They definitely care when you go to cancel your card in regards to retention offers.
But that being said, I really can't believe people (with the USA card) put so much spend on a Platinum card unless they really want to try to get a Centurion invite.
I find Amex MR points to be pretty useless compared to many other credit card products out there. There are some nice "Sweet rewards" since as Korean and Singapore First Class but that's about it. But even there, the SPG Amex offers most people better transfer options.
I keep my Platinum for airline lounge access but that is about it. I was naÃ¯ve and put about $400k on my Platinum in 2012 and Amex offered me 50k MR points to keep the card when I went to cancel it but now all my spending goes to either Chase UR programs (better transfer partners in the USA) or different (non Membership Rewards) Amex products.
