The Platinum Card® from American Express
The Platinum Card from American Express is one of the most valuable cards available, thanks to a hefty welcome bonus and a long list of luxury travel perks that can more than offset its $695 annual fee (see rates and fees).
The current welcome offer is 80,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $6,000 on purchases on your new card in your first six months of card membership. TPG values Membership Rewards points at 2 cents each, making the bonus worth $1,600.

American Express® Gold Card
The American Express Gold Card is my go-to card for earning 4 points per dollar at restaurants and at U.S. supermarkets (up to $25,00 in purchases per calendar year). The earning rate of 4 points per dollar on dining at restaurants worldwide equals a stellar 8% return on your spending, according to TPG’s most recent valuations. Factoring in up to $120 in annual dining credits and $10 monthly Uber Cash credit, this card effectively costs just $10 per year.
Enrollment is required in advance for some of these benefits. The card’s annual fee is $250 (see rates and fees).
