American Express Platinum Business Card Overview
The Amex Platinum Business is by far the most rewarding business charge card in Australia. The card is aimed at small to medium business owners looking to maximise the Amex Membership Rewards program and earn points at an uncapped rate. The Amex Platinum Business Card comes with a suite of premium lifestyle perks and offers the option to transfer points to 12 key frequent flyer programs, including Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways, AsiaMiles and many others.
As your spending and payment history is established, the amount you can charge on the Card can grow, giving you more financial capability in the future. And because it’s paid off in full each month, you won’t incur interest on the balance.
