Amex Adding In $200 Travel Credit for Platinum Cardholders

American Express is doing the very most when it comes to taking care of its cardholders. This is apparent in the way they have been offering both statement credits and even appreciation credits to its cardholders that have a high annual fee. Well, it looks like they are providing even more relief to the personal Platinum cardholders. 

The News

If you do end up traveling sometime between August 2020 and December 31, 2020, you may be eligible for an additional $200 travel credit! The one catch here is that you would have to use 

“Beginning August 2020 through December 31st, 2020, select consumer Platinum cardholders can earn a travel statement credit after they make eligible travel purchases through American Express Travel. The travel credit amount will be for $200.00. Platinum Card Members who renew their Card between April 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020 are eligible for this credit.”

Final Thoughts

This is pretty neat! Am I the only one that wishes Amex would change the $200 airline incidental to a general purpose travel credit like this? Of course they still had to stick in the restriction of amextravel, but still. This credit works in addition to the credits you already have available on the card, so there is a ton of value here. Of course, how much travel can we really do this year is yet to be seen, but I still think this is a nice gesture anyway.
