AmEx Expands Small Biz Discount to Donuts and Smartphones

The Savings at Work program from American Express, which extends corporate benefits to mid-size businesses, has just announced three new partners that will delight donut fans, among others. American Express is also expanding the discounts offered with several other partners, such as FedEx and Hilton.

Large corporations have long been able to take advantage of discounts offered through corporate partnerships, but smaller companies usually don`t have access to the same cushy deals. Joshua McKay, Vice President of Global Corporate Payments for American Express, said in the press release announcing the expansion of the program, “Mid-size companies have a unique set of needs, and American Express offers a number of valuable solutions and programs, like Savings at Work, that are tailored exclusively for this key group.”

The program was started in 2002 with the idea that suppliers could benefit from the partnerships as well as mid-size companies would, with the opportunity to promote their products and services to a market that sometimes gets lost in the middle. American Express says that “tens of thousands” of companies participate in the program, which is going strong after a decade.

Partners in Savings

The three new partners for the Savings at Work program are:

  • Dunkin’ Donuts – is there any explanation needed? Companies eager to fuel their employees with sugar and caffeine will get a discount on donuts, coffee, sandwiches and more when they use their corporate AmEx card to pay for the purchase, and on top of that, they`ll get a 3 percent rebate on everything they buy from the popular donut chain.
  • Box – this one is a lesser known company among the general public, but IT specialists know that this content management system`s star is on the rise. Box provides a place for companies to store all their content in an information cloud and manage it from any device. Businesses whose employees work remotely, or in different locations, will find this service especially useful, and holders of a corporate AmEx account will save 20 percent on an annual subscription to the service. Companies that use Box include Pandora, Six Flags, and Crocs Footwear.
  • Sprint – Businesses can save up to 20 percent on wireless plans and get discounts on smartphones and other mobile devices. Through June 30, a $175 credit is offered for each wireless number that`s transferred to Sprint. Also, card holders will be able to use Sprint`s user-support system, billed as their “elite servicing unit.”

Bigger and Better

Existing partnerships with Choice Hotels, FedEx, and Hilton Worldwide are also being expanded.

  • Choice Hotels is expanding savings throughout all 11 of their hotel brands and will give AmEx Corporate card holders 15 percent off all hotel bookings made through
  • Hilton Worldwide is giving a discount of eight percent at Hilton Hotels and Resorts, DoubleTree properties, and Embassy Suites. Card holders will also receive elite tier status in the Hilton HHonors loyalty program.
  • FedEx launched two new programs, the FedEx Freight Program and FedEx Earned Discount Program. Both of them give discounts to AmEx corporate members who enroll in the programs.

AmEx VP McKay again, with the final word on the expansion of the Savings at Work program: “By continuing to expand our programs throughout the years, we are able to offer clients an ever-evolving suite of premium solutions to help meet their growth and expense management goals.”
