The American Express Platinum Business card may have a $1,750 annual price tag, but cardholders, especially those who travel, can get more than $5,000 worth of perks from the card's extra features. To illustrate how your business can get more bang for its buck, we've broken down the approximate value of the benefits from the bonus points and airport lounges to the hotel status in the table below. Some of the benefits are too subjective to how you use them and were not factored into the calculation. All assumptions for the valuation are listed in the table and you should consider which benefits you'll actually use when doing your own calculation.
