To start 2021, American Express is giving a $30 credit when choosing to checkout an online order using PayPal.
See details on this promotion in the giant paragraph at the bottom of their page.
To get the deal, link your American Express Platinum card to your PayPal account:
Log in to PayPal.com or create an account if you do not have one.
On the main screen, click your name in the upper-right of the page, then choose "Account Settings".
On the left side, click "Banks and Cards" or "Money, Banks and Cards"
Choose "link a new card" and enter your American Express Platinum card.
If your Platinum card is already linked to your PayPal account, then you are already enrolled.
When buying from an online store that has PayPal Checkout, choose "PayPal Check Out" and use your American Express Platinum card to pay.
Up to $30 credit per calendar month.
Should work if you make a single $30+ purchase or multiple purchases that total at least $30 in a calendar month.
If you purchase less than $30 through PayPal Checkout, your credit will be up to the amount of your purchases in a calendar month.
Even with this deal, the perks of having a Platinum AmEx card is far lower than in previous years.
Platinum has a lot of travel perks, but are useless if you are not traveling during these days of Covid.
