I agree with jlam. When I upgraded to gold, after hold a green card for just 13 months, I asked how long I'd have to wait to upgrade to Platinum. The rep said, "Oh, you're eligible to upgrade now."
Then he went into his pitch telling me about all the advantages and perks to Platinum. I graciously declined the Platinum but I'm sure I'll upgrade a year from now. So jlam is right. The criteria for Platinum is real close to Gold. Remember: going from the Green AF ($95) to the Platinum AF ($495) fee is a pretty big nut. It's something to think about.
