Fresh Portion of Perks for American Express Corporate Credit Cards
Last week, American Express presented an updated Corporate Program with enhanced benefits for the American Express Corporate Green, Gold, and Platinum credit cards. Over the next few months, the issuer will add to the program new or renewed tools and solutions that are implied to be of benefit to both businesses and their employees.
These changes are mainly due to partnerships with several large service companies. First of all, it applies to Uber. New Uber benefits will be available starting December and include double Uber Rewards points when booking a ride through an Uber business profile with any of the three cards, priority pickups at most U.S. airports for Corporate Gold Card Members, and access to highly rated drivers for Corporate Platinum Card Members.
Another new Amex partner is CLEAR – an identity platform providing a quick and easy bypass through security checkpoints at airports, stadiums, arenas, etc. by using your biometric data like fingerprints and eyes. This benefit will give American Express Corporate cardholders an opportunity to receive up to $179 in statement credit towards CLEAR membership and discover experiences at 60+ locations nationwide. It will be rolled out in November but only affect Corporate Platinum Card Members.
And to finish with, Amex also expanded its existing partnership with Hilton. Earlier, only holders of the Platinum Card could receive Hilton Honors Gold Status for free. However, in November, Corporate Green and Gold Card Members will be upgraded to Hilton Honors Silver Status to take advantage of additional perks at Hilton Hotels and extra Hilton Honors Base Points.
Among other benefits introduced for Amex Corporate Program are business travel benefits (including 24/7 customer emergency and assistance services and insurance benefits like Trip Delay Insurance and Trip Cancellation & Interruption Insurance); annual airline fee credits up to $200 for inflight amenities and baggage fees on eligible airlines; an updated American Express® Business App with new expense report opportunities, and more.
The appearance of credit cards will also change. Now they will be made from reclaimed plastic or metal and support contactless payments. More offerings are expected to be put in use in 2020. American Express will announce them in the nearest future.
