Amex Takes Dining Platinum

9/19/2014

You know how I feel about packing Platinum in my wallet when I travel. To me the perks of not having to wait in security lines and getting access to the First Class lounge at the airport is reason enough to have the card, but oh, there’s more….

 

Yup, Platinum Dining.

 

What’s Platinum Dining you ask? Well Amex has created this super cool perk for Cardmembers who have a penchant for food… Foodies, if you will. Which is right up my alley – and if you read this blog, probably yours too. This particular service gives Cardmembers access to reservations at hundreds of amazing restaurants in Canada, US and around the world. Not only can you book tough-to-get reservations at say Colette (our new fave spot) with your Platinum Concierge, but you also get added bonuses like a complimentary glass of champagne or an appetizer upon arrival.

Mentors have always played an important role in my life, especially in business. In fact, I don’t think I would be where I am today if other people didn’t plant seeds of wisdom into me.

travel tuesday: Key West!

I recently visited Key West Florida, the southernmost city in the USA. So southern that it’s actually very close to Cuba and only a 4 hour drive from Miami.  To get there by car you take the most scenic drive on the Overseas Highway that carries U.S. Route 1 through the Florida Keys and it’s worth every minute.

Key West has great weather all year round so it is a nice spot to visit that is not too far away. It does get very hot and humid in the summer though so if you’re like me and can’t handle the heat it’s maybe best to go in the fall or winter when it is not so hot!

Even though you’re in Florida, I felt like I was more in the Caribbean the people there are very friendly and laidback and not only love their city but want to show you around and tell you all about the history – which I just love.
