We love our American Express cards, a lot! We love our Platinum Card. Not just because it gets us lounge access to lounges around the world, or gold status with Starwood hotels.

It’s much more enjoyable to wait for a flight in the Centurion Lounge rather than next to the gate. Photo courtesy of www.thecenturionlounge.com

We also like the elite status with three car companies, the $200 credit we get with the airline of our choice, and the waived fee to apply for Global Entry as well as the great customer service American Express is known for. We also have a Starwood American Express, and we like the small annual fee of $65 and the ability to earn Starpoints which we can either redeem at any Starwood properties or transfer to 32 airline frequent flyer programs

We also like our Amex, because it has some interesting deals. There’s a site anyone with an Amex should check out called AmexOffers. This isn’t to tell you what sort of credit card sign up bonus you are eligible for, but rather what sort of deals you can get using your Amex.

One of our recent favorites: Spend $5 on iTunes, get $5 back. Simple enough.  We also enjoyed taking advantage of spending $25 at Costco to get $25 back, spending $25 in Bed Bath and Beyond to get $5, and a comp night and $25 credit for a minimum 3 day stay at a Fairmont Hotel!

So anyone with an Amex, wander on to over to www.amexoffers.com and see what offers they might have in store for you!

Note: Laura and I do receive commission if you decide to to sign up for either the Starwood American Express or the American Express Platinum card. You don’t have to sign up for it through our website, but we always appreciate it when you do!
