Select American Express cardholders will soon be able to tap it back with preferred SoulCycle benefits. Beginning Tuesday, cardholders of the Platinum Card from American Express and Centurion Card will have access to reduced class rates, an easier path to SuperSoul status and more at the indoor cycling giant, SoulCycle.
As of Tuesday, Platinum and Centurion cardholders will be able to enroll in the latest benefit of the cards. Here’s what you’ll get access to at 82 SoulCycle locations across the US:
- Three complimentary classes when a series of 20 classes is purchased online at soul-cycle.com
- SuperSoul status with the purchase of a series of 25 SuperSoul classes (compared to the standard requirement of a 50-class SuperSoul purchase)
- 10 First Time Free passes to provide to new riders
- Retail perks including advance access to SoulCycle warehouse sales and free shipping on orders placed online at soul-cycle.com
To take advantage of these benefits, you’ll need to head to the Amex SoulCycle page and log in to your SoulCycle account. You’ll then be asked to verify your Amex Platinum or Centurion account via a pop-up Amex window. Once you’ve connected your accounts, you’re ready to stand up out of the saddle and put the benefits to use.
Regularly, a purchase of 20 classes is $600, but with your benefit from Amex, you’re getting an additional three classes for free. Three classes purchased on their own cost $102, so there’s the potential for some valuable savings here if you’re an avid cycler. In addition, the 25 SuperSoul classes and SuperSoul status will run you a total of $1,750, a package that’s not available to non-Platinum or Centurion SoulCycle customers. In addition, on your next trip to a SoulCycle store, you can ask for your your 10 First Time Free passes to hand out to first-time SoulCyclers — think family members or friends who’ve never tried it before.
If you’ve never tried it, SoulCycle is a great workout, and TPG himself is a huge fan. In fact, TPG often uses it as a way to exhaust himself before a long flight. Or, you could even use a class to help kick the sluggish jetlag doldrums.
This is a nice addition from Amex. Even if you’re not a big SoulCycle fan or are someone who has never tried it, the fact that Amex is adding new and interesting benefits is a positive. As a reminder, the Platinum Card currently comes with a sign-up bonus of 60,000 points after you spend $5,000 in the first three months. You’ll earn 5x points on flights booked directly with the airline, and 5x points for flights and hotels booked with American Express Travel. Plus, you’ll have access to other perks like a $200 annual airline fee credit, access to Centurion Lounges, a Priority Pass membership and more. The card comes with an annual fee of $550.
