Anyone else get on that 100k Amex Platinum offer? Daydreaming about how I'm going to use all those points.

Def worth it (even with that annual fee). http://thepointsguy.com/2016/05/10-things-to-do-amex-platinum/

Don't worry about "maximizing" the points. There will always be a "better" redemption. The best redemption is the one that gets you where you want to go. Round trip first class to Asia is a great redemption, but that also requires lots of planning, dedication, and guaranteed free time to take advantage of. A last minute trip to Vegas? That's a hell of a lot better than letting points sit unused in my book. Just make sure you take advantage of all the platinum benefits. Get global entry if you haven't already (apply right away, the process can take some time). Get gold status from Starwood and Hilton. Get your $200 fee credit.

I lucked out and got in on a 250k platinum promo #winning

GS1 and you all had to do was spending $55k within 6 months
