This year, Amex rolled out a new temporary PayPal credit for The Platinum Card from American Express. From January through June 2021, you can receive up to a $30 credit per month when you use the Amex Platinum to pay via PayPal.

Some have requested the ability to make monthly payments to use the credit across multiple months so they can support Straight To The Points and get their first year of STTP Premium for free. While this will require more administrative work on my part, here’s what we can do.

You can pay $30 per month for 6 months (January through June). After the AMEX Platinum $30 credit is applied each month, this will all be free for you! Your Premium membership will be converted to an annual membership once the 6th payment is made. This will add an additional 12 months to your membership bringing you to a total of 18 months.

If you’ve already used your January PayPal credit, you will still end up getting your first year for $30 which is less than half of the promotional launch rate of $79 and less than one-third of the standard $99 per year rate.

This offer expires on January 25, 2021.

Alternatively, you can simply get $30 off the annual Premium membership.
