American Express Platinum Travel Credit Card | Reap Maximum Benefits



If you love Flying + Luxury, this card is for you. At CP, we love both flying and luxury, and because we do not live under the rock, we are fully aware of the benefits that this card can provide. Hence, we decided to have it at our disposal in 2019 under an offer wherein the new American Express Travels Platinum Card was linked to our account as the primary card, and our good American Express Membership Rewards Card became the companion card for FREE without any Annual Fee. 

We currently use it profoundly for most of our purchases because we targeted to reap its benefits to the fullest, including those TAJ Vouchers. Details below: 



    ◾ Welcome Perks 

    ⤍ Welcome Gift of 5,000 Milestone Bonus Membership Rewards Points redeemable for Travel Vouchers worth Rs. 3,500.

    ⤍  Back in 2019, we redeemed our 5,000 Milestone Bonus Membership Rewards Points against SpiceJet Vouchers worth Rs. 4,000. Unfortunately, the same has now been discontinued, w.e.f 1st August 2020. 

    ⤍ More details on the discontinuation of SpiceJet Vouchers can be read by clicking here


    ◾ Membership Reward Points

    ⤍ You get 1 Membership Rewards Point for every Rs. 50 spent on your card.

    ⤍ MR Points are not accrued for spends on Fuel, Utilities, Insurance, and Cash Transactions. 


    ◾ Milestone Benefits

    ⤍ On spending Rs. 1.90 Lacs on the card in a membership year, you get 7500 MR Points. These 7500 MR Points are redeemable against Travel Vouchers worth INR 6,360.

    ⤍ On spending Rs. 4 Lacs on the card in a membership year, you get an additional 10,000 MR Points. These 10,000 MR Points are redeemable against Travel Vouchers worth INR 9,440.

    ⤍ Prior to 1st August 2020, 7500 MR Points and 10,000 MR Points were redeemable against SpiceJet Vouchers worth INR 7,700 and INR 11,800. Sadly,  it has now been devalued by INR 1,340 for 1.90L spends, and INR 2,360 for 4L spends.

    Update: Because cardholders can seldom fly due to COVID-19 restrictions, Effective 20 August 2020, American Express has introduced a new option to redeem Bonus MR Points wherein 7500 MR Points can be redeemed against Flipkart Vouchers worth INR 5,000 and 10,000 MR Points for Flipkart Vouchers worth INR 8,000 until 31st December 2020. More details on Flipkart Vouchers redemption options can be found by clicking here.

    ⤍ On reaching 4 Lacs Threshold, you also receive a TAJ Experiences Gift Card worth INR 10,000 redeemable at the TAJ, SeleQtions, and Vivanta Hotels.

    ⤍ If not Travel or Flipkart Vouchers, you also can redeem the points from over 500 other redemption options. The redemption value will vary depending upon the item redeemed. 


    ◾ Complimentary Priority Pass Membership

    ⤍ Enjoy complimentary membership to Priority Pass, with the US$99 annual membership fee waived off. 


    ◾ Complimentary Airport Lounge Access

    ⤍ Enjoy 4 complimentary visits per year to airport lounges across India. 

    ⤍ Four complimentary airport lounge visits have been quadfurcated into one complimentary lounge visit per quarter.


    ◾ Benefit Calculation

    The total benefits you reap on 4 Lacs spends are INR 3,500 Travel Vouchers + INR 6,360 Travel Vouchers + INR 9,440 Travel Vouchers + INR 10,000 TAJSeleQtions, and Vivanta Hotels EGV. 

    Total aggregated benefits of  Rs 29,300, which is 7.325% Reward Rate on 4 Lacs expenditure, isn't it just excellent? 

    For Rs 29,300 worth of Travel, and Hotel vouchers, you can easily book 2 pax domestic return tickets and enjoy your stay in the luxury & comfort of TAJSeleQtions, and Vivanta Hotels.
