatically loaded to your card; you have to add them manually. Also, keep in mind that many offers are targeted. That means while you may see an offer on one Amex card, you may not see the same offer on another.Hot Tip:
Read all about what it’s actually like to rent a car with Turo!
This is a sweet offer, particularly if you were already thinking about booking a reservation with Turo. If you see a car you like, remember to book it using an Amex Card targeted for the cash-back offer. Just make sure to book and complete your reservation by mid-April of next year!
