American Express Platinum Card Unboxing/Review/ Weigh-In

hey guys today we're gonna be in boxing the American Express Platinum Card It comes in a pretty thick container I kind of blocked out my name and stuff so you can't see it and I opened it and kind of covered up some of my privacy details but let's go ahead and have a look so when you open your greeted with welcome to platinum as well as some paperwork in the back and a nice little card holder and the card itself some unique characteristics about the card is that your name is on the front as well as the security digit for Amex and the card numbers an expiration date are written in the back actually and as you can see that's pretty thick the corners it feels good in your hand it comes with a little card holder which also doubles as a sullen stand so it's a little neat little touch that you get with the card it's always nice to have some extras and then inside the box there is a welcome to platinum little card and tells you how to download the mobile app and sign in and next there are some postcards that kind of go over some benefits so share the love this card is displaying to you that you could add authorized users to the account there's a cost associated with adding users to the account you are able to add three additional users for $175 any additional users after that will cost one hundred and seventy-five dollars per user when your authorized user gets their Platinum Card they have the same benefits as the primary cardholder such as access to airport lounges Global Entry slash TSA PreCheck credit and gold status at hotel chains authorized users are not able to receive annual uber and airline credit if you want to add additional members without the cost you are able to add 99 gold card users keep in mind if your authorized user receives a gold card they're not eligible for the travel benefits listed above adding additional users can help you reach the signup bonus quickly and also helps you rack up on those membership reward points the second card is talking about the Membership Rewards points also known as mr points you can receive five ex points when booking travel through American Express travel portal you receive one point for every dollar spent on everything else the current signup buffer is 60,000 points after spending five thousand dollars in the first three months this is where adding an authorized user help out the third card is all about airport lounges my favorite part of having this card with the Platinum Card you have access to over 1200 airport lounges across 120 countries pretty much anywhere you fly you should have access to an airport lounge with the American Express Global lounge collection you have access to Centurion lounges Delta Sky code priority PLAs select and many more going a little deeper on the types of long does he have access to with this card the first is in Centurion lounge by American Express these lounges are exclusively for platinum and Centurion card holders the food and cocktail menus at each location is specially curated for the respected cities when traveling with guests you may bring two additional guests at no extra cost currently there are nine locations with five locations slated to open second type of lounge access you have is Priority Pass with party past our 1200 lounges throughout the globe and you are able to bring two guests the third type of lounge I will cover is the Delta Sky Club you are given access to Delta clubs and when you're flying Delta and just have to show your platinum card when entering what the Delta Club you are allowed to bring immediate family or two companions at a discounted rate the fourth card that came in the box talks about uber credit this is another great perk that I love having as someone who lives in the city with no car having two hundred dollars annually and uber credit really helps out you get 15 dollars every month an additional twenty dollar bonus in the month of December some of the stipulations of with the credit is that you're only allowed to use it for uber rides in the US and the monthly credit does not roll over to the next month the fifth card is all about the American Express concierge service this is a 24 hour seven days a week service that you could call up to help you with tasks like securing concert tickets getting your dinner reservations at your favorite Michelin star restaurants and pretty much anything else they also help you out with trip planning and anything else related to travel when I was traveling to LA with a group of friends we wanted to go eat sushi at Nobu but not having dinner reservations on a Saturday night I knew would be impossible for us to show up and get a table so I called the concierge earlier that day and asked if they can make us a reservation they call back an hour later to let me know that my reservation had been made and all we had to do was show up this is a really special perk for cardmembers the next card is the fine hotels and resorts this perk is only available for hotels and resorts booked through the American Express Travel portal some of the perks include room upgrades upon arrival daily breakfast for two late check-out and noon check-in last perk I will be talking about is the airline credit with your platinum card you receive $200 annual credit when flying qualifying Airlines what this means that every year you're able to choose from one of the airline's listed below and any charges that you incurred like check bags in-flight entertainment Amex will reimburse you up to $200 in a calendar year there are also ways where you could buy airline gift cards for airlines like American and Delta and American Express will reimburse you the 200 if you want more info on that let me know in the comments below and I'll make a video on that there are also many other great perks that come with the card like Global Entry slash TSA PreCheck credit gold status at SPG and Hilton Hotels and an annual hundred dollar Saks 5th credit plus many more perks in summary the American Express Platinum Card has many great benefits for a person who's always on the move yes the five hundred and fifty dollar annual fee seems absurd for a credit card but having the two hundred dollar annual uber credit two hundred dollar annual airline credit and hundred dollar annual Saks credit makes the net annual fee only fifty dollars with a great customer support team and the rich history of American Express this card is a keeper in my books let me know in the comments below under what your thoughts of the Platinum Card are the last but not least the weigh-in since this is a luxury card it is made out of metal and it weighs add-in an 18-point 62 grams also if you found this video helpful hit that like button and subscribe
