    Basically you are paying for the bonus miles and lounge access with the high fee. Not much reasons for SFC members to apply. And I like that Simon doesn't qualify :p

    Guys.... double Okidoki points = AWESOME 100 yen = 2 miles. That`s awesome. Add the Okidoki bonuses with that are it`s easily worth that with all those benefits and COME ON who doesn`t want a Platinum card.

    The 30 year old thing is just a formality and overlooked if you`re awesome like me but sadly wasn`t part of the first 5,000 people to get invited. Family members are cheaper with this card than normal Gold SFC. 24 hour support sounds awesome too!

    This changes everything as I had planned to try and get JCB Black Amex version called The Class with full details here which is actually cheaper than this ANA branded Platinum card. I was going to keep a original JCB card from now to keep with basis for applying for The Class....Both seem to have the same requirements though....

    Much more.....depending on the country, the annual fee varies widely as do some of the benefits, but figure in the $2K to $4K per year range, with a bigger fee the first year ("nonrefundable").

    Nope. Supposably you get CX Diamond in Australia too. But hey I still think this JCB deal is awesome. I shall wait to see if the upgrade offer appears in my JCB when i log in from next month.

    None of you probably have JCB so it`s up to me to the lead.

    I was thinking... Do you think the travellers insurance is better than the Gold version?

    Still not appearing anywhere online on either jcb or Ana site. Maybe it's exclusively invite only.

    Official details here http://www.ana.co.jp/amc/promo/jcb_premium/

    Found another link here http://jcb-card.jp/an4/

    Comes with Priority pass and some funky luggage tags (only first 5,000 people to apply)

    Platinum members desk only opens normal business hours so every day 9-5 which is lame rather than 24/7 however the conceirge service is open 24/7.
