If you’re unfamiliar with the Saks credit, here’s what you need to know.

Amex added this benefit to the Amex Platinum in July 2018, and it’s been a popular perk ever since. The credit is available in the form of two $50 statement credits per year. Your first $50 statement credit is available from July 1 – December 31 and your second $50 statement credit is available from January 1 – June 30. You need to enroll your Amex Platinum Card for this benefit to take effect, which you can do through your Amex account online.

While the Saks credit isn’t the greatest Amex Platinum perk, if you find yourself needing to do some last-minute holiday shopping this offer could be a way to maximize savings. Even better, you should be able to stack this offer with the $50 credit, netting savings as well as bonus points. Like most Amex Offers, this appears to be targeted so check across all of your cards to see if you get it.
