The Amex Platinum Card, introduced in 1984, has established itself as a symbol of prestige and a benchmark for premium credit cards. Aimed at frequent travellers and those who seek a luxurious lifestyle, the Platinum Card was one of the first to offer a comprehensive suite of travel benefits and lifestyle perks that cater to an “affluent clientele,” including point maximizers. This post is for existing U.S. Platinum cardholders.

American Express (U.S.) is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Platinum Card with a series of special offers and experiences. Here’s a look at some of the highlighted benefits that are available for a limited time.

  • Complimentary 3rd Night at Select Hotels: Platinum Card Members can extend their stays without extra cost with a complimentary third night at select Fine Hotels + Resorts® and The Hotel Collection properties. This offer is valid when booking through American Express Travel.

I am a big fan of the outsized benefits and perks of the Amex Platinum card. Holding a Platinum Card isn’t just about the practical benefits for many. It’s a status symbol. Its hefty annual fee and generous reward rates complement the card’s distinctive metal design, underscoring its exclusivity. If you are an existing cardholder, your summer has just started on a Platinum note!
