Card Details

While the American Express Platinum card used to come with a $450 annual fee, it was upgraded last year with added benefits, a metal design and a $100 annual fee increase. The $200 annual Uber credit was perhaps the main addition. Now you can also get free additional Gold Cards, which help you to get even more awesome Amex Offers.

Here’s a list of what this card offers:

  • 5X MR points on airfare booked directly with airlines or through Amex Travel
  • 5X MR points on eligible prepaid hotels booked on amextravel.com
  • 1X MR points on all other purchases
  • Up to $200 in annual Uber savings
  • Receive up to $200 airline fee credit
  • Up to $100 in annual Saks Fifth Avenue credit
  • Fee credit for Global Entry or TSA Precheck: Receive one Global Entry ($100) statement credit or one TSA Precheck ($85) statement credit
  • Access to over 1,200+ airport lounges, including The Centurion lounge, Delta Sky Clubs, Airspace Lounges and Priority Pass Select membership
  • Marriott Bonvoy Gold Status
  • Hilton Gold status
  • Unlimited Boingo internet access
  • No Foreign Transaction Fees


A good opportunity if you have had the card in the past and are targeted for this offer. If you’ve never had the card before then it’s best to wait for a 100K offer. You can check if you are targeted for this one.
