American Express has launched a new statement credit offer with Dell Technologies.

It is worth £100 to £150 per year of statement credit on your future purchases from dell.co.uk.  Importantly, this is not a one-off promotion but an ongoing Cardmember benefit. 

There is a different offer for Business Platinum and Business Gold Cardmembers, and we will look at each in turn.

Free gifts for American Express Business Platinum cardholders

What do American Express Business Platinum Cardmembers receive?

As a reminder, American Express Business Platinum comes with a wide range of benefits for the small business owner.

You can find full details in our review of American Express Business Platinum.  Core cardmember benefits include:

  • You will receive a free Priority Pass card.  You and a guest receive unlimited complementary access to 1200 airport lounges across the world.
  • Your Supplementary Cardholder also gets a Priority Pass card.  If this is your partner or spouse, you would both be able to get into the lounge for free and each bring in a guest.
  • You will receive comprehensive travel insurance.  This is a very valuable benefit because of the high level of coverage available – you can take a look at the policy document here (PDF). There is NO EXCESS payable on the worldwide travel insurance cover, although a £50 excess applies to purchase protection cover. Medical assistance and expenses are covered up to the age of 80.
  • You will receive Gold Elite status in the Marriott Bonvoy hotel loyalty scheme.
  • You will receive Gold status in the Radisson Rewards hotel loyalty scheme.  
  • You will receive Gold Elite status in the Hilton Honors hotel loyalty scheme.  This is the best mid-tier hotel status to have, because you get free breakfast with it.
  • You will receive Gold status in the MeliaRewards hotel loyalty scheme. 
  • You receive £150 or equivalent cashback when you book a onefinestay home rental.  
  • You receive a free digital subscription to The Times and The Sunday Times.  
  • You can access the Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts Programme.  This offers genuine added value benefits at a large number of luxury hotels across the world.

There is an annual fee of £595 per year.  American Express Business Platinum is a Charge Card and you must repay your balance in full each month.

There is a generous sign-up bonus of 40,000 American Express Membership Rewards® points if you spend £6,000 within 90 days and meet the criteria for receiving the bonus.

You will receive 1 Membership Rewards point for virtually every £1 spent on the Card. 

This HfP article looks at how you can use American Express Membership Rewards points to benefit your business.

Can new Cardmembers receive the Dell statement credit offer?

Yes.

New applicants for American Express Business Platinum or American Express Business Gold will be able to register for the Dell statement credit offer.

Conclusion

The addition of £150 of Dell statement credit is a generous extra offer for American Express Business Platinum Cardmembers. 

It is an especially good deal for American Express Business Gold Cardmembers, representing 80% of the annual fee from Year 2 onwards.

Whilst the credit would represent a good discount on a new computer, it is valid against any product bought from the Dell website.  You could purchase ink, toner, a docking station, a carry case, a mouse, a keyboard or a new monitor – amongst other things – and receive your statement credit.

If you were thinking of applying for an American Express Business card, it has just become more attractive.

    I may have missed it but It’s not totally clear in the article, it says up to £75/£50 so is that receive £1 per £1 up to the limit?

    • L Allen says:

      The salient comment in the article is “There is no minimum spend required to receive the statement credit”. So, yes, I would expect to receive £1 back for £1 spent up to £50.

  • Andrew says:

    Would be good if a retail credit of some sort was added to personal platinum ongoing benefits – similar to the annual $100 at Saks they get in the US. Platinum in the U.K. need to diversify their benefits away from totally travel related.

  • Rob says:

    I triggered this last night. For some reason one of my transactions did not qualify and I have no idea which one. However I spent another £50 yesterday on stuff for my daughter, taking my total spend to £305, and the email arrived immediately.

  • TripRep says:

    Dell has a flash sale coming up next week for their employee advantage program.

    • Npwharf says:

      Thanks for the heads up, was going to buy a monitor today but I’ll hang on until next week now and see if the deal gets better.

  • Tony says:

    No link on this on my Bus Plat, also no Paypal offer.

    Only some very dubious offers on stuff that no one in theire right mind would have as a first choice.

    Made one use of the Donald Russel order though last year – good – but not worth the cost over the local butcher.

    They (AMEX) say that it is a business card, so not able to have spend offers, but have plenty of jewelry and fashion offers instead. No logic.

    I await the post from Rob telling us what to buy to maximize the return after all the e bay fees and “lost parcel” scams out there. IMHO better to have just given a card rebate. ( or as one lump discount instead of two ) I find DELL over priced but good quality.

    Open to advice on how to benefit this offer.

    Oh btw does the Platinum One fine Stay discount of £150 stack with the card offer of £200 one fine stay credit ?

  • The Streets says:

    You have to register for it in a different way. Rob sets it out in this article

  • Simon says:

    Not in my offers which is a bit annoying??
