The Platinum Card from American Express

Editor's Note: This offer expired and is no longer available.

American Express built its reputation on executive travel, which could explain why the company overhauled The Platinum Card from American Express with a raft of perks that rival the best airline credit cards. Platinum Card Concierge services can help you navigate an unfamiliar city, with hard-to-get restaurant reservations and event tickets.

Since many frequent flyers hunt for low fares at the expense of airline loyalty, the Platinum Card mimics the perks you used to get with "elite" status. No foreign transaction fees no matter what country you are in. American Express Membership Rewards program makes the Platinum Card even more attractive. And this is a charge card so all charges made on this card are due and payable when you receive your monthly statement.
