    I change my mind. Neither. I don't want any more people at the lounges

    The ONLY reason to get an Amex platinum is if you really want a lounge in SF international (G gates don't have any priority pass lounges).

      They recently opened a couple in domestic where you get a 28$ meal. Not sure if that’s G gate, but it was pathetic to not have anything in domestic.

      G gates are international... Most of star Alliance flies out of there. A gates has the Lufthansa lounge, but that's not accessible from the G gates.

      Preferred is 100 bucks vs Reserve is 450. But when you do the math of benefits you end up earning similar amount of points. I would prefer Preferred still.

      There’s 300$ straight back off the 450 for travel. So it’s effectively 150 for reserve

    Platinum is better if you do a lot of traveling with flights and hotels. Otherwise go with Chase

    If you can only have one card, get the chase.

    But there is some value in having both. For example, the combination of amex lounge access as well as the trip/baggage delay/interruption benefit from chase is pretty good.

    If you mostly fly business class, you don’t need those benefits because the airline would look after its business class people - go for the 5X points with amex instead and you don’t need the chase.
