Most premium credit cards make an easy case for themselves during the first year, with strong welcome offers and immediate access to luxury travel benefits.
And for now, The Platinum Card® from American Express is all the more rewarding for new cardholders. As of Nov. 12, 2020, Amex is offering a 75,000-point welcome offer after you spend $5,000 in the first six months of account opening. Additionally, you’ll earn 10x points on eligible purchases made at U.S. gas stations and U.S. supermarkets. The bonus points apply to up to $15,000 in combined spending during the first six months of card membership.
