American Express has added new features to the Business Platinum Card, including an annual fee to match the personal version of the card. The new features include several statement credits and a new points-earning category. Here are all the details of the new Amex Business Platinum features:
Amex Unveils New Business Platinum Card Features and Annual Fee
The Business Platinum Card from American Express is one of the best travel cards for companies that want their employees to travel in comfort. The card’s luxurious features include access to the Amex Global Lounge Collection (including the ultra-exclusive Centurion Lounges), CLEAR® fast pass statement credits, a $200 annual airline incidentals statement credit, and more.
New Statement Credits
Now, Amex is looking to offer a broader range of perks to entice new applicants – something the card issuer recently rolled out to its popular Amex Platinum personal card. The new features include several statement credits – with the same annual fee as the non-business Platinum Card.
The new statement credits with the Business Platinum Card include:
- $400 Dell credit (increased from $200/year)
- $150 Adobe software statement credit
- $360 Indeed.com statement credit
- $120 wireless telephone statement credit ($10/ month)
Earn 1.5X Points On Eligible Business Purchases
The Business Platinum also features a new Membership Rewards points category. Businesses earn 1.5X points for each eligible purchase of $5,000 or more and every dollar spent on “business category” purchases (up to $2,000,000 in spending each year) in the following three categories:
- Construction material and hardware suppliers
- Electronic goods retailers and software, and cloud system providers
- Shipping providers
New $695 Annual Fee
The new features come at a cost, however. The Business Platinum Card also features a new annual fee of $695 – the same as the Platinum Card. This new annual fee won’t take effect until 1/13/222, making now a great time to consider the new features before that steep charge kicks in.
