Now’s the time to use this benefit for 2016 if you haven’t yet, as you must use it by the end of the year, otherwise any unused value will be lost. As you can see, I still have a ways to go on my airline fee credit for the remainder of the year, so will personally be booking an international award ticket, as in my experience the taxes/fees from awards tickets on Delta are coded as qualifying transactions.
$200 Airline Fee Credit: Select a qualifying airline to get started. Then receive up to $200 in statement credits per calendar year when incidental fees, such as checked bags and in – flight refreshments, are charged by the airline to your Business Platinum Card Account or Platinum Card Account.
In addition, this benefit doesn’t offer credit toward airline tickets, mileage points purchases or mileage points transfer fees, gift cards, upgrades, duty–free purchases, or award tickets. Eligible purchases made by both the Basic and any Additional Card Members are covered. However, statement credits for eligible purchases can’t exceed $200 on the Card account per calendar year.
If you haven’t used your $200 airline fee credit from either The Platinum Card® from American Express and See More Business card offers here now is the time to do so! Booking award tickets and paying for the taxes/fees should trigger the credit. You can also buy airline lounge passes, change fees, baggage and inflight purchases of food/drink. If you don’t get reimbursed automatically, then give Amex a call.
