Platinum because of the travel benefits, but as far as every day spending, my BCP. Gas and groceries are two of my larger expenses. (my gf and her two kids moved in with me last year) Also, I drink a good bit of beer, so getting 6% back by buying it all at the grocery store makes me happy. I spend enough on the BCP to cover both annual fees. Cheers!

Centurion - because it's the one Amex card I simply will never have. It's like that super hot model you drool over - you'd love to come home to her at night but you know the only place you are going to do that is in your dreams!

Gold PR, the extra 15k a year MR points are nice. Plus I rack up the 3x points without even trying. Platinum would be nice but I do not travel, my wife does. However she uses her companies amex for all her expenses, flights, etc....

Definitely going to be the Platinum, Bear.

I made my AF back on the travel benefits within 4 months this year. If there was a Platinum rewards with restaurant multiplier, I'd never spend on anything else.

I think the perfect combination is a business Platinum and a PRG. Perfect combination of points multipliers and travel benefits.

Right now, I have a person Platinum and a BRG. This must change.

What about personal Platinum and Business Rewards Gold? I'll be getting that combination soon.
