    As of Thursday, AmEx Platinum Card users will earn five points for every dollar spent directly with airlines or on AmEx’s travel website, a spokeswoman said, up from the current one point per dollar earned on airfare. The company wanted to improve the program ahead of the busy holiday travel season. The reward changes will be automatic and apply to all Platinum Card holders, the spokeswoman said.
