American Express India has gone full swing this Quarter and has launched multiple offers across various credit and charge cards that’s worth exploring. Here is the offer targeted for the American Express Platinum Reserve Card holders:
|Offer||20% Cashback on select merchants|
|Merchants||Flipkart, MakeMyTrip, Zomato|
|Offer Period||1st April 2021 to 30th June 2021|
|Max. Cap||5,000 INR|
The offer is definitely good, but not aggressive enough for the kind of fee they charge on Reserve. I feel 30% off or at-least 25% off would have made more sense than just 20% but well, something is better than nothing.
I’ve been holding the Plat Reserve for a while (swap from Amex Jet Privilege) and I rarely use it these days as I don’t find a need. That said, offers like this certainly helps. Hope it gets better in future.
Not to forget, when you have premium cards like Reserve, you’re eligible for Amex premium offers like the 25% off with Taj, etc. So Reserve is useful in a way but for a very very small segment.
What’s your take on the new Amex Plat Reserve offer? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
