So far I've purchased 5 airline tickets, but I'm only passenger in one, small purchases at Nordstrom and Neiman, 2 new ipads and apple tv, a few Coach bags and I'm planning on buying another Louis Vuitton sometime this summer... besides that I don't really charge anything that could be considered "luxury", unless you consider buying food at Publix or Whole Foods instead of Costco a luxury... I just hate Costco
Did Amex change their upgrade policy?
I had the gold card for a year, and didn't use it that much. My biggest purchase was a mattress from Macy's, which was a little under $1000. Other than that i spend maybe $200-400 a month on the card and still got an "you been pre-approved to upgrade to a Platinum card".
I went for it and got the Platinum card without any problems.
Now i use my Platinum for almost everything, and probably spend like $3000-5000 a month on the card.
