Amex offers an array of cards with significant benefits sure to appeal to many consumers. These benefits, of course, come with a fee that with certain cards can be quite hefty. However, as we point out here, they may be quite worth the expense, depending on your needs and preference. One such card goes by the brand Platinum and it is loaded with features. In addition, there is an excellent one time welcome award when you first get approved for the account.
- As a welcome offer, you can earn 100,000 Membership Rewards Points after spending $6,000 on purchases in the first 6 months.
- The card has a high annual fee of $695, compared to $250 for the American Express Gold Card.
- The Platinum Card also has many statement credits, such as up to $25 per month for digital entertainment and up to $300 per year for SoulCycle.
“AmEx will check your welcome offer eligibility when you apply for a card — even before checking your credit.”
