American Express Business Platinum Card Adds 2 New Benefits; Annual Fee Will Increase Beginning May 1st.


The American Express Business Platinum card will be going up from $300/year to $395/year starting on May 1st.

Many readers of site were able to get the card for negative $250 during the last Business Amex promo.

The 2 new benefits, which are effective immediately for all cardholders, are Domestic companion tickets, and Regus Executive Club Membership Office membership.

With the domestic companion benefit, any ticket $299 and above($699-$899 for Hawaii and Alaska) qualifies for a free companion ticket.
What really is unique about this companion program is that it actually works.
-There is no special fare class that you have to book in, any old ticket on one of the Big 6 airlines qualify.
-If the ticket is under $299 Amex will round the ticket up to $299 so that you can get the other ticket for free.
-You can use this program up to 4 times per calender year.
-The cardholder must be one of the travelers.
-There are some blackout dates.

The other new feature is the Regus Executive Club Membership.
You can now access offices and get free internet and refreshments in offices around the world!

The other amazing card benefits have stayed the same for the most part, some of them include:
-Free Continental, Delta, And Northwest Airline Club Access.
-Free Starwood Gold Status.
-Free elite status with Avis, Hertz, and National Rental cars.
-If any item that you buy(up to $10,000)is lost within 90 days of purchase, the money will be refunded.

1. Just by the way the companion benefit is also for personal platinum cards as well.
2. I just tried to use it they offer very few seats per flight for companion and the ones that were available were allot more then $299


does southwest airlines have a change fee? (it seems not, but are there any catches?)


I had the same question, seems confusing, if you want to fly on a earlier flight you have to pay the highest unrestricted fare, later for free, or a credit for later…

what’s about simply changing the date to different date with the same fare?


It is very simple. On southwest there is no change fee. If the price is higher then you pay the difference if it’s lower they give you a credit for the difference valid for one year.


You can read more about Southwest in the LCC links category in the knowledgebase.


what’s with the seat assignment thing? has that changed?
