Offering lounge access and a plethora of travel perks, The Platinum Card® from American Express is an ideal card for frequent travelers.

However, it has plenty of other lifestyle and everyday benefits worth using, too. For example, Platinum cardholders get up to $100 in Saks Fifth Avenue credits every calendar year: $50 from January to June and another $50 in the second half of the year (enrollment required).

As we get further into 2022, this is a friendly reminder to use your $50 Saks credit for the first half of the year before June 30.

While you can put your credit toward more expensive items (such as footwear, clothing or luggage), it’s definitely possible to find items that are $50 or less. In this guide, we’ve pulled together 9 fun and useful Saks items available for under $50, either online or in stores.
