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 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. Here’s what I use them for:
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. 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. My dad just used his credit to pick up a pair with reimbursement.
Another thing to note
If you’re in 2 player mode, you can actually pay with two cards, meaning you could get up to $200 every 6 months and bring another whole set of items into play. Long story short…purchasing items outside of Dell has been quite a solid use of the credit at casa Monkey Miles.
