The American Express Platinum Card has long been synonymous with superior social standing and status. Today, American Express has introduced a new suite of benefits for Platinum Card Members at no additional cost - these benefits range from elite status in loyalty programs, travel credits, exclusive access to private membership clubs and spaces as well as enhanced travel benefits just to name a few.
The brand new Platinum Card is a new stainless steel card which comes with exclusive benefits like access to Platinum Vibes (located on the second floor of Marina at Keppel Bar). Alongside Centurion members, Platinum Vibes offer a beautiful space for members and their friends and family to indulge in carefully-curated menus designed by two Michelin chefs in one single location (for a fee).
Holders of the Platinum Card will also be able to enjoy S$800 credit per year for eligible bookings made through The Platinum Concierge - S$400 air travel credit and S$400 lodging credit. Platinum Members will also earn 5 Membership Rewards points for every S$1.60 spent on eligible Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Scoot ticket purchases - this equates to roughly 1.95 miles per S$1. Cardholders will also receive elite statuses in the following loyalty programs:
- Starwood Preferred Guest® Gold Elite Status (Gold in the new Marriott Loyalty Program)
- Shangri-La Golden Circle Jade Membership
- Hilton Honors Gold Status
- Radisson Rewards Gold Status
The American Express Platinum Card comes with a range of other benefits that you can find out more here. While the annual fee of this charge card is priced at S$1,712 each year, the annual fees of the first two supplementary cards are permanently waived. Additionally, apart from the great benefits that you get with the card, you will also earn a welcome bonus of 75,000 Membership Rewards Points when you spend S$20,000 on your Platinum Card within the first 3 months of Card Membership (online application must be submitted before 31 December 2018). You will also get to enjoy a free 3D/2N stay at selected overseas Banyan Tree or Mandarin Oriental properties, or a 2D/1N stay at Capella Singapore if you apply before 31 October 201. On subsequent years, you will receive a Membership anniversary gift annually of a 2D/1N stay at The St Regis Singapore or W Hotel Singapore.
