Though both of these cards are travel products, they differ heavily in features. The Platinum Card® from American Express is designed for luxury travel and has a much higher annual fee than the Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi at $695. It more than makes up for this fee with a hugely valuable welcome offer, numerous statement credit opportunities and access to the Amex Centurion Lounge. The Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi caters more to your average consumer, particularly those looking for a good local travel card. It lacks an annual fee and the perks you’ll find on a luxury product, but still offers strong cash back on gas, travel and dining.
