AMEX needs to step up their game. Fast.
What changes would you suggest for the Platinum?
Someone making $10/hr might like using a BCE or a similar card for the rewards, but probably isn't too focused on lounge access and seat upgrades on $400-ish AF cards.
If someone with a low income (who, in most cases, won't fly much) wants an air perks card, it's probably for the illusion of status and/or to impress gullible dates/coworkers. Such a person would mostly care that it's an Amex and looks nice - not how it compares to R-C/Prestige/AA Exec in value.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt
Plan to PC: Prestige to DC
SD with activity alerts, might close: Arrival and Brooks Bros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech, BofA Travel PH
