[Rumor] New Benefits On The American Express Platinum
American Express made significant changes to their Platinum cards on March 30th, 2017 including a $200 annual Uber credit and an increase of $100 on the annual fee on the personal variations in response to the Chase Sapphire Reserve. According to an OMaaT reader who works at a property that participates in the Fine Hotels & Resorts program American Express plans to make the following changes in early 2018:
- Fine hotels & resorts bookings will earn 5x points
- You’ll be able to use Pay With Points on fine hotels & resorts. Keep in mind the business Platinum offers a 35% rebate on pay with points bookings
Obviously this is just a rumor and I have no idea how reliable this source is. It’s also possible they plan to add additional benefits that aren’t related to fine hotels & resorts and we wouldn’t be aware of these due to the nature of the source. One can only hope they don’t increase the annual fee again as well.
