Amex Business Platinum Review – $450 for up to 100k points, big perks and flight value


Lots of airport lounge access. Get into all Amex Centurion lounges, Delta SkyClubs, and Priority Pass lounges.

35% of your points back gets you decent value for flights. Whenever you book flights through American Express Travel with your points, you’ll get 35% of your points back on one airline of your choice each year for all flights. And if you book first or business class tickets, you’ll get the 35% points back for all airlines available through American Express Travel – no need to stick with just one.

10 free Gogo wifi passes. Save big on inflight internet every year. Plus you get access to all Boingo wifi hotspots in airports and other places around the world.

Starwood and Hilton Gold status. So you can lock in better rooms and late checkout at thousands of hotels worldwide.

A $200 annual airline fee credit. Use it for bag fees, change fees, and other incidental airline fees on one airline you designate each year.


$450 annual fee. This is probably not for you if you don’t travel often and won’t make use of the airline lounge access.

Slow point earning. While the signon bonus is good, there are no category bonuses for your spending. It’s a straight 1 point per dollar spent, though you do earn 1.5x points per dollar whenever you make a purchase of $5,000 or more.
