After a ridiculously long time away, I am returning to share a deal that I just successfully took advantage of myself that I don’t want anyone to miss out on.
The product is the American Express Platinum Charge Card.
The benefits are second to none, and the best part is that you keep most of the benefits, even after cancelling the card.
This is absolutely key, because Amex charge a hefty £450 annual fee for the card, BUT this is refunded pro-rata when you cancel the card. You may only need to keep the card for a month of so, so you can expect in this situation to only pay a total of £37.50. An absolutely fantastic deal!
When I cancelled my card yesterday after 5 weeks, Amex simply gave me a full refund. I kept the benefits and paid nothing.
What are the benefits?
I will focus here on the benefits you will get to keep even after cancelling the card.
