American Express has added three new benefits to its Platinum Card, including new international lounge access, the opportunity to zip through International Arrivals at U.S. airports and the elimination of foreign exchange fees. The “Priority Pass Select” allows card members access to more than 600 international airport lounges in more than 100 countries and more than 300 cities worldwide. After enrolling in the program at americanexpress.com/transformtravel, Card members will receive their Priority Pass Select card in the mail and can begin enjoying the relaxing ambience of the lounges that include a variety of benefits such as complimentary refreshments, snacks and internet access.
Cardholders also get $100 Global Entry Credit, which allows approved members expedited clearance and the ability to bypass lines at International Arrivals in major U.S. airports when returning from traveling abroad, and enjoy elimination of Foreign Currency Transaction Fees. This is along with a $200 Airline Fee Credit towards incidental airline fees that are charged on the Card member’s enrolled Platinum Card on their selected airline; a 20% Travel Bonus; and a Fine Hotels & Resorts Program, granting room upgrades (upon availability), daily continental breakfast for two, 4 p.m. late check-out and an additional special amenity worth a minimum of $450 per stay.Details
