On this months American Express statement you will find notice that effective 1/1/2020 American Express will be dropping major card benefits (summary below). Called to upgrade my card to a different one that might still have these benefits but learned that none of their cards (not blue, not green, not gold, not platinum) will offer these benefits after 1/1/2020. Extended warranty and buyer protection always made Amex the go to card for my major purchases; but not anymore!
These Amex Benefits will be discontinued effective 1/1/2020:
-Roadside Assistance Hotline (used to be able to call and get a tow for cheap if not free)
-Travel Accident Insurance (used to cover loss due to serious injury while traveling)
-Extended Warranty (used to double the warranty up to an additional year for an item purchased with the card)
-Purchase Protection (used to cover damage or theft of an item purchased with the card)
-Return Protection (used to permit the return of an item up to 90 days regardless of store policy)
The only benefit they seem to be keeping is the car rental insurance coverage.
