Is it a smart move to upgrade a current Amex Platinum Credit Card to Amex Platinum Charge Card?

I got an Amex invite to upgrade my current platinum credit card to a platinum charge card. Considering the $1, 700 annual fee is it a smart move guys?

    Absolutely, yes you should because of the perks involved. If you are a frequent flyer, you get access to the lounges in most airports, and also concierge services which are super convenient and efficient. I think the annual fees is quite an amount to pay just like you do too so if your objective is to save on expenses then maybe not. However if like me you are a jet setter and feel that the perks are worth more than the worry of annual fees then by all means upgrade the card and use all the perks.

Spa privileges that come with card membership

I find it very pleasant and rewarding the Platinum Wellness offerings of the AMEX Express Platinum Credit Card as I get to rest and replenish after a hard week at work. I treat myself to spa privileges that come with my Card Membership with spa vouchers from Adeva Spa, Spa Rael and The Ultimate. I do this one’s a week and enjoy up to 40% off à la carte spa services at Adeva Spa, Spa Rael and The Ultimate. Simply relaxing and feels good to be pampered.

Complimentary hotel stays and invitation to pre-launch events

I have been an AMEX platinum card holder for a while now and I sometimes receive complimentary hotel stay, invitation to pre-launch events as well as a complimentary AMEX reserve card, however you will need to apply for it separately but is complimentary. Furthermore, on top of the usual benefits that comes with the AMEX platinum card, you get the additional benefits offered by AMEX Reserve card.

Benefits with this card can be enjoyed by me, my friends and family too

The annual fee is too hefty I think and there is no doubt about it. However the benefits with this card are not only enjoyed by myself, but by my friends and family too. The most valuable treat I enjoy the most is the unlimited lounge access for me and my two supplementary card holders inclusive of their guests.

A lot of restaurants offer great deals on Amex.

Even as not all merchants accept the Amex card, whenever I have the chance to use the Amex I go right ahead and take up the opportunity. The rewards are worth the spending however with a great lounge at the airport and great vouchers that they mail me regularly on hotels and business class tickets. Additionally, lots of restaurants offer great deals too on Amex.

I recommend this card for its complimentary access into Tower Club

I recommend this card for its complimentary access into Tower Club as users of the platinum Card are given access to this elite, members-only Tower Club Singapore. This Club is situated in a serene and breath-taking location and affords members privileges such as the use of all the dining and conference facilities, as well as invitations to all club events and activities.

Earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC

Even as the OCBC Plus! Visa is not a cashback card, thus there is no cap, or "maximum" cash back, you get to still earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC. However do note that there is a minimum spend of $500 in places outside NTUC before the full range of rebates and LinkPoints can be unlocked.

Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.

Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

Poor Customer Service

I am quite very disappointed with this card as I have never received the vouchers for all the points I have accumulated so far. I have on several occasions made complaints via the phone and even in person, but all to no avail. I would not recommend this card to anyone for this reason, i have to say unfortunately.

Fantastic Rewards

A 5% cash rebate on fuel purchases and a 16% instant discount is a great deal for me I must say, the HSBC VISA Platinum Credit Card indeed makes driving more fun for me as i always look forward to the 16% instant discount plus 5% cash rebate on all fuel spend at Caltex and Shell stations
