I consider myself somewhat of a credit card connoisseur. While I don’t get aa lot of new cards, run up all the points and cash out, I do enjoy finding cards that benefit me. These include most of the higher end cards such as Amex Platinum, Citi Prestige and Ritz Carlton Card from Chase.
Recently, American Express announced some new perks with their Platinum Card. This includes up to $200 annually a year in Uber Credits, and a whopping 5X points on hotels booked via Amex, in addition to the already 5x points on Airfare!
The Uber credit alone is awesome, but here’s some details
Platinum Card Members will receive $15 in Uber credits for U.S. rides every month plus a $20 bonus in December, delivered through an exclusive Uber app experience. That’s up to $200 for Uber annually. Platinum Card Members will also become Uber VIPs, where available, without meeting minimum ride requirements and be matched with top-rated drivers, so that even a 5-minute trip can be a 5-star experience.
