There’s a online shopping program that rivals Amazon Prime’s 2-day free shipping, and you might be able to get it for free — if you have an American Express card, that is. It’s called ShopRunner, and it’s a membership program that partners with retailers to get you expedited shipping.

Some popular featured stores include Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, Rebecca Minkoff, Bergdorf Goodman, BCBG Maxazria, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and more. Plus, if you have The Platinum Card® from American Express, remember that you get a $100 credit to Saks every year. How’s that for double dipping?

ShopRunner usually costs $79/year, but play your cards right and you can get it for free… pun intended. Eligible cards include:

The information for the Amex EveryDay, and Amex EveryDay Preferred has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Just keep in mind that this doesn’t include American Express cards from other financial institutions, such as the Wells Fargo Propel Amex card.

Here’s how it works:

  • Enroll your card at shoprunner.com/amex
  • Shop at any store that participates in ShopRunner (and don’t forget to use a shopping portal!)
  • Select ShopRunner-eligible items
  • Choose ShopRunner at checkout and sign into your account

See? Easy! The only other thing to note is that most retailers have a minimum order value of about $25, which shouldn’t be too hard to reach.

Wedding season is in full swing and Father’s Day is around the corner, so next time you’re eyeing something from your favorite store, keep in mind you might be able to get it sooner than you think thanks to Amex’s ShopRunner benefit.
