2. Early Enrollment Open for Saks Fifth Avenue Credit With The Platinum Card® from American Express
American Express announced that folks with The Platinum Card® from American Express would be able to register for a $100 statement credit from Saks Fifth Avenue beginning July 1, 2018. But it looks like you can register a couple days early!
You’ll get one $50 credit for purchases between January and June And a second $50 credit for purchases between July and December. You’ll have to spend $50+ in a single transaction to trigger the credit.
Unfortunately, you can NOT use the benefit until July 1, 2018. So you won’t be able to earn a $50 statement credit for purchases between January and June this year. Go here to register!
