AMEx Platinum with EMV is here !

Got it in the mail this morning and it looks pretty good. Well the chip, the card has stayed the same.

 

I found it easier to have this card with the EMV while in Europe.

Re: AMEx Platinum with EMV is here !

If you dont mind me asking CS what much do you run though the Plat a year and do you get the max benefit from it for the high AF?

I don't see much reason to run money through the Plat. 1PT/$1 unless you are willing to pay more to book travel through AMEX, and the transfer opportunities could be better. Benefits are good though.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:21

Sure thing. I use it mostly for business travel where we also have to buy equipment and materials, rent conference rooms and I generally have to buy the tickets and the hotel for my group  and it's generally a group travel. Last year (Jan-Dec 2010) I put about $70K on it.

 

I use the concierge a lot and their travel services also. The priority pass is great and the airline credit couple that with the credit they give you when you apply for Global Entry; can't beat that. The concierge has been great for last minute reservations.

Yes :smileyhappy:

I did weigh the AF versus the benefits but as long as I travel, this card makes sense. Once my travels go down I will PC to the PRG or just use the CSP.

If you enjoy lounge access and have a good use for MR points. It makes more sense to have both the PRG and the Plat.

Re: AMEx Platinum with EMV is here !

FOr right now I can justify the AF on the Plat. I think if the travels go way down, I'll switch to the PRG. I already have the BCE for the 321 category.
