Amex Platinum Benefits

Hello,

 

I just received the American Express platinum card, I was a gold card member, between my wife and I we would charge about $5,000 a month so I got an invitation to upgrade to the platinum card, no credit check or anything I just put my invitation number and agreed to the terms which I thought was great! I was wondering of some added perks that you guys might know about but I dont. I signed up for Priority Pass but is there anything else I do not know about?

 

Thank you all in advance.

I did not see the Global Entry fee reimbursement in the link.

 

Amex platinum $100 rebate is a one time benefit per card . GE is valid for 5 years

 

Global Entry is the US government’s expedited immigration program for frequent travelers.

Also, if you book cruises through their AMEX you get a huge statement credit. I can't remember the amount, it might be $100.
