The points add up quickly as well.
I received 300 in statement credits in the first 3 months.
There customer service and concierge alone are worth the 450.
Travel perks are the best portion of the rewards, but the card has numerous other benefits that I love.
Another great perk is if you stay in a hotel and purchase the room with your card they normal will upgrade you a level simple because you used your platinum card.
I am not an objective observer though. I love AMEX. I have their Hilton card, Blue Cash Preferred, and the Plat card. I also have their High yield personal savings as well.
I know many in the forums feel that Amex can be a bit touchy, but keep your credit score high, don't miss a single payment, PIF every two months, and they will give you large credit limits, and support all your goals.
Plus they back date! I had the standard blue for 8+ years. Now I have three amex with 8+ years of AOA.
