Amex Business Platinum Annual Wireless Credit - How to use it
To use the Annual Wireless Credit of up to $120, you will need to log into your Business Platinum Card® from American Express online account or via the American Express Canada mobile app.
Then, sign up for the American Express “Up to $120 Annual Wireless Credit” online offer like any other American Express online offer.

Once you’ve registered for the online offer, you can use your Annual Wireless Credit of up to $120 with any eligible mobile service provider.
Pay your monthly bill with the Business Platinum Card® from American Express. In addition to the Annual Wireless Credit, you’ll earn 1.25 points per dollar for your mobile service payment, as is the case with all purchases with the Business Platinum Card® from American Express.
With most mobile service providers, you can prepay your bill for any amount you wish. For example, you could prepay your bill each month for an amount equal to or greater than $10 to benefit from the $10 monthly Wireless credit. And pay the rest of your bill with the credit card of your choice.
Otherwise, to ensure you don’t forget this monthly payment, it’s best to add your Business Platinum Card® from American Express as a pre-authorized payment for your wireless bill!
