American Express (Amex) has added a host of benefits to its Platinum Card, allowing cardholders to enjoy exclusive access, unique experiences and better service.
Beginning 30 March 2017, the Platinum cardholders will receive exclusive access in the Uber app to a new Uber Rides with Platinum benefit, which offers up to $200 per year in Uber credits for US rides and automatic VIP status where available.
Additionally, the cardholders will receive 5X membership rewards points on eligible hotels booked on amextravel.com. This is in addition to the recently unveiled 5X Membership Rewards points on airfare booked directly with airlines or American Express Travel.
Furthermore, cardholders will get access to an expanded global lounge collection, a new global dining collection, more global events, enhanced mobile servicing options, and all of the other benefits which are currently offered with Platinum card membership.
American Express senior vice president and general manager of global charge products, benefits and services Janey Whiteside said: “Because we’ve built long term relationships with our Platinum Card Members, we have a deep understanding of what they value most about their Membership – access to exclusive experiences, rich travel rewards and superior service.
“We’re elevating the Platinum Card to further deliver in these key areas, while providing new benefits that enhance their lifestyles. We want to ensure that we’re continually exceeding our Card Members’ expectations.”
Besides offering a number of benefits for Platinum Card members, American Express is launching a new, sleek metal card design.
