How would one find out, get one and which card? The Charge Card?
It is the Platinum Charge Card, just been released in the US.
I know it's only the states... now can we get it here in Aus?
I was meaning to call AMEX today re this. I'll ring them in the morning and find out the situation.

I am a platinum charge card holder. I called up the concierge around 2 weeks ago about it and they said there are currently no plans to bring it to Australia which is unfortunate.

I also have a Plat card. called yesterday and had the same result. they said that they are always reviewing their product offering but at this point were not aware of any plans.
Maybe we need to keep calling...they might get the message..!

Doubtful. The premium card market is so competitive in the US they have to keep pushing the mark, AMEX Platinum is unrivalled here.

The downside of the metal cards is that they set off airport scanners if you keep your wallet in your pocket. They make your wallet yet another thing that you have to pull out and put in the tray for separate scanning.

Doesn't everyone just put their wallet in the tray as a matter of course anyway? I know I do. And of course in the US, they want everything out of your pockets.

Hi all - hopefully I'm not getting your hopes up, though I have asked 2 sources for clarification on what I recently spotted.
