Congrats on the approval. If I traveled often, I surely would have this in the arsenal
CONGRATS @TexasKaren on your AmEx Platinum approval - I will be apping for that one in November!!!
Congratulations!!! Thats that card I'm apping for when I exit the garden next year.
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.
Congrats, it's a lovely card to have. I actually like having a charge card since it keeps me responsible and accountable on paying things fully without the temptation to go overboard
Congrats on the approval - enjoy breaking it in!
