Amex Platinum Business Might Be the Most Valuable Card to Own
American Express Business Card might be the MVP of cards. It has a $450 annual fee which is usually the off putting aspect of the card. The cost is actually reasonable.
When opening the card I was offered for, I received a 150,000 membership points bonus. That alone is worth over $1,000 in travel.
So we already are on top paying the fee but there's more!
Amex Platinum gives you a $100 credit for Global Entry
Also, 10 GoGo Wifi passes
Centurion Lounge and priority pass lounges access
Status at Starwood hotels, Hilton hotels and National Rentacar
And cant forget the $200 annual (Calendar Year) incidental credit. This credit can actually get you amazon gift cards through the MPX United app. You must make United your designated airline.
If you prefer American Airlines over United but still want Amazon gift cards, you can change your preferred airline in January.
So ideally you do this:
Open the card in December. Select United as your airline. Buy $200 Amazon Gift cards on the United MPX app. Wait until January and repeat the purchase of $200 Amazon Gift Cards and then once you get credited, you change the airline to American before February.
