Anything platinum is going to be expensive and, when factoring in the $699 annual fee that’s the case with this American Express® offering. But if you're not afraid to risk it and spend big, the rewards that come with this card are plentiful.
If you make $3,000 in card purchases within the first three months, you earn 50,000 rewards points as a sign-up bonus. You can also access a $200 travel credit once per year and use it towards any single travel booking totalling $200 or more. The travel perks are wide-ranging too with special benefits at Toronto Pearson International Airport, hotel and car rental benefits as well as preferred golf membership. There are 11 travel insurance coverage plans including medical insurance and $500,000 in travel accident insurance. You can redeem your points towards various travel and entertainment experiences or do so as a statement credit after making eligible purchases. There's no pre-set spending limit on purchases, and you have other shopping coverages. To top it all off, you get Platinum Concierge service and the Global Dining Collection, which provide you with first-class offerings.
If spending is your habit, this Platinum Card® will reward you for it in many ways.
