For the past few months, there has been an Amex Platinum 100K offer going on for The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN.  The “normal” offer for this card has been 40,000 Membership Rewards points, so this Amex Platinum 100K offer is more than twice the normal amount.  You do have to spend quite a bit to get the offer (50,000 points for $5000 in spend, then an additional 50,000 points for an additional $10,000 in spend, all in the first 3 months of having the card).

So with the Amex Platinum 100K offer on The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN newly increased, here are 11 reasons to consider getting the Amex Platinum 100K offer

13 reasons to consider the The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN 100K offer

  1. $200 Airline credit each CALENDAR year (so you can use it twice for the first annual fee).  In the past, airline gift cards have worked to trigger this credit but there have been reports that this is no longer working
  2. Priority Pass lounge access (SEE: How to access Priority Pass lounges with no card)
  3. Hilton Gold and Marriott Gold elite status
  4. Amex Platinum roadside assistance
  5. Amex Centurion Lounge access (with 2 guests) (SEE:  AmEx Centurion Lounge Las Vegas Airport review)
  6. Access to Delta Skyclubs when flying Delta (SEE: Skyclub showdown: MSP Delta lounge vs. CVG Delta lounge)
  7. Free Global Entry credit (includes pre-check) – $100 value
  8. Free Boingo Wifi access
  9. Pay with Points – you get a 35% rebate when you pay with points
  10. 1 year of Platinum Global Access from WeWork
  11. 50% more points (1.5x Membership Rewards) on each eligible purchase over $5,000
  12. 5X Membership Rewards® points on flights and prepaid hotels
  13. Access to the Fine Hotels & Resorts (FHR) program

And that’s not even counting the actual 100,000 Membership Rewards points that you’ll get by meeting the signup bonus criteria!  Yes, there is a $595 annual fee, which is NOT waived the first year, so you’ll need to weigh that against these 13 benefits to the Amex Platinum 100K offer, but it is still a very strong offer to consider.  I already have a Platinum card already so I won’t be getting one, but I’m thinking about signing up my wife for one!

As always, I feel like I must repeat my mantra that you should NOT sign up for the Amex Platinum 100k offer (or ANY credit card) just because some guy on the Internet says that it’s a good idea.  Do your research, weigh the pros and cons and figure out what makes sense for you and your family.
