Looking for advice on the best credit cards to have in Finland which provide benefits such as airline lounge club access and points, etc. Thoughts?

Dinners used to have free access but now they are charging 18€ for each entry. Probably some Amex from Gold up includes Priority Pass but the yearly fee is from 170€ up.

Diners and Amex are only for Donald Drumpf and friends.

If it looks like you're getting something for free it's because you have already paid for it many times over!

I was offered Amex as a retailer and quickly found out they took 5% provision.5X then and moreX now for Visa and MC.

As I was running a low margin system - it was impossible to knock off 5 % - and that was without ALV - so it went up significantly.

I did get an Amex card myself many years earlier but quickly found when using on trips that only the high-margin shops honored it.

Overall - Diners-Amex are not cards for ordinary folk.
