and I haven't used mine this year as this is my first year with the platinum, I need to start looking for a reason to use it as our Honeymoon this year is international and i'm also using skymiles... maybe NYE in NYC
Off-topic but that raises an interesting question I think:
Are there any cards which have an non-AF / AF version (BCE/BCP, CS/CSP) or even a AF / higher AF version (Delta Gold / Platinum Skymiles) that have any difference in underwriting criteria? I'm struggling to think of any that we know anecdotally but admittedly there are some lenders vis a vis Citi that I don't know at all.
It doesn't seem like there are.
Platinum vs. Gold aside, I just realized that if I went through with the Gold, the savings in the first year would pay the AF for 6 years (or 7 if you include the first year with no AF). But at the cost of an additional tradeline to manage with benefits realized just a couple times a year. Then again, my total CL is under 20% of my income. Would be nice to have a higher available CL overall.
The Platinum is a better value if you're going to use the Companion ticket also!
