I’ve reviewed about American express platinum Travel card recently and as you know, its impressive to see overall 8% reward rate as Indigo/Taj vouchers and so i planned to get hands on it. Its gonna be very much useful for me as i’ve planned for couple of domestic trips in coming months and Indigo being the best airline to fly within India, it sounds nice deal for me.
American Express India Application Process:
American Express application process was a breeze, the most user friendly and simplified process that i’ve ever seen. I applied offline through Amex sales guy and once i submitted all documents, i got an email in matter of few hours stating that i am conditionally approved for the card.
Within a week, verification process got completed and i received the card in hand the next week. The whole process took just 10 days. That’s incredibly fast compared to any other credit card issuer in India. For example, HDFC/ICICI/SBI takes more than 20 days to issue the card from the date of application.
My Experience with Amex Customer Support:
Amex have the best in class customer support in India. They can understand what you speak, they can solve most issues over the call, they’re nothing less than an expert. They’ve 24/7 support line with energetic executives on phone even on 2Am.
Every single CC executive that i’ve spoken has very good knowledge about the credit cards and can tackle rare questions very easily. Added to that, they’re extremely friendly in beginning the conversation which you might love every single time, though sometimes odd to see a stranger greeting you like 10 Yr old friend 😀
So far it feels really special to be with American Express (India) i would say.
- I recently used the Taj Voucher to stay at Taj Santacruz, Mumbai
Some Useful Tips:
- You can change your billing cycle with Amex credit cards. Just make sure there is no outstanding balance at the time of request.
- You may have upto 3 Amex cards at a time. Apply for the subsequent cards after 6 months of using your first card for better approval success rate.
- Spend more to get higher credit limit on your card easily. Especially Amex love those who spend much.
That being said, i’m planning to opt for American express gold charge card in coming months. (Update: I got it!)
