Have an Amex Business Platinum card? Don’t forget to register for these perks

The Business Platinum Card® from American Express might come with a high annual fee, but it also has a whole lot of credit card perks.

Despite the annual price tag of $695 (see rates and fees), the Amex Business Platinum card has plenty to offer — but many of the card’s best benefits aren’t automatic; you’ll have to enroll your card to get them. Here’s a quick look at what those perks are and how to register for them.

Remember, the card is also currently offering a lucrative introductory bonus of 150,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $20,000 on eligible purchases in the first three months of card membership. According to TPG’s latest valuations, that’s worth a whopping $3,000.

Here’s what else to know about the Amex Business Platinum.

Overview of the Business Platinum perks

The Amex Business Platinum offers more than $1,400 in statement credits that you could potentially maximize. Of the seven credits, you must register for six before you can actually begin using them. Here’s a look at what those credits are:

Credit  Annual amount   Do I need to register?  How it works

Indeed* Up to $360 Yes Annual statement credit on all Indeed hiring and recruiting products and services to post open positions and find talent, up to $90 per quarter
Adobe* Up to $150 Yes Annual statement credit on select purchases, including Adobe Creative Cloud and Acrobat Pro DC

How to register

The golden ticket to accessing these perks is through your online Amex account under the “Benefits” tab. Once there, you can find every perk that you need to register for.


In addition, several perks even have a dedicated tracker within your Amex account. This is helpful to determine how much of a perk you have left remaining. For instance, in the screenshot above, this cardholder still has $200 left of their airline fee credit. (Don’t forget to register first.)


Bottom line

The Amex Business Platinum Card is one of our top business cards; It’s excellent, especially for businesses with expenses in the statement credit categories. While it might not be worth the money for all business owners, its travel and lifestyle perks are difficult, if not impossible, to beat.

Most of its perks, however, do need to be registered for ahead of time — a worthy investment if you plan on making the most of your new card.
