The Business Platinum Card® from American Express (and possibly some accountholders of the $295 annual fee American Express® Business Gold Card - Rates & Fees) can earn 5X Membership Rewards in the following categories:

  • Shipping — Earn an additional 4X Membership Rewards points (in addition to the standard 1X), per eligible dollar spent, up to 80,000 bonus points. Plus, there's an offer to get 10% back on FedEx Freight and FedEx Office, up to $1,000 cash back.

  • Advertising — Earn +4 Membership Rewards per eligible dollar spent, up to 80,000 bonus points.

Cardmembers can earn up to 80,000 bonus Membership Rewards per category. That means you'll earn a total of 5X points on purchases in these categories on up to $20,000 in purchases in each of these five categories. Thankfully, it's not a grand total of 80,000 Membership Rewards in all categories combined.

Business Platinum Card members who have downgraded their card to a Business Amex Gold are reporting seeing these offers. However, the terms clearly state they are for business Platinum members.

In addition, some cardmembers of The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express are reporting getting an offer to get a $25 statement credit for spending $500 on your enrolled card. This reward can be earned up to 10 times for a total of $250 in savings. So far we have seen reports for this offer on other Amex business cards.

Who Doesn't Qualify for These New Amex Offers

If you don't see these offers in your account, unfortunately, there isn't much you can do. The offer states that:

Offer to enroll is only available to U.S.- issued American Express Cards who are Basic Card Members or Additional Card Members prior to November 1, 2020.

So, any card opened after November 1, 2020, is excluded. Although this is a bummer, many of these cardmembers received an elevated welcome offer which included earning 10X points on eligible purchases on their new Card at U.S. Gas Stations and U.S. Supermarkets, on up to $15,000 in combined purchases, during their first 6 months of Card Membership.

Stacking Offers

Amex recently announced a monthly $30 PayPal statement credit (through June 30, 2021) on personal Amex Platinum cards. And there's no reason why this offer shouldn't stack with these new Amex Offers. Don't forget to stack even more by first using a shopping portal.

You should also be able to use the entirety of the offer in one purchase. For example, make a purchase online at HomeDepot or Best Buy and pay through PayPal to potentially earn both the $30 PayPal statement credit and $50 Amex Offer — as long as the total meets both thresholds of the offer.

Finally, be aware that Amex specifically states rebates from these offers may not post until after 6/30/2021. This is the standard language American Express always uses. So, hopefully, the credits will post as usual — which is normally within a few days from the date the charge posts to your account.

Final Thoughts

Amex Offers are an incredible way to save lots of money and this set of new offers are some of the best we have seen in a while. I would even argue that if you can utilize them, these alone more than makeup for some of the hefty annual fees that come with premium Amex cards.

Personally, I got none of these awesome Amex Offers. But, I do have a plethora of cosmetic offers — which makes me wonder if Amex is trying to tell me something.

What about you? Did you get any of these offers?

    Never had an AMEX card before. Considered it, though. How would you compare these offers to the Chase Sapphire?

  • Avatar

    Thanks for the information. My question when first seeing the offers, especially those for Bestbuy.com and Homedepot.com was whether one could also shop through a portal for additional savings. The other thing I noticed, is both companies offer free pick up, after ordering online. As home delivery is always an issue, it seems to be a win/win for me!

  • Avatar

    Wow! I would totally take advantage of Best Buy or Home Depot. None of my Amex’s have anything good though. 🙁

    Great offers for the cardholders. AMEX should expand its coverage outside the US though. It is hardly usable abroad as merchant fees are higher than other issuers.

  • Avatar

    Too bad the Platinum Amex has such a high annual fee.

    • Avatar

      Sure, but the offers they’ve put forth this year have more than covered the annual fee for me. I’ve saved quite a bit of money in offers alone even accounting for the $550 – let alone MR points

  • Avatar

    Wow these all look great. Thanks for the info

  • Avatar

    Unfortunately, American Express cardholders in the Great White North have been getting an order of magnitude less offers.
    Makes me redirect my spending to Visa and mostly Mastercard.

  • Avatar

    Even my no-annual fee Blue Business Cash Card is offering $25 back after $500 spend.

  • Avatar

    Amex has some of the best promos for those that shop on the ones they offer. I just wish one does not need to register.

  • Avatar

    For many cardholders, these offers more than cover their AMEX annual fees.

  • Avatar

    Just a note, if I’m not mistaken the Home Chef offer is single use (unless they’ve modified it since adding it to my card)

    • Avatar

      Interesting! I’m seeing this on my Amex Platinum:
      Spend $50 or more, get $50 back. Up to 3 times (total of $150).

    I think the threats to the fragile economic health are long-term, real and imminent. That’s why the promotions keep coming.

  • Avatar

    Why is amex seeming to far outpace chase with offers. Thinking about making a switch in loyalty.

  • Avatar

    Great. This is an amazing offer on a no-fee card as it is $250 back per card on $5,000 spend, or 5% back on all spend. Amex the best credit card.

  • Avatar

    Love the amex offers but have to make sure I am not over 100 so I can see the new ones

    • Avatar

      Yep! I’d recommend searching the entire list for “expires in” and adding the ones that will expire the soonest. That way you won’t have them cuttering up the list for long.

  • Avatar

    I got all the offers mentioned in the article for the Business Platinum and Blue Business Cards. It will certainly change the cards I use for category spend. I don’t think that my Business Platinum has ever been used so much as it will be in the next few months. As for many, it’s my benefits card while my Blue Business is the spend card.
