Great news for American Express cardmembers just keeps on coming. In January, Amex's Platinum-branded cards received a slew of new Amex Offers—including Home Depot, Best Buy, and around a dozen others. This week, Amex introduced a batch of monthly statement credits for many of its personal and business co-branded credit cards.

It's a big list, so make sure to have your label makers ready. And if you don't know what I mean, check out this awesome organization tip shared in our online Facebook community Award Travel 101.

Which Cards Qualify for these New Amex Monthly Credits

For the remainder of 2021, many of Amex's co-branded cards will get a monthly statement credit for dining or wireless services. Personal American Express Marriott, Delta, and Hilton cards will receive the dining credits. Business Marriott, Delta, and Hilton American Express cards are eligible for the wireless credits.

Note that you must register for these offers. These offers are added to each card as Amex Offers.

Monthly Dining Credits on Amex Personal Cards

When you use your eligible and enrolled card at US restaurants, whether dine-in, takeout, or delivery, you will receive a monthly statement credit through December 31, 2021 on the following cards:

Amex Offer dining monthly statement credit on Hilton Aspire

Monthly Wireless Credit on Amex Business Cards

Eligible business cardholders can earn a monthly credit with U.S. wireless telephone services with the following cards:

Amex Offer wireless monthly statement credit on Bonvoy Business

Do You Qualify for These New Amex Offers?

According to American Express, only cards opened before January 1, 2021 will qualify for these new monthly statement credits.

To check and see if you do qualify, log into your American Express account and navigate your way to the Amex Offers list. If the promotion is listed under the offers section, you qualify. Make sure to hit the “Add to Card” button.

Side note to Verizon customers: Verizon qualifies as a wireless service for these statement credit, but paying your monthly bill with a debit card gives a monthly discount. This is typically more lucrative than the Amex Offers credits. Reports are also saying that partial payments make the debit card discount disappear. So, this offer is unfortunately not great for those using Verizon.

Stacking Offers

American Express has been killing it with money-saving opportunities lately. At the beginning of 2021, Amex announced that The Platinum Card® from American Express will receive a monthly $30 PayPal statement credit through June 30, 2021.

Another deluge of amazing Amex offers for both the Amex Platinum and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express cardholders—as well as the The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express—were released a few weeks ago. So, don't forget to check and see if you are eligible for these as well.

And to really sweeten the stack, don't forget to first go through a shopping portal. While not necessarily helpful for the wireless credit, lots of restaurants allow online ordering and many participate in dining programs as well.

Final Thoughts

Personally, I love seeing Amex adjusting cardmember benefits to suit their customer's needs as well as help stimulate the restaurant industry, which has been hit particularly hard by the pandemic. Although, with all these food credits and consequently expanding waistline, hopefully, a Weight Watchers or gym credit will be next on the list!

    Got $20.00 from my AMEX Asphire and $10.00 from my Bonvoy Business. 🙂

    Wow, this is actually a useful credit! Some cards have been adding obscure credits I won’t use!

      Agreed. Not to point fingers at anyone… Chase. What does a Peloton credit do for a travel card?? Speaking of, I need to call and cancel. My AF just posted.

        I won’t be using it, but one could defend the Peloton credit, by referencing the pandemic and all the working out now taking place at home. In fact, Peloton is so popular now, I believe they’re actually somewhat hard to get, with big order delays.

    Hilton and Marriott also have bonus point offers for threshold spends.

    Got $20/month for my Hilton Aspire card. Truly great benefit. Kudos to Amex!

    • Avatar

      I’m legitimately surprised; free cards giving $55 and the Aspire giving $220 when you can already get $500 in credits on a $450 card.

    Love the windfall from Amex with these dining credits. Easy money!

    In for the $5 per month dining credit on our no annual fee Hilon Amex.

    These are great. Each of my Amex cards has a long list of attractive offers.

    I like that they are doing something for the personal cards. I have seen this on my Surpass card. Now I am going to check my other Hilton Amex card. I haven’t been using my Amex card and this can get me to use them. I wonder how many who haven’t been using their card will use them now because of this promo. If I had the Plat Amex with the annual fee I would be using it anyway to make it worth it.

    Rebates that come with the no-fee cards are serious member benefits indeed.

    Interesting partnership from Amex!

    While I will take advantage of the dinning offers on the Amex Delta and Amex Hilton
    it is too bad that the Cell offer ONLY applies to Amex BUSINESS cards, that
    with my status as retired I do not have. Do appreciate what I am getting thou.

    I really believe that the pandemic will discourage many causal long-haul travels from making similar trips in many years to come. Many people in reality are not into long-haul travels; they much prefer splashing money on daily indulgences at home and nearby instead.

    I got all the offers mentioned on my various Amex cards. I was actually most impressed by the 5 dollar per month credit on my no-annual fee Hilton card. (Usually a sock drawer card.) Now it will actually give me a small amount of free food every month! The other offers serve nicely to offset the annual fees but on a card without one, this is a first for me.

    Already used my $5 credit on my free Hilton card and my wife has the Aspire so we’ll do that too. And to think we were going to cancel her card too except I forgot all about it and renewed. I do need to downgrade my CSR right now though as my AF just hit a couple days ago.

    Why wont chase add something useful like this aside from Peloton credits which i’m not using!

    No credit for the legacy SPG card? That’s a bummer.

    I wish the Uber credit worked like the dining credit but unfortunately it is pre-loaded into my uber account. I don’t use Uber much at all, would rather my daughter be able to use it with my credit card.
