Motti

Which benefits were removed?

Freecountry

Nothing for the gold card?

R

unclear if you have a Verizon and ATT phone if you can get $20 per month on EACH

rebyid

If you use AMEX for the wireless benefit, you will not have cellphone protection that other cards provide. Is the there a way to get both? Can I pay $20 with AMEX, the remainder with Ink biz pref for example, and still get the Ink cellphone coverage?

Joel2

No. Need to pay the entire amount on ink preferred

Ejb

You can prob make a misc payment on acct w Amex, not tied to bill

Hippo

On Xfinity Mobile, you can pay against what you owe for the device (if you owe), as a manual one-time payment, without affecting the monthly billing and thus keep the monthly on a CIP or other cc for insurance.

BK

you can’t pay a wireless telephone bill with a credit card, you need to pay the bill directly from the bank…how would one get the credit?

dealsrus

They should add additional options for the airline credit, I have harder time using those now (no gcs).

sk

do I have to pay my phone bill with the Amex card to get the $20 off ? and do I have to call them for the credit ?

jb

Nothing for Gold premier membership rewARDS?

Zali

So if I have Delta blue and Marriott consumer, I would earn more airline miles in the supermarket using Delta, as the Marriott converts 3 points into 1 airline mile. Correct?

Freecountry

If I sign up for or upgrade to the Platinum now will I receive these benefits?

SC

For the Hilton Surpass Card, re. the purchases at U.S. restaurants, including takeout and delivery, does that include Uber Eats, DoorDash and such?

dealsrus

Postage stamps from post office should work

Sruly

How long is the wireless credit for? Also till the end of the year?

Z

The marriot 300 dollar restaurant credit will only be valid starting in june?

Joe

I think that is only with the aspire card, not the surpass

ES

Would USPS count for shipping

etech0

Did the Dell credit turn into $200 plus $200? The post says $100 plus $100 for a total of $400.

TY!

Shmobaum

Will it work from TLV?

L

I dont see any offers from platinum for these streaming services

sk

can I buy a Dell gift card and get the credit ?

moshe

you can buy from them Xbox gift cards though

Macher

I’m confused $20 towards phone bill or new phone from the wireless carrier? Thanks

Chaim

Hey so with the dell credit on the business platinum, can the original credit and the bonus credit be used on the same purchase? Meaning if I were to purchase something today (may 1) I would get $200 off? ($100 off for the original and $100 for the bonus?)

Boaz

Will the dell credit work on Bose headphones ?

steve green

are the “streaming” credits automatic on the amex plat consumer if you have a charge or do you need to register a specific service or add an “offer” or something similar?

mark

if I have the biz plat (referral from you 2 yrs ago- thank you!) do i need to do anything to get the $400? is there a min spend needed to hit the full $400? TIA

anon

thanks

Avi

I’m not getting to the landing page to register for the additional Dell credit. It jumps to the original Dell offer of $100 Jan-June and $100 off July to Dec.

MG

Does the streaming credit apply to additional cardholders as well?

joel

additional card holders also get back $20 per month on wireless services and dell

Daniel

Can we buy a netflix or hulu gift card and get the $20 credit? Thank you

ED

Anything for the blue cash preffered card?

lindnuck

I get 5x on my Ink plus a discount for autopay. Is there a way anyone knows of, to apply $20 to my Amex and then the balance to the Chase, all while keeping the autopay discount?

jew

Can you please explain the last point about spending on hilton? How much will I need to spend to get Diamond? (Although I currently hold the aspire card) and how do I get lifetime status?

ETP

Aspire (or Surpass) card weekend cretificates do not show up in Hilton Honors online account and there is no way to check their expirtation date (apart from the original email that has the certificate code and expiration date.) How can we check whether the certificate expiration date has indeed been extended by Hilton as they claim and its new expiration date?

jew

Call them

jew

Anyone have accurate info on the actual renewal date on the $250 aspire credit and $300 Marriott? I keep getting conflicting info from Amex. Does it renew on the day of statement closing date of the billing cycle that annual fee hits? Or the anniversary date of when you opened the card? And bichlal they keep telling me dif dates for my anniversary. How can I easily check myself? Thank you

jew

Just chatted from 2 different accounts and on one of them they said anniversary date and the other they said a month later…

Kaka

Is the Charles Schwab Platinum considered as a consumer platinum? Thanks!

usernamechuck

I was wondering the same question. Have not received any email about it, while we did get email for Aspire, so I’m guessing not. 🙁

Stephen

Also wondering the same. I put a $20 payment on my cell phone bill, so we’ll see. Holding off on the streaming services until I get confirmation.

Erika

It looks like it counts as a personal card

Stephen

Indeed counts as a personal card. Paid T-Mobile bill on 5/1 ($20) and credit applied on 5/4 as AMEX WIRELESS PHONE SERVICE CREDIT.

Menashe

“…on the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card can now be used any night of the week (not just on weekends)…”

Is this only for the Surpass weekend night, and not Aspire? I don’t see any info on Hilton’s website, where did you see this? Could be very useful for next year 😉

joel

where did you get the info on the dell additional 100 can i see that on amex ?

Joe

Is the credit with Dell something that you have to activate with Amex offers?

joel

your amex to dell link takes you to the regular shop dell promo where does it write clearly about the extra 200 ?

joel

tnx gut shaboss so over my 3 cards with 10 percent i have 660

joel

in one transaction for each half year

Mike

Dan i didn’t see a write up on Hilton new offer for lifetime status?
how much do you need to spend to get Hilton lifetime status? is it worth getting?
(Gold status is already included with my AMEX platinum card)

Alexander

Any extra benefits for Centurion????

SHmeel

can i use 20$ credit for accesorry bought from phone company

I checked

Terms say not applicable to hardware

ase

will the wireless credit work on ultra mobile?

yoko

If I already used $100 of the Dell credit in March (before this extra promo came out), can I spend another $100 and still get the credit or do I have to wait till it resets in June for $200?

Dovid

I have an auto pay discount on Verizon, and when I attempt to make a $20 payment they give a warning that the discount may be removed if this payment is made with a credit card.

Any ideas of how to use the statement credit in this situation?

Erika

I am going to try to do a work around with buying gift cards so that I can save up and only lose the auto pay once. I dont know if it will work but I can keep you posted

Erika

Buying a $25 gift card at verizon triggers the $20 credit.

Myi

And they do it again with the Amex Gold card.
They leave it alone but keep raising the AF, not quite sure why I still have it, not worth $250, had it already for 5 years and there’s nothing in particular that makes it worthwhile.
$120 Dining credit is great if I remember to use it , and it’s only $10 a month which is nice but again it’s $10. So I’m not in a hurry to waste an hour trying to order food to save $10. (Or save the other $20 by not ordering.)
And the Airline $100 credit is not being put to use, so we have an AF of $130 for what? Oh 4x on groceries if that still around?
They really got out help out the gold card, not sure why it’s still around. And not to forget they stripped it of all it’s extended benefits and purchase protection… Let’s see what they do or if they do something to make up for the $250 AF, if not I think I’m off to find another card..

Yidel

I have a Dell quote so I can’t use the dell.com/amex link, would still get both credits?

mickey

Thank you !
Made a $10 payment on my Sprint account using the personal Green card. Credit posted today. see you next month !!!
