It is a conundrum with AMEX
When I first applied 2 months ago I had a philosophical discussion with the CSR who took my application about the 2 cards. It seems that the Gold Premier Rewards card is great for preparing to travel (building up points for miles) but then, once you want to use them, you are much better off with the Platinum card.
I chose to just get the Platinum card.
If you decide to upgrade, let me know, I will happily refer you.
