A number of years ago, I wrote about the Chillax benefit for American Express Platinum members when I held the American Express Platinum Credit Card. It has been slightly over two years since my last official credit card with American Express and I have only recently gotten the brand new metal Platinum Card. As such, I decided to revisit the list of merchants and I was pleasantly surprised at how little I had to do to get a free drink (usually it involves buying another).
Since I get in the office at approximately 7:30AM each day, I make it a point to leave work slightly before 5:00PM. While this is great because I get to avoid the crowd and peak hour, I usually find myself sitting at a bar simply to kill time (since people I meet after work typically knock off after 6:00PM). Therefore, getting a free drink after paying for a full-priced one with the Chillax programme makes a lot of sense for me.

The American Express Chillax Program needs no introduction - Platinum (including credit card) members get to enjoy 1-for-1 drinks at some of the best bars and restaurants in Singapore. Just to be clear, this benefit is extended to holders of The Centurion Card, The Platinum Card, The American Express Platinum Reserve Credit Card and The American Express Platinum Credit Card issued in Singapore. Today, Amrith by The Song of India has joined the ranks of the other merchants to offer a similar benefit.
