When AA was the only ticket in town from my city, my AAdvantage Platinum Select was definitely worth keeping. I flew AA around five or six times a year (one of those internationally), often with bags and often with my boyfriend. So that was $100 round trip for the bags we weren't paying. The 10 percent bonus for redeeming miles was nice, too. I was earning about 1 domestic rewards flight per year. So, with the flight and the bags, I was getting $500-$600 per year worth out of my card.
Recently, though, United and Frontier started competing out of my airport with more convenient times, better routes, and ticket prices a good $70-$100 below American. So I cancelled the card.
I think airline cards can be worth it, for sure IF you're concentrating nearly all your travel on a single airline.
