So Excited. Amex Platinum!

I'm SO excited.  With a little help from some of the awesome folks over on the credit card applications board, I learned about applying for the Amex Platinum using the incognito mode on my browser, got approved in minutes, and once I spend $5,000 (in three months) will have 75,000 points to use.  This is in time for an upcoming trip to Europe which will help me spend that $5K, and get some cool benefits like lounge access at the airport.  This is my first "high end" credit card. If you'd asked me even five years ago if I ever thought I'd have a charge card that has to be paid off every month, and has a $550 annual fee to boot I'd have said you were nuts.

Wait until you get that Platinum welcome box Smiley Happy

 

Really feel like a baller haha. Congrats on that wonderful charge card. I initially upgraded my green to Platinum after one year, but I wound up downgrading it to the Gold just because my travel schedule wasn't worth it, but if you're doing some traveling that is how to travel in style. 

 

AMEX will treat you well and enjoy those lounges!

I agree, within another probably 24hrs you'll have the platinum box arrive (Flip it over and it's a cell phone stand.) . Enjoy the perks, it's an amazing card when utilized well!  I love mine, minus the annual fee that's about to renew lol.
