I currently hold the (non-Delta) American Express Business Platinum card. Yes it has a hefty fee of $695 per year but many years I get that entire fee back in Amex Offers like the very impressive ones currently available. Take a look:
This is a very good offer. You do NOT have spend all $1000 at once but can spread it out over a number of payments either online or over the phone to get $350 cash back. Also keep in mind if you and your +1 each have a card (or a number of cards) you can make a number of $1000 payments and get a number of credits!
The Holland America offer has much tighter restrictions than the NCL offer, but still if you can make a $1000 booking payment you are still reaping a cash back $300 credit.
Lastly we have a smaller cash back offer but also much lower spend threshold for a Carnival Cruise. While not a big Carnival fan, they are cheap and with this offer become even cheaper!
Do keep in mind you must activate offers like these by logging in to Amex and adding them to your card before you make a purchase.
I have a number of cruises I am planning on taking in 2023 and am going to see just how many of these outstanding credits I can take advantage of in addition to stacking a bunch of other deals and offers! – René

Great post Rene!
Unfortunately I think this is a targeted offer. I just checked my card and nothing comes up like this offer in my list of offers. Any way to get them to add it?
@Jerry – I have checked with a bunch of friends and all have it. Confirming you hold the BUSINESS can not the PERSONAL as these seem only to be on the biz cards.
My personal/consumer Amex Platinum card received the offer — as did all three of my authorized users.
Where ya taking me, René? 😉
@Chris – Sigh. But sweet it is showing up on both personal and biz (just targeted).
Business platinum from AmEx (Im a friend too!)
@Jerry – Well humm… And yes you are an old friend (not that I am calling you old)! 😉
I have not seen it recently on our cards…maybe later.
