New Benefits Starting In June

New benefit in June will include Boingo Wireless. Starting in June 2014, Platinum Card Members will receive complimentary 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.

Also starting in June will be a statement credit option for TSA Pre✓™ Starting in June 2014, Platinum Card Members will have the option to receive a statement credit for a TSA Pre✓™ application fee. The $85 statement credit for TSA Pre✓™ is an alternative to the existing benefit that American Express launched in 2011―a $100 statement credit for a Global Entry application fee.  Card Members can receive a statement credit for either the TSA Pre✓™ or Global Entry program application fee once every five years.

  • If the Card Member travels internationally, Global Entry can reduce wait time at US Customs when returning from international travel. If approved for Global Entry, at no additional charge, the Card Member will receive access to TSA Pre✓™
  • If the Card Member does not travel internationally or does not think he/she meets the requirements of Global Entry, the Card Member can opt to apply for TSA Pre✓™ alone.  TSA Pre✓™ allows low-risk travelers to experience faster, more efficient screening at participating U.S. airports.
