From the CompareCards.com Editorial Team

American Express is known by many customers for their selectivity and premium card membership perks. The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN is no different, offering many services, perks and warranty extensions every card owner would want.

To start, there is an excellent Welcome Offer that allows cardholders to receive up to 75,000 Membership Points®; you earn 50,000 points after spending $10,000 and an extra 25,000 points after you spend an additional $10,000 all on qualifying purchases within your first 3 months of Card Membership. American Express Platinum Card members have access to three complimentary airport lounge programs; with the American Express Global Lounge Collection cardholders will have access to almost any airport lounge in the world.

Cardholders can earn 1 point per dollar spent on eligible purchases and 5x points per dollar spent on eligible purchases on the American Express Travel website. When you make purchases of $5,000 or more you'll earn 1.5 points per dollar on up to 1 million bonus points per year. The staggering annual fee of $450 is something you need to weigh when deciding if this card is right for you and your business.

The Good
  • Card members receive great travel perks like airport lounge access and $200 airline fee credit annually to use incidental air travel fees. Additionally, card holders will enjoy purchase and return protection, extended warranty on purchases, and concierge service.
The Not so Good
  • This card isn’t for the non-traveler or the businessman who’s strictly looking for working capital. Again, the annual fee is $450, but if your credit is good enough to get approved, the perks could really be worth it.
The Bottom Line

The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN is loaded with exclusive rewards and benefits simply for being a card member. If business travel is commonplace for you, the rewards and perks of this card should out weigh the $450 annual fee, depending on how you plan to use this card.
