Mercedes-Benz Platinum Card Review
This card has better rewards than the other Mercedes Amex card but is aimed at luxury travelers. It also has a luxury annual fee to match: $475. Besides the fee, it also has one very important difference. This card is a charge card, meaning you must pay the balance in full each month. The rewards are also a lot richer than on the other Mercedes card.
Both cards give you automatic membership in Amex’s Membership Rewards program. With this card, you earn five points for every dollar you spend at Mercedes dealerships, one point everywhere else.
You can also earn a $1,000 certificate toward the purchase or lease of a new – but not used – Mercedes after you spend $5,000; you can earn another $1,000 each year when you spend $5,000. However, you can’t combine them – each one expires after one year. Some models are not eligible.
Then there are the travel benefits, such as free access to airport clubs and lounges and a concierge. There’s also a $200 annual airline credit, and no foreign exchange fees. The $95 card doesn’t have these perks. You can also transfer your points directly into many airline frequent-flier programs.
