EDITOR'S OVERVIEWThe Mastercard® Black Card and The Platinum Card® from American Express are two very different rewards cards. Amex Platinum is a high-tier travel rewards card that offers lots of rewards and high-value benefits. In contrast, the Mastercard Black Card’s cost far outweighs the rewards and perks it provides in return. Deciding between these two cards should be relatively easy once you see what they offer.
- Amex Platinum is well worth the cost for high spenders, and may give useful benefits such as airport lounge access and several different types of statement credits.
- The Mastercard Black Card is not really worth the cost, even though it may offer some statement credits. But it has slightly better international acceptance than Amex Platinum, and may provide some exclusive benefits at certain hotels.
