UPDATE: The waived annual fee is no longer offered, but the card lives on, with a 60,000 Membership Rewards welcome bonus after spending $5,000 in the first months.
As of this morning, The Platinum Card from American Express for Ameriprise Financial is no longer available for new applications. The card was a favorite due to its waived annual fee for the first year.
The Amerprise Platinum card had all same benefits that the standard Platinum card–Centurion Lounge and Delta SkyClub access, $200 airline fee credit, $200 Uber credit to name a few.
While the card didn’t offer any Membership Rewards signup bonus, it had been offered with a $0 introductory annual fee for the first year. The waived annual fee extended to the first 3 additional Platinum cardholders.
Those waived fees represented a potential savings of $725 in the first year. In addition, if you had the card before, you could get it again. This made it a perennial favorite for those who like avoid paying annual fees.
RIP, old friend.
