Tips:

1. $200 airline fee credit for incidental charges such as checked bags or in-flight meal per calendar year. However, purchasing airline gift cards with less than $100 per transaction can also trigger this benefit.

2. Since $100 airline fee credit resets by calendar year, not the date you opened the card (card-member year), you can actually get airline fee credit twice during the first card-member year.

3. $200 annual Uber credits ($15 per month, $35 in December). The credits will expire every month. It can also be used for UberEATs service fee.

4. Additional Gold Card holders don’t have annual airline / Uber credit. However, they will have their own $100 credit for Global Entry or TSA Pre application fee. Each AMEX Platinum card holder can apply up to 99 additional gold cards

5. Additional Platinum Card holders don’t have annual airline / Uber credit. However, they will have their own $100 credit for Global Entry or TSA Pre application fee. Each additional AMEX Platinum Card holder can also have complimentary airport lounge access.

6. With this card, you have access to Amex Offers, which offers additional cash/points rebate for spending.

Restrictions when you apply:

1. You can only apply for one AMEX credit card per day, but the rule does not apply to AMEX charge cards. If you apply one credit card and one charge card on the same day, AMEX are going to combine hard-pull (for credit report). Therefore we suggest the reader apply for another AMEX charge card at the same time when applying AMEX credit card, so the applicant will only be hard-pulled once.

2. Please check the status from this link (click me) if you do not get instant approval. We strongly suggest you to call AMEX Reconsider Line to ask them about reconsidering the application if you do not get instant approval or be denied. Generally, you will have a chance to be approved after providing the information they need when calling them. The phone number of AMEX Reconsideration Line is 1-800-567-1083.

Notes:

Although this card has $550 annual fee, it provides huge benefits to cardholder, such as $200 airline fee credit, $200 annual Uber credits, $100 credit for Global Entry or TSA Pre, complimentary Hilton and SPG gold status and complimentary access to the airport lounge (Delta SkyClub, AMEX Centurion Lounge, Priority Pass Partnership Lounge). If you are a frequent traveler, the value of benefits for this card is definitely more than the annual fee. Please check this article (click me) for further information.
