American Express once again held its annual “Hawks Island” in Seattle on October 1st, hosting several hundred American Express Card Members and American Express-accepting merchants on a 200-foot+ barge (the length of more than two basketball courts) at Pier 66. For the second consecutive year we had the chance to attend this fun pre-game experience. Hawks Island is definitely a must go if you are a casual or diehard Seahawks fan like myself.
It’s old news that traveling during the holidays can be a massive headache. It’s crowded, there are long lines at TSA, and you might be faced with annoying flight delays. Today, American Express and Uber announced that they’re partnering to offer US Card Members some relief by offering 2 free rides home—up to $65/ride—from 11 different airports in the US through 12/31 (Sea-Tac is one of them!).
Special perks for 12s during Seahawks season.
As you may know, American Express partnered with the Seahawks earlier this season (it’s the first existing NFL sponsorship of this scale) to provide a number of different benefits for Card Members and the 12s, including Gridiron Radios (like the ones at the US Open), free Section 12 pre-game experience at Occidental Park, Blue Friday offers with surprise player appearances and others.
