One of the greatest ways to remember the highlights of a trip is when you get home and review all of your photos, but we all know the feeling of scrolling through your iPhone with great disappointment. Blurry images, out of focus scenes, lost memories: It can be heartbreaking

Last Week’s Winner

The winner of a $400 eBags.com gift card and 2 Admirals Club Passes is TPG reader seakimski! Last week we asked what piece of luggage you’re lugging around and why you need the gift card to eBags.com. We got a lot of great entries, but the randomly chosen winner was TPG reader seakimski who said  “My black vintage Samsonite hardside carry-on (circa 1990) needs to retire. It’s had its corners busted by baggage droppers and [been] repaired with epoxy and duct tape. Black electrical tape keeps the trim in place. Poor thing… But it’s certainly been a trouper!”

Congratulations, we hope this gift card helps you get the best bag for your travel needs!

The American Express Platinum card has some of the best perks out there: cardholders enjoy the best domestic lounge access (Delta SkyClubs, Centurion Lounges, and Priority Pass), a $200 annual airline fee credit as well as up to $200 in Uber credits, and mid-tier elite status at SPG, Marriott, and Hilton. Combined with the 60,000 point welcome offer -- worth $1,140 based on TPG's valuations -- this card is a no-brainer for frequent travelers. Here are 5 reasons you should consider this card, as well as how you can figure out if the $550 annual fee makes sense for you.
