The Amex Platinum is the best travel credit card you can sign up for. Check out the list below to see all the benefits I get (and you can too!) including FREE FLIGHTS, unlimited Centurion Lounge access, Uber Rides, Audible memberships, and more.



Since I got this card in Summer of 2022, I have traveled to Italy and got flights for my Japan trip next year for FREE. Not to mention I now get upgraded every time I stay at a Marriott or Hilton Hotel, get access - with a guest! - to hundreds of airport lounges across the world, including the amazing Centurion Lounges (free massage, anyone?), Uber credits, 5X points on travel, free Audible membership, free checked bags at select airlines, yearly $100 Saks Credit and more. The list of benefits is actually kind of insane! 🤯 

The annual fee for the American Express Platinum Card is a bit hefty, coming in at $695 for the year. But I would say I have gotten at least $1,500 worth of flights and other benefits just in the last 6 months, so it's definitely worth the splurge! Think of it as an investment. 

Here's a full list of benefits you will get with your new Amex Platinum Card:


  • Earn 100,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $6,000 on purchases on your new Card in your first 6 months of Card Membership. Apply and select your preferred metal Card design: classic Platinum Card®, Platinum x Kehinde Wiley, or Platinum x Julie Mehretu.
