My girlfriend and I are going to start traveling a bit more. In June, we will be going to Nice, France and part of Italy for a week. I like the idea of the airport lounges, global entry, airline credits, room perks, etc. I have the CSP for no FTFs but it'd be nice to have an Amex with no FTFs as well. We plan on taking 1 or 2 international trips per year (similar to the France/Italy trip) from now on, and one or two shorter domestic trips per year. Will this will be enough annual travel to make up/exceed the AF? Also, when getting the Platinum, when is the annual fee billed? Is it on your next statement?
I don't know if I'm better off using the CSP or PRG, even though it doesn't have some of the benefits. I like my PRG, and if I look at Platinum I'm going to see if I can keep my PRG and have the annual fee waived since I'd be paying the hefty fee for the Platinum. I like the 2X and 3X point categories on the PRG, and not having to pay extra for my AU. If they won't let me keep my PRG for no annual fee, I'm not sure what I'll do. I'd appreciate any thoughts/opinions. Thanks.
