Most transfer partners have introduced fuel surcharges and have changed their award charts to make it less attractive (e.g. Delta, Aeroplan, British Airways). The best deals can be found with Singapore Airlines Krisflyer and Alitalia MilleMiglia (though booking can be difficult!)

What we like about this card

We have reviewed the American Express Platinum card before. The travel benefits for this card are amazing. Centurion Lounges are fantastic (though there are only two so far). The additional benefits are easily worth $450 and Membership Rewards are a great currency to have.
