If you are cool with closing an account, and starting a new one I say do it. Or you can keep the gold card with the double points, and have them apply toward your platinum MR First account, and then cancel it before the year is up. If you are charging 70k to your card a month you definitely want the additional benefits the platinum card gives you.
It is not unusual for American Express to request payment in the first 90 days, as you have not established a history with them yet. I like to say that an American Express Platinum card are the keys to kingdom... BUT the gates haven't fully opened yet. Once they do, you may feel like you're on cloud 9. Pun intended.
Every relationship with American Express is different and unique. I tell people that I love my American Express Platinum card. I give it the respect that it gives me.
