Over the last few months, American Express has done a lot to keep The Platinum Card® from American Express cardmembers happy, and rightly so. Most of the card's numerous travel benefits and features are currently unusable, making it hard to justify the annual fee.
Amex has responded by making several temporary additions to the card's benefits package—including monthly streaming and mobile-service credits. But, it seems Amex isn't done yet.
The latest addition comes in the form of an Amex Offer. Through January 31, 2021, cardmembers can receive a one-time $100 statement credit after making $100 or more in Dell purchases.
- This offer is available on “vanilla” Amex Platinum cards only (not on co-branded or business variations)
- You must activate this offer in your online American Express account between now and January 31, 2021
- Make at least $100 in purchases (can be multiple transactions) at Dell.com/amexplat or by calling 800-291-3355 to trigger the statement credit
- Offer also applies to authorized users, who can each receive their own $100 credit
- Gift card purchases are not eligible
- Purchases shipped outside of the U.S., Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, or Puerto Rico will not qualify
Amex is essentially gifting cardmembers $100 of free stuff from Dell. That should be valuable to almost everyone.
In case you aren't aware, Dell's online website sells much more than Dell-branded electronics. You can find cameras, drones, software, backpacks, and even gaming consoles. There's something for everyone, so it should be easy to get the full $100 of value.
Further adding to this deal is the fact that it's stackable with other Dell promotions. For instance, some cardmembers have reported also receiving an Amex Offer providing a higher point multiplier for Dell purchases. This allows members to use the new $100 credit while simultaneously earning more Membership Rewards points per dollar.
Additionally, Dell allows shoppers to split purchases between up to three payment methods. Consequently, if you and two authorized users all received this offer, you could combine them for up to $300 in free merchandise.
Combine with the Business Platinum Card Dell Offer
Lastly, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express also offers an annual Dell credit as a regular cardmember benefit—which Amex temporarily doubled in response to COVID-19. This means that cardholders can receive up to $200 in statement credits for Dell purchases made between July 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020.
If you happen to hold both cards and haven't used the Business Platinum Card‘s second $200 in Dell credit yet, combining the two offers would result in a total of $300 in statement credits.
Amex Platinum cardholders can receive a one-time $100 statement credit to offset Dell purchases of at least $100. For most people, this should be worth up to face value. All you need to do is find something you want on Dell's website. Amex is pulling out all of the stops to convince cardholders to hold onto their cards—and we are impressed!
What will you buy with your $100 Dell credit?
