I’m pretty sure this happened on November 18 but maybe it was sooner but I noticed Skip The Dishes now codes as dining on The Platinum Card®
from American Express. This means Skip orders will earn 3 points per
dollar rather than the previous 1 point per dollar. Maybe one of our
eagle eyed readers knows better as to when Amex updated this? (I’d like to double check my own purchases but for the past week Amex’s site just give me an error when trying to look at transactions) Here’s the error I get on three different browsers and via the app:
