American Express and Mercedes-Benz have set the wheels in motion. They have teamed together to launch their two new co-brand credit cards. Mercedes-Benz credit card from American Express and Platinum Card from American Express Exclusively for Mercedes-Benz will be made available to Mercedes Benz drivers. Cardmembers will earn and redeem points, which can be used for features such as a reward certificate for Mercedes-Benz accessories, a $500 off certificate towards lease options, points for gas purchases, restaurants, and shopping. In his statement, Geoff Robinson, vice president of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, said, “becoming a cardmember will expand the ownership experience for our current drivers and encourage aspiring owners to consider Mercedes-Benz for their next vehicle.” Hopefully, for Mercedes-Benz future drivers, the co-credit cards will be a step closer to owning the car of their dreams.
