Update: These benefits are no longer available. Please refer to our reviews of The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express, and Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express for the most up-to-date offerings on these products.

Over the last year, American Express has introduced multiple credits to help improve the value proposition for cardholders, especially in a time where not many were able to use the travel benefits of certain cards.

For the most part, many of the credits that were added definitely delivered in terms of providing value great value to cardholders. Unfortunately, many of those credits are expiring at the end of June 2021. So if you haven’t used them already, don’t leave money on the table! Keep in mind that terms may apply and enrollment may be required through your American Express account.
