If you didn’t know already, there’s an American Express Platinum $250 statement credit promotion available right now. To qualify, you must already have the American Express Platinum card and register your card to this promotion.
When does the American Express Platinum $250 statement credit promotion start and where can you make a purchase
Make sure to read the terms and conditions carefully as you don’t want to make the wrong purchase or get in trouble with American Express.
The promotion period is between June 4, 2020 to August 27, 2020.
Stores that qualify for this promotion are the following:
- Uber Eats
Popular stores under the Sobeys brand includes:
- Thrifty Foods
Transactions not eligible for this promotion
Some individuals might be tempted to game the system and buy gift cards or get a store credit or vouchers. And some people might be tempted to buy $250 worth of stuff then return the item to get that $250 statement credit.
I would advise against that. American Express is already being generous with giving us $250 worth of free groceries or Uber Eats, you wouldn’t want your card to get cancelled as a result.
One cool part of this promotion is that it stacks with Uber Eats 6x the points earning. Meaning, if you spend $250 with Uber eats, you can earn 1500 AMEX points. If you use that 1500 AMEX points for the current promotion where you can redeem 1000 AMEX platinum points and get $20 in return, you can see that you can make a nice $30 profit!
When can you expect to get your statement credit?
According to the terms and conditions, you can expect to get the American Express Platinum $250 statement credit within 90 days after August 27, 2020. Though, it’s been reported that some people are actually getting the statement credit earlier. Your experience may vary.
This promotion is incredible and helps many people out during these bad economic conditions we are currently living in. This is why I love American Express and have always been my favourite credit card issuer in Canada due to all these amazing perks.
