Starting in June 2014, Platinum Card Members will receive complimentary, unlimited access to more than 700,000 land-based Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide in airports, retail and hotel locations through the Boingo American Express Preferred Plan. Once enrolled in the plan, Card Members can have simultaneous internet access for up to four devices without worrying about data caps or roaming fees.
While, I did some research and I saw this interesting piece of information that mentions how you can use your Boingo Account to access Gogo Wifi and I was thinking how American Express Platinum Cardholders could leverage this and if it was really as good as it seems.
However, the main advantage for you as a Boingo member is that you can connect via the Boingo app and circumvent the Gogo signin process and unify your bill under one provider.
You’ll still have to pay for Gogo Wifi, even as a Boingo member meaning American Express Platinum cardholders will not receive complimentary Gogo WiFi just yet at least. It would be nice if American Express adds Gogo Wifi as a benefit for this card as they have been adding new benefits.
