Update (Dec. 9, 2020) – There’s one report that terms that came with the card show a waived annual fee the first year and then a $595 annual fee after that.

Guru’s Wrap-up

100K is as good as it gets for the Amex Business Platinum card. The card has a huge annual fee of $595 but also comes with lots of perks. The travel benefits might not be of much use for the next few months, but they have added temporary perks that can be used while staying at home. Just make sure that you can complete the spending requirement, which is not easy at $15K within three months. There’s also a 100K offer possible via phone with less pending required.

  1. I just got my 2nd business platinum (unfortunately, this one did not get FYF) and I still see the “Go platinum” offer on my account, offering 100k on $15k spend for a new business platinum card.

  2. I got the offer and I already have the card. They show my existing card number in the email so they know I have it. Any play here, are they asking me to get two cards?
