It is a common practice for credit cards to offer valuable rewards and benefits to their cardholders whether it is free upgrades in travel reservations, cash back bonuses, or discounts on certain product categories. If you are currently an American Express cardholder then you might be entitled to a new online shopping benefit for no additional cost.

The credit card giant has just partnered with the popular service ShopRunner which provides free 2-day shipping (similar to Amazon Prime) for over 80 online retailers. The standard price for this members only service is an annual fee of $79/year. Popular online electronics retailers whom take part in the ShopRunner service include Newegg, MacMall, and TigerDirect. It is important to note that not all products on these websites will qualify for 2-day shipping although the majority of them will.

Eligible cardholders should receive an email that has the following offer:

The enrollment process is simple only requiring you to verify ownership of the card then it allows you to create your own ShopRunner account (you also have the option to log into an existing). This is another example of how consumers can receive more value on the dollar without actually spending extra money in the process.
