I believe the underwriting is the same...

 

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.


Citi Hilton and Hilton Reserve? I could be wrong about this, but they just seem so different. Anyone have any ideas on this?

 

Also Citi AA Advantage Select vs. AA Exec WEMC? United Explorer vs. Club?
