Business owners as always looking for ways to reduce shipping costs. One new way to reduce your FedEx shipping spend easily was recently introduced by American Express. Businesses can earn 15% back as an AMEX statement credit each time they use an enrolled business card to purchase qualifying services with FedEx. These savings are limited to $1000 on deliveries completed by November 30, 2018.
To start earning these credits, you need to enroll your business credit card at americanexpress.com/doingmorebusiness. Any payments then made with the enrolled credit card for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground will automatically earn a 15% statement credit. These savings are not available for shipments that are invoiced, international duties or taxes, or packages shipped at a FedEx Office or an authorized shipping center (ASO).
Statement credits will appear on the AMEX billing statement within 90 days after November 30th. Shipping transactions must be made with FedEx shipping manager, shipping manager lite, or through a FedEx compatible solution provider such as Shipworks or ShipStation.
The services eligible for this program are as follows.
