I simply don't date cards with AF period.
I want to build my AAoA and no fee cards are keepers in my book.
I think that is a non-optimal view! As others have said, if card 1's benefit - annual fee outweight benefits on card 2, card 1 is a better choice. (BCP vs BCE is such an example). And cards with AF can be keepers if they continue to provide good benefits, and there are many examples of this.

I think the upgrade is worth it if you travel. As someone else said, the Plat is definitely not a rewards card, but the perks are pretty good. The $200 per year incidentals credit takes the AF down to $250. That amount for the perks you get is worth it IMO...if you travel. I do not believe that the 100k offer is available as an upgrade. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong. No HP if you are a CM.

I tend not to keep AF cards for a (longtime) lol
Naturally, the moment a card's benefits are exceeded by it's cost, it should be purged. Of course, I'd do the same for a no fee card, unless it's amongst my oldest TLs.

No HP, but unless you're going to travel quite a bit, I don't think the card is worth it without the 50K bonus. If you're interested in the Platinum, it'd be better to opt for the MB Plat for the 50k MR promo.

You cant upgrade until you have has your current card 13 months... only can apply for a new card
I'm aware of that, i've actually accepted an upgrade a few months ago from Zync to PRG. Curious about this card tho, I know its more than likely out of my
league But its the Plat. Baller status,
So, not so much the actual benefits but rather baller status? LOL.
