This potential limited time $180 Paypal credit is in addition to the card’s regular $100 annual Saks credit, $200 airline fee credit, and $200 annual Uber credit with Uber VIP status and a year of free Uber Eats Pass. You can read more about the AMEX Consumer Platinum Card benefits here.
The Paypal credit is valid when making purchases in US dollars using a US Paypal account. The terms exclude Gift cards and person to person payments even if you select that the payment is for goods and services, though it remains to be seen if that will be enforced. If you try it out, let us know how it goes!
Many stores, such as Walmart.com, offer a Paypal checkout option that would qualify for this credit. Or you can donate to charity via Paypal.
The terms state that it can take up to 12 weeks to get a credit, though I’d be surprised if it actually takes that long. Typically, AMEX credits post within 2-7 days.
It appears that this will replace the $20 monthly streaming credit and the $20 monthly wireless credit that the Consumer Platinum card has offered since May 2020.
This promotion is only valid on Consumer Platinum cards, not on Business Platinum cards. Secondary cardholders do not get their own $30 credit, but are able to get credited for Paypal spending on their cards towards the $30 max per card account. If you have multiple primary Consumer Platinum cards then you can earn the credit on each card.
