AMEX Plat Upgrade

Was checking out to see if I have any offers and its says Uprade to Platinum on there :smileysurprised:

 

The AF is pretty high but i;d like to weigh the pro's/con;s on this card. Not even sure if its worth it for my spend. Is a HP required?

 

Plat cardholders chime in!

Re: AMEX Plat Upgrade

Also since I recently upgraded to a PRG so would my AF be reduced if I upgraded??

Re: AMEX Plat Upgrade

Do you travel often, either domestically or internationally?

If so then the lounge access, airline credits, and no foreign exchange fees would likely be the best benefits to compensate for the AF.

Log into your account and click the additional cards tab top right corner and click on view all personal cards. If you have any upgrade/preapproved offers it will be on the left hand side.

Re: AMEX Plat Upgrade

You want NO part of that card nor it's AF until they offer up a 100k point offer.

 

Most of us have been on here w/ you long enough to know that your income/spend doesn't "easily" justify a $450/yr card - that's a LOT of spend. Nor does mind....

 

But that is why I am also waiting for the 100k offer next year.  

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board and $500 secured CC
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board and $80k in revolving credit

Get those baddies removed!!!

I'm taking a guess i wouldn't get that offer if it was an upgrade not a cold app.
