American Express announced a number of statement credit opportunities earlier this year. One of them was a monthly, if-used $20 statement credit for Business Platinum from American Express cardholders who use their card for eligible shipping purchases.

Not everyone makes shipping purchases directly with, say, UPS or FedEx online or at their service centers.

But if you need something from a UPS Store — shipping, packing supplies, a passport picture, notary services, mailbox renewal, whatever — the monthly shipping credit can save you a few bucks.

I tested this out because I wanted to confirm that UPS Stores weren’t some crazy exclusion from the Business Platinum from American Express‘ shipping credit benefit.
