April 20 Update: Amex Platinum cardmembers to receive annual travel credit replacement, WestJet removes more domestic flights for May, up to 3x cash back with Rakuten

An email was sent out to The Platinum Card from American Express cardmembers late Friday afternoon with their first news about extending benefits that aren't really usable right now. This first bit of news lets cardmembers know that if they haven't used their $200 annual travel credit and it was set to expire between January and September of this year you'll receive a replacement credit. Cardmembers don't have to do anything as American Express will reach out with details on how the replacement will be added to your account.
