Prestige Card Benefits

$250 Travel Credit– Each calendar year you get a $250 travel credit that will be automatically applied to any travel purchases.

Priority Pass– You can get airport lounge access at 1,400+ lounge around the world with a free Priority Pass membership with the Prestige card.

Fourth Night Free– You can get the fourth night free twice per calendar year with the Prestige Card.

Cell Phone Protection– Cardmembers who pay their cell phone bill with the card are covered up to $1,500 per year for up to five phones.

Global Entry or TSA Pre-Check– Cardmembers get a Global Entry or TSA Pre-Check credit every five years. I recommend Global Entry because it also includes TSA Pre-Check. If you already have one of them, you could always use the card to purchase it for a family or friend.

No Foreign Transaction Fees– You can use your Prestige card anywhere in the world without having to pay foreign transaction fees, which saves you 3% in fees.
