What are the Key Benefits of the American Express Personal Card?

My experience with card security has not been a pleasant one in the past as my card got compromised at a point, so I wonder if the American Express Personal Card provides World-class security Services?

    From my personal experience you can enjoy peace of mind from your travels and shopping as protection is included with your Card to offers you repairs, replacement or reimbursement on eligible purchases made with your Card, which has either been damaged or stolen within 90 days of purchase. With coverages up to S$8,000 per item and up to a maximum of S$80,000 per calendar year per Card Member Account. And in the case of unexpected happenings when you travel overseas, you can receive immediate advice with the cards 24/7 global helpline, free referrals to an English-speaking doctor, lawyer or relevant professional, and assistance on passport replacement, missing luggage and more. You also get to receive free accidental death and dismemberment insurance while travelling on a public conveyance for up to S$200,000.

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.

Great customer service officers

I have had this card for a long while. The good thing with the card is that AMEX have been waiving my annual fees which is probably why I still have the card. The pros with this card include – Great customer service officers that are friendly and will do their best to help you with prompt follow ups, direct credit of miles to your Krisflyer account, many small promos every few months with a fantastic sign up promo, no minimum spending and perfect for concert lovers as AMEX offers priority to provide tickets.

Complimentary Night Stay a Success

Very impressed by the complimentary night stay I got after I made bookings for a five nights stay at a resort I spent my birthday at in Malaysia. Even more pleasing was the complimentary golf games at a high quality golf courses in Malaysia. As a matter of fact, I had as much as six complementary golf games.

40,000 Membership Rewards points to refer a friends to the card

I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

I have held this card for quite a long time and one thing I like about the card is the fact that it is used for CapitaLand malls and they are almost everywhere. So I enjoy dining taking advantage of the 10x rewards merchants to accumulate the points faster. Imagine getting close to 6.5% rebates on dining. Not to forget their sign up bonus of $60 rebates in vouchers when you spend $1,500. That's a 4% rebate excluding the points you will earn which will convert into vouchers too.
