Besides the huge 100,000 point sign-up bonus, a major reason I got The Enhanced Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN was the 50% points back perk.
Because I’ll get 2 cents per point when I use my AMEX Membership Rewards points to book coach airfare on my selected airline. So picking 1 of the 9 eligible airlines is important to make sure I make the most of this benefit!
Plus, the airline selection matters for earning the Business Platinum’s $200 airline incidental credit.
I decided on Southwest.
