Over the last several years, American Express has totally revamped its flagship personal card, The Platinum Card® from American Express, from a metal credit card that focused solely on luxury travel to your wallet’s best lifestyle and luxury travel partner.
One way in which Amex made the great pivot to travel and lifestyle was through its acquisition of Resy, an online restaurant reservation platform.
Since Amex acquired Resy in 2019, it has woven in exclusive Resy benefits for specific cardholders. In this guide, we’ll walk you through what Resy benefits you get if you have an Amex Platinum card.
Let’s get into it!
The Amex Platinum reigns supreme for luxury travel, offering the best airport lounge access plus generous statement credits, and complimentary elite status.
When it comes to cards that offer top-notch benefits, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better card out there than The Platinum Card® from American Express.
Make no mistake — the Amex Platinum card is a premium card with a premium price tag. With amazing benefits like best-in-class airport lounge access, hotel elite status, and tremendous value in annual statement credits, it can easily prove to be one of the most lucrative cards in your wallet year after year.
Hot Tip: Check to see if you’re eligible for a welcome bonus offer of up to 125k (or 150k) points with the Amex Platinum. The current public offer is 80,000 points. (This targeted offer was independently researched and may not be available to all applicants.)
The Amex Platinum card offers fantastic benefits and huge rewards but comes with a hefty price tag. Still, one of the ways you can get some exceptional value from the Amex Platinum card right off the bat is to take advantage of the welcome bonus and ability to earn up to 5x Membership Rewards points:
This card offers some incredible luxury travel benefits. Note that some benefits require enrollment through your American Express account, so don’t miss out on your benefits.
But we also love this card because it focuses immensely on lifestyle benefits:
Resy is an online restaurant reservation platform similar to OpenTable that allows its users to make reservations online or through a mobile app. In fact, Resy is the market leader in large metropolitan cities like New York City, so if you’re looking to make a reservation at a restaurant, you’ll probably end up using Resy.
If you have an eligible Amex card, you’ll get Global Dining Access by Resy, which is an exclusive program designed to allow members to access some of the most sought-after restaurants and enjoy other benefits like:
Using your benefits is super easy:
Some of the most popular restaurants include Carbone (NYC), Le Bernardin (NYC), Jon & Vinny’s (LA), and COTE Miami.
In addition to the Amex Platinum card, several other U.S. Amex cards are eligible for Global Dining Access by Resy:
If you’re a foodie, having Resy benefits will add a ton of value to your life.
With the Amex Platinum card in your wallet, you’ll get Global Dining Access by Resy, which entitles you to exclusive reservations, priority notifications when tables open up, access to special experiences, and a VIP diner badge.
Best of all, it’s super easy to use your benefits — just add your Amex Platinum card to your Resy wallet and start using the app or website!
