American Express Starts 2021 With A Bang

American Express has introducing new offers for U.S. Consumer, Small Business and Cobrand Card Members in the new year. These offers are aimed at cardholders make the most of time spent at home, similar to what we saw last year. But there are also offers for those planning to travel.

U.S. Consumer Platinum Card Members can access up to $1,700 in limited-time offers and discounts for online shopping at some of their favorite merchants, up to $180 in statement credits for PayPal purchases and added value on local travel purchases. There are also offers for Business Platinum and select U.S. Small Business Cards. We already covered some of these yesterday, but there’s more.

Consumer Cards

New offers have been introduced for Consumer Card Members with top online merchants like PayPal, Goldbelly and Instacart, as well as offers on hotel stays, airfare and car rentals through Amex Travel. Some highlights:

  • Consumer Platinum Card Members can access limited-time offers and discounts for online shopping at some of their favorite merchants and up to $180 in statement credits for PayPal purchases.

  • Platinum Card Members and Gold Card Members can receive a complimentary night or property credit of $150 or more when booking an eligible stay through American Express Travel at participating Hotel Collection properties.

  • Platinum card members can receive a complimentary night or property credit of $250 or more at participating Fine Hotels + Resorts properties as well as the ability to save up to 20% off the public fare on select flights when booking through AmexTravel.com.

  • Membership Rewards® enrolled Card Members can now use Pay with Points or earn 2X Membership Rewards points on prepaid car rental bookings through AmexTravel.com.

Business Cards

With many small businesses getting back to business and planning for the road ahead, American Express has launched new offers for Small Business Card Members across key business spending categories. Here are some of these new offerings:

  • Business Platinum Card Members can access up to 400,000 additional Membership Rewards points on purchases made across wireless, shipping, advertising, gas and office supplies.

  • Blue Business Plus Card Members can receive cash back of up to $250 on purchases greater than $500. 

  • Small merchants can also unlock additional value from Sprout Social, BigCommerce and more to help their ecommerce channels grow.

More Offers for Cobrand Cards

In the coming weeks, American Express and its Cobrand partners will also be introducing new limited-time offers for existing Consumer and Business Delta SkyMiles®, Hilton Honors® and Marriott Bonvoy™ Card Members — with more details to come soon.

Conclusion

These are some great offers that surely add value for premium cardholders. Most of these cards are travel oriented, and travel demand is still far from normal. Even with the recent highs in air travel, numbers are almost 60% down compared to a year ago.

Amex Platinum cardholders for example can get $380 in value just from the PayPal, Home Depot and Best Buy offers. That’s well over half of the annual fee. So it can even make sense to apply for the card now, or renew, just because of the added value that you can get now. Business Platinum cardholders also have earning opportunities in popular categories.

Let us know what you think of these new enhancements, and which offers you are most excited about!

    Do you have to sign up for these offers? My husband and I got our Platinum In November and December so weren’t eligible for some of the offers. I don’t remember hearing about this benefit.
    Thanks!

      • I think they’re just referencing the standard offers, I’m seeing a lot of third/fourth night free or $250 credit notices.

        IIRC the airline offer restarts on Jan 10
