American Express announced that starting in February 2019, business platinum cardholders in the US will have access to a number of new benefits, including complimentary access to WeWork locations around the world.
It could be a useful perk for business travelers, who will now have a year of access to WeWork spaces in the 18 countries where the company operates. For WeWork, it’s another feather in its cap of seemingly endless business deals.
WeWork these days is much more than a office-leasing company. It now designs offices, manages apartments, hosts events, and runs a fitness center, a summer camp, a network of schools, a coding bootcamp, a startup incubator, a digital marketing company, and Meetup.
In the eyes of some, it’s even more than that. WeWork co-founder Adam Neumann told the New York Times earlier this year that WeWork is a “state of consciousness.” If so, it’s a state that American Express business platinum cardholders will now be able to tap into.
