The Platinum Card® from American Express
Earn 80,000 Membership Rewards® Points after you spend $8,000 on purchases on your new Card in your first 6 months of Card Membership.
One of my top cards especially as I’ve started traveling more. Lounge access (Centurion Lounges and Delta Sky Clubs) are a game-changer in the airport experience and I actually look forward to the experience vs. dreading it.
I personally have the business version for my business.
