You are probably already aware that Amex Business Platinum cardholders ( who had their card before 11/1/2020) are eligible to receive 5x points on US gas, up 80k points until the end of June. That benefit was announced in early January. Things just got a little sweeter. Check your Amex Offers, but my Amex Business Platinum was targeted for 3x points. My Amex Business Gold was targeted as well, and remember, Amex Business Gold awards 4x points to the top two categories you spend most on in a month. Gas happens to be on one those categories…so this means you could be earning 7x points on every purchase through 9/29/21. Pretty amazing deal really. I try my best to make use of as many Amex Offers as possible since I spend so much on annual fees and this is a great way to offset them.
But Zach…you said up to 13x. Yes…for those of you who acquired an Amex Platinum with the current 10x on US Gas and US Supermarkets offer and your card is targeted with this 3x offer, you could earn up to 13x on your gas purchases at Conoco, Philips 66, 76. My Amex Green, which currently has an upgrade offer on it to the 10x Platinum offer, is targeted. If I pulled the trigger on that upgrade, the Amex Offer would be in tact, so that tells me there will be people able to earn up to 13x.
The average American family spends $250 a month on gas. That’s 3250 Amex points every month if you maxed it out at 13x. 8x is 2k a month…and so on.
Here are the 7 American Express Cards that I keep and links to their current offers and why we have them in our wallet and recommend your consideration. If you’re unfamiliar with Amex Offers…read our full breakdown.
