AMEX to Offer Complimentary Calm App Membership
Building off the variety of new, limited-time offers, services and solutions American Express introduced on May 1, all American Express U.S. Consumer and Corporate Card Members will now have complimentary access to a one year Premium membership with Calm, the sleep and meditation app, and half off the following year, if they are not currently Premium subscribers.
Free Calm Premium Membership
This is the first time Calm has made a one-year Premium membership available at no cost. Card Members can visit Calm.com/Amex to enroll in the new offer through September 30, 2020. International Consumer Card Members will also soon have access to this offer with Calm.
Along with a renewed focus on healthy eating, demand for products that support immunity, sleep and stress reduction is on the rise. People continue to look to the indoors and virtual spaces for their wellness needs, as gyms and parks remain closed – driving an increase in usage of virtual workouts and mediation apps and services. At the beginning of March alone, average weekly hours spent on health, fitness and medical apps increased by 30%.
“With many people coping with new and added stress during COVID-19 in their personal and professional lives, we hope this offering with Calm will provide some relief and relaxation during what can be a very challenging and uncertain time,” said Rachel Stocks, executive vice president, global premium products and benefits at American Express, American Express.
“Our partnership with American Express will introduce Calm to millions of people at a time when mental fitness practices are needed the most,” said Calm Chief Product and Growth Officer Dun Wang. “We’re proud to grow this program that’s unique to anything else in the market, encouraging American Express Card Members to live a happier, healthier life.”
