Newest Benefit Of The Platinum Card From American Express

Via The AP, NEW YORK (AP) — American Express will announce a major enhancement to its widely-used Platinum Card this week, allowing card members to earn five Membership Reward points per dollar spent on airlines.

The change comes as the credit card giant faces some new entrants into the high-end, luxury credit card space, including JPMorgan Chase’s Sapphire Reserve card launched this summer to great interest, despite its $450 annual fee.

AmEx Platinum Card users starting Thursday will earn five points for every dollar spent directly with any airline or on AmEx’s travel website, said American Express spokeswoman Charlotte Fuller, up from the current one point per dollar earned on airfare.

One of my favorite credit cards in my wallet is my Platinum Card from American Express, which I love for a variety of reasons which include American Express Centurion Lounge Access, Priority Pass Select, and Delta SkyClub Access and the annual $200 airline fee credit which is per calendar year.

  1. Does this include if the ticket is purchased from a travel agent/consolidator? Or do I have to buy it directly from the airline (or AmEx)?
