American Express dropped an interesting, targeted Amex Offer today that awards statement credit for purchases made with select tech retailers such as Dell, Apple, HP, and more!

I received this attractive promotion on my Business Platinum Card from American Express as well as my Delta Reserve business card.

Get a $90 statement credit by using your enrolled Business Card to spend a minimum of $1,000 in one or more transactions with select U.S. technology providers by 1/31/2021. Limit of 3 statement credits (total of $270). See terms for participating merchants and exclusions.

There are several different spend thresholds and statement credit awards floating around. According to GC Galore, variations include:

  • Spend $500+ in one or more transactions with select U.S. technology providers & get $40 back
  • Spend $2,000+ in one or more transactions with select U.S. technology providers & get $40 back
  • Spend $300+ in one or more transactions with select U.S. technology providers & get $30 back = (with a limit of 3 times).
  • Spend $1,000+ in one or more transactions with select U.S. technology providers & get $90 back (with a limit of 3 times).

The participating retailers are:

  • Apple
  • CDW
  • Dell
  • HP
  • IBM
  • Intuit
  • Lenovo
  • Microsoft
  • Newegg
  • Oracle
  • Rackspace
  • Sage Software
  • Salesforce.com
  • Symantec
  • Tiger Direct

Notice that Dell is one of the retailers. So if you hold the Business Platinum Card from American Express, this offer should stack nicely with your semiannual statement credits. And remember at least Rakuten — if not more shopping portals — is offering 15% cashback this coming weekend on Dell purchases.

To Which Amex Card Should You Add the Offer?

There are a few things to consider.

As always: whatever works best for you, your budget, and your needs is probably the best option.

Keep in mind the offer doesn’t expire until January 31, 2021. So even if you’re like me and already used your Amex Business Platinum card’s Dell statement credits, you still have time to take advantage of the promotion next year.

Delta Reserve Business Card from American Express.

I added it to my Delta Reserve business card because I’m almost to a $30,000 spending threshold that earns 15,000 MQM. If I can save $270 getting there, hey, even better. Yes, Membership Rewards are more valuable than SkyMiles. But this Amex Offer will make it much easier to hit the $30k spend.

Final Approach

I like this Amex Offer. It offers an array of eligible retailers who sell not only computers and other electronic gear but also gift cards. So it may also save you a few bucks on gifts this holiday season.

  1. I got the offer but the terms were crazy: Spend $20,000 and get $1500 back. That is plain weird, I’d never be able to useit.
