So, that being said, unless there was something I definitely and absolutely wanted from the Platinum RIGHT NOW, I would wait it out.
Unless you really make use of the card and its services, the fee may or may not be 'worth it'.
When I had a Gold card I was invited to apply for Platinum. I couldn't afford it at the time so I said no. Later when I COULD afford it, they said I was not eligible to upgrade. I had to wait another year before it showed up as an invite again. It was based on some formula for spending that invited me.
