It’s no secret that The Platinum Card® from American Express is one of the top credit cards for travel out there. I’ve written about it before at some length, and earlier this month, travel expert Joe Brancatelli echoed the sentiment in a nice piece on how to pick the right credit cards. Joe writes:

“The American Express Platinum card remains indispensable for business travelers. Carp about the $450 annual fee if you must, but the card includes more valuable travel perks and privileges than you can buy with three times that amount. Platinum confers elite-status recognition at Starwood and Hilton hotels and at National Car Rental locations. It reimburses your fee for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck. It’ll kick back $200 annually in airline ancillary charges, too. You’ll also get complimentary Boingo WiFi coverage worldwide. And Amex Platinum is the key to free entry at 800 airport lounges from Albania to Zimbabwe, including Amex’s proprietary and much-admired Centurion Lounges.”

In the piece, Joe also named the Amex Platinum Card his “best card for travel perks,” for the reasons above. If you’re looking for a new card, a nice point bonus or just easier travel, make sure you give the Amex Platinum a look. Here’s my write-up for more on why I think it’s so great—and thanks, Joe, for the reminder!
