Jet Airways American Express Platinum Card (Special Offer)

The Jet Airways American Express Platinum card was launched in 2012, and has been a staple fixture in my wallet ever since. This is one card which comes with some great benefits, all of which I’ve used at some point or the other.

Besides, you get a free ticket code per annum, which can be used for a free Jet Airways Economy Flight, to be booked at least 14 days out. These free ticket codes, when used strategically, help me recoup the value of the card in one go.

Comments

  1. Ajay,

    I recently got this Amex card but I struggle to use this card (specially offline) because of low acceptance. Can you please tell me your strategy to maximise its use for offline transactions.
    Thanks.

  2. Dear Ajay

    Many foreign travel, credit card and lounge blogs clearly states that they derive so and so benefits if you apply through their referral program.

    With all respect, why can’t you follow that concept here also.

    Last time, I was little disappointed when I saw the economist offer on this blog, as we could get more JP miles if we apply directly from jet website.

    Thanks for this wonderful blog

    • @Anoop, when we do a revamp of the site, for which we are in a forever long queue with BoardingArea, we would put in more disclosures. To add to that, we are not making any revenue around here so far. As for the economist offer, again, it was a public link and nothing we created. So I am not sure how you get the impression we were benefitting from it. And could you point me to the offer with Jet directly which gives more miles. I’d love to spread the word. Thank you for your consideration and time.

  3. As much as I appreciate your blog and all the info on it, just want to know if you are paid by Jet Airways, since you always go above and beyond to publish info about Jet Airways flights and also seem to support them no matter how horrible their service is.

  4. is there any offer is given to platinum card customers?
    If so, kindly let me know what is the procedure for getting it?

  5. I think the best Jet card would be HDFC Jet World card where we get 10k miles and issued mostly first year free (Smart pay, Bill pay, add on card, etc. need to be active for 3 months). Once we spend over 3 lakhs, then renewal fee is also waived. Has the same benefits of 5 kg extra baggage, dedicated counters, 5 years validity, etc.

  6. AJ,

    Until recently there was an offer where you could get 10K bonus miles if you booked it on JP shopping website. I got mine from there in June.

    Regards

  7. Hi Ajay,
    Can one link multiple credit cards to the same Jet-privilege account? I already have HDFC Jet Privilege card linked to my JP account.
