Updated: Jun 15, 2023

You're Military or a Spouse.

You've established decent credit.

You're ready to ball out.

You are ready to bang those metal cards on the bar but which one do you get? Most of your friends have talked to you about the AMEX Platinum and getting free food at the Centurion Lounge.

We are talking about the AMEX Platinum Card and the Chase Sapphire Reserve. Buckle up for safety, motherf***er. I'll share the secrets of these elite cards and show you which one is best for the Military.

AMEX Platinum Card

"This is that Grey Poupon, that Evian, that TED talk." - Kung Foo Kenny

Apply for this card with this link. With your new card, we both earn a bonus. Terms Apply.

You stroll through airport lounges like a boss, sleep off your rager with late check-out in an upgraded room, and have a personal concierge at your beck and call. The AMEX Platinum Card is synonymous with prestige and is many service members first open door a world of luxury. Not to mention, its Membership Rewards program and transfer partners offer a butt load of rewards waiting to be claimed. Military members have leveraged the power of this card to create unforgettable experiences that go beyond the ordinary.

Chase Sapphire Reserve

"Real G's move in silence like lasagna." - Weezy F. Baby

Earn 60,000 bonus points with Chase Sapphire Reserve. Hook a brother up.

My wife used to work at the State Department and everyone there gravitates to this card - and for good reason. The Chase Sapphire Reserve—a card that radiates sophistication and travel prowess. With generous travel credits, comprehensive travel insurance, and a wide global acceptance, it's a true contender. Plus, the points multiplier for most purchases is better than the AMEX. The Chase Ultimate Rewards program is a game-changer, which gives all kinds of valuable redemption offers. This one doesn't shine like the Platinum but is the classy workhorse of the two.

In one corner, we have the AMEX Platinum Card—a symbol of baller status. And in the opposite corner, the Chase Sapphire Reserve—a the classy. But here's the twist: You don't have to choose just one. Military members deserve to have both these cards in their arsenal, reaping the benefits from both sides of the luxury spectrum. Why settle for one slice of the pie when you can have the whole damn bakery?

Let's face it, life can sometimes feel like a never-ending competition. But when it comes to credit cards, we're flipping the script. Military members, you deserve the best, and that means having both the AMEX Platinum Card and the Chase Sapphire Reserve. Don't limit yourself to one card. With the AMEX Platinum Card, indulge in the lap of luxury, and with the Chase Sapphire Reserve, get the bonus points and miles. It's the ultimate power duo that will accelerate your hero story.

I could sit here and list all the benefits of each and give a long-detailed pro/con analysis. But both these cards are the best cards on the market with a ton of perks. And both get their fees waived for the Military. It's simply dumb not to have both of these cards in your wallets. So get one, get the sign-up bonus, then get the other. Then get your spouse one and then the other (fees are waived for them too).

So, fellow military members, go forth and conquer. Apply for both these cards, wield their power responsibly, and let the world be your playground.
