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 significant benefits, all of which I have used at some point or the other.
The Jet Airways American Express Platinum Card offers the following benefits which are useful for accumulating JPMiles:
- 8 JPMiles for every Rs. 150 spent except for spend at Fuel, Insurance, Utilities and Cash Transactions, making it 5.33 JPMiles for every Rs. 100 spent.
- 16 JPMiles for every Rs. 150 spent for booking revenue tickets on jetairways.com, making it 10.66 JPMiles for every Rs. 100 spent.
- You also get 10,000 JPMiles in the first year towards obtaining the card, and 5,000 JPMiles towards renewing it every year.
- With a JPMiles Earning Co-branded card, you get to keep your JPMiles alive for five years instead of the usual three years.
Beyond that, there is a special offer currently being offered, which brings on an added 2,500 JPMiles as well.
Free Economy Class Ticket
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.
