This is crazy crazy, the 24qt gold plated card has a 900 annual fee, the titanium carbon fiber card has a 195.00 annual fee and the black card has the same as before 495.00 wow look at the annual fee for the gold one jesus....
Comparing them the Titanium card is a basic travel card with a nice name 1pt per dollar.
Black gives you 100 airline credit and global entry refund up to 100
Gold is the same as black but gives you 200 airline credit.
The airline credits are not toward the cost of the ticket. It would cover baggage fees, etc...
Honestly if you want a cool looking card with CSP benefits the Titanium would be the best way to go. 195 AF isn't that bad if you like to pay for the cards design.
If you travel often or want a prestige card just get the Amex Platinum.
