American Express Platinum CardI have been complaining and complaining about American Express and not reaping the rewards of the card.

Well, today, this morning, it came in handy.

I missed my flight due to someone getting hit by a car on the Garden State Parkway. It caused a 40 minute drive to take over 2 hours. We missed the flight by minutes. In any event, I hope the guy is OK, I heard he was taken to the hospital. When we passed the accident, there were like 5 cops there and two lanes were closed (of the three).

We got to the airport, they said we missed baggage checkin by minutes. So now my wife and I are on standby for the next flight, hope we make it.

During that time, we decided to try the Continental Presidential Suite. It is a reward one gets for being an AMEX platinum card holder. It worked, I am sitting here now. My wife is watching TV and drinking some fancy drink, while watching TV. I am on the free wifi, drinking coke and blogging away. This is a nice way to be on standby.

You see, I just don't complain on this blog. :)
