Treasure your time
Though many of our plans have been curtailed by Covid-19, you can still get the most out of life with the help of The Platinum Card® from American Express and its great benefits. Book your spot for the hottest tickets in town – whether those are virtual today or back at your favourite venues in the near future – and earn a Membership Rewards® point for every £1 you spend. You can redeem your points quickly and easily on any device, from using them to pay for almost any item on your Card Statement or on your next Amazon order. What's more, Membership Rewards points never expire, so you can save them up and spend them on something you love when the time is right.
When we’re able to dine out again, American Express holds specially reserved tables for Platinum Cardmembers at some of the best-known restaurants as part of its exclusive Global Dining Collection. Reserve a table at your favourite restaurant ahead of time by booking directly through the American Express® App for something to look forward to. And when you're ready to travel again, the Platinum Concierge service offers expert, 24/7 travel and lifestyle advice wherever you are, day or night, as well as helping with booking for any kind of experience, whether in-person or virtual.
