Want Love Dining and Chillax benefits? AMEX's latest offer for the Platinum Credit Card brings the nett cost to its lowest yet.

American Express has launched a new offer for the AMEX Platinum Credit Card, which gives cardholders S$250 in Lazada vouchers upon approval. This is S$100 more than the usual offer, and helps to cover almost 80% of the card’s S$321 annual fee. 

In addition to this, they’ll also be eligible for the regular sign-up gift of a webcam and monitor (list price: S$318), plus Love Dining and Chillax benefits. It’s a solid deal you should seriously consider.

What I particularly like about Love Dining is that it’s not 1-for-1, it’s 50% off. With 1-for-1, you only get the cheaper item free, and everything else you buy is at the regular price. 

With 50% off, you save on everything (except drinks)- appetizers, mains, desserts. No more feeling compelled to order a more expensive item because your partner did, and at more upscale restaurants, the savings can easily add up to S$100+ per visit. 

AMEX Platinum cardholders also enjoy 1-for-1 drinks and special offers with Chillax

  • Ah Sam Cold Drink Stall
  • Anti:Dote
  • Bar on 5
  • Chuan @ The Sixtieth
  • Conrad Lobby Lounge
  • Gem Bar
  • Horse’s Mouth Bar
  • Smoke & Mirrors
  • The Auld Alliance
  • The Bar at 15 Stamford
  • The Secret Mermaid
  • The World is Flat
  • Wanton Seng’s Noodle Bar

Conclusion

Once you factor in the Lazada vouchers, Love Dining and Chillax benefits, the AMEX Platinum Credit Card basically pays for itself in the first year. The monitor and webcam are optional- if you need them for your work-from-home setup, they’re yours with S$5,000 spending. 

Adjusting for the value of the Lazada vouchers, your nett annual cost is S$71, which you should easily cover with a couple of meals out. 

Remember to submit your application by 15 January 2021 to be eligible.

May I know how we can pay the annual fee first as I have received my card for the $150 Lazada promo signup.

Hopefully there’s other new gifts in Dec. Monitor and Webcam are pretty useless. Most co. already provided these for WFH.
