Back in December of 2014 I wrote about an announcement from American Express that The Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN cardholders would receive 10 complimentary Gogo Inflight WiFi passes annually starting in 2015. These passes, which are now available, can be used to access internet on any Gogo-equipped flight segment, regardless of the flight length and whether it’s domestic or international. This is in addition to the fact that Platinum Card from American Express members can also receive complimentary, unlimited WiFi access from Boingo Wireless.
This benefit is now officially available, and you can activate your passes by following these instructions:
- Enter your Business Platinum Card number here.
- Follow the prompts to create/ sign into your Gogo account.
- When you fly on a Gogo-equipped flight, simply log in to Gogo and choose to use an American Express internet pass.
Gogo in-flight WiFi generally costs $16 for an all-day pass, so the 10 passes are worth $160 in total. Gogo otherwise charges $59.95 per month of unlimited use, and offers occasional discounts like $5 for one hour of use. I think this is a great benefit that Amex is offering, and I’m looking forward to using my passes on future flights. With great transfer partners like United and Hyatt, 2x points on travel & dining and a 50,000 point sign up bonus, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great card for those looking to get into the points and miles game.
