A Free AMEX Biz Platinum With LOTS of Fringe Benefits For Travel

So besides being able to now get a free AMEX Platinum Business card and a total of 80K AMEX Membership Reward welcome bonus points through the instructions in this post, you also get LOTS of fringe benefits.

The Plaza Premium Lounges are found around the world at airports in Hong Kong, Australia, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada (Edmonton, Winnipeg, Vancouver, Toronto), China, India, Malaysia, Maldives, Oman, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taipei, UAE, and the United Kingdom (Heathrow).

The Plaza Premium is in THREE locations at Pearson:

  • The International Departures Terminal 3 near gate C32
  • Domestic Departures, Terminal 3, between gates B22 and B24
  • US Transborder Departures in Terminal 1, near Gate F82
Here's a link to the Plaza Premium Lounge website.  You and your spouse and up to 2 children under 18 will get in free---children 2 AND under don't pay.  The attendant at the desk may be lenient and not charge anything if you have one more child in the fam'.

You also get free access to Swissport Lounges (formerly known as Servisair Executive Lounges) around  the world, including two in Calgary and one in Montreal.  They also have several lounges in the United Kingdom, as well as ones in Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Jamaica, Kenya, Kuwait, Malaysia, Netherlands, Portugal, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, and the UAE.

Here's a link to their website for more info.

You get what is known as Cloud 10 benefits, which for the Biz Plat, include waived $25 valet service at Pearson, 15% statement credit on your Pearson parking at the Express Park in Terminal 1 and Daily Park in Terminals 1 & 3, free wifi.  More info here.  

There's also a revesting area--after you pass security, you can peacefully put your luggage back together. Next time, leave your Ming dynasty porcelain and assembled-in-your-luggage-10000 piece jigsaw puzzle at home. ;)  I'll have to look out for it and report back the next time I'm at Pearson. Sounds like kind of a ridiculous benefit.

There's also access to a "Cloud 10 lounge," which I believe I saw last time I was at Pearson--it's in the public area with no food or anything.  Lousy "benefit."

You'll get a 15% discount on Car Care, to get your car detailed while you're jetting off on vacation or business.

You'll get "Pearson Priority Security Lanes" at Terminals 1 & 3 so you can clear security faster.

Here's other benefits with the card:

To clarify, you do NOT get access to the Centurion Lounge at Pearson (sorry--an earlier post stated otherwise) unless you have the AMEX personal platinum.  Also, you have to pay to get into lounges associated with "Priority Pass"--it's a group of  over 600 lounges worldwide--they cover you're $99USD membership fee in the club--but then you still have to fork over $27USD to enter any lounge, and there's no way to pay for a year to get in all the time--only the personal platinum has you covered on that one.  You will have the option of paying for the rest of your family to enter as well ($27USD) even though they don't have a membership with Priority Pass.
