Earlier this week American Express confirmed new earnings structures for both the The Platinum Card® from American Express and The Enhanced Business Platinum Card® from American Express.
• The Personal Platinum Card will earn 5x points on airfare purchased directly with airlines
• The Business Platinum Card will offer 1.5x Membership Rewards points on purchases of at least $5,000
• The Business Platinum Card will offer 50% points back when using Membership Rewards Pay with Points to book a flight with your selected airline, or when booking a flight in first or business class on any airline
While the 5x points on airfare for the personal card is exciting, the potential for a 50% rebate with the Business Platinum card means you can get two cents per point out of all your Membership Rewards points towards a travel purchase. That’s a fantastic return, and one that makes the business card particularly compelling.
Even better, there is a new limited time offer to earn up to 100,000 Membership Rewards points on the Business Platinum card.
