Base on my current expenses habits, the Premier Rewards Gold looks more profitable than the Platinum.
AMEX should really start thinking on improving Platinum benefits. I know the card is meant for travel and leisure, but it should also be able to offer good benefits for daily use, like improving the MRP per usage.
I am wondering why the points per dollars are better on PRG than Platinum. What a heck, even the new low end AMEX - MB card has better points per dollars than the Platinum.
What do you think?
It's been almost two years, but (if you still get on here) i'd like to know what people do over the years with their cards, and why the change?
I'm contemplating downgrading to the PRG. Only problem is I don't know my travel patterns for next year, so I don't know if I'll need lounge access or not which is a huge factor in the Plat or PRG play.
