    $200 Airline Fee Credit

    Enroll and select a qualifying airline. Then receive up to $200 a year in statement credits when incidental fees, such as checked bags and in-flight refreshments, are charged by the airline to your Business Platinum Card Account.*

Card Members can receive one $100 statement credit every 5 years for a Global Entry application fee charged to each eligible Card. Each Additional Card on Centurion and Platinum Card accounts is also eligible for the $100 statement credit. To receive the credit, the Global Entry application must be charged on the Additional Card.
