Anyone upgraded their corporate Amex to platinum? Is it worth it? Specifically wondering if you can more points per dollar than with the green card.

I'd say upgrading your corporate to platinum is not because then you're responsible for that $600 annual fee. BUT it is probably worth it to get the personal platinum card through the corporate card bonus offer. And then you can accumulate points for work and play together.

That's right BCG1, only for new personal accounts. This could also just be a custom EY-Amex partnership offer and not necessarily available to anyone with a corporate green card.

Also there are other similar options for the gold, green, and blue cash preferred cards with varying levels of statement credits and bonus points, if we dont want to go all the way to platinum.

Not entirely sure how the shared points pool works but i know we can transfer the corporate card points to personal so they are useful.

I’ve had the Corporate AXP since before the firm stopped reimbursing it for frequent travelers. It does automatically enroll you in Membership Rewards, which effectively knocks like $95 off the fee. The fee is also sticking at $550 for at least another year, and unlike the more expensive personal card, it will also still allow you to bring guests into Centurion Lounges when that policy changes.

It’s mainly a benefits card. If you regularly fly Delta via airports with a Sky Club, or transit through airports with a Centurion Lounge, it’s valuable. It also gets you rental car status (at least with National) that lets you get decent cars, and I think it gives you entry level Hilton status if for some reason you can’t stay at a Marriott property.

Thanks. Already have a good personal card so I don't think the perks would be worth it. Was hoping it would get more points than the green one to justify the higher cost.

Chase Freedom Unlimited vs Chase Freedom Flex. Thoughts on which to get?

It seems the only different is the Unlimited gives you 1.5% on all “other” purchases, and the Flex gives you only 1% on “other” but a 5% category you choose each quarter.

Both have the same intro offers, including 5% groceries for the first year, and 5% travel thru Chase, 3% restaurants and drug stores forever.

Thinking the Flex is the better pick out of the two but maybe im missing something
