Cardholders of the Platinum Card® from American Express can expect to receive some new added benefits for this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has put a halt to travel and has resulted with the temporary closure of all American Express Centurion lounges.
In light of the current situation is adding two additional monthly statement credits:
- On-Demand Savings: Get up to $20 back in statement credits each month when you use your Card for select U.S. streaming subscriptions through 12/31/20.
- Support for Staying Connected: Get up to $20 back in statement credits each month you use your Card on wireless telephone services purchased directly from U.S. service providers through 12/31/20.

Examples of merchants that accept the Card and where you can earn additional rewards for Wireless services include:
It’s nice to see American Express add these additional statement credits, which add up to $360 additional savings for 2020 if you’re able to max out on both the steaming and wireless service benefit.
There’s no need to register for these credits, all you’ll need to do is spend on your eligible Platinum Card and the statement credit should be reflected automatically.
Additionally, American Express has been known to be giving out retention offers. If your annual fee is coming up, I’d recommend call the retention line at 855-857-7657, and ask if there’s any retention offers available for your account.
