The best American Express Blue Card benefits include 2 points / $1 on travel purchases, protections for purchases and returned items, and car rental insurance. This card also offers $0 fraud liability protection and monthly credit bureau reporting, which are relatively common benefits for credit cards.
Here are the best American Express Blue Card benefits:
- Points for Every Purchase: Earn 2 points per $1 spent on travel booked through amextravel.com, and 1 point per $1 spent on all other purchases.
Points redeemable for merchandise, dining and entertainment, gift cards and more. You can also spend them on flights, hotels, cruises, or other travel-related expenses. Points do not expire as long as the account remains active.
- Purchase Protection: Covers eligible purchases from theft and accidental damage for up to 90 days. Covered for $1,000 per incident up to $50,000 per calendar year.
- Car rental insurance: Pays eligible benefits not already paid by any primary insurance. Covers eligible rental vehicles for first 30 days against damage and theft up to a maximum of $50,000 with some restrictions.
- Global Assist Hotline: Whenever you travel more than 100 miles from home, you are eligible for 24/7 emergency assistance, including medical, legal, and passport referrals, emergency cash wires, and missing luggage assistance.
Note that exclusions and coverage limits apply to many of these benefits, so make sure to check your American Express Blue Card’s guide to benefits for more details on each type of insurance.
