Monthly statement credits: These benefits expire at the end of this month. Use them now!

Increasingly, more and more cards are offering monthly statement credits. Here’s our overview of cards offering monthly statement credits and our advice on how to get the most out of these credits.

You’re most likely to get the most value out of your monthly statement credits if you have a plan to use them at the start of the month. That said, now is a great time to make a plan to use these credits.

Cards that offer monthly statement credits

Here are the cards that offer monthly statement credits of some sort. Click on a card name to jump to that section and see our tips for using your statement credits.

Why do credit card issues offer so many monthly statement credits?

Credit card issuers love monthly statement credit offers because most people include the total amount of statement credits in their value calculation, but never end up using the credits.

When it comes to a buying decision, people value credits. Amex touts “over $1,500 in value” in its statement credits on the Platinum Card®. If you’re getting $1,500 in value, getting a card with a $695 annual fee doesn’t sound so bad.

But most people don’t use most of their credits. Most monthly credits require you to make a purchase at a certain set of merchants every month. And most credits require you to actively do something in order to get the credit. The upshot is that most credits simply don’t get used.

How to win the statement credit game

To get the most value out your statement credits, you must use them. Our biggest piece of advice here is to track your monthly statement credits and be sure you’re using them. Beyond that, here are a few additional tips:

  • Gift cards. Where the terms and conditions do not prohibit it, purchasing gift cards is often your best bet. If your card offers an office supply store credit and you don’t have, purchase a gift card during the month to bank your credit for later use.
  • Small take-out orders. Cards offering credits for dining are trying to incentivize you to take your family to a restaurant and sit down for a large dinner. But in most cases, you can use your credit for a take-out order of a sandwich for lunch. Don’t let a statement credit cause you to spend money you would otherwise not spend.
  • Set up auto-payment for recurring subscriptions. Most subscription services require auto-payment. offering a Disney+ credit or a Walmart+ credit. Many cards offering statement credits on subscription services require enrollment. Don’t forget to enroll, or you won’t get your credits.
  • Consider Walmart+ as an alternative to Amazon Prime. There are plenty of Amex cards offering a monthly credit for a Walmart+ subscription. But if you replace your Amazon Prime subscription with Walmart+ and can get a statement credit from your card, you’re saving monehy.

Our tips on using the Delta statement credits

Here are our tips on using the Resy and ridesshare statement credits offered on select Delta credit cards:

Resy credit. You can make sure that you’re using your Resy credit by putting a dinner date on the calendar this month. If you have multiple cards with a Resy credit, you can ask your server to split the payment amount so you can run multiple cards and get multiple credits in one go.

Maybe you don’t dine out often and it doesn’t make sense to make purchases that you would otherwise not make just to use a credit. You can probably still get value out of the Resy credit by playing a small take-our order at a fast-casual Resy restaurant and using your eligible card to pay. Additionally, some reddit users have reported being able to use the credit for gift cards at Resy restaurants. If you’re going to do this, just purchase your gift cards on the first day of the month

Rideshare credit. Unlike the Uber Cash credits offered by The Platinum Card® from American Express and the American Express® Gold Card, you can only use the Rideshare credit for rideshare, not Uber Eats. Our best tip is to add this card to your rideshare apps. If you only infrequently use rideshare services, set your card as the default payment method. If your weekly travel patterns have you hopping into Ubers and Lyfts often, add the card and then change the payment method to your eligible Delta card on your first rideshare ride of the month every month.
