If you fly delta and could use the mqm bump that the reserve gives you whem you hit 30/60k spend then id go with them

I have the Amex Plat. Will say the major factor for me is that their customer service is second to none, and the same goes for their supporting benefits (car/baggage insurance, trip emergencies, purchase protection). The rewards aren't stellar, but it's my preferred card.
