Platinum Edge v Platinum Reserve Flight Redemptions

Some of you may have seen on this blog that the American Express Platinum series has two cards which offer free return flights with luggage around Australasia. Where you can go depends on which card you have. Since this is a Perth based blog, here is a quick comparison between the AMEX Platinum Reserve and Platinum Edge  flight redemptions coming out of Perth.

Here are the destinations for the Platinum Edge Credit Card - the destinations are Newman, Karatha, Port Hedland, Broome, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
The following destinations are available for those holding the Platinum Reserve Credit Card. Clikc on the image to get a larger image. AS you can see, the options to go to Bali or Darwin are additions to the selection available for the Platinum Edge card. The price difference between the two cards can be up to $246. 

It is also important for me to note that these images came from the AMEX Australia website and were current at the time of this post. You can get a referral bonus 10,000 points if you don't have an AMEX card and you are referred by an existing AMEX Edge cardholder. If you like, sign up here to also get NO ANNUAL FEE for the first year + 10,000 bonus points which is worth about $70 in gift card redemptions.
