Eyal

What’s the streaming music benefit on Amex? If I have Business platinum how do I use it

Keith Gardener

As usual, nothing foe the Gold. Blasphemy!

Yanky

My amex blue cash preferred had a offer for 5 percent off groceries up to $10 statement credit

Josh

Is there a difference between Free weekend nights earned with the Hilton Business card vs earned with Surpass (and Aspire)?

Yitz

Dont all cards renerw in jan?

david

my bonvoy business amex annual fee hit a few days ago… didn’t get the credit, called today and wouldn’t apply it.. worth a huca?

Jeremiah

My Amex bonvoy business renewed on 4/22. Why in the world should I be excluded from this $50 credit. I called Amex and no dice

Mendy

Tell them you want to cancel, ask to speak to the retention department and see what they offer you to stay.

CollegeGirl

Same here mine renewed sometime in April and I’ve been in quarantine since March 15!

y

Dan, can we get a new/updated post comparing the amex consumer platinum and sapphire reserve cards. Thanks

Mike

Thanks for the post, I spoke with amex rep and got a reference number for my conversation, she said my platinum business would get $200 credit and all cards that renewed from 3/1/2020 and on will get it. She confirmed with her Superviser

Pad18

So nothing for the Preferred ?? 🙁

Danny

Why does the plain Green get something but not the plain Gold?

Chaim

Does anyone know if Google play music qualifies for streaming service?

ETP

Is Verizon prepaid (charged monthly by Verizon) eligible for wirless telephone credit on Platinum Consumer card?

Mr Green

Anything for the Green Bsns card?

JohnB

The $200 credit on the Platinum consumer card is for booking travel on Amex Travel….Why would someone be booking travel when so many places are closed. No cruises until August 1st, etc. Looking more and more that we should cancel this card. Maybe sign up again next year. Just $550 down the drain.

Mk

My bonvoy business renewed in mid April, any ideas on how I can get the credit $50?
Was thinking of closing it since I always have the consumer card.. but for $75 maybe I’ll keep it for another year

Chaim

Dan, is Google play music considered streaming?

HE

Dan, has anybody confirmed that buying stamps online at USPS will qualify to the $20/month statement credit on U.S. purchases for shipping from May through December (Up to $160 back)?

Shirley

Any answer on this ?

Moshe

@Dan Do you find it odd that Amex has done nothing with the Gold or BGR cards?

Bonvoyd

I have Marriott bonvoy business card and got renewed on. April 8 for $95 so tried getting back the money but no luck I have to cancel by may 7 is there any chance I will get any refund??

Ben

So I guess the business platinum is not getting the $20 streaming credit.

Abraham

My Brilliant consumer card is going to be renewed on May 27th. Any way for me to use the $300 credit towards restaurants? I plan to keep the card after renewal.

Sam

My marriot bonvoy business annual fee hit April 7. Does that mean I’m not getting the statement credit?

Mo

Does the $300 Bonvoy credit which now works towards purchases at US Restaurant any info if that would include uber eats? Or gift cards to restaurant I.e. buying a gc to Burger King?

Tuck

Bonvoy does not work for restaurant credits until June.

dealsrus

Realized I didn’t use all 300 Marriott credit, called and they giving statement credit for the remainder.

Shirley

Can we double dip the restaurant benefit on the Hilton Aspire? I will renew in July.

The sleeve jew

What does it mean targeted offers if my Business card renews before the end of the year will I get the 200 statement credit automatically or do I need to be targeted

John

Does anybody know of an app that keeps track of all possible offers offered by amex in a alphabetic chart ? Instead to having to scroll on on every card seperetly?

Yitz

Anyone have experience using this new added benefit with CALM? Or is it just another useless offer….

Marvin Pollack

how would you compare the 12 points per dollar for groceries to the 5% bonus on chase sapphire?

Lkwd girl

12 points per dollar??!! And what’s calm??

jonny

I assume HBO Max will qualify too, once it comes out on 5/27 and HBO Now migrates over.

scottish

For my business platinum, Amex rep claims it’s either the shipping credit or the wireless credit, not both. Anyone had such experience?

Annie

I TOOK A LOOK AT THE CALM OFFER AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I HAVE A MEMBERSHIP EMAL. I AM NOT INTERESTED IN THIS AT ALL AND CAN NOT FIND A CUSTOMER SERVICE PHONE NUMBER. HELP!

HY

Whos EMAL?

Annie

CALM‘S EMAIL

ckmk47

Google “cookies” and read the posts that are not edible.

A

Wow you seem really stressed from all this. Have you thought about using the free Calm offer?

Freecountry

If I downgrade to the green card will I get the $10 wireless credit?

SD

$20 credit worked for a $25 Verizon gift card.

SD

$20 credit worked for a Verizon gift card.

B

Too bad chase isn’t following… I just canceled my United airlines business card because they didn’t allow to postpone my annual fee till the airline is back to normal operation.

CollegeGirl

I just chatted with a rep and he offered a 1 month deferral on payment which means a saving on interest (about $300) is that good or will it affect my credit!?

CollegeGirl

How can I get Bingo Grocery to be listed as a grocery as opposed to Wholesale? I made a huge order and it’s only giving me 2x points as opposed to the 6x

HY

There are no cards that give six times for wholesale. Bingo with a wholesale store not a grocery store

Collegegirl

Bingo is a regular grocery store why are they listed as wholesale? They’re not like Costco that most things are cases or packages of a number of the same item.
