American Express Enhances Benefits for Corporate Credit Cards
American Express unveiled a new suite of benefits for their Corporate Green, Gold and Platinum Cards. The company also introduced a Corporate Program for Startups, coming to entrepreneurs this fall.
Amex partnered with Uber to create new offers for all three tiers of corporate cards. When cardholders book a ride through their Uber business profile and pay with their corporate credit card, they will earn double rewards points. These points can be applied to future rides, both business and personal, or can be used for Uber Eats. Platinum and Gold cardholders also get priority pickup at select airports.
American Express is expanding their partnership with Hilton. Platinum cardholders are automatically upgraded to Hilton Honors Gold Status. Starting in November, Gold and Green corporate cardholders will be upgraded to Hilton Honors Silver Status.
Cardholders will also receive up to $179 in statement credits to cover their CLEAR membership. CLEAR uses biometrics to provide fast check-in services at airports, stadiums, arenas, and more.
The Corporate Program for Startups will have exclusive merchant offers tailored to new businesses, along with “dynamic” spending options and access to all corporate card benefits. Participants will have the option to receive complete corporate liability, meaning they will not have to provide a personal guarantee, and there will be no impact on their personal credit scores.
