One of my favorite benefits of the American Express Business Platinum
The American Express Business Platinum card has a slew of benefits whose collective value exceeds the $450 annual fee. One of my favorites is the partnership with GoGo: the company that offers in-flight internet. You will receive 10 passes each calendar year that you are a cardmember. At the very minimum, I’d value you this perk at around $150.
What the American Express Business Platinum passes will look like in your account:
A Flight I recently took from the East coast to the West coast: $27 value!
Since these passes work for the entire flight, I tend to try and save them for the longer flights where the internet packages are more expensive. I’ve actually paid for shorter duration flights out of pocket in order to the Amex passes for more expensive redemption options. I’ve redeemed 6 of them so far and I would say I’m easily averaging between $15-20 per Amex flight pass. On the low end that’s $150 of the $450 annual fee recouped there. Add in the $200 in flight incidentals and global entry fee credit and you’ve made up the $450 annual fee entirely. Not bad!
