Exclusive lounge membership
Like the Sapphire Reserve, the Platinum Card offers you Priority Pass Select membership for you and a guest. But it one-ups the Sapphire Reserve by giving you Delta Sky Club access when you fly Delta. Then it two-ups the Sapphire Reserve by offering the rest of the American Express Global Lounge Collection, an exclusive set of lounges throughout the world. And while most lounges are basically the airport equivalent of a hotel lobby with a continental breakfast, American Express' own Centurion Lounge network are some of the best you'll find in the US. and around the world. You'll find them in popular hubs in Dallas, Hong Kong, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle. You need a stiff drink every time you fly out of LaGuardia, and luckily, AmEx hands you one for free.
