Expert Reviews

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 a slew of services, perks and warranty extensions every card owner would want. 

To start, there’s a limited time offer where card holders can receive 40,000 Membership Points® after spending $5,000 in purchases in the first 3 months of card membership. American Express Platinum Card members have access to three complimentary airport lounge programs; Centurion Lounges, Delta Sky Clubs®, and Airspace Lounges. Card members who are enrolled in Priority Pass™ Select have access to over 700 domestic and international lounges.

Cardholders can earn 1 point per dollar spent on eligible purchases and 2 points per dollar spent on eligible purchases on the American Express Travel website.* Like most AMEX cards, card members will also receive free room upgrades, breakfast for two, and other hotel perks at 600+ hotels worldwide. 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 Bottom Line

The Business Platinum Card is loaded with exclusive rewards and benefits simply for being a card member. The rewards points could be a little stronger, but perhaps that would change the number of perks you receive with this card. If business travel is commonplace for you, the $450 annual fee should balance out all the perks that come with this card, again, depending on how you plan to use this card.

The Good

Card members receive great travel perks like airport lounge access to over 700 airport lounges 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.
