Service and perks included with American Express Platinum

I recently signed up for an Amex Platinum card after being a Blue Cash customer for six years. I was interested in taking it for a spin to understand the perks associated with the card. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like American Express does a very good job capturing or keeping this list up to date.

This is a list of services I’ve had to discover and set up myself. I’ll add to it as I find more.

Centurion lounge access
Nothing to set up, just show your card. Only four airports available so far.
