The American Express Platinum card offers huge benefits for its cardholders.
Last Tuesday (rather late at night), I applied and was approved for the American Express Platinum. I was instantly approved. Two days later as I was having dinner, a UPS truck pulled up to my house. To my surprise, the card had arrived.
The card comes with a $550 annual fee, the benefits more than cancel out the annual fee. The fee is supposedly waived for active military. I applied for the benefit and am waiting for a response from American Express.
60,000 Membership Rewards points (after spending $5,000 in the first three months)
$200 Uber credit ($15 per month, $20 bonus in December)
Lounge Access (Centurion Club, Delta Sky Club, and Priority Pass clubs)
Gold status at Hilton (includes free wifi, 20% bonus on all base points, space available upgrades, etc)
Global Entry or TSA Precheck credit
Complimentary Boingo wifi (over 1 million wifi spots worldwide)
American Express Concierge (can assist with restaurant reservations and many travel related issues)
I am excited to have this card. I should not have waited to apply for it, but I am happy that I finally did.
