The American Express Business Platinum card has announced a big, limited-time offer for new cardholders: 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards points after meeting certain spending thresholds.

The Benefits-Packed Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN

I’ve praised getting The Business Platinum Card from American Express as some of the best points-related advice René has ever given me.

Air Travel Benefits

Rebate on Airfares Booked with Membership Rewards Points!

One of the benefits I love most is the 35% Membership Rewards rebate valid for certain airfares booked through AmexTravel.com. Each year, you select an airline (we’ll say Delta). And whenever you use Membership Rewards points to pay for some or all of a Delta flight purchased through Amex, you receive 35% of those points back. Plus, those tickets code as cash fares, entitling you to MQM, MQD, SkyMiles, and any applicable elite Medallion perks.

The 35% rebate is also available for any first class airline ticket booked through Amex Travel — regardless of airline.

Gogo Inflight Wifi

Add your Business Platinum Card from American Express to your Gogo Wifi account and receive ten complimentary wifi sessions each year!

Annual Fee

The card carries a $595 annual fee.

Quick Summary

First things first: $25,000 in minimum spend to reach a welcome bonus is a lot of money. But Amex Business Platinum card welcome bonuses generally require a hefty amount of spend for their welcome bonuses. If you have quarterly taxes to pay (’tis the season…), that could be a quick way to knock out of a bunch of spend.

The daily bonus point earnings on this card are nothing exceptional. I have and love this card — pretty much for the benefits only. But I still find it worth the nearly $600 annual fee.
