APPROVED! American Express Card Art

Welcome to Platinum Card® Membership! We're excited that you have chosen American Express again.

 

I pumped my fists and celebrated like I hit a game winning basket.  I called my wife and she was unenthused like "really, so you got another credit card. I hope you didn't apply and get me one."  Just killed my happy moment so I am reaching out to my forum family. 

 


Congrats on the approval!  So funny about your wife, mine is the same way!  🤣🤣

Great card.  Since I fly out of Vegas, I especially like having access to the Centurion Lounge.

I wouldn't leave home without it. (someone had to say it)
