Jet Airways American Express Platinum Credit Card

 

In December 2014, I signed up for the jet airways american express platinum card for the 15000 sign on bonus miles. I don’t find this card too exciting with its earn ratio, the best earn ratio for spends on Jetairways is the HDFC co-branded world card which gives 18 miles for 150 spent (12 miles for 100).
In May 2015, there was an offer of 1000 bonus JP Miles when you subscribe to an supplementary card. I applied for 2 cards (free) for 2000 bonus JP miles.

As per TnC, the bonus miles should be credited to your account by July 31, 2015, for me it didn’t.
I called in and got it rectified. If you availed this offer, do verify if you received the miles.

American Express Platinum Travel Credit Card

American Express Platinum Travel Credit Card India

Last year I reviewed the American Express Platinum Travel Credit Card India and how it is a very good card to get the best value for credit card spends.

I met the 4L spend threshold and utilized all the benefits to its full extent.
I used the 10K Taj voucher on my birthday for a stay at Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai (review coming up soon)

The time has come to renew the card and pay a renewal fee of 5000 + taxes.
I called the customer service to get the renewal fee waived.
Initially they were offering me 50% discount on the renewal fees, but I insisted on cancelling the card if I didn’t get the waiver. Amex agreed to waive it completely if I add two utility bills payment as a standing instruction on the card.
I agreed and got it waived
