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.
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:
- Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card: $20 monthly dining credit
- Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card: $20 monthly dining credit
- Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card: $20 monthly dining credit
- Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card: $15 monthly dining credit
- Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card: $10 monthly dining credit
- Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card: $10 monthly dining credit
- Hilton Honors American Express Card: $5 monthly dining credit
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:
- Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card: $20 monthly wireless credit
- Delta SkyMiles® Platinum Business American Express Card: $15 monthly wireless credit
- Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card: $15 monthly wireless credit
- Delta SkyMiles® Gold Business American Express Card: $10 monthly wireless credit
- The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card: $10 monthly wireless credit
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.
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.
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!
