For existing Platinum Card Members: you can call the number on the back of your current card to request your metal card.
This card is great because it includes free travel insurance, which I used when I was overseas for six months, and it saved me so much money.I love the rewards, but it’s a shame that it’s not accepted everywhere, and where it is accepted there is often a surcharge.
I like the card but wish I could use it more often and get more points. And I know it sounds stupid, but it would be nice if they made the cards look more attractive. That way I would be obliged to put it in my wallet and keep it there, instead of losing it every few months.
Great card, just not a lot of stores accept them. When you do go to use them they also charge a fee at petrol stations, etc. I do use mine for grocery shopping every now and then at Woolworths — I get $20 off which is great. It would be a better card if it was accepted in a lot more places.
This card is the best card I have ever used. It gets accepted pretty much anywhere, in Australia or overseas.
There are very attractive rewards for frequent flyers, and customer service is the best in the business. There are great security features attached to it.
i use it for daily expenses, booking and buying stuff online, and over-the-phone transactions.
I recently obtained this credit card and so far it has been accepted at most places and I have earned all the points I was promised.
There is a yearly fee of approximately $340. However, you receive a complimentary domestic return flight every year, which covers the cost of the fee. There are also free Virgin lounge passes.
There are great rewards, the staff are very helpful, and I have never had any issues with the card. I have managed to save enough points to fly myself and my partner overseas and back.
I have no complaints at all. I love the trust of the company and wouldn’t go with any other one.
I love this card. Great offers can be saved to the card. Fees are reasonable, but often they give a loyalty bonus around renewal times (if you ask).
When I contact them, I always receive excellent customer service, day and night. The online and app access are good also. Overall, a great deal.
Great card with excellent benefits, especially for a frequent traveller. The unlimited spend amount, combined with the lounge access, included travel insurance cover and travel and concierge services make this an invaluable card for the frequent international traveller.
The only downside to the card from my perspective is the size of the annual fee.
Apart from the $1,200 annual fee, this card is a great product for a luxury lifestyle. It has access to a wide range of worldwide airport lounges, complimentary insurance coverage, complimentary elite hotel and car rental memberships, and an annual domestic return flight on Virgin Australia. This card is a charge card, which works well only if you repay your full balances every month.
I don’t really like credit cards much, but having the Platinum American Express credit card is rewarding. It has great rewards, an excellent app, and is even compatible with Apple Pay. It definitely destroys all the other credit card companies.
The downside is that the credit card is a bit expensive and not all places accept it, but it is always my first choice by far.
