Thanks to reader Charlie Lux (who came out to visit me for dinner a few months ago) in alerting me to the end of the Mercedes-Benz card from American Express. Who knows what card this will become? The article can be found here on frequent miler. This is certainly a sad day for me because I have become accustomed to getting $200 in MB schwag every year! I was even considering getting the Credit version in the hopes of upgrading the card to another MB Platinum with $100 in MB stuff.
If you haven’t gotten the Charge or Credit version of the card for 60k and 10k respectively then I would go ahead and take advantage before the card goes away in Jan 2019!
Then go ahead and buy a new Benz for some sweet 5x points, it is entirely possible to buy a whole car on an AmEx Plat!
Thank You LCDR Lux for the great intel!
