The Amex Card I Want

Postby MrMosby » Fri Jan 31, 2014 7:46 am

But doesn't east...

All the benefits of the Platinum
- Car Rental Status
+ Hilton Gold Status
+ PRG Bonus Point Categories
Annual fee probably somewhere around $550-$575

This would be a slam dunk, I'd spend everything on it.
Everyday Preferred $45K | Amex Platinum NPSL | Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve $45K | Delta Platinum $30K | Chase Sapphire Preferred $64K | Citi Hilton HHonors $45K | Discover IT $25K

I could add a lot to the list, but the value of the cards seem to be doing the reverse.
Travel Perks: AMEX Platinum, SPG Amex ($16300), Chase Sapphire Preferred ($11600)
5% Rotating Cashback: Discover IT ($5800) , Chase Freedom Signature Visa ($10000)
Low APR Card (7.99%): CFCU ($5000)
Co-Branded Card: Barclays Apple Visa ($3800)


Future: BCP, Close Apple Visa and open Arrival

You know this was a Platinum perk until 12/31, right?

Thanks for your feedback, MrMosby! We'll certainly be taking your, as we do with everyone else's, feedback into consideration when it comes to crafting changes or new cards... and I'll be certain to re-announce when/if Hilton Gold Status returns :-)

For that cost I'd need at least 3x points for every dollar spent, and 5x for gas, groceries and restaurants. A top notch concierge. Lounge access for every US airline. And a whole lot more.
AMEX PRG~1/14--backdated to 2012
AMEX BCE~6/13--backdated to 2012
Chase Freedom~5/13
Discover IT ~12/12

:cool:

Yes Concierge would need to recognize me by phone number.


I don't know if you'd get more than the points on the PRG though. Since the PRG is $175 and the Platinum is $450, $550 would be pretty reasonable especially if they added Hilton Benefits back.


Maybe $525 would be more reasonable?


Also, wouldn't mind if it was made of metal like my Ritz card. That bitch is heavy and catches everyone off guard.

Heck for that price I want them to loan me SRT's car, and his supermodel girlfriend for the weekend too! :D

What if they threw in Gold Status at the Bunny Ranch?

My want list is a lot smaller. I would like 1.5% on everything as an option to travel awards. Then it wouldn't cost me money every time I use my Gold card, and I could give all my business to AmEx.
