Re: Amex Platinum to Costco Card AMEX, Hilton Honors AMEX, Capital One Venture, or CSP?

Go for it! You won't be sorry. Great cards. 

 

Don't forget about the CSP signup bonus. It's currently 40,000 points, which is worth $500 if used as "pay with points". (if you can accumulate the points, the points are generally better used when transferred to partner airlines like United.)

 

Not sure if you're familiar with the benefits of HHonors Gold. It includes upgrades, free breakfast, free Internet. Like I said, a bargain and a half!

I think I'm going to hold off a bit...maybe pay off some bills first then try in a few months from now...ha.
