Never Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on FacebookThe Business Platinum® Card from American Express is one of the most feature laden credit cards out there. Those features come at a cost though and the annual fee on the card recently went up from $450 to $595 per year as it added even more benefits. I’ll talk more about what those features are below. DansDeals will receive compensation if you are approved for a credit card via a link in this post. Yossi Goldstein asks via DDFB what he should do with his accumulated points if he wants to close his Business Platinum Card. If you have short-term travel plans that’s an easy question.

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser. I’ve always been an advocate of using airline miles over proprietary points from banks. However the hits keep coming for airlines and the value of their miles.
