Cover Platinum Card Members' dedicated seating area at Basque Kitchen by Aitor

From a dedicated seating area at Basque Kitchen by Aitor to dining credits at partner establishments, this Platinum Card will open up a world of rewards for its members

Whether you’re booking a fine dining restaurant, a hotel staycation or a trip abroad, it’s important to have a trusted partner which will not only ensure the experience is an unforgettable one but also open up a world of privileges. This is what the American Express Platinum Card offers.

Card Members can take advantage of a plethora of curated experiences, starting with a memorable meal at one-Michelin-starred restaurant Basque Kitchen by Aitor. With the American Express experience, diners are invited to sit back and relax at the dedicated seating area, admire the majestic Fullerton Waterfront view while sipping on a complimentary glass of 2006 Piper-Heidsieck "Cuvée Rare" Brut Champagne—a truly exquisite way to begin a meal of delectable contemporary Basque fare.

Chef-patron Aitor Jeronimo Orive has crafted an exclusive menu for Card Members starring his greatest hits; among which are kokotxa, a traditional and hearty Basque fish stew, and txuleta. The latter is a speciality steak from the Basque Country featuring the meat from a mature cow—hence, the deeper flavours when it’s charcoal-grilled to a juicy and smoky finish.

Feel like dining here again? You need not worry about snagging seats at this often fully booked restaurant: you’ll always get priority reservations.

Dining perks like these are not just limited to Basque Kitchen, as American Express is offering complimentary S$350 dining credits (valid until December 31, 2021) for Card Members to dine at over 1,000 restaurants in 17 countries. With the Love Dining Restaurants and Love Dining Hotels privileges, you’ll also enjoy up to 50 per cent off your total bill at partner establishments. So, book that steak dinner you’ve been planning for at Lawry's The Prime Rib Singapore and Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, or surprise your partner with a romantic night out at Skai, located on the 70th floor of Swissôtel The Stamford.

The Card That Keeps on Giving

When you indulge with American Express’ 10xcelerator Partners—which consists of F&B groups, watches and jewellery brands, as well as beauty brands—you’ll earn a total of 20 Membership Rewards points for every full S$1.60 spent. And even if you exceed the maximum spend of S$16,000, you’ll continue to receive 10 Membership Rewards points with every card purchase.

This is truly one of the best ways to stretch your dollar, given that you can redeem a host of rewards with the points you’ve earned. With only 83,200 points, you’ll be able to update your Champagne collection with the exquisite Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, or 153,111 points if you want to go for the Aether Armand De Brignac Rose.

Take as much time as you need to think of the rewards you want to claim. After all, the points will never expire and you can keep them for the entire lifetime of your membership.
