American Express has launched a new promotion to promote everyday spending on the American Express Platinum Card. This promotion is the third after American Express ran similar offers in May 2020 and October 2020 for their Platinum and Centurion Cardmembers. Here are all the details about the new Amex Platinum Cashback Offer, in case you were not targetted the last time around or were not an American Express Platinum Charge Cardmember then.
Get up to INR 27,500 cashback with More Value on Platinum offer.
The new promotion offers a 100% cash back for online & offline spends between January 27 and July 26, 2021. This offer is open for Platinum cardmembers for cards issued in India, and the maximum cap on the cashback is INR 27,500 through the promotion period. Payment needs to be made in Indian currency and is valid for purchases at the following e-retailers online or in-app or offline (at participating outlets). Excludes Flipkart payments made on delivery.
- Flipkart.com (Online/App)
- Croma.com (Online/Offline)
- Zomato.com (Online/App)
- BigBasket.com (Online/App)
- Ethoswatches.com (Online/Offline)
The list of stores where the offer is valid is here.
This offer is open only for cardholders who have been targetted for the offer. To check your eligibility for this offer, cardholders must log in to their American Express online account, check under their Amex Offers and then save the offer on their card. There is no minimum spending amount, and 100% cashback will be applied every time until the INR 27,500 limit is reached. The reimbursement should reflect in your billing statement within five working days. I have received this offer on my Platinum Charge Card. Additionally, a lot of Platinum cardmembers haven’t yet received an email from Amex, but the offer is showing up in their account.
For Centurion Cardmembers, who are an exclusive lot, the same offer exists but they get the ability to consume up to INR 55,000 worth of products from the same brands and receive a cashback for those.
If you don’t have the American Express Platinum Card, maybe it is a good idea to apply now as you would perhaps still get the offer and a lot of time to use it if you get your card soon. With our offer, you get a 110,000 Membership Reward Points on completing a minimum spend, and by January 28, 2021, also an Amazon voucher. Including this offer, I already foresee that INR 30,500 has been received as cash back from American Express with the earlier two cashback offers, and another INR 27,500 with this one will mean we have INR 58,000 back in the pocket. This excludes all the Membership Rewards promotions and all the other offers such as the App Store Cashback and the Shop Small Cashback promotions.
This is an excellent promotion from American Express, where they are just not rewarding cardholders for high-value purchases but also allowing earning cashback on everyday grocery and essential spends. Coupled with last offer, it just goes on to prove that American Express is trying to give as much value to their members while they are not travelling much and staying at home as well.
