"This card is an ultra-premium card. Current welcome offer includes earning 10x points at U.S. Gas Stations and U.S. Supermarkets up to $15,000 in combined purchases, during your first 6 months. High annual fee, but well worth it for those frequent travelers who can get instant hotel status and airport lounge access. Some of my friends love the hotel deals that come with the Platinum card, too. For many, the benefits will far outweigh the high annual fee. You can earn 5X points for flights booked directly with airlines or with American Express Travel and 5X for prepaid hotels booked through American Express Travel. This card also comes with a $200 Airline Fee Credit; Up to $200 a year in baggage fees and more at one qualifying airline; Up to $200 for Uber rides annually; Up to $100 in credits annually for purchases at Saks Fifth Avenue; up to $100 fee reimbursement for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck; Airport lounge benefits; Rental car elite status. Marriott Bonvoy Gold status; Hilton HHonors Gold status; and Free Boingo wifi. Overall, it's jam packed with benefits for the frequent traveler who enjoys luxury." - Zac
