How to Get the Most Out of Your Statement Credits

1. Buy Gift Cards
You will still get the statement credit if you buy gift cards. This is a great way to get the full amount from your credit.
2. Split the Bill
If you decide to use your AMEX credit cards at a local restaurant, you could ask the server to divide the bill into separate checks.
3. Pay in $10 Increments
Some shops may allow you to pay for a larger item in separate payments on different AMEX cards.
