- For business expenses, Barrymore says the American Express Platinum Business is her preferred card.
- The actress turned entrepreneur carries her card in a humble Ziplock bag, not a wallet.
- She says her favourite card is “so dope and makes me feel like a baller."
Drew Barrymore–known for her roles acting and producing He's Just Not That Into You, Charlie’s Angels, and E.T. – has been an American Express card member for years. Despite bucketloads of on-screen success, she’s also an entrepreneur with an empire of four businesses under her belt: Flower Beauty, Flower Eyewear, Flower Press and her production company, Flower Films.
You might be surprised to learn that these days she’s toting a humble Ziplock bag as her wallet and inside lies the entrepreneur’s favourite card: the US version of the American Express Platinum Business card.
Unlike your everyday entrepreneur, Barrymore no doubt doesn’t need to rely on points to book flights – but the fact she understands and uses the perks of points shows just how savvy she is. The good news? You can too. It really is that easy.
Although Barrymore’s American Express Business Platinum will slightly vary from ours (as her card is the US version), the Aussie counterpart is also very rewarding.
