The Platinum Card from American Express helps provide the well-rounded benefits you need for your upcoming travel. When you spend $6,000 on your card within the first six months, you will receive 125,000 points. To help you save on extra fees, there is a $200 annual airline fee credit to cover incidental travel fees, plus a $189 credit for CLEAR® security benefits. Each year, you can receive a $200 hotel credit in statement credits for certain prepaid hotel stays (minimum two-night stay required) when you book through American Express Travel. There is up to $200 in Uber Cash for rides or eats, your choice, plus $300 back on your Equinox membership.
To keep you entertained during your travels, there is a digital entertainment credit that is worth $240 and covers many of your favorite services, like Audible, Disney+, Hulu, and SiriusXM. If you are a Walmart+ customer, you can receive up to $155 back for your monthly membership fees. You can also shop at Saks with up to $100 in statement credits each year. You also receive access to the American Express Global Lounge Collection with additional privileges for the Priority Pass™ Select lounge when you sign up in advance. As far as points, you receive 5x the points on flights, up to $500,000, plus 5x the points for hotels booked through AmexTravel.com. All other purchases earn 1x the points on your other purchases. However, the annual fee is expensive in typical Amex fashion, costing almost $700.
