Good morning everyone. A few days ago, American Express unveiled several new benefits for several of their personal and business cards. Doctor of Credit has all the details regarding the card benefits, but for today’s post, I am going to talk about the monthly $20 Shipping and $20 Wireless Phone Service credits for the American Express Business Platinum Card.
These benefits were announced and went live on May 1, so I waited no time testing out the credits. On May 1, I wrote How to Purchase & Print USPS Shipping Labels Online (AMEX Business Platinum Card $20 Monthly Benefit). I purchased a $10.90 shipping label through the USPS website to ship an item I sold on Amazon. Later that day, I made a one time $20 payment to my AT&T wireless phone bill. Both purchases posted on May 1 and the subsequent statement credits posted on May 4. That is a really fast turnaround time for the statement credits to post.
For more details, here is what the AMEX SHIPPING CREDIT looks like for an online USPS purchase:
Here is what the AMEX WIRELESS PHONE SERVICE CREDIT looks like for an online payment to AT&T:
I look forward to spending the remaining $9.10 of my $20 shipping credit by May 31 (I have several items for sale on Amazon and eBay, so I’m pretty sure I can use up the remainder of the credit). On June 1, and every first of the month going forward, I plan to make a manual $20 payment to AT&T. That reminds me, I need to set up a Google Calendar reminder for the first of the month so I do not forget. If you have any questions about the shipping or wireless phone service credits offered on the American Express Business Platinum Card, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
P.S. Don’t forget to make a $100+ Dell purchase to use the second $100 Dell Credit for January – June 2020.
