American Express has been in a giving mood as of late — at least for cardholders of the Platinum Card from American Express. In the past couple of months, we’ve seen Amex surprise cardholders with BLADE gift cards and Amazon Echos. Now, the issuer is sending around $250 Tiffany & Co. gift cards to select Platinum cardholders.

TPG reader Andrew S. sent in this image that Amex had randomly gifted him the $250 to Tiffany & Co:

The wording along with the card explains that it’s complimentary and no purchase is necessary. It’s not clear how Amex is targeting which Platinum cardholders get the gift, but it’s nice that the issuer is continuing to surprise unsuspecting cardholders with a reward just for having the card in their wallet.

The Amex Platinum card currently comes with a welcome bonus of 60,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $5,000 in the first three months. With the card, you’ll earn 5x points on airfare booked directly with the airline and on hotels booked through amextravel.com. In addition, you’ll get up to $200 in annual Uber credits and a $200 annual airline fee credit at one airline to be used for incidentals. Plus, there’s always the possibility that Amex will surprise you with a gift just for being a cardholder.

The Platinum Card® from American Express

The American Express Platinum card has some of the best perks out there: cardholders enjoy the best domestic lounge access (Delta SkyClubs, Centurion Lounges, and Priority Pass), a $200 annual airline fee credit as well as up to $200 in Uber credits, and mid-tier elite status at SPG, Marriott, and Hilton. Combined with the 60,000 point welcome offer -- worth $1,140 based on TPG's valuations -- this card is a no-brainer for frequent travelers. Here are 5 reasons you should consider this card, as well as how you can figure out if the $550 annual fee makes sense for you.
