Do your own analysis based on your needs/wants.
We're hanging on to both until we've had a chance to determine if one is a better fit than the other. I suspect that it will be the CSR since we can get better value per UR point than we can with MR. That's one are where you need to do your own analysis, running the numbers for your spend and how you can redeem points with each program. The Centurion lounges are very nice but we're not finding ourselves frequently in airports that have them. One just opened up in our home airport but we rarely use lounges at our own airport. Never had problems fully utilizing the airline credit on the Platinum but the travel credit on the CSR seems to be a lot more flexible.

For redemptions for travel via the UR portal which is just one redemption option. People are fixating on the 1.5 cents via the UR portal for travel but need to do their own due diligence.
