If you’re an American Express Platinum Card Member, you’re in for a treat! Today, American Express announced a new benefit for card members: a $400 dining credit each year you hold the card.

How does it work?

The dining credit will be split into 2; this means you get $200 credit at a range of restaurants in Australia and $200 at selected venues around the world.
The list and countries are extensive and include over 1,400 restaurants across 20 countries. Each restaurant is hand-selected by the American Express Platinum team so expect to see high-end dining destinations only.

You can see the full list of participating restaurants here.

How to activate the Amex Platinum dining credit?

The dining credit is available to all American Express Platinum Card Members; all you need to do is head over to your account online or via the Amex App and enroll for the offer.

Once enrolled, you can pay the bill using your Platinum Card and expect a credit back.

How about Platinum Business?

Unfortunately, this offer isn’t available to Platinum Business members.
