I'm sure most people have their bill sent to there office. While I'm guessing some people have the Green Card bill sent to the office. I'm not allowed to have a small business platinum card, nobody would be able to sign for me. The personal platinum card is to expensive for me.
I guess what I'm looking for is the Green Card with some platinum benefits at the Green Card annual fee.
Platinum benefits at Green Card prices? You've got to be kidding. The benefits actually cost real money. Those people who would answer your phone call and make your dining reservations usually want to get paid just like you probably get paid on your job. You could hire a personal assistant instead. They make about $25/per hour. So your platinum card annual fee ($450) would get you 18 hours of work per year. Maybe you could find a PA for cheaper but you'd still need to provide your PA with resources to give the service you expect
The platinum card is mostly for people who travel. But my wife and I travel only a little (about 3 trips per year) and the card easily pays for itself. We've had ours only since March. My wife was maybe a little skeptical of the annual fee. Then two weeks ago on a short trip we stayed in a nice hotel for a night, got a great rate from AMEX, got upgraded to a high floor suite for free at check in, got free breakfast and a $100 food and beverage credit from AMEX, and several other perks. AMEX refunds bag fees on airlines and other incidental fees as well. We've gotten at least $750 in savings/benefits just since March. These do have to mostly do with travel, but it does not take too much travel to make the card worthwhile.
And, I've used the concierge a couple of time. They are great. I used to have a personal assistant in a former job, actually several. The AMEX concierge is better than a PA in many ways because they have a lot of resources they can draw on. And guess what, I was an executive in that job, publicly traded company, directly reported to the CEO. But I only had a green card just like the CEO only had a green card provided by the company.
My bill is sent to my residence not my office.
Really, if you want benefits you have to pay for them one way or another. You either need to spend a lot to generate fees or you pay a high annual fee. If you don't meet those criteria then you'll need to just pay for the concierge service directly. I suggest contacting Circles directly or one of the "personal virtual assistant" services.
