I know, I know, think credit cards and you probably think mailings, paying bills…and a bunch of other pretty boring stuff. But American Express goes above and beyond something you swipe at the grocery store, offering tons of access and great perks for its members. One of American Express’ greatest offers is a backstage pass—virtually at amexskyboxreport.com or on-site if you’re a Platinum/Gold Cardmember—for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Shecky’s stopped by American Express’ Skybox at fashion week and got amazing views of the shows—without having to peep over the heads of countless editors, photographers and style mavens. Jessica Igoe, VP of Global Sponsorship and Event Marketing at American Express, perfectly described the American Express Skybox as a “cocoon” from the manic hustle and bustle of fashion week. And with champagne to sip and sweet goodies to munch while we relaxed and enjoyed those stellar runway views, plus chances to cross paths with celebs like Tim Gunn, Christian Siriano, Joe Zee, Brad Goreski, Adam Lippes, Christian Cota and Steven Kolb, she couldn’t have been more right on.
The American Express Skybox is just one of the fun perks you’ll get if you choose to be a member. Work your way up to a premium American Express card and get membership rewards redeemable for travel, shopping, dining and entertainment, as well as exclusive-access tickets to concerts, shows, sporting events and more! For us busy businesswomen, there are even perks on everyday stuff like gas and FedEx.
Even better, there’s a card out there no matter your financial or business situation. American Express offers cards to help small or start-up businesses (something Shecky’s is 100-percent behind!). The Skybox also supports emerging designers, with all proceeds from Skybox packages donated to CVFF, a program of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).
