AMEX has sent me the following message to share with DansDeals readers,

“Due to the impact of COVID-19, for eligible Card accounts approved from December 1, 2019 through May 31, 2020 for which you are eligible for a welcome offer, the period to make eligible purchases to earn your welcome bonus will be extended for an additional 3 months. Eligible Cards are U.S. Consumer and Business Cards issued by American Express National Bank to a Basic Card Member.”

I’ve heard that several banks were giving extensions if you asked for one, but it’s great to see this policy applied automatically for everyone on both recently opened and new accounts!

Any idea if this would apply to a spend requirement from a retention offer?


How about upgrade bonus with spend requirement?


Dan, do you think Chase will match this?


What about the capital one 50k spend?


Capital One extended my 5k and additional 45k spend to 12/31/20. For me, that’s an extra 5 and 8 months! My 5k was going to expire 4/27.


Dan, what banks have you heard have been granting extensions?


@Dan how can I see if mine got extended, delta gold card?


Do you think Chase will do the same?


Confirmed Chase will be doing for me on ink preferred! Sent the a SM. Waiting on answer if is for all cards or just a one time courtesy.
