To recap, this new perk applies specifically to cardmembers with The Platinum Card® from American Express — if you have any of the personal US-based Amex Platinum cards, you’ll be eligible to receive a $50 credit on all Saks purchases between January and June of each year, and a second $50 credit between July and December.
I completed the one-click registration process here, and the benefit appeared on my account right away.
I plan to take full advantage of this perk twice a year. While it will likely require spending a bit over $50, the rebate presents a great opportunity to add some gear with a notable discount — especially when paired with Saks’ frequent sales. And, as always, I’ll be sure to begin my shopping adventure at an airline portal to add some frequent flyer miles and maximize my return.
