The Platinum Card® from American Express may have a $550 annual fee (see rates and fees), but it doesn’t take much to get much more than that in value from its perks. This card ranks consistently as number one for perks for travelers, and with a strong welcome offer of 75,000 Membership Rewards points after $5,000 spent in the first six months — which TPG values at $1,500), it’s one of the cards I never leave home without.
To ensure you’re getting full value from all the benefits, familiarize yourself with these key features. Here are 15 of the top perks to focus on to make sure you’re getting maximum value from this premium card.
