If you have an American Express corporate card through your employer, you’ve hopefully linked it to your personal Membership Rewards account. While Amex charges $90 to do so, most people charge enough for work to make that worth while.

But here’s a new reason to pay to link it…

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

The Corporate Advantage Program

One you call and enroll, you’ll get a statement credit on the following four personal Amex cards:

The Platinum gets a $150 annual statement credit, the Gold gets a $100 annual credit, the Green gets a $75 annual credit and the Blue Cash Preferred gets a $50 annual credit. Yes, you can get all four!

While you can apply via the program to get the personal cards, there’s no benefit and you can just as easily link a card you already have or apply for.

For the last three, that’s in the ballpark of half your annual fee.

My wife has a corporate Green card, so we called up to see how easy this is. I wondered if the rep would even know what we were talking about.

We called the number on the back of her Corporate card and when the rep answered, she stated that she wanted to enquire about the Corporate Advantage program and believed she should be eligible for a $100 credit on her Gold card and a $75 credit on her Green card. The rep said she could see the cards were linked and asked for just a moment to place her on hold. She came back fairly quickly and confirmed her eligibility. I had my wife ask if this was one-time or annual and the rep confidently stated this is an annual benefit for as long as she has the corporate card and either of her personal cards and she would not have to call in each year to get it.

It could not have been easier.

A HUGE Hat Tip to Danny the Deal Guru for posting about this earlier this week.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.


I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
