Although I agree that the annual fee seems insulting at first, the customer service and benefits received with this card far outweigh the cost in value. The concierge service planned a trip for me and my fiancee to Italy and Greece, and the experience was seamless & priceless (and not overwhelmingly expensive). While we were there, my identity was hacked, and Amex not only caught it within 24 hours but also got me a replacement card the next day AND washed the fraudlent charges without difficulty. That kind of service is more than I can say about some other credit lenders....

The travel benefits are a 2 for 1 business or first class international s airline tickets but after trying to use x2 the deal the rate for the one ticketis much higher than what you can buy 2 of the same from the airline. Other attempts to use the travel service which is supposed to guarantee the best rates have each time been equally disappointing and all attempts have been significant LESS EXPENSIVE through airlines and other sources.
One of the reasons that I got the platinum card was access to AA Admirals club as soon as I got my card they quit the agreement with AA and it is no longer accepted for admission to the Admirals club.
