American Express is offering a deal that may send some good vibes to stressed-out customers.

For a limited time, AmEx consumer and corporate cardholders can get a free year of Calm Premium, plus half off the subscription for the following year. Terms apply. Calm is a sleep, relaxation and mediation app that offers audio programming including guided meditations, nature sounds and bedtime stories. A selection of Calm’s content is available for free, but a Calm Premium subscription gives users access to the app’s entire content library.

Ordinarily, a Calm Premium subscription costs $69.99 per year.

You must subscribe at by Sept. 30, 2020, to receive the offer. The offer is open only to eligible cardholders who do not currently have an active Calm Premium membership, and American Express Business cards are not eligible.

The partnership with Calm is one of several wellness-related perks AmEx is offering right now. For example, through Aug. 16, 2020, eligible cardholders can also get a free two-month trial to obé fitness, a platform that provides live and on-demand fitness classes. Terms apply. A subscription is normally $27 per month.
