Check Out the AMEX Business Platinum Card
A business card with super-sized benefits, the Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN offers members the chance to earn loads of bonus points and discounts on the services they use the most. The card has an award-winning reward program that pays a twenty-percent bonus on travel purchased with reward points, and also offers 25,000 points if the cardholder spends $5,000 in the first three months. It also gives one point for every dollar spent on regular purchases and two points for purchases on travel.
The rewards are even greater if the purchases are made through one of the card’s more than 300 partners, and can reach as high as ten points per dollar spent. Rewards include options to purchase essentials that businesses use every day, along with great gift ideas for clients. The points never expire and there are no limits, which is just plain convenient for the cardholder.
The Business Platinum Card also gives members some great advantages when traveling. American Express offers free baggage insurance when travel tickets are purchased with the card. Its premium car rental program lets them skip paperwork and get automatic upgrades, and even picks up the tab for collision insurance, allowing cardholders to save some money. Cardholders can also get upgrades, complimentary breakfast and late checkout at hotel partners. They even get amenities unique to each hotel, like free massages or credits for dinner at local restaurants.
The Platinum Office Program offers other help to business members on the road. It gives access to 1,000 business lounges across the globe, and a 24-hour hotline offers legal, medical, financial or emergency assistance when they are away from home.
There is no interest rate associated with the card, as balances are due with each statement. It comes with a $450 annual fee, but unlike many other business cards it waives fees for foreign transactions.
