How I used my Dell Amex Offers
Dell added some new incentives via Amex Offers, and if you haven’t used your first $100 Dell statement credit from your Amex Business Platinum credit, it’s time to do so before it refreshed in July. If you aren’t familiar with what I’m referring to, Amex Business Platinum refreshes Dell statement credits, which are $100 per 6 months for 2021, every 6 months. You still have a couple of weeks to make use of this credit for the first half of 2021.
It gets better though…
Amex just targeted accounts with an Dell Amex offer: 10% off purchases, up to $1500 in total statement credits.
You may be in the camp that thinks you don’t have much use for Dell credits, and you should really reconsider that position. Dell has a lot of products, which we get into detail in this post, that are outside of Dell branded products like portable chargers, projectors, printers, headphones, microphones, cables, memory cards, etc. Let’s take a look at the current offers that are circulating.
Amex Offers: Get 10% off, up to $1500 in total statement credits
Pretty straight forward and extends well into 2021.
Stack with Dell $100 Amex Business Platinum credit
That’s right folks, if you’re an American Express Business Platinum credit cardholder you’ll receive a $200 statement credit split into 2, $100 credits, each 6 months of the year.
Using multiple cards to maximize your offers via Split Payment
Amex Offers can be targeted to various cards, so if the 10% off was targeted to a card aside from your Amex Business Platinum you could add it and split payments. Additionally, if you carry more than one Amex Business Platinum you can make use of both Dell credits on a single purchase by splitting as well. I want you to know that you can add each card that is targeted to max out your credits and offers.
For instance, I split payments between my two Amex Business Platinums to trigger each of their $100 statement credits for the first half of 2021 and picked up this small yeti to travel with and some dope bose headphones.
Add in Rakuten to earn even more Membership Rewards – keep an eye on this – it was as high as 15x earlier this year
Rakuten partnered with American Express to allow users the ability to earn Membership Rewards instead of cashback. That’s what I do, and how I’ve earned over 100k points this year off referrals and bonus points. You’ll notice that since Amex Offers are triggered on the backend of a purchase, you earn the Rakuten multiple on the full purchase price. In the example above, a $700 tv would earn 2x points, or 1400 additional Membership Rewards
Getting even more money off at Dell with this current Amex Offer is fantastic, but stacking it with Amex Business Platinum Dell credits and Rakuten bonuses is even better. See you on TikTok!
