Nedbank introduces new Amex Platinum Card in metal with exclusive benefits 


Nedbank has launched  the new Nedbank American Express Platinum Card in South Africa. Both new and existing Nedbank American Express Platinum Card Members can now enjoy an extensive range of enhanced lifestyle, travel and service benefits and a sleek metal card.

The new Platinum Card benefits include exclusive dining discounts of up to 20% at 30 premium restaurants across the country, 30% off at aha Hotels & Lodges, a range of discount offers of up to 50% off from home décor, food, liquor and beauty services providers, and up to R500 back annually in statement credits when paying with a Platinum Card for three months of streaming services at Spotify, Amazon Prime, Netflix, Audible, and more.

The new benefits are in addition to existing benefits that Card Members can enjoy:

  • Access to more than 1,200 airport lounges worldwide
  • Dedicated Platinum Concierge 24/7 travel and lifestyle services
  • Protection coverage with insurance benefits such as Travel Insurance of up to R10 million
  • Up to a 15% discount on car rental, upgrades, and priority service from Hertz, Avis or SIXT
  • An accelerated 1.5 Membership Rewards points for every R5 of eligible spend.

For a limited time, new Nedbank American Express Platinum Card Members may be eligible to get their Amex experience off to a flying start with 30,000 Membership Rewards points, as a once-off welcome bonus.

Membership Rewards points are automatically loaded onto a complimentary Membership Rewards Card which turns points into cash for Card Members to spend in whatever way they please – including paying with points at any American Express-accepting store around the world or withdrawing cash at any American Express-accepting ATM.

The new Platinum Card fee is R490, charged on a monthly basis. In the past, Card Members were required to pay their Platinum Card fee annually in arrears. Moving to monthly fee offers Card Members an easier way of managing their Card expenses throughout the year. The metal card will be immediately available to new Card Members and will be rolled out to existing Card Members on their Card Membership anniversary date or card renewal date, whichever comes first.
