Is a benefits book supposed to come with my card?

Postby Twelfthjoe » Mon Sep 17, 2012 10:54 pm

I posted here about how I was approved for a Platinum Amex.

Anyways it came by UPS today and I was expecting a box or something like you see in the videos however I just got an envelope with the card in it and the cardholder agreement. There where no books of any kind to tell me about the benefits or anything. Is this normal or did something go wrong?

Weird. Mine came UPS, in an envelope, but it came with a hardcover benefits booklet, along with the agreement and other paperwork.

That's how my Platinum charge card came, in a small box. American Express platinum charge cards are not revolvers.
