Military and AMEX Platinum

Well, I am in a pickle. I am eligible to upgrade to AMEX Plat. I found out through co-workers that AD military can have the annual $450 waived. Sure enough, I called and it is true. The problem is that I am getting more rewards through my PRG. I don't fly as much and I could benefit the hotel stay. What I want to know is, should go for it just because of the no annual fees or stick to my PRG. The only way I would upgrade is if I can continue get the annual fee waived when I am a retiree. Don't hurt to take advantage of....;-)

Re: Military and AMEX Platinum

Any chance they'll waive the AF for the gold card also?

As far as I know Amex waives the AF on all of their cards for AD military. I'd give them a call.

As far as i know, they waive the AF on all cards for active duty, deployed. Send in your orders and it's done.

I called CS to waived my AF for my PRG.  The only reason why I would upgrade to Plat would to be  flashy.  That would be kinda shallow...:smileyfrustrated:

Re: Military and AMEX Platinum

Yeah I agree that if they'll waive all the fees why not have both ??
