Now I'm starting to travel a bit more for work and am trying to settle on a frequent hotel/flyer program. I have traditionally flown Delta (my city is a hub) and stay at Hilton hotels Amex, however on my Sapphire card it appears the best shake I get is if I book United/Marriott versus Delta/Hilton on Amex.
Now with that said, the platinum has a few more benefits the CSP card doesn't have such as:
- Airline incidental credits
- International companion ticket, which could be a huge benefit, but assuming I fly international for personal travel every three years the international companion ticket is a wash (and I believe there is blackouts).
- Global Entry
- Airport Lounges (Normally my layovers are short so I don't get to even really use them)
Is there anything I'm missing that would tip the scale in favor of Amex over my CSP (i.e. worth paying the $355 a year extra)?
