UPDATE: This bonus is no longer available.
I’ve written about this card before, but I’ll write about it again since I think it’s so great:
50,000 American Express Membership Rewards points: for opening up a $450 annual fee Amex Platinum – incredible deal in my opinion. I conservatively estimate the value of 50,000 Amex points at $1,000, plus you get a ton of other benefits like lounge access and hotel upgrades. I did a post recently about whether the Platinum card is worth it and with such a huge point bonus it’s a no brainer.
So if you are looking to start racking up the points and traveling better in 2011, the Amex Platinum card is a good starting point. As I mentioned yesterday, Amex points are a 1:1 transfer partner to Air Canada Aeroplan which allows around the world business class tickets, with stops in Europe and Asia for 100,000 points.
