Amex Platinum Gogo Passes
A few weeks ago I covered the details of a targeted Amex offer for current business card holders to upgrade to a Business Platinum card. Some people got the offer on a Business Gold card while others like me got it on a Business Green card. I covered the full details here, but basically they offered 50,000 points for spending $10,000 on the card in 5 months! I took them up on that.
So now I have my Business Platinum card in hand and am working to maximize the benefits on it. One of the sometimes overlooked benefits on this card is the 10 free Gogo single-use passes per calendar year. If you recently did the upgrade then you’ll want to load them into your Gogo account before your next flight. Since I don’t want to reinvent the wheel, here is a step by step guide to getting them I wrote last year:
More Free Internet
If you travel a lot and haven’t done so already, you also get a free Boingo subscription with many Amex cards. You can sign-up here. I actually find that Boingo hotspots are quite fast and even when I am in places with free WiFi, I’ll choose to use the Boingo network since a lot less people choose it due to the fee.
The Amex Business Platinum card actually has a lot of features and benefits that you might be missing out on. If you aren’t familiar with the card, I recommend going through their site to make sure you have registered for everything. From car rental and hotel elite status to other little perks, there are a number of cool things you are now entitled to. Take advantage of everything! 🙂
