Expert review

The American Express Corporate Platinum Card gives you a mix of management tools and perks, including up to 2 Membership Rewards points per $1 spent and the ability to pay almost any merchant via AccessLine – even if they don’t accept Amex.

To give you an idea of the value of rewards, the 400,000 bonus points would be enough to spend $2,000 with PayPal, Ticketek or David Jones. You can also redeem them for gift cards, statement credit, travel or point transfers to partners including Velocity Frequent Flyer and Air New Zealand Airpoints. Any additional cards you add will also earn points, which means you could pass this benefit on to employees.

How to apply

You can apply for the American Express Corporate Platinum Card by selecting the “Speak to a specialist” option on the Amex website and filling in the request form. Someone from the American Express corporate card team will then contact you at a suitable time.
