Staff Review

 

Editor's Rating:

4.5-star review

4.5 out of 5

Our take: The American Express Platinum card carries one of the highest annual fees for a card in its class and a rewards rate that pales in comparison to similar cards; however, you can’t beat its extensive list of luxury travel perks, including access to exclusive Centurion lounges.
