Just a couple of days ago, American Express announced that it would open a new Platinum Card and Centurion Members. Platinum Card Members may enter with up to two travel companions at no additional charge. Centurion Members may enter with their immediate family or up to two travel companions. Platinum Card or Centurion Members may purchase access to The Centurion Lounge for additional guests for $50 each guest.
Lounges are a favorite perk of frequent travelers looking to escape the busy terminals at airports. These are great places to relax, eat or grab a drink, when they’re not overcrowded. New Centurion Lounges add more value to the personal and business Platinum cards which have had their fees increased recently.
