AMEX Gold/Platinum Charge vs Blue Cash

Just wondering - what are the advantages of AMEX Gold/Platinum charge cards vs the Blue Cash cards. Since the charge cards charge a fee, I assume they have better rewards and stuff? Examples please?

 

Thanks!

I think it's really an apples/oranges comparison, since the charge cards give your MR points, whereas the BCE/BCP are cash~back cards.     The PR Gold can quickly boost your rewards for travel expenses, and the Plat comes with travel perks like upgrades, lounge access, concierge services, etc.....

There completely different. Plat gets lounge access, $200 airline credit, priority pass, the list goes on and on.

 

Theres 2 types of gold; regular and PR. PR is the best MR earner and has several bonuses.

 

Blue cash is a credit card with a limit that gets factored in to uti. It earns cash back over MR points.
