Schwab Amex Platinum, 100K Bonus Plus 10X for Shop Small and Restaurant Purchases

Unlike other versions of the Amex Platinum Card that only let you cash out points at 0.6¢, the Charles Schwab Platinum can get you 1.25¢. While you could be able to get more value through travel partners, this is a favorite option for many, since it lets you get a competitive and constant cash value. You can read more on how you can apply, and cash out points. But that value will go down soon to 1.10¢.

And if you are planning to apply before the rumored fee increase, then there’s good news. There’s currently a 100,000 Membership Rewards offer that also comes with 10X earning for restaurants and Shop Small purchases. The Morgan Stanley Amex Platinum Card also has the same bonus.

Update: The annual fee is now up to $695. The offer mentioned below now also shows up through the public link, before you log in.

Offer

  • Earn 100,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $6,000 with your new card in the first 6 months.
