Our Review:   Review of the AMEX Business Platinum Card

The limited-time offer on the AMEX Business Platinum card is ending August 8, 2018.  That’s tomorrow for all you calendarologists!

When you apply for this offer, you’ll earn:

  • 50,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points after you spend $10,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening.
  • 50,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points after you spend an additional $15,000 on qualifying purchases within the same timeframe

AMEX Membership Rewards points are popular transferable points to collect.  Because you get flexibility to redeem points for award travel with any of the 19 AMEX airline or hotel partners.

With the AMEX Business Platinum card, you’ll also get:

  • 1.5X AMEX Membership Rewards points on single purchases of $5,000+ (up to 1 million additional points per calendar year)
  • 5X AMEX Membership Rewards points when you book airfare and prepaid hotels through the AMEX travel portal
  • 35% of your points back for ALL First Class or Business Class flights booked through the AMEX travel portal using Pay With Points
  • 35% of your points back for all flights, including coach tickets, booked with your selected airline through the AMEX travel portal using Pay With Points (up to 500,000 total combined AMEX points rebated per calendar year)
  • Up to $200 in statement credits per calendar year for airline incidentals with your selected airline (luggage fees, in-flight food & drink, etc.)
  • Ability to book hotel stays through AMEX Fine Hotels & Resorts
  • AMEX Platinum Concierge
  • AMEX Premium Roadside Assistance
  • Access to airport lounges (Delta, Priority Pass, Escape Lounges, Airspace, and American Express Centurion Lounges)
  • Bonus points or statement credits when taking advantage of an AMEX Offer
  • Rental car privileges with Avis, National, and Hertz
  • Free Hilton Honors Gold elite status (free breakfast and upgrades when available)
  • Free Starwood Gold elite status, which you can use to instantly match to Marriott Gold elite status
  • 10 free Gogo in-flight Wi-Fi passes each calendar year
  • Statement credit for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck (up to $100 every 4 years)
  • Terms & limitations apply

This card has a $450 annual fee, which is NOT waived the first year.  But the statement credits, airport lounge access, and savings from AMEX Offers can easily offset the fee.

I’ve held onto this card for 2+ years because I’ve always found value in paying the annual fee to continue taking advantage of the card’s perks!  I recently spent a weekend in San Francisco, and had a blast pampering myself by using the AMEX Fine Hotels & Resorts program, a benefit that comes with the card.

Bottom Line

You can currently earn up to 100,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points after meeting tiered minimum spending requirements with the AMEX Business Platinum card.  But you must apply by tomorrow, August 8, 2018.

This is a great deal, because the points you’ll earn from the welcome offer and minimum spending are worth up to $1,900 towards select air travel paid for with points through the AMEX travel portal.  And potentially MUCH more if you know the best ways to use AMEX Membership Rewards points!

For example, the intro offer alone is more than enough points for a one-way Business Class ticket to Europe, which can easily cost $2,500+!

Plus, applying for this card will NOT hurt your chances of being approved for any Chase cards you might want.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this big offer for the AMEX Business Platinum card?

I wish I had not already had this card before. I would love to get it again. UGH!

What does AMEX do to check to see if you have an actual business when you are using a social security number to apply as a sole proprietor?

In my experience, I haven’t been asked for any additional documentation. However, it’s possible they could request information to verify the business.

I have offer for 75K MR points after $10K spend (50K for $5K spend and another 25K for add’l 5K spend). Is it worth it to go with public offer for addl 25K MR, but with addl $15K spend? Thanks.

That’s a crazy spend amount in 6 mo @ 25k total. I’d have to shuffle a lot of my spending to meet it. Not a good offer for most people.

If you have large upcoming purchases, the larger public bonus can be worth it. You’ll essentially earn at least 40,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points (25,000 extra bonus points + at least 15,000 points from minimum spending).
