Now is a fantastic time for American Express Platinum (personal/consumer card) members to take advantage of their biannual $50 Saks Fifth Ave credit.

Why?

Rakuten currently offers 10% cashback — a significant increase from the normal 2%! (Don’t have a Rakuten account? Sign up for free using our referral link and enjoy a $10 bonus after spending a minimum of only $25 within 90 days of becoming a member.)

Plus, there’s a great clearance sale going on now. For example, I saw a $198 sweater on sale for $59.40. And t-shirt that costs about $100 (seriously?!) selling for $60. Or get yourself some socks and underwear, compliments of Amex and Saks!

The Platinum Card from American Express.

**But remember to go through Rakuten and save 10% — which stacks with the Amex deal on eligible purchases!**

The Amex Platinum – Saks Credit

American Express Platinum (personal/consumer card) members receive $50 in Saks Fifth Ave statement credits twice yearly: one valid from January through June, and the other from July through December.

Plus, your Amex Platinum card makes your eligible for complimentary two-day shipping through Shoprunner.

Enjoy!

  1. Does anyone know whether, if you have TWO Amex Platinum cards in the family, whether one can buy a $100 gift at Saks and split the cost between two Amex Platinum cards 50-50? Question #2, can one buy a $50 Saks gift card with the Amex Platinum card and get the reimbursement from Amex? Thanks.

    • @Don in ATL: It’s $50 (if used) each January-June. And then $50 (if used) July-December. You could use the Amex Platinum card for the first $50 and then whatever card for the other $50.

      As for question #2, check the terms and conditions. 😉

  2. @Chris, I guess my question wasn’t clear. My spouse and I each have an Amex Platinum Card. We each have the aforementioned $50 credit for Jan-June. Can we buy a $100 item at Saks, and pay for it by using our two cards, asking Saks to place a $50 charge on one card and a $50 charge the second Amex Platinum card – MAKING THAT ITMEM FREE TO US. This is sort of like when you split the bill at a restaurant – $100 meal, 2 people, waiter puts $50 charge on each card? (We don’t shop at Saks, We just want to make use of the credit on each card, and pay as little as possible out our pockets.) Thanks.

    • @Don in ATL: If your spouse is a primary cardholder on their account and you’re a primary cardholder on your account (in other words, no authorized user cards involved in the transaction), it should credit. (Rakuten offers 2% cashback Saks purchases in-store right now, so make sure to add your cards to your accounts.)
