We see the return of Wayfair to Amex Offers. In our household we received the offer on both The Platinum Card and Cobalt Card
and it provides a $20 statement credit when you spend $100 or more by June 30. Remember to initiate your Wayfair purchase via
an online shopping mall to earn extra miles or points! You can find the
details of the offer on our Guide to Amex Offers or by logging in to your Amex account.

American Express has followed Visa and Mastercard’s
lead in increasing tap limits on their cards. Amex is also now allowing
up to $250 per transaction for contactless payments. The latest statement from Mastercard shows a 40% jump in contactless payments in the first quarter so it nice to see Amex do this as well.
