When American Express Business Platinum introduced Dell credits my honest reaction was in the realm of ” well, this is useless benefit for me.” If you’re unfamiliar, cardholders get a $200 annual Dell credit split into 2, $100 statement credits twice a year ( Jan to June, July to December ).
My attitude changed however once I dug into it a bit more, and while I still don’t value the credit at a full $200, I have found value. That value recently increased when Amex announced an additional $200 worth of credits making it a total of $400 in 2020.
Dell permits splitting payments
This is great if you personally have more than one Amex Business Platinum, or there is more than one in your family and you want to split payment. My personal household has 3, so that’s $1200 in credits we will score for 2020.
Portable battery chargers
Yep, while I think Anker makes some of the best on the market, these Aluratek’s are pretty great as well. I recently tested the 10k out on a trip across Europe and found it’s palm size to be perfect to stash in my Bluffworks jacket for the day – they’re currently having a big sale too – . It’s considerably smaller than my 12k Anker and provides roughly the same amount of charge. At $25…I can purchase 4 of these every six months which are perfect for gifts.
While most Bose headphones are significantly more than $100…you can find deals quite often. I’ve used both of the below options and they are quite nice, and I would recommend over say…wireless headphones from Beats.
I find myself moving my laptop around all the time, and often times, I’m in a room that doesn’t have a surge protector and I plug it straight into the wall. A could pick up a few of these and tuck them under a couch, bed, etc.
Spencer Howard and I are currently working up a podcast and this bad boy could come in handy.
