I have not used the services or the benefits.

People vary. Some like relying on concierge services and so on. If I had to guess it's probably more likely that the older demographics would still find such services useful.
I've suspected that. If I had R-C or Amex Platinum, I'd have fairly high expectations about what they could accomplish. But I wouldn't expect very much from a concierge service that has no big AF to help fund it.*
From VS and WMC concierge I'd expect nothing more than some web browsing and a phone call or two with no special access or leverage. I don't expect they can arrange or find out anything I can't do as quickly with my phone.
*Unless the service is exclusive in some way other than having an AF. An example would be Discover's premium card, with no AF but available only by invitation after a history of heavy spending. In that case, the money comes from the large processing fees.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt, Arrival
May close or PC: Prestige, BrooksBros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech
