The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN is offering a big welcome bonus of up to 100,000 points upon completing minimum spend at the moment, though on top of that has a lot of fantastic benefits.
The card’s great perks include a $200 annual airline fee credit, access to Boingo hotspots, 10 Gogo passes, access to American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts, access to Delta SkyClubs, a Priority Pass Select membership, access to Amex Centurion Lounge, a Global Entry fee credit, Gold elite status in Hilton HHonors and Starwood Preferred Guest/Marriott Rewards, a 35% refund when you redeem your points using the “Pay With Points” feature, and much more.
One other big perk of the card is that you get 10 free Gogo wifi passes annually. I wrote about this benefit back in November, though the benefit is awarded each calendar year, meaning that as of Sunday, cardmembers are entitled to another 10 Gogo passes.
You have to manually request your 10 free Gogo wifi passes, though it’s an instant process from there. Just enter your card number and card security code.
The next page will confirm that you’re eligible for 10 complimentary internet passes.
The next page will ask you to log into your Gogo account to request the passes.
Then you’ll get a confirmation that the passes are in your account. When you go to the Gogo website you should see the 10 passes listed there under the “pre-purchased passes” section.
If you signed up for this benefit last year, there’s a chance that the passes automatically posted to your account again this year. Otherwise you may have to go through the above process. Regardless, it should only take a minute, and I’m sure many will find this perk to be extremely valuable.
This is yet another benefit of the great Amex Business Platinum Card. Between the huge welcome bonus, ongoing perks that more than justify the annual fee (in my opinion), and the ability to get more value out of all your points by using the 35% off redemption option, this card is more valuable than ever before.
If you haven’t yet claimed your 10 Gogo wifi passes for 2017, be sure you do so. The same applies to the 2017 Amex airline fee credit.
