There is a strong consensus that the Chase Sapphire Reserve is the best overall premium card in the market, however, the Amex Platinum still earns a place on many premium travel card toolkits. There are 2 wrong reasons for having this card. The first is because you have had it forever even if you do not maximize its perks. The second, if you have this card to impress and nothing else.
What’s great about this card?
- Automatic gold Status with Hilton, SPG/Marriott/Ritz-Carlton
- Centurion lounge/SkyClub access
- $200 Uber credit
- 5X on prepaid hotels and airfare
- Concierge service
This card outshines all other premium cards in the above 5 areas. It is possible that you can not take advantage of all 5, but can still get great value from paying the $550 annual fee.
