Depends on the sign up bonus. I'd wait unless it was 100k

Not worth the fee IMO

Yo OP, if you stay in hotels 100+ nights a year you are flagged as a frequent traveler by the firm and they'll auto-upgrade your corporate to platinum and pay the fee for you

I've got 2 personal for a decade and Corp,since coming to Accenture

EY1- the firm will pay the fee, but not automatically- you have to expense it each year to be reimbursed when it shows up on your Amex bill. And the charge doesn't show up in your recent charges on the time and expense app, so you have to watch for it each year so it doesn't sneak by in your bill.

If the firm pays for the fee do it

I like it for lounge access, points

P1 You know the Platinum gives no bonus points in any category, right? Outside of sign up bonus, Platinum should almost never be used

Looks like chase sapphire reserve is a better deal overall unless your company is paying for the platinum annual fees. Reserve is better/matches signup bonus, points per dollar and lounge access.

During the difficult time, be mindful while going out for protest. Being an immigrant, it’s a high risk for your visa renewal. There is ongoing police activity and probability of getting your name in police record, which will impact your visa renewal. Be careful and stay safe and don’t do anything which is unlawful in a foreign country (not that you do unlawful in your home country).
