If your AMEX Platinum Consumer Card renewed between 4/1/20-7/31/20, you are now eligible for up to $200 back in statement credits for spending on travel purchased directly from AMEX Travel. Eligible spending includes airfare, hotels, flight+hotel packages, car rentals, and tours paid with your Platinum Consumer card from 8/1/20 through 12/31/21.
If you card renews between August 2020-March 2021 then your $200 credit will be available on the first day of your renewal month through 12/31/21.
When your card is eligible you’ll see the tracker when you login to your AMEX account where you can see how much credit you have received:
Thanks to free change policies, you can cancel your flight and get JetBlue or Alaska travel credit that’s valid for 1 year for anyone or United credit that’s valid for 2 years for anyone, so this credit should be really easy to earn! Those expiration dates go into effect from the time that you cancel your flight.
It’s been a good week for AMEX Platinum Consumer cardholders, earlier this week most cards were also targeted for $100 off $100 at Dell.
