There are more than a million Boingo Wi-Fi hotspots around the world. They’re at many airports, hotels, cafes, and restaurants. Usually, you have to pay to connect.
But certain AMEX credit cards can get you a free Boingo Wi-Fi membership!
I’ll tell you which AMEX cards are eligible and how to activate free Boingo Wi-Fi!

Folks with certain AMEX credit cards can register for the free Boingo American Express Preferred Plan. This plan includes:

This perk can be great for folks who travel. Because you’ll have lots of places to find Wi-Fi. And you won’t have to worry about roaming charges on your personal device.
Plus, it can save you money. Because airport Wi-Fi can be expensive! For example, purchasing a Boingo Wi-Fi plan can cost ~$39 per month.
