Do you have The Platinum Card® from American Express in your wallet? Offering lounge access, U.S. Uber credits and bonus points on travel, the card comes with a $550 annual fee (see rates and fees). Although the card is ideal for travelers, you can also use it to shop online if you’re stuck at home and not traveling right now.

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). Now is the time to start planning on how to spend your biannual Saks credit.

Although you can put your credit toward more expensive items, such as footwear, clothing or luggage, it is possible to find items that are $50 or less. We’ve pulled together 10 of our favorite Saks items available right now for under $50, available online or in stores.

Don’t forget to head over to Saks via a shopping portal to double dip and earn points on your online purchase. Presently, American Airlines is offering 2x points per dollar spent at Saks, but these offers change quickly, so it’s worth checking out your favorite portal. If you’d rather use the portal with the best offer, check out Saks on EVRewards to find out where you’ll get the most bonus points.
