I am thinking about applying for Amex Platinum. I understand that it has $200 Airline Fee Credit. I was wondering if I can use this credit on lounge fee for additional guests that I travel with?
Btw, this Amex Platinum card, is it a plastic card just like any other credit cards? or does it use some sort of other material like carbon fiber Visa Black to make Amex Plat feel special?
To answer your question, the answer is no. The $200 credit is airline specific.
I select United as I fly out of Denver. I can use my Platinum card at the Red Carpet Lounges and be reimbursed. I cannot use it at a just any VIP lounge either. Just United, since that is my airline selection. I can also buy gift certificates to give to other travelers to use at the lounge and be credited back. Gift certificates can technically be used for any United purchase, including tickets, food, upgrades. It is made of plastic, just like any other credit card. Like all AmEx cards, they look really cool under black light or UV light.
